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
