Event and Open House–Goose Creek Friends Meeting: Commemorating the Peace Community in the Midst of the Civil War

November 20, 2014 by Blue Ridge Leader News, Our Towns Comments Off on Event and Open House–Goose Creek Friends Meeting: Commemorating the Peace Community in the Midst of the Civil War
Goose Creek

The public is invited to an Open House at Goose Creek Meeting in Lincoln, to help dedicate a commemorative sign installed on the Meeting’s property. The Goose Creek Friends (Quakers) worked with the Virginia Civil War Trails, Sesquicentennial Committee, Mosby Heritage Area Association, and Visit Loudoun to design a sign which tells visitors about the Burning Raid that took place around Lincoln in early December 1864. It will also describe Goose Creek’s Quaker peace testimony at the time of the Burning Raid and now.

Activities on the 6th will open with First Day School students presenting a depiction of the Meeting’s history, originally presented by Asa Moore Janney in 1951. This will be followed by the dedication, in which all the people who helped with the sign will be introduced. The Meeting House will be open for simple refreshments and to hear more about the history of our present Meeting House, built in 1818. Our historic 1816 school house, Oakdale School, will be open also. … Continue Reading

Lincoln Elementary on the Chopping Block Again?

Lincoln Elementary School  sign

By Andrea Gaines

The possible closing of Lincoln Elementary – one of the Loudoun County’s smallest and oldest schools – was one of the hottest topics at this week’s Loudoun County’s School Board discussions. The school serves 136 students and is approximately 86 years old.

The discussion took place in the context of the board’s Capital Assessment Preservation Program, which outlines the school district’s maintenance priorities for the next five years. The program calls for $310,000 worth of upgrades and improvements to the Lincoln Elementary building, including a new fire alarm system ($70,000), a new electrical system ($200,000) and the replacement of seven rooftop HVAC units ($40,000). Most of the improvements are needed to satisfy county safety and electrical codes.

The issue of closing of many of the county’s smallest schools – also some of the county’s oldest schools ¬– has surfaced regularly over the last several years. In each case, community opposition to the closings won the day. … Continue Reading

Citizens Speak Out Against Closing Small Western Schools and Bus Driver Benefits Cuts

The Loudoun County School Board room was packed with Loudoun County Public School (LCPS) employees and residents who spoke during the public comments on January 31, 2011. Many of the more than eighty citizens and employees who signed up to speak were concerned with the proposed budget cuts that would, among other things, affect part-time employees. Still others were concerned about the possibility that budget cuts would force the closing of western Loudoun County’s four small public schools – in Aldie, Middleburg, Hillsboro and Lincoln. … Continue Reading

Just Like Nothing (Else) on Earth – January

January 5, 2012 by Tim Jon Columns, Just Like Nothing (Else) on Earth Comments Off on Just Like Nothing (Else) on Earth – January
lincoln donkey grey

The bucolic, little community of Lincoln – just south of Purcellville – contains all kinds of visual (and otherwise sensory) appeal, whether to the casual visitor or its longtime residents: unique, historic homes, meeting places and commercial structures, quiet, tree-covered lanes, the stately hush of still churchyards, even its diminutive size lends a kind of ‘cute’ quality to the whole picture. Yep, Lincoln’s a special place where you just feel good to merely ‘be’ for a spell.

But, for me – and me alone, I imagine – there is one star attraction. Probably not at the top of everybody else’s list – or anyone else’s, for that matter – which pops up when I think of little old Lincoln. … Continue Reading

Lincoln by Anne Tiffany

Lincoln’s Fourth of July parade, picnic, and festivities were a huge success. There were 27 entries in the parade, and almost as many in the two dessert contests, for the adults as well as the kids. We consumed 140 grilled hot dogs and made short order of the Bar-B-Q beef. The kids enjoyed games, many of which included buckets and balloons of water. 2011 is an odd year so The Pink Flamingos once again brought up the rear of our parade. After several patriotic readings, we were treated, for the third year in a row, to the lively music of the Acoustic Burgoo. Many flags lined our street, and our little village looked proud and quite festive in red, white, and blue.

The Lincoln Community League wishes to thank to all of you who had anything to do with our patriotic celebration – whether you came and were part of the enthusiastic audience, or you helped coordinate the entire celebration. It was such fun because so many of us took part in the day. … Continue Reading

HAMILTON – By Terry Moon

East and West Colonial Highway is experiencing milling and paving at night from 8:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m. through July 8. Hopefully, the sounds of diesel engines and beeping of truck as they reverse won’t cause too much lost of sleep. We can always be grateful that the paving will provide a quieter street surface when completed. Maybe VDOT will surprise us and finish early.

The Pavilion at the Hamilton Community Park maybe reserved through the town office. It is strictly first come, first serve. The date will be posted on the sign at the entrance to the park. Please plan ahead to ensure it is available when you wish to use it.

It’s wonderful to see folks out walking their dogs around town. Please remember it is your responsibility to pick up your dog’s fecal material. This is unpleasant to step in and a public health hazard. … Continue Reading

By Anne Tiffany

About 60 folks gathered in the Goose Creek Meeting House on Sunday afternoon, March 20 to hear Appalachian story telling and music by Mike Hayslett and his son, “Banjo Boy” Corbin. The event was put together by the Lincoln Community League. Mike told us stories that were significant of the times, starting from the Revolutionary War period to the 1930’s; while his son, 17 year old Corbin, entertained us with music, also representing those span of years.
Mike would accompany him on bones, jaw harp and jug. Mike’s stories drew many laughs from the audience, but all of us were held in awe as Corbin shared with us the progress of the banjo, tunes, and songs that were indicative of the different periods of history. (He also played the mandolin and guitar) I later asked Corbin how long he’s been playing, and he said that he took lessons for about a month when he was ten years old, but then his teacher moved. Corbin is basically self taught; he has already cut two CD’s, has won numerous awards for his competitive banjo skills, and has been on NPR radio. … Continue Reading
