Lincoln News for May 10

LINCOLN — A big thank you to the more than 100 volunteers who helped make Green Up Day a success. I couldn’t have done it without all of you. Also, thanks to: Dan Ober and the LVFD crew for use of the fire house, Wendy McIntosh at the Library and Vanessa Stearns at the Lincoln General Store for having green up bags on-hand, Cubbers, the Bobcat Cafe, the Lincoln General Store, Nancy Stevens and Nicole Ludwig for donating to our raffle, Sam Otey for calling out numbers and Betty Brown for use of the canning jars.
Thanks also to Sally Ober for displaying our poster, Jake Peirce for letting us in the fire house and all your help in setting up and breaking down, Melissa Mitchell and the girls for your help in tearing down, the town crew for always having the trucks ready for us, Kerry and the preschoolers for making beautiful posters, LCS for letting me send home flyers, the Lavigne family and Grey Dennison for taking care of all the returnable bottles and cans (that was a daunting task), and also to anyone that I forgot to mention (I didn’t mean to).
What a great time we had at the Burnham Trust Centennial Celebration on Saturday night as Middlebury College Environmental Studies seniors and LCS third and fourth graders presented stories, maps, photographs, songs and very funny, well-written skits about this beautiful community and the wonderful people who live in it. Everyone involved in this project did an amazing job.
