been a while since we showcased a Humane Society animal
looking for a new home so why not today. This dog's name is Sasha.
She is 6 years old and a very sweet girl. She is a Chocolate
Lab/Husky mix. She loves to snuggle up with on a cold night. Sasha
gets along well with other dogs but prefers to be the only one
getting attention. She would make a great new friend for you to
start the New Year off. She has been spayed, up to date on shots,
and micro-chipped. If you would like to meet her, or be a foster
home for someone like her, please call the Humane Society at

year 2009 is here and the YMCA has already begun raising the
bar! Some great things in the works to help facilitate this new
motto are a new website, three seasonal brochures, higher
expectations of ourselves, plus many others.
The new site has already launched (www.lincolnymca.org)!
One seasonal brochure has already been printed and delivered (next
one in March). If you have any other suggestions on how to help
"Raise the Bar," please feel free to call the YMCA at 217-735-3915.
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.
