These young people are coming to not only help
make Logan County beautiful, but to find strength in themselves and
Workcamp for Lincoln is a group of young adolescents
who will be coming to Logan County from all over the country.
Don't worry, they aren't coming to raise havoc. These kids
have actually paid for the experience to help improve the homes of
elderly, disabled and low-income members of our community.
Please rest assured that all CDC rules and
regulations will be followed to help keep them and our community
safe and healthy.
This is our first year being a part of the Group[
Mission Trip Home Repair program and we are hoping that if it goes
well, they will return each year. Workcamp crews will be in
Atlanta, Chestnut, Emden, Lincoln, Middletown and Mount Pulaski, and
could be wearing shirts with the Workcamp for Lincoln logo or Group
Mission shirts which will make them recognizable.

So, what do we need from the community? Just a
kind smile and wave as you see these crews coming in.
If you own a business, there are some additional ways
you can help:
If you have advertising signs/marquees, we ask
that you put a message for the Workcamp for Lincoln groups to
see as they come into town the weekend of July 25th. Just
a simple "Thank you Workcamp for Lincoln volunteers!"
We would love to place information cards at your
counters to educate customers about the Workcamp for Lincoln
Place our welcome signs in the window of your
business the week of July 25th.
