your house and compete against other Lincoln residents.
The winning first-place entrant will receive a one-year full-access
membership to the Sports Center for their immediate family. Second
place will be awarded a six-month full-access membership for their
family, and third place will be given a three-month full access for
Homes to be judged should be registered by Monday,

brief description of your theme or decorations.
This is a free contest.

The Halloween FunFest will be on
Thursday, Oct. 28. The event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
on the indoor tennis courts. This is great family-oriented
trick-or-treating. There will be plenty for all the little ghosts
and goblins to do, tons of games, prizes and yes, lots of candy too!
Costume judging will begin at 6:30 and will run throughout the
evening. Judges will be well-known local celebrities.
