To the editor:
On Jan. 21, 2012, a knock came to the apartment
door around 6 p.m. I opened it and there stood a lady with a smile
on her face, two meals in hand, only introducing herself as Michelle
and [saying] that someone signed our name (my son and mine) to have
these meals delivered. She also explained that she was from a new
organization here in town known as "Logan County Love."
She told me that it is a Christian, loving group that reaches out
to the community as Jesus taught (teaches) us to do. Michelle told
me that this group can be found on Facebook under Logan County Love.
I am now a part of this group. At my first meeting the following
Tuesday, I learned that free meals are served the third Saturday of
the month at St. John United Church of Christ here in town. The
cost, as I said, is free, but donations are welcome. Canned and
perishable foods will go to one of the local food pantries, and cash
donations will be used to service the next meal. Serving and
delivery times are 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.

If anyone is interested, they may phone Andrea Dykman at
309-267-2825 or Tiffany Werth at 217-737-9526.
Check us out on Facebook also at Logan County Love.
We are all about serving others. Come join us for a meal of
spaghetti, garlic bread, salad and dessert on Feb. 18 from 5 to 7
