Get some spring cleaning and organizing done early and drop off your clean, usable items at Burnham Hall on Wednesday, May 3, from 1 to 6 p.m. Electronics, cribs and car seats will not be accepted. The sale will be held on Thursday, May 4, from 1 to 6 p.m.; Friday, May 5, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.; and Saturday, May 6, from 8 to 10:30 a.m., when you can fill up as many bags as you want for a monetary donation.

Green Up Day is Saturday, May 6, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. You can pick up bags ahead of time, starting on Saturday, April 22, at the general store, library, and town office. The Lincoln Conservation Commission will have a table at the firehouse from 8 a.m. to noon where you can grab some refreshments, bags, gloves and try your luck at the raffle table. 

After roadside cleanup, please bring your bags to the firehouse, where a dumpster will be available from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. The dumpster is for green bags of trash only. Household trash will not be accepted. Tires must have come from roadside cleanup.

For every bag of trash you drop off, you’ll get one raffle ticket. Prizes include gift cards to local businesses such as the Bobcat Cafe, Recycled Reading, Simon Says and many more. The raffle drawing will be held promptly at noon. 

If you are doing your roadside cleanup early, please do not leave your bags on the side of the road as there is no pickup service. Please bring your bags to the firehouse during the allotted time.

The Ripton Community Coffee House concludes its time in Lincoln Saturday, May 6, for a 28th Anniversary Concert with Brett Hughes and That Bluegrass Band. Bluegrass, honky tonk, Americana, band originals and more with Brett Hughes, Matt Flinner, Caleb Elder and Pat Melvin.
