[July 08, 2016]   MOUNT PULASKI - Starting at 9 a.m. Saturday morning, the city of Mount Pulaski will be abuzz with the new Vinegar Hill Market Day being held on the square in downtown Mount Pulaski. The Market Days are sponsored by the city of Mount Pulaski and the Mount Pulaski Merchant Association.

The Market will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 9th, August 13th, September 10th, and October 8th. Currently, there are 20 vendors signed up for the first market. Those vendors will be offering everything from antiques and handcrafted merchandise to produce and baked goods.

While in town, donít forget to visit the lovely retail shops on the square, and drop in at one of the several eateries for a nice lunch.

Also this week there will be special drawings held at the Mount Pulaski Courthouse.

According to Barbara Stroud-Borth, supervisor at the Courthouse, the repairs inside are now complete, and the Courthouse is open for tours on Saturday. In celebration there will be a drawing for gift certificates held on Saturday at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon and 1 p.m.

Repairs made to the courthouse were paid for by the Mount Pulaski Courthouse Foundation with gifts received from many local folks as well as various organizations, and supporters of the courthouse from around the world. The Courthouse Foundation issued a check to the State of Illinois to cover the costs of the new roof and interior repairs included replacing broken roof trusses.
