State Representative Blaine Wilhour was joined by City and County officials in touring the newly constructed Shores facility.

Representative Wilhour appreciated the opportunity to tour the plant as he is very interested in economic growth in Southern Illinois.

Shores Construction is currently building homes in the Centralia area, which Wilhour foresees will entice skilled workers to our area and help fill much needed additions to our area labor force.
