[September 27, 2013]  The city of Lincoln will host a Community Night at Postville Park next week. The event will be on Thursday evening, 5:30-7:30, at the park in the 1300 block of Fifth Street, across from 5th St Food Mart.

At 5:30, Lincoln Police Department D.A.R.E. will begin grilling free hot dogs and serving them with chips and soda. The city clerk's office will provide sweet treats for everyone.

Members of the community will be able to check out a city police squad car, city fire truck and a city dump truck as well as other city vehicles for everyone to see inside and out. The Lincoln Fire Department will also have a fire hose open for those who want to knock out the flames in the windows of the "Squirt House".

The newly painted old Chautauqua house and polling place will be open for the evening for those curious about what's inside.

The From the Ground Up group will be on-site to launch this year’s Plant the Town Red project by planting red tulips donated by city council members David Wilmert and Kathy Horn of Ward 2 and Chuck Conzo, city treasurer. Red tulips will also be available for purchase at 100 bulbs for $15 to those wanting to help "plant the town red" this fall.
