Baldwin Briefs

July 7, 2005

Benefit concert to be

held at Vinland

A benefit potluck picnic and concert will be Saturday at 697 E. 1725 Road, north of Baldwin. The picnic will begin at 6 p.m. and the concert will begin at 8 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend one or both events.

The Presbyterian Church in Vinland will benefit from the proceeds. The wooden structure was built in 1879 in Gothic revival architectural style and is in need of repair. James Naismith, famed inventor of basketball, was pastor at the church for two years beginning in 1919. Community members joined together in 2001 to purchase the property. It was placed on the National Register of Historical Places and has received a matching grant from the Kansas Heritage Trust Fund for restoration.

Cindy Novelo and Kasey Rausch will present the concert. Both artists will perform numbers on their own as well as some together. The concert will be held indoors and seating is limited. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. The picnic will be outside and is free. Bring a covered dish, silverware and a lawn chair or blanket. Bring an instrument as there may be a jam session afterward.

For reservations or information, call Cindy at (785) 331-7123. Donations may be made to Lawrence Preservation Alliance, PO Box 1073, Lawrence, KS 66044.
