Lincoln news for Jul. 15
LINCOLN — There are a lot of fun things happening at the library this summer. Crafty Wednesdays will take place on July 21 and 28 from 2-5 p.m. Crafters will make a lino-cut stamp and/or a booklet to stamp into. This will be a lightly supervised craft session tailored to any age between 3 and 99. Please call the library at 453-2665 to schedule a session.
Don’t forget about the summer reading program. Check out a book, write a quick review of it and be entered into the drawing. They also have all 25 Golden Dome books for students to stop by and check out. Keep track of your reading with the summer reading supplies and stickers.
FROM LINCOLN SPORTS
The tennis court has been resurfaced and it looks beautiful! This was a huge project and couldn’t have happened without the help of many people and organizations. Thanks to our cleaners who spent many hours preparing the surface: Dan Ober, Kevin Micklas and Elise Brokaw. Thanks to the Vermont Community Foundation for a grant to pay for a portion of the cost and Brian McDonough for helping with the grant process. Thanks to our neighbors Betty, Rodger and Dave for allowing us to use their water and power. And thanks again to Kevin for following the whole project from inception to completion.
The net will be put up early next week when the curing process is complete. After that, please remember, the court is to be used for tennis and pickleball only. Please do not use this for any “wheeled” activities like skateboarding, bikes, etc. Sneakers only please. Thank you.
