First Baptist Church 150th anniversary kickoff 'thank you'

Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

The Sesquicentennial Committee of First Baptist Church of Lincoln would like to THANK the many wonderful and generous people of Lincoln and the surrounding areas.

We recently had a pancake and sausage breakfast to "kick off" our 150th anniversary of the church. The fundraiser was most successful because of the generous donations of many people and businesses. We would like to thank Lincoln IGA, Wilbur Paulus for the pig for our fresh sausage, Krogers, Tim Neitzel for his time and pancake cooker, Hicksgas for letting us borrow their wonderful grill to cook the sausage, the Atlanta Locker, and the many free advertisements from LincolnDailyNews.com, Channel 5, The Courier, Graue Inc., Mitchell-Newhouse Lumber Co. and Pepsi for the huge signs they gave us. People of Lincoln should definitely appreciate all the good things and especially the donations from our many businesses in Lincoln.

[to top of second column in this letter]

And last but not least, all the people who joined us for breakfast on Saturday, April 22, at First Baptist Church of Lincoln.

The committee and congregation would just like to say, "THANK YOU, EVERYONE!"

We just hope and pray that all of you will look forward and participate in the future events of our 150th anniversary celebration (1856-2006). Thank you and God bless all of you.

Donna Buse, secretary of the committee

Jim DeWitt, chairman

Members: Joyce Seelye, Victoria Baker, Sandy Taylor and Pastor Robert Henderson
