The new CARES Act expands charitable giving incentives and allows taxpayers who take the standard deduction to make up to $300 of charitable contributions to qualified charities by December 31 this year only. For those who do itemize their deductions, the new law allows for cash contributions to qualified charities such as the INLHA to be deducted up to 100 percent of your adjusted gross income for the 2020 calendar year.

Whether by Car or Computer, ZOOM to Hanna For our Fall Event

We invite you to the Fall Gathering of the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association on Saturday, October 24, in Hanna.  We have not been able to meet in person for nearly a year and I think it is important we do so. On the other hand, I know some are concerned about safety so here is the plan:

  • Meet at Rumors Restaurant at 9:00 a.m. CDT (10:00 EDT).
    Address: 12 Moore St, Hanna, IN 46340
    https://www.facebook.com/RumorsRestaurant/
  • Program being developed for 1- 1 1/2 hours in and around Hanna (history, bridges, etc.).
  • Business Meeting at Rumors upstairs from the restaurant beginning at 10:30 to 10:45 CDT.
  • Social distancing provided and masks worn by all throughout the business meeting.
  • Rumors has WiFi so we will ZOOM the business meeting portion to anyone who wishes to participate in that way, rather than attending the meeting in person. The meeting ID through ZOOM is 840-4357-5178 and the Passcode is 752048
  • Business meeting completed by no later than 12:15-12:30 followed by lunch.  I hope to place orders by 12:00 so that we can eat and leave prior to 1:00 CST.  Cost of lunch is on your own.
  • We will mail documents to everyone ahead of time to expedite the meeting. We need to hear from each of you who will attend either in person or remotely. Please call Jeff at 574-527-4227 or email the INLHA office so we can send you the meeting materials.

Lincoln Highway BuyWay Yard Sale

LH BuyWay Yard Sale – Ohio is still planning to participate in the annual LH BuyWay Yard Sale-August 13-15. Due to the COVID-19 and being cautious, the Indiana Lincoln Highway Association will NOT support any sales along the 2 routes in Indiana. If folks want to take the chance and have a sale, go for it. But please be safe and follow the CDC Guidelines. Thank you.

2020 Indiana Lincoln Highway Sign Project

One of our top projects right now is the addition of more of the LH BYWAY signs that you see across our 2 alignments. We placed our first signs about 3 years ago and some need replacing, some routing has changed, some were actually stolen, and some extras are being added to benefit the traveler. If you can, we ask you help contribute to this project. Each sign costs over $40 and each turn arrow costs nearly $15 and we need 70-80 more, so you can see it adds up quickly.

CAN YOU AFFORD TO SEND US $50 OR $100 OR MORE TO HELP SIGN THE STATE THOROUGHLY? WE WILL SEND YOU A POSTER BOARD REPLICA OF THE  24” x 24” BYWAY SIGN IF YOU SEND AT LEAST $50. THANK YOU !!
All donations are tax deductible, as the INLHA is a 501 (c) (3) organization for IRS purpose. You can use the PayPal “Donate” button on our homepage with a credit card even if you don’t have PayPal account.
