The Central Illinois Connection moves Central Illinois forward in community and economic growth by fostering collaboration and connectedness between our small towns. Involving youth, retirees, and other adults, it creates a vibrancy to act as the catalyst to ignite this growth and once again stimulate home-town pride and ownership in our rural communities.

This ongoing “connected-ness” initiative builds excitement, promotes teamwork, and sparks innovation, drive, and enthusiasm to produce a sustainable culture which sets our small communities apart as the best place in the world to reside, work, visit, and enjoy wholesome family living.
