Lincoln news for Oct. 4

LINCOLN — Community Movie Night will feature “Hotel Transylvania” on Friday, Oct. 5, at 6:30 p.m., at the United Church of Lincoln. Drinks and popcorn will be served. This is a free event. All are welcome.
On Wednesday, Oct. 10, there will be a local history talk at 1 p.m. at the library. The discussion will be about a historical check writing scam that affected a number of local residents (causing bankruptcy for a few). Rowland Robinson mentions this in his book about Danvis. There are some other written references, including a tie in with Walter Burnham.
A small group of people have met a few times to discuss what, in addition to the Take It or Leave It Farm Stand, could be done to promote neighbor helping neighbor. Thus the Neighbor to Neighbor group was formed. Their next event is Lincoln Apple Day on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Burnham Hall. This is a free event. All are welcome. Children must be accompanied by an adult at all times for safety reasons.
Bring your own apples to make cider, applesauce and pie filling. If you have a cider press you would like to bring, and wish to participate — great! Each participant will be able to make cider, applesauce, and apple pie filling, so bring your own containers to take them home in. There will also be recipes available to take home with you. Each recipe will use apples as a main ingredient. Contact Jim Brown at 453-4563 if you have any questions or would like to help.
Potato Hill Park’s opening celebration will be held at LCS on Sunday, Oct. 14, from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Festivities begin with a picnic lunch — bring your own — followed by the ribbon cutting ceremony at 1:15 p.m. Come celebrate the new community park and enjoy the walking path, the climbing structures, the soccer field, the pavilion and sandbox, swings, the garden-to-be, the river and the circular seating. The rain date is Sunday, Oct. 28.
SAVE THE DATE: The 11th Annual Fill the Firehouse Food Drive will be held on Saturday, Oct. 27. The five-town area firehouses (Lincoln, Bristol, Monkton, New Haven & Starksboro) will be open from 9 a.m. to noon, accepting food and non-perishable donations to benefit the Have A Heart Food Shelf in Bristol.
