[November 12, 2010]  Step back in time and celebrate the season while enjoying theater and the music of times past as the Lincoln Community High School Music Department presents "Ye Olde Madrigal Dinner" Nov. 18, 19 and 21 at the Maple Club in Lincoln.

On the menu for the meal are orange almond salad on hearts of romaine, chicken supreme, potato puff, green beans with bacon and onion, rolls with butter, coffee, tea and wassail. Pumpkin cake with creme cheese icing will be served for dessert.
