Lincoln news for Jan. 17

LINCOLN ­— As part of Hill Country Holiday weekend, the Lincoln Cooperative Preschool presents their annual Spaghetti Dinner fundraiser on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 4:30-6 p.m. at Burnham Hall. Spaghetti dinner with salad and dessert, all for $8. There will be a 50/50 raffle with tickets for sale at local restaurants, direct from preschool parents and at the door. They will once again be offering the meatball contest; a blind competition putting Grandmothers’ secret family recipes against area restaurants. Cubbers Restaurant took home first prize last year. Participants bring a crock pot of meatballs and sauce and voters place their votes (cash) in the corresponding mason jar to declare a winner. Contact [email protected] or call  802-522-0979 to register.
The Hill Country Holiday Variety Show will take place on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 7-8:30 p.m. at Burnham Hall. Sing a song, recite a poem, do a dance, tell some jokes. All are welcome.
FROM LCS PRINCIPAL, TORY RILEY: LCS has been fortunate to receive grant funding from four different sources for enrichment and special programming already this year. Many thanks to these grantors: 
•  Tari Shattuck Educational Foundation, $1,250 for the upcoming K-6 study of Mongolian cultures. Much of this will support Mongolian expert Sas Carey.
•  Five Town Friends of the Arts, $750 for the upcoming 5th/6th grade Film Study.
•  Otter Creek Audubon Society, $600 for the upcoming 5th/6th grade trip on the UVM research vessel, Melosira. They will investigate a variety of environmental and career aspects of work aboard a Lake Champlain research facility.
•  Friends of LCS, $500 for the 5th/6th grade participation in the Starbase program (completed); and $550 for author/illustrator Jim Arnosky’s visit in November to all K-6 classes — amazing!
The 5/6 grade student council at LCS is hosting a food drive to benefit the Have A Heart Food Shelf in Bristol. They will be collecting food and toiletry donations until Jan. 25. Peanut butter and cereal are in high demand. Please send in your donations with an LCS student.
The library is looking at different ideas for adult programming and activities such as hosting game nights, magic loop knitting, movie nights or a ukulele group. Stop by the library or email them at [email protected] if you are interested in any of these activities or to make suggestions of your own. 
REMINDER: There is no school Monday, Jan. 21 and Tuesday, Jan. 22.
Until next time … Together We Can Make A Difference. Life Is A One Time Offer, Use It Well. Keep Smiling.
