[May 15, 2014]  It just would not be summer without Tee Ball. This is a non-competitive introduction to baseball for both boys and girls. The basic skills of hitting, fielding, catching throwing, base running and safety will be stressed through drills and game situations. Emphasis is on sportsmanship, teamwork and fun! T-shirts, caps and schedules will be distributed at the first practice. All athletes must wear sneakers and have their own ball glove. In case of inclement weather, Tee Ball will be held in the Sports Center courts. The season will begin Saturday morning June 7. There will six weeks of games with no games the 4th of July weekend. This is for children 4 years old and up to second grade. Parents are urged to pre-register to insure that your child will have a t-shirt and cap.

Our Nathan Turner Memorial Fishing Clinic and Derby are just around the corner. Nathan Turner, former city councilman and resident of Lincoln, was an avid fisherman and outdoorsman. Reserve Tuesday, June 3 at 6:30 for the Clinic held here at the park district. The free clinic explores the fundamentals and safety issues of fishing. Her Drier, retired with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources will be here with displays. He will teach young and old anglers alike how to tie on a hook, casting techniques and the usage of different baits. There will be drawings for fishing poles and equipment at the end of the presentation.

The free fishing derby will be hosted at Hickory Lane Campground near Atlanta on Saturday, June 7 from 9:00 a.m. to noon. Prizes will be awarded in several different categories in this competitive but fun event. The Lincoln City Police D.A.R.E. program will sponsor the free derby. Police Chief Ken Greenslate will be on hand cooking hotdogs and providing sodas to the fishermen and their families. Parental approval is a must and parents are encouraged to attend. This program is designed for youth ages 4 to 15.
