Lincoln Got’s Talent proven again

-A +A
Dear Lincolnites, To those of you who attended the second annual Lincoln's Got Talent show and those of you who sent donations, thank you! Saturday’s show was a success both in seeing and hearing the fantastic performers and to funds raised ($1,000) for the Lincoln Area Archives Museum (LAAM). The performers came in for a 9 a.m. rehearsal, a 2 p.m. matinee and the evening show at 7. That was a grant fete. A big thank you goes to Lincoln News Messenger Editor, Carol Feineman, for the paper's co-sponsoring the show and for advertising and for the staff's help throughout the planning and performance. Billy Buckman came in as emcee, accompanied by the newspaper's staff and guest, Jeff Greenberg, for their rendition of the theme song, “LAAM.” Thank you especially to The News Messenger’s Shoni Jones for all the phone calls and to her daughter, Brooke, for the prompting. Thank you to Kathy Dorsey of Wardrobe and Sue Clark for door prizes. Thank you to the combined efforts of members of Natives Sons of the Golden West, Native Daughters of the Golden West, Friends of the Library; and staff and members of LAAM. Another round of special thanks to Lincoln High School's Vice Principal Vicki Eutsey for caring, working and helping with the success of the show; to instructor Ed Cummins and student Kayla; to Scott Leaman, superintendent of Western Placer Unified School District, for his help; and to Michelle Morgana for helping with planning, contacting people, carrying messages and being a stagehand. Once again, thank you, Mike Hogan and your family for the work in setting up and taking care of the sound equipment, which puts the show together. Again, Better Together worked. Shirley Russell, volunteer director of Lincoln Area Archives Museum
