Volunteers at Zion Lutheran School prepare on Wednesday night to put up the huge tent for Saturday's Family Fun Fest. For details on the events, click here.

The tent is up, by the way, and preparations are in good order. The only thing missing is your family. So join the fun this holiday weekend at Zion Lutheran School in Lincoln. You will have a great time, and just like the tent, we will "stake" our reputation on that promise.
