The Harvest of Talents ministry team
would like to express our thanks and appreciation to the community
for the support given the 19th annual Harvest of Talents for World
Hunger. As of Oct. 30, the total raised is $67,220.36. At a
meeting of the directors of International Disaster Emergency
Service to be held this weekend in Kempton, Ind., these funds will
be designated to be sent to various feeding programs around the
world. Some programs will provide food for orphans, some to street
children, and others to the victims of flood and drought.
This year 850 50-pound bags of
potatoes arrived from the Maynard potato farm in Clark, S.D., for
Harvest Day. Approximately 200 bags remain to be sold. They may be
purchased at Lincoln Christian Church for personal use or donated
as a Thanksgiving gift to a mission or food pantry. Potatoes may
be picked up at the church during office hours on Monday through

The Lincoln Junior Womanís Club is
making a difference in our communitiesí schools by our "Make A
Difference Day" project. Each junior club of the 103 clubs in the
GFWC organization was challenged to make a difference in our
Our project began when Angela Getchel,
president, met the author of the book for "Paddy Pillow" at the
Chicago Gift Show. I was impressed by the information within the
book and how it was well written for parents/teachers and children
to discuss their feelings and how to display their emotions
properly. The author was gracious in donating one Paddy Pillow for
our Make a Difference Day project, after an explanation was given
as to the purpose of the event.
Our club members were then given the
chance to put their money into the project as well. We were able
to then purchase two more Paddy Pillows for this project. We
purchased the two extra pillows from our local bookshop,
supporting our local business.
[to top of second column in
We decided to give these Paddy
Pillows to Chester-East Lincoln, Adams and the Lincoln
Christian Preschool, to reach the young lives of children.
This book/CD will be a wonderful teaching tool for teachers
to help educate children on acting out on our emotions and
how to effectively use the emotions that are inside each one
Hopefully we will educate
children to become better citizens in their adult lives by
teaching them how to use their emotions correctly. I felt in
this time in our society our children could benefit from
this teaching tool.
The teachers of each school
were very grateful and expressed their delight in the
book/CD and pillow. Pictures were taken with each group of
children at all of the schools.
As president of the Lincoln
Junior Womanís Club, I would like to take this opportunity
to thank the community for its continual support of our
