Lincoln news for May 24
LINCOLN – The Lincoln Community School will hold its regular assembly on Friday, May 25, at 8:15 a.m., followed by a Memorial Day Observance walk to the cemetery. This is a decades-old tradition for LCS. The observance will be led by Reverend David Wood. Return time to school will be approximately 10:30 a.m. Please join us.
The town offices, library and LCS will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.
The Lincoln Library is offering a Quest Writing Workshop on Wednesday, May 30 from 3:15-4:15 p.m. This is a more serious workshop for children working with adults or older children. Inspired by Valley Quests, we will be writing some of our own, which takes a bit of concentration, some planning, and some rhyming. Please sign up at the library to learn how to write a quest. We will break into groups and then try each other’s quests.
The Gap Road is officially open for the summer, but please use caution while navigating this high elevation road. It is not unheard of to see heavy frost, hail, or even snow up in the mountains during any month of the year. The town crew has also taken down the posted signs on dirt roads, a sure sign that spring is here.
REMINDER: The Lincoln Historical Society will be accepting donations of clean, sellable items (no electronics) at the museum on Thursday, May 24 from 1-5 p.m. and Friday, May 25 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. for their sale at the town-wide yard sale. For more information please contact Eleanor Menzer at 453-2807. The town-wide yard sale is Saturday, May 26, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The Lincoln Fire Company will be selling food at the firehouse and the Library will be holding their annual plant and book sale.
