Little Red Library

“LITTLE RED LIBRARY”…  have you seen it yet…at LINC??  It has been there for a few months but you may not have known that it is there for YOU!   Look for it near LINC’s front door (it was recently relocated from the back door; see picture below).  It still is waiting for finishing touches, but we want you to know the books are there now.  So, when you visit LINC,  take a book…or several; after reading return them for others to read.  Also  any books you may wish to donate in the Little Red Library for others to enjoy.    Continue reading “Little Red Library”

LINC featured on St. Charles Community Council’s “Building Community” Wall

SCComCncl

Saint Charles Community Council recently featured LINC at no charge on their “Building Community” wall.  They waived the fee for us because we won the Community Builders Award in June 2017!  We truly appreciate this  kindness, and are still so thrilled to have received the Community Builders Award earlier this year from the St. Charles Community Council.    

 

 

 

Lowes Heroes Are LINC’s Heroes Too!

LOWES HEROES truly are nothing short of amazing.  We think you will agree with us after you read about how they have blessed LINC and those that we serve through their generosity and expertise. 

It all began with LINC’s lead Gardener (Nichole Josh Smith) for their Seeds of Love community garden telling a friend about the need for a new fence around the garden.  That lead to Lowes Regional Manager hearing about the need, and contacting LINC’s Executive Director, Kathy Thompson.  Kathy gladly provided tours of LINC’s facilities and grounds to Lowe’s regional and local management from several stores. Shortly thereafter they notified Kathy that they had selected LINC as Lowes Heroes local nonprofit organization for the year!  What great news…we were grateful and excited about improvements they planned to LINC ‘s facilities (including several that been on our wish list for some time).   Little did we know the magnitude of what Lowe’s Heroes had in mind!  Please view the photos below to see the  astounding results.   Continue reading “Lowes Heroes Are LINC’s Heroes Too!”

Element Church Wentzville Volunteers Take on Tough Job

It is always much appreciated when someone steps forward and volunteers at LINC.  But, in the case of Element Church of Wentzville, Paul Davis showed up on a recent hot August day with an entire crew of volunteers (wearing red shirts in the photos below) and tackled a very unpopular task.  They cleaned up around LINCs fence perimeter!  (We’re talking overgrown weeds, poison oak/ivy, small trees, etc…not exactly much fun…but so needed to be done.)

Element Church volunteers not only cleaned up the overgrown fence line, but they did it cheerfully as unto the Lord.  LINC thanks you, Element Church team, each and every one for an amazing job!  There were some little helpers there too…future volunteers in process. (We love it!)  A special thanks to Paul Davis for coordinating this effort on behalf of Element Church.  Look at the pictures and all that they accomplished working together!  A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

National Night Out a Winner

Again this year LINC was privileged to host National Night Out at the LINC Community Center We had a great turnout with friends, neighbors, members from several churches and our Wentzville officials from the Fire department, Ambulance district, and  Police Officers as well as Alderman Michael Rhoades, and Mayor Nick Guccione.  And everyone loved the amazing helicopter flyby,  complete with sirens blasting.  What tremendous support from the City of Wentzville and the community! 

There was plenty of food to be enjoyed by all, including grilled BBQ hot dogs and hamburgers.   The kids  seemed to especially enjoy the cotton candy and popcorn and cold drinks after all their play in the jumping house, face painting and other fun activities.  (See the smiling faces in the pictures below.) LINC held drawings for many wonderful  prizes that had been donated for the special event.  Smiling faces everywhere when the lucky numbers were drawn, and the winners stepped forward to receive their prizes.  Thanks for all of the prize donations made by our generous churches and people in our community.   Thanks to each person and the many organizations who supported this event and helped to make it successful.  LINC could not have done this without all of you!
