Credit Union Donates to Schoolhouse Upkeep Again

July 12 - This morning, Lincoln Maine Federal Credit Union President Cris Kinney and Board Member David Brillant presented a check for $500 to the Lincoln Historical Society towards upkeep of the Little Red Schoolhouse on West Broadway. The credit union donated enough money to restore the schoolhouse in 2006, and now annually gives funds to help maintain the building that was once its downtown office. LHS President Jeanette King accepted the check, and thanked the credit union for its generous contributions toward keeping the history of Lincoln alive for future generations.


The Webber's Mill School was built in 1891 on Sweet Road in Lincoln, and has traveled all over town since then. To read more about the school, CLICK HERE to visit its page in our History section.

Thanks from Girl Scouts

July 8 - On June 13 we published a story on your Lincoln area website about the X-ray waiting room at Penobscot Valley Hospital being remodeled by three girls from Girl Scout Troop 632 for their Silver Award Project. We recently received a nice thank-you note from the girls, which we're sharing here with you. 


These young ladies are a credit to their parents, their Scout leaders and to the greater Lincoln area. We commend them for their efforts to brighten up the waiting room to help patients feel better, and for their good manners!

Free Youth Wellness Nutrition Camp


Attention 10-17 year-olds:  There will be a free athletic and nutrition camp offered at the University of Maine this summer! It’s called “Strong Mind, Strong Body”.  The program will run from July 11-15, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.  This is open to any 10-17 year-old boy or girl who meets the financial requirements.  Students who qualify for free or reduced lunch at school will probably qualify for this program. Applications can be picked up in the MJHS office or at the Lincoln Rec Department. Youth from surrounding areas are encouraged to apply.  The application can be faxed or emailed if the applicant cannot come to Lincoln and pick up the forms.

Don’t wait to take advantage of this free program!  All applications need to be filled out as soon as possible.  Only the first 15 applicants are guaranteed a spot in the program.  It is suggested that applications should be in ASAP.

Here is some information from the application:  Strong Mind, Strong Body, Inc. program participants will receive at no cost: 1) an SMSB, Inc T-shirt, 2) a nutritious USDA approved breakfast and lunch, 3) transportation to campus (from at least Howland, possibly Lincoln depending on the numbers) 4) medical examination, and 5)interaction in a college environment with college students, staff and the local community.

Participating youth will practice standard sports and learn new ones!

Activities include track, football, baseball, swimming, tennis, and a variety of other physical activities.  The program provides top-quality sports equipment.  Small-group assignments provide for hands-on instruction. The University provides excellent college athletic facilities for kids to experience.  SMSB, Inc. staff and degreed professionals will bring information to youth on nutrition and personal health in a variety of areas. 

Transportation pick-up points will be announced when enrollment is complete. Don’t hesitate to participate in this amazing opportunity. There aren’t very many free camps out there, and this one sounds like a lot of fun.
