Lincoln news for Oct. 5

LINCOLN — In collaboration with the Lincoln Historical Society, the library will be hosting an afternoon of Memories of the Lincoln General Store on Monday, Oct. 23, at 1 p.m. This new exhibit in the community room features historical photos of the general store when it was a two-story building and when fire damaged the building. Share stories you’ve heard from your elders or some of your own favorite memories. Light refreshments will be served.

FROM BARB RAINVILLE, Emergency Management Coordinator 

As the summer changes to fall and leads us into winter there are several things you can do to be prepared for what’s coming. Make your appointment now to change over to winter tires. Change the batteries in your smoke detectors and your carbon monoxide detectors. If you don’t have a smoke or CO detector get one, they are inexpensive and could save a life. Get your chimney inspected/cleaned and your furnace cleaned and replace any air filters. Test your furnace to be sure it comes on and works appropriately. If you have a generator, check the fuel and oil. Test start it outside and make any repairs. Finally, review your family’s safety plan so everyone knows what to do in case of an emergency.


The next senior meal will be held on Thursday, Oct. 19, at Burnham Hall. Music begins at 11:30 a.m., and lunch will be served at noon. Cost of the meal is by donation.

Until next time … The Quieter You Become, The More You Can Hear. Love One Another. Just Smile.
