It’s the Lincoln Home’s 95th birthday on Saturday, Aug. 20 from 6 to 10:30 p.m. The event will be rain or shine, as it will be held under a large tent. Tickets are $50, and can be purchased on-line at www.lincoln-home.org/special events or by calling 563-3350. We encourage 1920s dress to add to the flavor of the evening, and to honor 1927, the year the Home was founded.
Enter the ”Speak Easy” tent - with a dance floor - for stepping out to The Boneheads. From 6 to 7:30 p.m., our Lincoln Home culinary team will offer locally sourced food stations from Lincoln County. The seafood menu includes oysters on the half shell, Maryland spiced wild shrimp cocktail, smoked salmon on locally grown cucumbers, and smoked fresh bluefish paté. Artisan Maine and Vermont cheeses, locally cured Italian meats, house spiced nuts, pickled and fermented vegetables, and fresh baguettes will be accompanied with farm fresh crudité and house made dips.
From 7to 8:30 p.m. a variety of locally made cupcakes, chocolate dipped strawberries and pineapples, and a special family baklava recipe from new Culinary Director Jamie Baribeau, will be served. Signature drinks from the Twenties, “The Bees Knees” “Mojito,” along with standard cocktails, beer and wine offered at the cash bar. Top off the night with a special champagne toast!
Lawn games, a fun photo booth, antique cars, fire pits, and a Silent Auction will add to the festivities. Get your tickets to join us for our fun outdoor events on the River, and help Raise the Roof!
