CARRIER MILLS – In 2022 the Village of Carrier Mills will celebrate its 150th anniversary or its Sesquicentennial. And as part of the celebration, the Illinois Secretary of State has approved a specialty plate that commemorates the event.
A local graphics company helped with the design and the plate went on sale Tuesday.
Orders have to be placed in person at the Carrier Mills water office, located at 101 North Mill Street in Carrier Mills. The cost is $25 for the pair of plates, which will be delivered in time for the annual event in September.
When you come in be sure to bring your driver’s license and current registration for the vehicle they will be displayed on.
Carrier Mills Village President Tracy Felty said, “this is good way to commemorate the anniversary and it is something that has never been done before.”
Felty said they used a combination of the school colors and the village logo of the original mill.
Orders will be taken until May 20th, so the village can get all the orders placed, printed and returned for display which begins Sept. 22.
