Lincoln news for Sept. 13

LINCOLN — There will be an afterschool craft at the library on Wednesday, Sept. 19 from 3:15 to 4:30 p.m. Join Wendy and Jacqueline after school to make corn husk dolls or witches. Crafters will be tying cornhusks to shape, and then decorating them with accents, brooms and hats. Refreshments will be provided. Please sign up at the library.
During September and October the library will begin celebrating the autumn harvest season with a amazing display of pumpkin dolls, courtesy of Kerry Malloy. There are many kinds with all different shapes and faces.
The librarians are organizing a new alphabet inspired art display in the children’s room. Contact them if you have a piece to contribute.
Military and overseas voters should request absentee ballots for the Nov. 6 general election now. As soon as the ballots are available, they will be sent to you in sufficient time to vote and return them. Contact the town clerk’s office at 802-453-2980 or [email protected].
FROM LCS PRINCIPAL, TORY RILEY: Potato Hill Park (PHP) on the grounds of LCS is open for all to enjoy. We will be adding signs regarding parking and use. If you come to enjoy PHP, please park only in designated spots. We will have an official opening in October.
FROM THE TOWN: A road maintenance and drainage improvement project has begun on Quaker Street and is expected to last for several weeks. This phase of the project will extend from mailbox 1045 on the north to the Quaker Street intersection with Elder Hill. The extent of pavement will NOT be extended. We expect one-way traffic to be maintained throughout the project duration, but motorists should expect some delay. Your cooperation and patience will be appreciated. Thank you.
SAVE THE DATE: The Ladies Aid Industria Rummage Sale will be October 5 and 6. Here’s a little history about the organization: Records go back to 1886 revealing an active Ladies Aid of the Baptist Church. In 1895, the Industrial Society of the Methodist Church was organized. Did you know that in 1932 the Ladies Aid started the library in Burnham Hall? In 1968, the Industrial Society and Ladies Aid joined and the first rummage sale was held in July 1969.
REMINDER: National Box Tops Week is September 17-23. Please send Box Tops to school with your child. Don’t have a student at LCS, but want to help? Just drop them in the canister at the Lincoln Library. All money earned goes toward the purchase of books for the LCS library.
Until next time…Don’t Let Small Minds Convince You That You’re Dreams Are Too Big. Sometimes The Best Therapy Is A Long Drive And Music. It’s Not How We Make Mistakes But How We Correct Them That Defines Us.
