MA sports trophies find new home
July 17 - Thanks to the efforts of several area sports history enthusiasts, many of the trophies that had been removed from the display cases at Mattanawcook Academy in 2012 have now found a new home.
Last winter, our sports photographer (and Lincoln Historical Society member), Lee Rand, noticed that many of the sports trophies and awards were no longer on display in the lobby at the high school. After discussing this with Principal Hentry Pietras, Lee contacted Dottie Harding of the LHS, and they, along with George King, went up to the high school to see the items that were put in storage. Mr. Pietras was very cooperative and supported the efforts of the LHS in finding a place that the items could be displayed to the public.
The LHS had just built a new building in School House Park on West Broadway called the School Room, and it was decided that the trophies and plaques, etc., could be displayed there. They are now on display (some pictured here) and we encourage all you history buffs, especially sports history buffs), to visit the School Room.
And while you're at it, take advantage of the opportunity to visit Lincoln's Little Red Schoolhouse, also located in the park, and the museum across the street from the park on West Broadway.
For those of you willing to share some of your time and expertise to help keep Lincoln's history alive, contact President Dottie Harding on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/groups/73797767153/?fref=ts. Volunteers are much needed right now!
