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
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
