The Lincoln Park District's 18th annual
Pride of the Prairie Folk Art and Craft Show is just around the
corner. This juried show features some of the area's finest artisans
and craftsmen. The exhibitors are chosen for the quality and design
of their work. The event features primitives, folk art, watercolors,
quilts, iron sculpture, fiber art, country collectibles, jewelry,
baskets, rag rugs, handmade soap, floral arrangements and much more.
This is an excellent source for personal and unique gifts for the
upcoming holiday season. Come down on Saturday, Nov. 24, 8 a.m.-3
The park district is planning a bus trip to the Galleria Mall in
St. Louis. Join the group on Friday, Nov. 30, as the bus leaves
the park district at 8 a.m. The plan is to be back around 8 p.m.
Registration is required and is on a first-come, first-served basis.
There is limited seating and others will be put on a waiting list.
Anyone is invited to come along, and it is not limited to Lincoln
residents. Feel free to bring snacks, a magazine or your iPod. Meals
will not be provided. Spaces are still available.
Don't be a
chicken, take the "Turkey Challenge." Instructors Jacki and Danita
invite you to join them for a pre-Thanksgiving workout. Save
Wednesday, Nov. 21, at 5:30 p.m. on your calendars. This class is
free to all Fit Zone members and $4 for nonmembers. The class will
consist of 30 minutes of interval training, 30 minutes of kickboxing
and 30 minutes of hard core abs. Jacki and Danita promise to make
this fun, as well as an effective workout. Remember, don't be a
chicken, challenge yourself. Also, all fitness classes are
canceled for Thursday, Nov. 22, and Friday, Nov. 23. Classes will
resume as normal on Saturday and Sunday. You are also invited to try
the new Hula Cardio Dance class on Sunday afternoons

Treats with Santa will be on Saturday, Dec.
1, from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at the Lincoln Park District. Meet the
real Santa who already knows if you've been bad or good. The
park district has done this for a number of years with CITV5 and
looks forward to offering this tradition of Santa that just doesn't
exist in a mall-type event. There will be a coloring contest,
Christmas games, and milk and treats, too. This will be aired on
CITV5 and on their website as well.
