The Burnham Trust has invited Middlebury College into Lincoln to work on a storytelling project that celebrates community. These sessions will focus on the Lincoln General Store and its role as a central gathering place and common ground. Each week will focus on one question, incorporating audio, portraits and videos to stitch together a collective community portrait of Lincoln. Anyone and everyone are welcome to participate.
• Session one — Tuesday, April 3, noon-4 p.m. What does community mean to you?
• Session two — Friday, April 6, noon-5 p.m. How does the place you live impact how you live?
• Session three — Tuesday, April 10, noon-4 p.m. Tell us a story about a time the Lincoln community came together.
• Session four — Sunday, April 22, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. What are your hopes for the future of Lincoln?
If you are unable to attend a session and would prefer to submit a written response, feel free to email [email protected]. The students conducting this project — Hannah, Shem, Evan, Mac and Mike — look forward to talking to you and hearing your thoughts.
