[April 28, 2016]  LINCOLN - This year the local MS walk will be held on Sunday, May 1st at Kickapoo Creek Park on the north side of Lincoln.

The MS committee has been working to plan this event for quite some time. Chairman, Dr. Ron Pierce recently learned that among the many outstanding silent auction items, will be donations from the Central Illinois Woodturners Club, a club of which he is a member.

Among the items being donated: several wine bottle stoppers, a solid cherry cutting board, refrigerator magnets from wood, wooden pens, a beautiful turned bowl, several toy tops and a gorgeous wooden pendant necklace. One member of the CIW club is also an accomplished artist and has donated a beautiful watercolor painting.

In addition to the donations from the CIW; there are many, many wonderful donations from local businesses and organizations. Examples of what will be available include hair care products, cosmetics, car care products, a socket set, and one night stays at local hotels.

The community is invited to come out to Kickapoo Park on Sunday and take a look at some of these great items. You do not have to be participating in the walk to bid on these items, and all the proceeds will be added to the annual fundraiser amount for the Logan County MS Walk.

In addition, the MS Walk committee is grateful to all those who came out to the Lincoln IGA last week for the sandwich fundraiser. The fundraiser went well as did the bake sale that ran along with it.
