There will be an Old-time Community Picnic Supper and Auction to benefit the Lincolnville Community Library project Sunday, July 28, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the boat club on Main Street in Lincolnville Center. Rosey Gerry will be the host and auctioneer.

Items to be auctioned include an original painting by Mary Bourke, a Sleepy Hollow rag rug, pottery by Simon Van der Ven, paddle board lessons from Thorfinn Expeditions, a reflexology session, three cubic yards of compost, a platter of sushi, a Youngtown Inn gift certificate and more.

Last October nearly 200 people gathered to help pull the former Lincolnville Center Schoolhouse across Main Street to a vacant lot where a thriving business once stood. Now crews are working to renovate the building and turn it into the new Lincolnville Community Library.

About half the funds needed to complete the project have already been raised through grants from foundations and donations from businesses and individuals. Proceeds from the July 28 picnic and auction will go toward achieving the final fundraising goal. Project organizers hope to move into the new library by this October.

The cost for the picnic is $10 for adults and $5 for children; those younger than 5 and older than 90 may eat for free. For more information, call 789-5233.
