Lincoln news for Feb. 6

LINCOLN — Blind Date With a Book is happening at the library Friday, Feb. 7 through Friday, Feb. 14. Stop in for some Valentine’s Day fun as they’ve wrapped up a mystery collection of books. Take home a wrapped book, settle in with hot chocolate or wine in your favorite reading nook and enjoy your blind date.
The library has several pairs of Tubbs snowshoes available for patrons to checkout. Stop by the library and give it a try.
We had so much fun playing Military Whist during Hill Country Holiday that we’re playing again on Friday, Feb. 7 at 6:45 p.m. at Burnham Hall. The cost is $1 per person to play. Whist is a fun and easy card game for the whole family. Not sure how to play? Card tables are set up with four players at each table. Each table constitutes a team or “fort.” Each round consists of two players from each fort traveling to another fort and playing that fort’s remaining two players. The object is to win a majority of the 13 tricks in a hand and to score points. The suit of Hearts is always wild or “trump.” Players follow suit if possible. If they can’t follow suit, they may play any card, including trump. The highest card of the suit led wins the trick unless a trump is played, in which case the highest trump wins. The winner of each trick leads the next turn. The first team to score seven tricks, wins a flag for that round. The fort with the most flags at the end of the night wins.
Attention Box Top Collectors: bring your Box Tops to school or drop them off at the Lincoln Library as I will be turning them in at the end of the month. All the money earned from the collection of Box Tops goes toward the purchase of books for the LCS library. Thank you.
REMINDERS: Pete’s Posse will be playing at Burnham Hall on Saturday, Feb. 8, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 adults, and teens and kids are free. There will be no school for MAUSD Monday, Feb. 17, through Friday, Feb. 21, for winter break.
Until next time … Believe You Can And You’re Halfway There. Just Because You’re Path Is Different Doesn’t Mean You’re Lost. Sometimes It’s Better To React With No Reaction.
