Lincoln news for Feb. 7
LINCOLN — Another fun Hill Country Holiday weekend is in the books as we celebrated 100 years of the Burnham Legacy. Artwork by LCS students depicting images of Burnham Hall was on display throughout the weekend. From military whist, the spaghetti supper and variety show to the pancake breakfast, there was a little something for everyone. It’s always a fun time at the HCH Variety Show. So many different talents were on display from storytelling and joke making, to funny skits and singing. I’m especially proud of all the LCS students who shared their talents with us.
Mary Apgar took home the title of best meatball in the preschool’s meatball competition and Chuck Norton’s name was chosen as the 50/50 raffle winner. Abigail Gusakov took home first place and Jo Jackson was the second place winner in the Walter S. Burnham look alike contest.
Todd announced during the show that there was such a great turnout for Military Whist that they will also be hosting the card game on Friday, Feb. 15, Friday, March 1, and Friday, March 15, at Burnham Hall. Whist is an easy, fun game for all ages. Cost is only $1 per person.
