Lincoln news for Mar. 16

LINCOLN — Join your friends and neighbors for another community potluck on Wednesday, March 22, at 5:30 p.m. at Burnham Hall. Please note the earlier start time to accommodate families with younger kids. Feel free to bring a dish to share, but it’s not required. 

The library will be hosting a special version of Kids Storytime featuring books and characters who live differently because of disabilities. Join Ila Halby and Grace Freeman on Friday, March 24 from 10:30-11:30 a.m. for this event.

On Tuesday, April 4, the library will present “Creating Pollinator Gardens for Birds, Bees and Butterflies” with Marijke Niles at 6:30 p.m. Do you love nature, and all the treasures that come with it? Marijke Niles, owner and creator of Marijke’s Perennial Gardens Plus, will share how you can be Mother Nature’s helper while bringing all the beauty of pollinators to our own gardens. We can build nature’s biodiversity back, while saving effort, money and frustration. Let’s learn how to do it together. 

Born in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, Marikje inherited the Dutch passion and tradition for gardening and nature. She is a Certified Extension Vermont Master Gardener and Vermont Master Composter. She has served on many gardening organizations and has been a part of the Flower Show for many years.


Lincoln Cooperative Preschool will be holding its third annual online auction soon and is currently seeking donations for items to auction off. This event helps reach fundraising goals and the money raised will help enhance the preschool experience for our community’s children. 

If you are a local restaurant, shop owner, artist, or craftsperson and have an item you’d like to donate to support local children and early education, please email [email protected] to coordinate pickup or drop items off at the preschool by Friday, April 14. No item is too big or too small. The preschool is a 501c3 non-profit organization and donations are tax deductible.

If you are a community member who wants to show your support, you can purchase an item to donate, and/or shop the auction and bid on donated items. The auction will go live online Friday, April 28 and run until Friday, May 12. 

REMINDERS: The last day to sign up for little league baseball and softball is Monday, March 20. Visit to register. An Evening of Music and Discussion with Rodger Hamilton will be held on Thursday, March 23 at 7:00 p.m. at the library.

Until next time … Laugh Out Loud. Follow Your Heart. Enjoy The Little Things.
