Will There Be A White Christmas This Year?

LP&T holds annual Christmas party


December 2 -Every Christmas since we started the Lincoln area website, we've been privileged to be invited to what is the largest Christmas party in Lincoln- the LP&T Annual Christmas Party. This year was no exception, as once again we attended this annual event this afternoon at the local high school. It truly was a FUN time!! Of course, Santa and the Mrs were there and there was plenty of holiday fare to go around - all sweet and tasty, but I controlled myself! 
The children all met the chubby one and then enjoyed all kinds of fun and games in the gymnasium. What a grand affair the mill puts on for the kids! Oh, to be so young again!, but we enjoyed being there just as much as the kids. To see their expressions and watch the fun they were having really adds to our joy of the season. Our photographs can't come close to expressing what we saw this afternoon but we hope you like viewing them. The annual mill party has been a tradition for many many years. Originally it was held in the movie theatre on Main Street. Btw, if anyone has any photos of those parties from years ago, please contact us!
Again, a special THANK YOU to the management of Lincoln Paper & Tissue for allowing us to be a part of this wonderful event once again.

Large crowd braves cold temps to see Lincoln's Christmas parade

December 1 - It may have been 21 degrees in downtown Lincoln tonight, but that didn't stop hundreds of people from lining Main Street to watch Lincoln's annual Christmas parade. Fire engines, ponies, Scouts and floats aplenty lit up the street to the delight of all. Santa's sleigh this evening was a vintage fire truck! The crowd stayed around for some carols and the lighting of the town's official Christmas tree in Veterans Memorial Square. For a slideshow, CLICK HERE.

More than 200 have breakfast with Santa in Lincoln!

December 1 - Santa's elves were busy serving pancakes to more than 200 hungry people at the Town of Lincoln's annual Breakfast with Santa at Mattanawcook Academy. The M.A.D. E. Dancers provided entertainment, and Santa visited with the kids. The Christmas season is in full swing, with more events planned for later today. CLICK HERE for a photo slideshow.
