Lincoln news for Jan. 13
LINCOLN — A new knitting group will be offered at the library. During the next few weeks, there will be a beginner’s cowl or hat project and an advanced cowl for adults. For people looking to knit for children there will be a cute hat with short row technique to create small earflaps, and a discussion/presentation of magic loop knitting.
There will be a mixture of meetings, sharing via zoom, and pattern exchanges. For additional information or to sign up, please email Wendy at email@example.com.
From Save Community Schools: Please Join Lincoln’s Save Community Schools group for a virtual information meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 26, at 7 p.m. The next step in Lincoln’s withdrawal process from the Mount Abraham Unified School District (MAUSD) is a scheduled vote on Town Meeting Day, Tuesday, March 1, in our neighboring towns of New Haven, Monkton, Starksboro and Bristol. Voters in these towns will be asked to ratify Lincoln’s Aug. 24, 2021, vote overwhelmingly in favor of withdrawal (525 in favor/172 opposed).
This virtual meeting aims to give our community members a chance to better understand the why behind Lincoln’s withdrawal from MAUSD. Additionally the group will provide clarity on the effect Lincoln’s withdrawal will have on our neighboring towns and offer ample time for a Q&A.
Please use the following virtual meeting link and meeting ID: wilsondow.zoom.us/j/96287454123?from=addon and the Meeting ID is: 962 8745 4123.
