Casimir Pulaski Awards
nominations due: August 15th
On September 6th at the Mt. Pulaski American Legion Hall awards banquet, the Mt. Pulaski Courthouse Foundation will recognize two Casimir Pulaski bronze bust awards this year, one each for the “Most Distinguished Mt. Pulaski Citizen” and for the “Most Distinguished Mt. Pulaski High School Alumni”. Ten such awards were presented last year by the Mt. Pulaski 175th Anniversary Committee. Nomination forms are available at: Mt. Pulaski Courthouse, DPMC Insurance, Farmers Bank, Insurance, Mt. Pulaski Museum, Salt Creek Attic, or on www.mtpulaskiil.com (deadline: Aug. 15). Tickets for the dinner will also be available – dinner includes entre, dessert, drink. There will be live music, with the awards presentation rounding out the evening. The $20 fee will be applied to the cost of the dinner, music bronze busts and the new Mt. Pulaski Courthouse Foundation (see June 2nd issue of Lincoln Courier).
Category 1: Distinguished Citizen Award
The City of Mt. Pulaski has always been blessed to have citizens who have stepped forward to make our community a better place to live. Last year, five were awarded the Casimir Pulaski award for this category. This year, this honor will recognize another one of our citizens on the basis of his or her community involvement, influence and dedication of time and energies in making our community a better place to live.
Category 2: Distinguished Alumni Award
Last year, this Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to five of our Mount Pulaski High School alumni based not only on their professional achievements in their chosen vocation, but also on their dedication and commitment to endeavors and accomplishments outside their chosen field - whether their accomplishments impact their chosen fields today or did so in the past. This year, another distinguished alumni will be recognized.
