Over the past year, 7th and 8th graders and their teacher, Samantha Mehlhorn, from the Damariscotta Montessori School have been spending time with the residents at Lincoln Home’s memory loss care community, Harbor View Cottage. Thursday, the students engaged in creating crafts to celebrate Thanksgiving. These students create a beehive of meaningful activities by spending individual time with each resident. Our residents love spending time with young people, it enriches their day, so evident in their participation, smiles and laughter. We are grateful to the Montessori School students for sharing their time and talents and contributing to the residents’ joyful and abundant living at Harbor View Cottage.
The Lincoln Home hosted a thank you party Thursday evening to say thank you to the many friends and supporters who volunteer their time, talent and resources to make the Lincoln Home the vibrant living community it is. Residents enjoyed intermingling with people from the community, delicious food, and lovely harp music by Virginia “Suki” Flanagan.
The Lincoln Home is a not for profit home, deeply rooted in the heart of this community, and grateful for the support from so many. Your gift is our future; the fundraising activities that we host support a Financial Assistance Fund for residents who have outlived their financial resources.
