The Mount Prospect Centennial Commission is sponsoring an online auction for several sought-after commemorative items from the 100th anniversary of Mount Prospect’s incorporation in 1917. Bidding on all of the items will remain active at www.mountprospect100.com until Sunday, December 3, 2017 when the winners will be announced at the conclusion of the 30th Annual Holiday Housewalk. One can bid directly on Bidding Owl by clicking here. Three framed posters signed by photographer Mike Zarnek will be auctioned off. In addition, six attractively-boxed sets featuring one of the few remaining brass 50th anniversary coins from 1967, a silver coin (encased in plastic) that was struck in 1992 to celebrate the 75th anniversary of Mount Prospect and a limited-edition crystal ornament etched with the Centennial logo are being auctioned.
Bidders who would like to view the posters in person may see them on display in the first floor lobby of the Mount Prospect Public Library, 10 S. Emerson St. (Read Full Press Release).
