After a short business meeting, Sarah Thomas, assisted by Amy Hathaway, will present a program entitled “About a Book.” This particular book, “Abraham Lincoln, a Biography,” was written by Sarah’s father, Benjamin P. Thomas, and published in 1952.

Sarah will highlight the book’s journey and its connection to Old Mission. She is a resident of the Leffingwell Association in Old Mission (also known as Old Mission Resort).
