Dear Editor:

Main Street Lincoln held its annual dinner, "Celebrating Community," on March 20 at Lincoln College. Gratitude goes to Mike Fak, master of ceremonies for the event, who welcomed 75 people from eight different Logan County communities, with each having a story to tell about their community. Towns represented were Atlanta, Chestnut, Elkhart, Emden, Lincoln, New Holland, Middletown and Mount Pulaski.

A number of individuals and businesses contributed to the evening, including Buff's Family Restaurant in Mount Pulaski, Curry's Wieners, Palms Grill in Atlanta, Guzzardo's Italian Villa, Sam Sorrento's Ristorante, Paul and Jackie Campbell, Don and Mary Lanterman, Joe and Sudie Mintjal, and Gene Rohlfs.
