Lincoln Woman's Club would like to thank the
community for their help with "Operation Santa," our project to send
"sox" to our troops for Christmas 2011.
During District 17 Spring Convention
in April, the following totals were reported:
With the help of members and
community, Lincoln Woman's Club was able to contribute:
151 Christmas socks
(made by members)
500 Christmas cards
with handwritten messages
72 neck coolers made
157 Beanie babies (a
new item this year)
3 boxes of hygiene
2 boxes of snack
1 box of candy and gum
Special thanks to Dr. Morales' Dental, Zion Lutheran Girl Scout
troop, New Holland 4-H club.

These items along with money for postage were delivered to McLean
County Farm Bureau, where "sox" were filled and taken to Peoria and
mailed in October.
Once again, community generosity and concern enabled us to help
send a bit of Christmas cheer to our troops far from home. We are
working on this project for 2012 and will be asking for your help
again this September.
Lincoln Woman's Club
Mary Cooper, veterans chairman
Sue Beaver, president
