Place to be for recreation

Lincoln Herald Staff

DENVER, N.C.––It’s quite the local hub for recreation and all sorts of activities.

It’s the East Lincoln Community Center. And according to Lincoln County Parks and Recreation spokeswoman Missy Calloway, the center is the place to be for multiple autumnal athletic activities.

“Have you seen all the activities we offer at the East Lincoln Community

Center?” she asked Tuesday. “From quilting to line-dancing, there’s something for everyone.”

Calloway continued that among the fall fun is pickleball for beginners.

“Are you new to pickleball or interested in learning more about it?” she asked. “Come check it out Fridays, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m., and learn all the basics and scoring of the game.”
