HASTINGS (SNR) – A soup supper will be held Sunday, Feb. 25, at the Eagles Club in Hastings, 107 N. Denver Ave., to raise funds for South Central Nebraska Right to Life.
Chili and chicken noodle soup will be served from 4 to 6 p.m. for a free-will offering, and all are welcome.
Connie Consbruck, president of South Central Nebraska Right to Life, explained that the organization is raising funds to help pay for the $5,000-per-year, pro-life billboard presence in Hastings, as well as to support the many projects South Central Nebraska Right to Life has taken on, to be the spokesperson in the area for life.
A new billboard will be installed in February by Lake Hastings and Highway 281.
In addition to the billboards, South Central Nebraska Right to Life has a display that travels to church yards, with pink and blue flags representing each of the “1,088 babies that were aborted while you were at work today.”
Members pray outside the Planned Parenthood facility in Lincoln, for its closure and the conversion of those who perform or assist in abortions, give pro-life presentations on request, and more. They staff booths at the Adams, Clay, Nuckolls and Webster County Fairs and the Nebraska State Fair in Grand Island, and host a pro-life educational film, aired on Hastings Public Access TV, every Thursday at 10 p.m.
Consbruck, a member of St. Michael Parish in Hastings, said monthly meetings of South Central Nebraska Right to Life are open to all. They are held the third Monday of each month at 7 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church in Hastings.
