READER’S CHOICE 2022

Journal-Courier

Congratulations to all businesses, services, and individuals recognized in the Journal-Courier’s 2022 Reader’s Choice Awards. All the votes were counted and the results are listed throughout this section. As always, we’d like to thank you our readers! Thank you for taking the time to vote online this year as we had record number voting! West Central Illinois is only as strong as the local businesses and the people who work and live here are. We appreciate the hard work and dedication of each and every one as well as the role you play in our community. Many of the businesses and winners in this section had to make great sacrifices over the years. It is more important than ever to support not only these businesses but ALL of our local businesses. They are ALL winners in our book. The Journal-Courier is proud to have called this community home for over 188 years. We look forward to continuing to service to Jacksonville and surrounding communities for many years to come. Thanks and congratulations again on your well deserved honors! Vicki Selby Advertising Director Journal-Courier
