To the editor:
I would like to take this opportunity
to thank the many groups, churches and individuals who have recently
donated to the Lincoln-Logan Food Pantry. Our shelves were very
bare, but thanks to the giving nature of the residents of the
county, they are now full.
The donations kept the pantry
volunteers very busy sorting and stocking the donations, but no one
complained. The very fact that there was food thrilled the staff.
With the holiday season approaching,
the need for food will continue, and we hope that the residents of
Logan County will not forget the need the pantry has.

Both days of the event saw large crowds of shoppers and families
enjoying the downtown scene.
As an extra treat for the weekend,
Main Street Lincoln gave free horse-drawn carriage rides through the
downtown area. Our board of directors extends a very special
thank-you to Illini Bank and Edward Jones for sponsoring the
carriages rides. It would not have been possible without their
