We will accept entries for the Old Settlers Reunion through September 25, 2020. All entries and the winners will be shown on our Facebook page, Effingham County Courthouse Museum Effingham IL on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Winners will be notified and prizes may be picked up at the museum or mailed to you, whichever method is most convenient for you.
