Ed Waugh, Tim King, AJ Hapenny, Trent Wells, Miguel Perez and Alan Fitzgerald performed at the Waterfront Event Center. Both shows were a big success and we can’t wait for next year!
FIRE and ICE
The first ever FIRE and ICE party was a big hit! It took place March 9 from 5-8 pm at Prince Thomas Park for an Ice Skating Party on Mattanawcook Lake. Public Safety had a giant bonfire on the shore. Lots of ice skates were donated and now the Rec Dept has a great supply of skates for the community to borrow. More than 100 people came out to skate, it really was a great community event.
There was hot cocoa and Tim Bits from Tim Horton’s for sale. The proceeds went towards more fun activities for kids in Lincoln. Over $200 was raised! Thanks to Angela Belk and the Tims Crew!
Thank you to Dakota Downs from E.H. Downs and David Lloyd from Lincoln Public Works and Bub Hesseltine for making a such a great skating rink for our town to enjoy!
