Roadside invasive pulling party set for June 2 in Lincoln

LINCOLN — Food! Prizes! Exercise! Satisfaction! Please join the Lincoln Conservation Commission on Saturday, June 2, for a roadside invasive pulling party. Wild chervil and poison parsnip are two invasives that have taken up residence in Lincoln but are still limited enough in their distribution to eradicate.
 Meet at the Lincoln sports field pavilion at 9 a.m. Wear a long sleeve shirt, long pants, and closed-toed shoes. Bring a water bottle, gloves and a small shovel, if you have them. There will be ID sheets, plus live plants, so you’ll know what to pull. Lunch will be provided from 12-1 p.m. and will feature Vaneasa’s fabulous soup, cornbread and cookies. Please bring your own bowl for the soup.
Handmade mugs, Nancy Stevens’ homemade pie, creemee gift certificates, a hand-crafted wooden cutting board and a pony ride are just a few of the thank-you prizes for participants. Prize markers will be scattered among the patches of roadside exotic that participants will be pulling.
In just a few hours, we made a big impact with last year’s pulling party. Since the seeds remain viable for up to 5 years, we need to keep at it for a few more years. See you there.
The Lincoln Community School’s annual Spring Festival will be on Friday, June 8. Schedule of Events: 7:45-8:25 a.m., Readers’ Restaurant for families; 8:30-9:15 a.m., an all-school assembly featuring the famous First Grade Red Clover Play; 9:30-10:30 a.m., Garden Tours and Plant Stations, a second helping of Readers’ Restaurant, Weather and the Playground Display, Chicks and Eggs, Musical Performances, and an Interactive Mosaic. The Boat Rally will take place at 11:15 a.m. and the Festival will conclude with a cook-out at 11:30 a.m. prepared by grill masters from the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department. Lunch is $5. Email LCS at [email protected] or call 802-453-2119 to make a reservation for the cook-out.
Northern Flyer Bluegrass will be performing as part of the Burnham Music Series on Saturday, June 9, at 7:30 p.m. at Burnham Hall. $10 for adults, teens and kids are free.
A memorial service celebrating the life of Ruth Coyle will be held on Tuesday, June 12, at the United Church of Lincoln at 11 a.m. Ruth passed away on April 24. All are welcomed.
Until next time …
Learn From Yesterday. Live For Today. Hope For Tomorrow.
