Lincoln news for Nov. 19
LINCOLN – Do you like mysteries? The Lincoln Library book group will be doing something a little bit different this month. Instead of reading the same book, participants will choose their own mystery to read. All can share about the book that they read. Choose an author you love or explore one you haven’t read before. There will be displays in the library where you can share what you’ve read or join them for their book discussion on Monday, Nov. 30, at 6 p.m. via Zoom. The library offers a full stack of mystery books, so stop by and choose yours.
FROM THE TOWN CLERK
This year’s election turnout in Lincoln set a new record: 972 people cast their vote. If you take away the 31 inactive voters on the checklist, this is nearly a 91% turnout. AMAZING! Election results are available on the Vermont Secretary of State’s website. The last record was in 2016: With about 1,000 registered, 814 people voted.
Some of Lincoln’s land records are now available online. You won’t see Lincoln on the visual map yet, but we are in the drop-down list of towns. Lincoln began digitizing its records in August of 2011. All but our most recent surveys are also there. The link to the website is posted on the town’s website under the clerk services page or use this link i2d.uslandrecords.com/VT/ to go directly to it. If you have questions about this, please send an email to [email protected].
REMINDER: Thanksgiving break for MAUSD students will be Monday, Nov. 23, through Friday, Nov. 27.
