[January 25, 2013]
The Abraham Lincoln Statue
Committee will have their first fundraiser on 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.
