Life is not easy, and least of all is it easy for either the man or the nation that aspires to great deeds. It is always better to be an original than an imitation. ~ Theodore Roosevelt- Forum, April 1894 217-361-1357 Sofa & Love Sets From $499 5Pc Bedroom Sets From $299 Sealy Mattress Sets From $199 The Third Grade Class has been study- ing Abraham Lincoln and find it very interesting that he walked and worked in our area. The children read a story about a little girl who wrote a letter to the news- paper and made an impact on her com- munity by asking everyone to donate a dollar for the zoo. The children expressed an interest in trying something like this, so they have decided to try to help raise money for the Courthouse. The children composed a letter for the newspaper, made signs to hang around town, and designed donation buckets. They voted on the slogan "Courthouse Cash". It is important for the children to see that they can make a difference in the community at an early age. They are very excited about this project! Be watching for the signs and buckets! The teachers supervising this project are Mrs. Jo/zes and Mrs. Radtke. Dear Citizens, The Third .Grade Class of Mt. Pulaski Grade School is trying to make a differ- ence. We are trying to help save the Mt. Pulaski Courthouse where Abraham Lincoln once worked as a lawyer. New windows are needed, doors need to be replaced, and the stairs need to be fixed. The inside needs to be painted. If the building is not repaired, the building will fall apart. Then history will be lost! We want Abraham Lincoln's life to be remem- bered in Mt. Pulaski. We want to be able to show our children this building when we are adults. Could you help us with this project by giving a dollar (or more) to this cause? Could you give up a soda for one day and give us the dollar. If everyone gives one dollar, it would add up, and you too could help save history! We are children, but we feel we can make a difference in our community. Our slogan is: Courthouse Cash! So if you see this around town, you will know it is the work of our class. Please help us make difference. Look for our buckets around town. You can mail yogr donation to: Third Grade Class Mt. Pulaski Grfide School 119 N. Garden Mt.
