Lincoln News for May 19

LINCOLN — The town-wide yard sale to benefit Weathervane United Inc., will be held on Saturday, May 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. rain or shine. There will be sales at homes all over town, at the historical society, the library and the Weathervane walkway. The library will also be having their annual book and plant sale. Food will be available at the Lincoln Fire Department. The Lincoln Historical Society is looking for donations of good, clean, usable kitchenware, household items, linens, gardening items and sports equipment. They will be accepting donations at the museum on Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and on Sunday from noon to 3 p.m. Please call Eleanor at 802-453-2807 if you have any questions.

Ladies Aid Industria would like to thank all their supporters, donators, buyers and workers who helped make the Spring rummage sale a success. All proceeds will be used to help those in the area.


We have a great volunteer group that patrols some of Lincoln’s roads and removes Poison Parsnip and Wild Chervil. These two plants are highly invasive, crowding out natives and lessening biodiversity, including the pollinators that need native plants in order to survive.

Please patrol your own property for these invasive plants. If you don’t know what they look like, Google them. Wear protective clothing when you pull the plants, especially parsnip. If you are unable to remove plants on your property let me know and I’ll try to find someone who can help.

We could use more road warriors — volunteers who will cover sections of road all summer, as opposed to just one group day.

The group parsnip pulling day will be on Saturday, June 25. We’ll have a delicious lunch from the Lincoln Store and lots of camaraderie. Do take part in this effort in whatever way you can. It truly takes a village!


The Lincoln Gap Road is now open. Please be aware of bicyclists and hikers, and drive with caution.


The Lincoln Cooperative Preschool’s online auction is now live at This year all proceeds of the auction are going towards their renovation campaign. They are building a new classroom and bathroom to accommodate more students, starting in the fall of 2022. Your financial support helps nurture the next generation. Thank you!

Until next time … Today Only Happens Once, Make It Amazing. A Winner Is A Dreamer Who Never Gives Up. Either You Run The Day Or The Day Runs You.
