Shelves that feed hungry no longer bare       Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the many groups, churches and individuals who have recently donated to the Lincoln-Logan Food Pantry. Our shelves were very bare, but thanks to the giving nature of the residents of the county, they are now full.

The donations kept the pantry volunteers very busy sorting and stocking the donations, but no one complained. The very fact that there was food thrilled the staff.

With the holiday season approaching, the need for food will continue, and we hope that the residents of Logan County will not forget the need the pantry has.

'Home for the Holidays' weekend successful       Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

After many dreary, rainy days, this past beautiful fall weekend was a great success for Main Street Lincoln's "Home for the Holidays" shopping cerebration downtown. I would like to thank all the participating merchants and restaurants and the Main Street volunteers that coordinated the event.

Being a downtown merchant, I am often told by out-of-town visitors that they wish their hometown could again be as charming and active as Lincoln still is today. Both days of the event saw large crowds of shoppers and families enjoying the downtown scene.

As an extra treat for the weekend, Main Street Lincoln gave free horse-drawn carriage rides through the downtown area. Our board of directors extends a very special thank-you to Illini Bank and Edward Jones for sponsoring the carriages rides. It would not have been possible without their assistance.

Main Street Lincoln is always seeking additional volunteers to assist with projects and events. Please stop by our new office location at 229 S. Kickapoo to get involved and make a difference.
