PAST Council meets
P.A.S.T. council members met Tuesday, October 13, 2009 at historic
St Anne’s Church in Anna. Committee chairs made reports on recent
Lincoln and Colorfest activities, expressed gratitude for the many
volunteers and patrons who supported the projects, and made plans
for future events.
The next PAST event is Carols at Candlelight at St Anne’s on
Sunday, December 6, 2009. The community is invited to enjoy the
warm glow of candlelight, informal singing around the vintage
organ, special guests, and light refreshments.
The PAST place committee reported that the project to raise funds
to purchase the house where Lincoln stayed in 1856 is short of the
goal, but ongoing.
Following the business meeting, members took some time to see and
read the traveling Lincoln display. The educational piece was
produced by former Cobden PAST member Carla Smith Bell at the
Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield.
The exhibit has been presented to PAST and will remain in the
Union County area for display in local venues. It will remain at
St Anne’s for a limited time. St Anne’s is scheduled to open to
visitors on the 4th Saturday of October and 4th Saturday of
November from 10:00am to 2:00 pm. To arrange to use the display
for school or community exhibits, call 618-833-8745.
To rent St Anne’s for special occasions, or to visit the Lincoln
exhibit, call 618-833-9441 or 833-6989.
