    Join us at The Lincoln Home in Newcastle on Saturday, Aug. 17 at 4 p.m. for the fourth annual Lobster and More event.
    The evening’s festivities feature Maine bluegrass band, Sandy River Ramblers, known for their gorgeous three part harmonies and lively music for dancing. Stan Keach, Dana Reynolds and Julie Davenport are the lead vocalists; Bud Godsoe plays the banjo and Dan Simons the mandolin. The group has just released their second CD of original songs about Maine. Band leader and song writer, Stan Keach was recently inducted into the Maine Country Music Hall of Fame.
    Dine on delicious Maine lobsters, mouth-watering barbecue chicken, and Maine blueberry desserts overlooking the Damariscotta River next to the Lincoln Home.  Peruse the “Art Under the Tent” while enjoying fresh oysters from the Damariscotta River, delicious hors d’oeurves, a locally brewed beer or glass of wine.  Twenty talented Maine artists will exhibit work in a variety of mediums for sale in the Art Tent.  Vote for your favorite artist in the “People’s Choice Awards” and three cash awards will be given to the artists you choose. A portion of the art sold, along with all ticket sales, will help support the Financial Assistance Fund at The Lincoln Home for residents who have outlived their financial resources.
    Advance tickets are suggested, at $45 per person for lobster or chicken, $50 per person for both lobster and chicken, and children age 9 and under are free. Call to reserve your tickets at 563-3350.
    The Lincoln Home is grateful to many community sponsors who, through generous donations, in kind donations and a number of volunteers’ hours make the evening possible. Come out and join us for a lively evening of fun, fine food, lively music and professional artwork all in a beautiful setting, at 22 River Road.
