Logan County's response to CROP Walk applauded          Send a link to a friend 

[NOV. 11, 2005]  The  2005 CROP Walk on Sept. 11 came on the heels of all the destruction caused by hurricanes, yet Logan County responded to both needs most generously. CROP treasurer Rosemary Apel reported that $5,632.75 had been collected locally as of Nov. 7.

Walkers from area churches and five civic organizations plus long-time supporters answered the call to support Church World Service as it stands ready to help in times of need and disasters.

The civic organization that collected the most was the Lincoln Rotary. The church whose walkers gathered the most was First Presbyterian Church. The individual walker who secured the most money in pledges was Ruth Freeman from the First United Methodist Church.

Other participating churches were Immanuel Lutheran, Trinity Episcopal, Faith Lutheran and St. John United Church of Christ. Other civic groups that supported the cause were the Kiwanis, Lincoln Junior Woman's Club, CIEDC and Logan-Mason Rehabilitation Center.

The local CIEDC will be given 25 percent of the total collected, for projects and needs in Logan County.
