The City of Lincoln would like to thank Ace Hardware for donating the red geraniums and the Lincoln United Methodist Church Youth Mission Team for planting the geraniums and placing the mulch around the watermelon statue at the Depot. It looks great! We really appreciate their efforts to beautify our community and make a great first impression for our visitors. Stay tuned for the next steps, repainting the watermelon and the Looking for Lincoln sign!
