We are proud to announce that Pekin Main Street was awarded a 2013 Lt. Governor's Excellence Award for Downtown Revitalization in Design at the annual Illinois Main Street Conference in Pontiac, Illinois. The award was presented for the public/private partnership that made the renovation of the Fusion Building possible. We are proud to share this award with Pastor Dave Carrington and the members of Driven Church for their hard work and tenacity to see this project through. Congratulations!
