LCHS Marching Railers are having one heck of a season. These
youngsters marched for 10-12 hours each day for 14 days in August
and now that school has begun, they are on the field every morning
at 7 am for 2 hours of practice before school. They have even had
evening and Saturday practice to prepare for competition. This past
weekend our Marching Railers competed in the Mt. Zion Music
Competition and came home with 1st place percussion and 1st place
overall field presentation. They then went to Dwight on Sunday to
again compete and came home with 1st place horn line, 1st place drum
line, 1st place drum major and 2nd place overall field presentation.
Club of Lincoln updates:
Kiwanis just donated $500 to the Community Action Head Start
classrooms in Logan County to purchase new resources for the parent
center. The previous materials were old books and VHS tapes (circa
1980) that were no longer relevant. The funds will be used to
purchase updated books, DVDs and other resources to assist Head
Start parents in their journey to preparing for job searches, books
to read to their children and parent development resources. Kiwanis
looks forward to providing parents with updated resources that
reflect current issues, parenting methods, relevant job search data
and the diversity of today's families. On Wednesday night, Kiwanis
held an installation dinner at Rusty's. Tom Zurkammer was named

for Seniors at the park district
An Exercise class designed totally for the Senior
Citizen. The park district began this class earlier this year and
their only problem was they weren't offering if often enough. So
they have listened to their loyal and dedicated attendees and have
added one more day per week. Join them at 9:45 a.m. Monday,
Wednesday and Friday as Jacki Pavlik puts you through your paces. Jacki
will help you focus on increasing mobility, flexibility, balance and
muscular strength. As with their other Spin and Group Exercise
classes they are included in a Circuit or Full Access membership.
