Lincoln news for Dec. 27

LINCOLN — The first Community Movie Night of 2019 features one of my all-time favorite movies, “The Goonies.” In order to save their homes from foreclosure, a group of misfit friends set out on a quest to find a pirate’s ancient treasure. “The Goonies” will be shown on Friday, Jan. 4, at 6:30 p.m. at the church. Popcorn and drinks provided. All are welcome.
The library is beginning the year with a tribute to Burnham Hall, which will be celebrating its Centennial, having been built in 1919. The library owes much to Burnham. It first moved to Burnham Hall when the Good Templars and Ladies Aid Hall burned in January of 1924. Members moved books to the house across the street (owned at that time by Hannah Morgan) for a short time, and then moved them to the lower room at Burnham Hall. The library was housed in Burnham Hall for 74 years.
There will be an informational exhibit in the community room in early January. On Wednesday, Jan. 9, there will be a nostalgic session from 1-2 p.m. at the library — remembering events that took place at Burnham Hall over the years.
Believe it or not, Town Meeting is just around the corner. Local town officials are already busy finalizing budget details and preparing to publish our annual Town Report. If you have been thinking about getting involved in local government, now is the time to take action. You will need to submit a petition to get your name on the ballot. Blank petitions are available on the town website at lincolnvermont.org.
If you think that one of your Lincoln neighbors would be a good candidate, make it your New Year’s resolution to encourage him or her to run for office. Many of us serving in town government were approached by others, asking us to give it a try. Contact Town Clerk, Sally Ober at 453-2980 or by email at [email protected] if you have any questions about the election process.
Phil Henry Acoustic Trio performs as part of the Burnham Music Series on Saturday, Jan. 12, from 7:30-9:15 p.m. at Burnham Hall.
Until next time … A New Year Is On The Way And The Possibilities Are Endless. You Are Never Too Old To Set Another Goal Or To Dream A New Dream. Happy New Year!
