For years, the silo on Steve Schimelfenig's farm towered precariously over his barn. It had to come down.
The change was piling up for the ELCA Malaria Campaign. Schimelfenig looked from the metal cans to the metal bands encircling his silo and decided the two belonged together.
Family and parishioners joined him in May when he pulled the silo to the ground. The bands were brought to the scrap metal dealer.
He asked the clerk to make the check out to the church for the campaign.
