Garden Club sponsors tree photo contest
The Lincoln Garden Club is launching a tree photo contest, inspired by the upcoming launch of the Lincoln Tree Tour—a long-lasting gift of the club to the town. Contestants may submit up to four photos of trees, located anywhere in the world. Pictures don’t need to be recent as long as they were taken by the submitter.
The photos will be displayed at the Lincoln Tree Tour photo exhibit at the Pierce House on Sunday, June 4 from 5-7 p.m. during a champagne reception to celebrate the launch of the tour. Attendees will vote on their favorite shots and elect the winner, who will receive a $50 gift card from Stonegate Gardens, as well as a Lincoln Garden Club award certificate with winning ribbon.
The photos will also support the Lincoln Garden Club by embellishing its brochures, website and other promotional materials (the photographer retains the copyright) helping raising funds to support the Lincoln Tree Tour Project.

Mandeville and Richards at next LOMA event
Mark Mandeville and Raianne Richards are the featured performers at the next LOMA (Lincoln Open-Mike Acoustic) night on Thursday, April 13. The event runs from 7-10 p.m., and the duo will perform a half-hour set starting around 8:30. Their closely blended voices and wide range of accompaniment (guitar, harmonica, ukulele, clarinet, penny whistle, electric bass) have captivated audiences since 2010 as they travel in the footsteps of powerful singer/songwriters like Ian and Sylvia, Kate Wolf, and Neil Young. Click here to see a video of the title cut from their latest blum, Grain by Grain.
LOMA is a monthly event. Admission is free and refreshments are provided. Performers can sign up at the event or email Rich Eilbert at firstname.lastname@example.org for a slot. There is a sound system with mikes and instrumental pickups suitable for individuals or small groups.
