good deed by another great organization
The Lincoln Jaycees, a group of hardworking young people in this
community has given a check for $250 to the Christian Child Care.
Christian Child Care Director Coleen Moore said she met her husband
Eric through the Jaycees and two other couples in the Lincoln
chapter did the same. We aren't surprised. Good people meeting other
good people is always a hit or in this case a marriage.

Congratulations to Community Action Partnership and the Kiwanis
Club of Lincoln. Their week long sponsorship of a summer day camp
was a huge success. The Kiwanis Club donated $500 to the camp which
was administered by the Community Action Partnership. A pictorial of
the campers visiting our 911 center will be in Saturday's edition.
your voice be heard
Speaking of Community Action Partnership, you still have a few
days left to fill out their transportation questionnaire. The
purpose of this survey is to help improve our community's public
transportation system by finding out what our transportation needs
are. Even if you don't need transportation at this moment, please
consider what your future needs might be if you were unable to drive
for any reason.
So often we say that no one asks for our opinion or input in a
matter. Well here's your chance to say what you think about the
future of transportation in our area. But don't delay any longer.
The feedback from the community is requested by no later then July 3rd.

Family makes six individuals feel good about contributing.
The Holy Family Catholic Church has announced their June "Lucky
Six" winners. Individuals who purchase these $30 raffle tickets are
eligible for the monthly drawing when six lucky people get their
names pulled. I will bet that's why they call it the "Lucky Six"
drawing. There are only 2200 tickets in total available so the
chance of winning beats that other raffle run by the state. To make
it even better, winner's names are thrown back in the pot and they
could win again in an upcoming month. The proceeds from the raffle
are used to promote Christian education at Holy Family Parish and
Carroll Catholic School. Tickets can be purchased at many locations
and you can call 732 4019 for more information.
This month's winners were: $1,000: Chase Collins, $500: Shirlie
Wolpert, $300: Bob Neil, $100: Donald Berg, $100: Rachel Grunder,
$100: Nancy Saul, $100.
dirty dogs in this town.
The Humane Society of Logan County is having a dog wash this
Saturday. The location is at the AutoZone parking lot at 1206
Woodlawn Road from 10:00 a.m. till 2:00 p.m. It is donations only
with nail trimming available for a fee. Even if your pooch is clean,
it might enjoy getting a cooling wash as the dog days of summer are
here. All proceeds from the wash go to fund the society's goals.
Got a good piece of news, information or something that we
can all brag about? If you do, e-mail Mike and let us tell everyone
about it. Plus you can win cash. Every submission, whether we use it
or not, will get your name in the "Close Up" grab bag. At the end of
the month we will draw a name and someone will get $25.00 just for
dropping us an e-mail. If you wish, we will be happy to donate your
winnings to the organization of your choice.
