Lincoln news for Aug. 29
LINCOLN — School is back in session and that means anxious and excited kids running around. Allow yourself extra time for getting to school or work, don’t pass school buses when the lights are on and the stop sign is extended and be aware of students riding their bikes to school. Thank you for using a little extra care and caution as we begin this new school year.
Welcome to LCS: Annsunee Swift, principal through December, Brittney Peterson, grade 5/6 teacher, Brady Fuller, custodian and welcome back to Justin Newton, PE teacher. Wishing all LCS staff and students a wonderful school year.
There will be a meeting on Friday, Sept. 6, from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. downstairs at the church to discuss this year’s Apple Day. Bring a friend or two that you think would like to be involved. All are welcome. RSVP to Jim Brown at [email protected] so they will know how many are planning to attend.
The library presents “People and Bears: Learning to Live with Changing Populations” on Tuesday, Sept. 10, at 7 p.m. The discussion will be led by Forrest Hammond, Wildlife Biologist, Black Bear project leader and Environmental Review biologist and Jessie-Ruth Corkins, Public Outreach coordinator at the Addison County Solid Waste Management District. They will be talking about the changing nature of our bear and human populations; and how we can best get along, given our natural behaviors and activities. The talk will be giving special attention to the mandatory composting requirement of Act 148, the state’s Universal Recycling Law.
The town offices, library and MAUSD schools will be closed on Monday, Sept. 2 in observance of Labor Day.
