Your Opinion: Assist relocation of Quinn AME Chapel

Dear Editor:

I’ve never been inside the Quinn AME Chapel on the corner of Lafayette and Dunklin streets but I’ve often admired the tidy, welcoming little building.

I was pleased to learn a bit of its history in a recent News Tribune article about its upcoming relocation to a site a couple blocks away from its current site. A blighted corner will become beautiful and useful to the community and the students of Lincoln University.

I cannot afford a large gift, but I have sent a check to the Quinn AME Chapel Building Fund, 529 Lafayette, Jefferson City, MO 65101.

I hope you will do likewise.
