LINCOLNTON, N.C. - Our friend Kirk Herbertson likes to take pictures and he has been out and about Lincolnton during the past few weeks and shared some of his photos with the Lincoln Herald. Here are some of the events you might have missed.
The Lincoln County Historical Association hosted a “Thank You Reception” on April 30 at the Lincoln Country Club in honor of Jason Harpe, who after 22 plus years retired as LCHA Executive Director. The event also featured a raffle for the chance to purchase a Charlie Lisk commemorative face jug.
The Lincolnton Food, Wine & Brew Fest was held Saturday, May 4 in Downtown Lincolnton. The event is hosted by the Downtown Development Association of Lincolnton (DDA) and is held rain or shine. Some rain did dampen the spirits of some of the attendees this year but the downpour soon passed over and the festival continued. The festival features food trucks, regional craft wineries and breweries, entertainment, artists, and a farmer’s market.
The Lincoln County Coalition Against Child Abuse and Child Advocacy Center hosted their 13th annual Price is Right fundraising event Saturday, May 4 at the James W. Warren Citizens Center. Those attending paid $10 for a ticket which granted them the chance to be CALLED ON DOWN where they competed to win prize packages. This event also had a silent auction with amazing baskets, event tickets, household items and more.
Long forgotten letters from a WWI Marine Captain fighting in the trenches of France came to life in a one hour multimedia solo performance by his grandson, Hardin M. Minor on Saturday, May 18 at the Lincoln Cultural Center. “Letters From the Trenches: Dear Kit” was hosted by the Lincoln County Historical Association.
