Lincoln talents feed the hungry          Send a link to a friend

On Dec. 31, 2003, the books were closed on the most successful Harvest of Talents for World Hunger in its history. The 20th annual Harvest of Talents proceeds, totaling $75,534.34, have been forwarded to International Disaster Emergency Service to fund several feeding programs in various parts of the world during the coming year.

In a year with a poor economic climate, there were many who said it could not be done. Through the grace of God and the contributions of many, from this and other communities, the Harvest was able to claim a victory on behalf of the world's hungry people.


[to top of second column in this letter]

With deep humility and grateful hearts, we express our love and appreciation to each and every individual and/or business that contributed to the success of this ministry of hope.

Our 20th anniversary theme was "Building Bridges of Hope." We plan to continue building those bridges as plans are launched for the 21st annual Harvest of Talents for World Hunger to be held on October 23, 2004.


Pat Snyder, on behalf of the
Harvest of Talents for World Hunger ministry team

LAMS concert fun

Send a link to a friend

My wife and I visited our daughter in Lincoln the weekend of the 20th [of December]. She plays in the Lincoln Community Orchestra and we went to the concert on Saturday night. We want to congratulate LAMS on the professional presentation of this program. Most of all we want to commend this community for supporting this group. 

We had more fun at this concert than [at] many of the concerts we attend here at home because of the obvious fun the Lincoln participants were having. One could tell from the joy on their faces that they really loved what they were doing.

Congratulations on a great performance. You all "made" our Christmas season.

A reader wondering about
Jesse Merriman's roping mule

Send a link to a friend

Being an ex-rodeo participant, I am extremely interested in Jesse and his roping mule. How did they do at the National High School Rodeo Finals in Farmington, N.M., last July? Please give me all the information that you can on them. Especially on how they done at the finals.

Thank you.
