The Village of Teutopolis’ new subdivision project – Prairie View – located in the southeast part of town is progressing by leaps and bounds, both in infrastructure and lot sales! Already ten lots have been sold in Phase I with high interest in the remaining lots. Persons interested in purchasing a lot in Phase I of the subdivision, or just wanting information on the lots, can drop by the Village Hall at 106 West Main Street during normal business hours and pick up a folder containing all the pertinent information regarding size of lots, subdivision covenants, etc. You can also view the covenants and agreement below. Construction cannot begin on the lots until infrastructure is complete and the lots are actually marked. Please call the Village Hall at 217-857-3543 with any questions.

As Junior Miss Effingham County Fair Queen Elizabeth Weidner has been active in many causes and community service events. This month her focus is on the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals (Cardinal Glennon, St. Louis Children's Hospital) in an effort to collect any NEW unopened hotel samples (baby samples are welcome too) that can be distributed in March to these hospitals for family use during inpatient stays for parents/caregivers. Something as simple as soap, shampoo, shower gel, toothpaste, deodorant, brushes, baby wash, etc can be forgotten/not packed or simply used up because of a lengthy hospital stay. The hospitals often will keep a stash of these donated items on each floor, and parents can go to the Ronald McDonald Lounge to request/grab a hot shower. A great way if you travel a lot to get rid of those extra travel amenities that have piled up in a random cabinet or suitcase somewhere!

For drop off locations and/or to make arrangements for pick-up...please email jenniferanneweidner@yahoo.com Lets support Elizabeth and her worthy cause!
