2017 Homecoming/Loon Festival

Lincoln's annual Homecoming celebration was

sponsored by THE LINCOLN MAINE FEDERAL CREDIT UNION!

2017 Homecoming - Day 1

July 20 - Lincoln's annual Homecoming festival is in full swing. We traveled around town today to capture some of the excitement for you. The temperature reached into the eighties, and the sun was shining brightly as Homecoming got underway. We would like to thank Lincoln Maine Federal Credit Union for sponsoring our coverage again this year. Watch for us at Homecoming events, and smile for the camera! For a photo slideshow, CLICK HERE. Also, check out our Facebook page for some live video.

2017 Homecoming - Day 2

July 21 - Lincoln's Homecoming celebration continued today. The weather was warm and the sunshine plentiful throughout the day. We covered as many events as we could, and you can see a photo slideshow if you CLICK HERE. We also streamed some videos live on Facebook!

Don't miss tomorrow's events, as Homecoming kicks into high gear. The Grand Parade begins around 11 am, and somewhere around 9:15 the fireworks will start. Check out the schedule on this page for all the other events for the day. We hope you can be here for all the fun. If you can't, check our Facebook page for live videos and here on www.WelcomeToLincolnMaine.com for photos.

2017 Homecoming - Day 3

July 33 - Today was a big day for Lincoln's Homecoming Loon Festival! The Grand Parade wound through town along Main Street and West Broadway. The Redneck Regatta tested cardboard/duct tape watercraft designed and built for the short race that has become an annual event. The regatta was crashed by a family of ducks, but no people or ducks came to any harm. There was plenty of music today, too, with several bands performing to entertain the crowds. In the top photo you can see 102-year-old Stuart Lane of Lincoln enjoying his ride in the parade as Grand Marshall. 

Many people worked hard to make this year's Homecoming a big success. We enjoyed bringing you photos and video, which will stay here all year long so you can remember the events. Our thanks to the Lincoln Maine Federal Credit Union for sponsoring our coverage!

Boston Post Cane presented to Stuart Lane

July 21, 2017 - In September, Stuart Lane of Lincoln will be 103 years old! Today at the Lincoln Historical Society museum on West Broadway, Stuart was honored with the Boston Post cane. In 1909, the Boston Post had 700 of these canes made from African ebony wood with a gold head. The Post sent the canes to selectmen in New England towns to be presented to the oldest citizen of each town. Once presented, the cane remains with the honoree until he or she passes away, when it is presented to the oldest citizen. From 1909 until 1930, the canes were presented only to the oldest male residents. In 1930, the rules were ammended to include women.

The cane and certificate were presented to Stuart by Lincoln Historical Society President Dottie Harding. Many members of Stuart's family were on hand for this special day. 

Stuart will also be the Grand Marshall of Saturday's parade.

Our congratulations to Stuart, and we hope he enjoys the cane for many years to come!
