The Macoupin Economic Development Partnership is gearing up for its annual dinner this Thursday in Gillespie at the Civic Center. The guest speaker will be Prairie Farms Dairy CEO Ed Mullins. They will also honor the Macoupin Made Young Leader of the Year.
That is an award that was created last year to recognize people between the ages of 21 and 45, who live or work in the county, and display an overall commitment to and impact on the Macoupin County region. MEDP member Courtney Wood says there were about 50 people nominated last year.
