[April 13, 2009]  The Abraham Lincoln Tourism Bureau of Logan County will have its annual dinner Friday evening at the Maple Club in Lincoln.

There will be music, presentations, awards and a delicious buffet meal. The evening will be a celebration of tourism and the Abraham Lincoln Bicentennial, together with Logan County.

Jim Shay and his wife, Carole, will be on hand to give a PowerPoint presentation showcasing their collection of the many faces of Abraham Lincoln. Since moving to Springfield some 40 years ago, they have acquired and organized images of Abe and share their collection with others. They have rummaged through countless antique malls and shops, purchased from fellow collectors, and sat in on countless estate auctions to find pieces for their collection. This collection has been the subject of newspaper articles and been shared with others at the Springfield Art Association, Elderhostel and with numerous civic groups.
