Lincoln news for Nov. 7
LINCOLN — The Burnham Hall Music Series presents the VT Bluegrass Pioneers on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 7:30 p.m., at Burnham Hall. The VT Bluegrass Pioneers is an exciting new band that unites the talents of three of Vermont’s veteran and best-known bluegrass musicians: brothers “Banjo” Dan and Willy Lindner, co-founders of the prolific and well-traveled Banjo Dan & the Midnite Plowboys, and Danny Coane, with the Starline Rhythm Boys. Peter Riley joins them on bass as special guest for this show. Admission is $10 for adults, teens and kids are free. Refreshments will be served.
Join LCS students and staff on Friday, Nov. 15, at noon for their community Thanksgiving meal. The menu includes roast turkey with gravy and stuffing, mashed potatoes, butternut squash, cranberry sauce, peas, dinner rolls and pumpkin pie for dessert. The cost is $5 for adults and $2.70 for children. Call Deirdre at 453-2119 or email [email protected] to make a reservation.
The Lincoln Community School Mentor Program is seeking mentors. We’re looking for Lincoln community members to be matched with students at LCS. Commitment is one hour a week or two hours every two weeks, either in school, outside of school or both. Very worthwhile and a great way to get to know your local elementary school and other community members. Applicants must pass a background check, which includes fingerprinting. Contact Lincoln Mentor coordinator, Beth Nelson at [email protected] if you’re interested or would like more information about this program.
