The Harvest of Talents for World Hunger
on Saturday (Oct. 25) was blessed with a wonderful and fruitful 20th
Harvest. We know this would not be possible without a great deal of
support from our friends and neighbors in this community. We are
grateful and thankful for every bit of help and encouragement which
permitted us to raise over $69,000 for world hunger.
Thanks to LDN for the space you
provided for us to share the Harvest of Talents story.
Fifty-pound bags of South Dakota
potatoes (red or white) remain available at the church office for
$10 per bag. Potatoes may be purchased for personal use or donated
to a mission. There are also a few very nice sweat shirts available,

Orchids for Bill and Diane Detmers.
These folks work tirelessly for your local historical society and
don't desire any recognition for the hard work and long hours that
they dedicate to preserving history for future generations.
I would personally like to thank them
for helping me research my family tree. Thanks, Bill and Diane!
To the editor:
I would like to thank Bill Detmers for
all his help in researching my family.
I lived in Lincoln for many years and
now live in Florida. Even though I don't live there anymore, I still
know a lot of people in Lincoln and Logan County.
Bill doesn't get paid for his help and
gets very little thanks. Come on, Logan County -- let's give him one
of our thanks. Bill and Diane will help anyone, and we really need
to thank them for all their help. I'll start with this letter. Now,
letís hear from a lot more people.
