Lincoln news for Oct. 10
LINCOLN – The 5th- and 6th-grade students at LCS recently participated in a protest about climate change. Here’s what students Zavier Barnes and Wiley Hanf wrote about their experience: “When we got to school on Friday we watched a video on Greta Thunberg. We started a protest with posters at school for climate change. At first, we did a silent protest in which we walked around the school, then at recess, we went to the road and got very vocal, one guy praised us and another lady stopped and cheered us on, then at the end of the day when parents were picking kids up we did another protest.
The reason we did this because we felt like we weren’t being treated correctly and that our Earth was in a crisis and we wouldn’t get to live a full happy life.
We thought that it would remind people to think differently about what they do with their trash. We hope that kids and adults will think differently about what we do with our trash. We aren’t saying that we can’t use plastic but that we need to watch our consumption of plastic.”
Way to go, 5th- and 6th-graders! Thank you, Zavier and Wiley for contributing to the Lincoln News.
FROM JIM BROWN: Join those of the Lincoln community as they share recipes, offer cooking demonstrations, and samplings of tasty treats all involving the deliciously abundant apple. Apple Day will take place Saturday, Oct. 12, from 10 a.m.- 2 p.m. at Burnham Hall. The event is free and no registration is necessary.
This event emerges from the community farm stand project ‘Neighbor to Neighbor’ where individuals can either take fresh produce or leave fresh produce for others. Building off this, Apple Day encourages us to come face to face with our neighbors using food as a means to show kindness and share our story with others. Join us around this “community table” where you are welcomed to swap baking secrets and indulge in apple pie, fritter, cider, and more. Feel free to bring your favorite autumn recipe to share. For more information, call Jim at 453-4563.
