Lincoln news for Nov. 17

LINCOLN — Do you love knitting? Are you a master knitter or have you always wanted to learn how to knit? Are you starting a project for the holiday season? The library knitting group meets Wednesday afternoons from 4 to 5:30 p.m. This is a casual group of people interested in knitting together. All levels are welcome. Come with ideas or questions.

While you’re browsing for books at the library, don’t forget to look in the display case where this month’s collection features Lisa Prescott’s cast iron bookends. 


Thank you to our volunteer election workers. Several of them offer to help out time after time, and this time we welcomed a few new helpers who did an excellent job. Our Board of Civil Authority members, and Assistant Clerk, Caroline Siegfried, are also essential to making sure our elections run smoothly. I am always grateful to spend the day in Burnham Hall, and the library bake sale was a huge hit. Thank you to all the chefs who contributed delicious baked goods and homemade soups.

Out of 1,066 active voters, 797 participated in the General Election. You can see the election results at:

The Ripton Community Coffee House welcomes Grammy-nominated Bruce Molsky to the stage at Burnham Hall on Saturday, Dec. 3 at 7:30 p.m. Molsky is best known for his fiddle work, but also plays banjo, guitar and sings. He uses his own interpretations from the Southern Appalachian songbook, transporting audiences to another time and place.

Doors open at 7 p.m. General admission tickets are $15, generous admission tickets are $20-$25 or pay what you can. Masks are recommended, but not required. The show will also be live streamed on YouTube and Facebook.

The Lincoln Conservation Commission is looking for new members. Currently, the commission’s main focus is the care and management of the town forests and invasive plant control. They meet on the first Monday of every month for one hour. Most projects don’t have a deadline, so work is done in their own time. Being a commissioner is an easy way to give back to the Lincoln community. Consider joining!  


The library will be closing at 4 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 23, and will be closed on Thursday, Nov. 24, and Friday, Nov. 25, for Thanksgiving.

Breakfast will be served from 7 to 10 a.m. at Burnham Hall on Saturday, Nov. 19 and 26. The cost is $10 for ages 11 and over, $5 for ages 5-10, and children under 5 are free. All proceeds benefit the Jerusalem Schoolhouse Preservation Fund.

Until next time … Happy Thanksgiving!
