Lincoln news for Jun. 17

LINCOLN — On Friday, June 21, and Saturday, June 22, there will be a community play performance of “Silas Takes the Air” at Burnham Hall at 7 p.m. The play is a 1920’s comedy that was at one time performed by our own Lincoln centenarian, Hattie Brown. The cast is mostly made up of Lincoln folks, with directors Martha Chesley and Andrea Gordon, of Mt. Abe Fall Musical fame.

The seating is general admission. They won’t be selling tickets, but there will be a donation jar at the door. In the spirit of celebrating 100 years of Burnham, special front row seating in extra comfy chairs is available at $100 per seat. These special seats are limited, so contact Sally Ober at 802-349-3440 to reserve yours. Refreshments will be provided during intermission. This should be an entertaining night out that you won’t want to miss.

FROM THE TOWN: The Lincoln Select Board has announced that the first Walter S. Burnham Award for Community Service will go to Mt. Abraham High School student, Roman Mayer. Roman’s experiences in the Lincoln community and beyond have taught him the value of giving of himself and in contributing to make Lincoln a great place to live. A state champion wrestler, Roman has taken a leadership role with the Eagles Youth Wrestling Team, inspiring them to work hard and to be good sports. Walter Burnham encouraged young people of Lincoln to understand and appreciate the value of volunteerism. The award and a check for $500 will be presented to Roman before the June 22 performance of “Silas Takes the Air.” Congratulations, Roman Mayer!

The third annual X Out Xotics weed pulling event will be happening on Saturday, June 22, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., meeting at the pavilion behind the firehouse. This year’s focus will be on pulling poison parsnip. Wear long sleeves, pants and bring gloves. Lunch is courtesy of the Lincoln General Store. Prizes will be given to all participants.

Patrons can now check out tennis rackets at the Lincoln Library. A big thank you to the Addison Community Athletic Foundation, for providing the library with three adult tennis rackets, and one for children. There are also a couple different tennis balls, for learners (with less bounce) and regular tennis balls. Come check them out of the library and have fun on our town court.

REMINDER: The Children’s Craft Session at the library will be held on Wednesday, June 19, at 10:30 a.m. Crafters will be using felt, ribbon and beads to make bookmarks.

Until next time ... If You Don’t Try, You’ll Never Know. Keep Moving. Be The Reason Someone Smiles Today.
