[February 01, 2013]  The Abraham Lincoln Statue Committee will have their first fundraiser on Tuesday, Feb. 5, from 5 to 8 p.m. at Culver's in Lincoln. The committee will serve Mary Todd Lincoln's delicious cake, and Culver's will serve the special yogurt of the day: old-fashioned vanilla yogurt.

The proposed Abraham Lincoln bronze statue will commemorate the speech he made on Oct. 16, 1858, on the courthouse lawn in Lincoln.

Informational brochures will be available at the fundraiser at Culver's, and the committee will be dressed in period costumes.

If you are unable to visit Culver's that evening and would like to make a donation, make your check payable to LCGHS, mark your check for "A. Lincoln Statue," and mail to LCGHS at 114 N. Chicago St., Lincoln, IL 62656

The Logan County Genealogical & Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, and donations are tax-deductible.
