On Nov. 6th, St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Milan was pleased to serve as a polling place for Blackhawk precincts 6 and 7. A total of 1,050 voters passed through our doors that day.

As a courtesy to them, St. Matthew provided coffee, cookies, and goodies to all voters and children during voting hours.

The good citizens of precincts 6 and 7 honored us in return by contributing $331.59 for Superstorm Sandy relief.

The money will be forward to the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Disaster Relief effort (www.lcms.org/disaster). Our thanks to the generous voters of precincts 6 and 7!

Al Nordstrom,
Taylor Ridge
