This annual event has been on local community calendars for the last
five years and was facing the possibility of not returning due to
lack of volunteer support. Thankfully, area groups have stepped up
and the show will go on, with some changes of course.
event will consist of the usual townwide sales throughout Lincoln
only. Anyone interested in hosting a sale is encouraged to do so.
With no "map" being produced, garage sale hosts are asked to stop
in at Lincoln Printers for a complimentary pink Route 66 sign and to
call the tourism office, 217-732-8687, with addresses to be added to
the social networking for the event. Logan County Love, a local
organization, has offered to assist with sponsoring the townwide
portion of the sale. The addresses will also be on display at the
Lincoln Veterans of Foreign Wars during the weekend.
Instead of the typical booth space at Postville Park, the Lincoln
VFW has offered to take over that portion of the sale. The VFW will
provide booth space, both inside and outside, for vendors that would
like to set up. Forms for space can be picked up at the tourism
office. Besides great vendors, the VFW will offer an array of
concessions throughout the day and public restrooms.
The Humane Society of Logan County will also host a large sale at
the Logan County Fairgrounds.
Logan Lanes will be a stop where garage sale attendees can grab a
pork chop or rib-eye sandwich. Sandwiches will be served up there
from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. both days.

The weekend in and around Lincoln will definitely be full. Along
with the sales throughout Lincoln, a first-ever geocaching event,
Cache a Glimpse of Logan County, will kick off. Registration will
begin at the Palms Grill in Atlanta on Friday, May 11. The event
will continue through the weekend with lessons and drawings.
Evening entertainment will be plentiful throughout the weekend as
well. Friday, May 11, the Logan Railsplitting Association will
sponsor a barn dance at the Lincoln Park District Rec Center from 7
to 9:30 p.m. On Saturday, May 12, the Movie in the Park will once
again play the Disney "Cars" movie free for families. The film will
be shown in Postville Park at 8 p.m.
