FROM THE TOWN CLERK’S OFFICE: We have only licensed about half the usual number of dogs this year. Maybe you forgot? Stop by the office to register your dog as soon as possible. The new dump stickers are here. Current ones expire on Friday, June 15. If town office hours don’t work for you, the Lincoln General Store now sells them as well. Free money? Want some? The Vermont State Treasurer’s Office sent a list of people in Lincoln who have some unclaimed money waiting for them. Stop in the office to see if a little bonus money is waiting for you.
