Making the season bright

Staff from The Lincoln Journal traveled around the county seat, Saturday night, judging the Town of Hamlin’s decorating contest. There was plenty to choose from, and the winners are revealed in today’s issue of The Lincoln Journal. 

We commend the town’s elected officials for funding the decorating competition. Citizens really have made an effort, this year, to tidy their yards and homes and erect all manner of lights, inflatables, and more. The prize money was sponsored by the Town of Hamlin and the winners should be able to pick up their checks this week.

Small endeavors such as these yield great results. The town looks better. There’s a welcoming glow for college students, service people, and others returning home for the Holidays. It is refreshing to see homeowners and residents taking pride in their community.

We are already looking forward to the 2019 contest. The town hall has indicated that businesses will be invited to take part next year, with a separate category for stores and other corporate entities. 

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to wish all our readers the very best for the Christmas season, and every success and happiness in 2019. We cannot do what we do without your continued support. We look forward to bringing you Lincoln County’s story throughout 2019.
