Lincoln celebrates Memorial Day

May 30 - Although many other area towns celebrated Memorial Day last Monday, Lincoln chose to honor its heroes today, on the traditional Memorial Day. Ceremonies were held at the veterans' memorials on Goding Avenue and Main Street, and a wreath was dropped in Mattanawcook Stream at the bridge on West Broadway. Veterans from WW II to the present, local Scouts and veterans' groups joined Reps. Jefferey Gifford and Beth Turner, Sen. Elizabeth Schneider, and Rod Hathaway (who is running for State Senate) in a parade which marched from Goding Avenue to Main Street. A combined band from Mattanawcook Academy and Mattanawcook Junior High School, led by MA band director Trevor Marcho, provided music for the event.

Speeches and prayers remembered those who had served and are presently serving our nation in the armed services, as well as those who have given their lives to protect us all. Small groups of people of all ages gathered along West Broadway and downtown to observe the ceremonies, some following along with the parade. The turnout for these events is always too small. We hope that next year, even more local residents will take the time to show respect for those who have given so much to us all.

Something new at Lincoln's Schoolhouse Park

Credit Union donates to Little Red Schoolhouse upkeep


May 17 - The Lincoln Maine Federal Credit Union has a special connection to Lincoln's Little Red Schoolhouse. The school, which now occupies Schoolhouse Park on West Broadway, is a well-traveled building, having been moved several times since it was built on Sweet Road in 1891. For a few years, the school was located on Mechanic Street in downtown Lincoln, and was the credit union's office.

To help maintain the schoolhouse in its restored state, LMFCU has been donating to the Lincoln Historical Society each year. Today the credit union's office manager, Betty Tolman, (at left in the photo above) presented Lincoln Historical Society President Dottie Harding with a check for $500 towards the historic schoolhouse's upkeep.
