Here’s a city that just keeps getting better!
In 2006 Lincoln was named “All America City” by the National Civic League prestigious All America City Award, an honor bestowed by the National Civic League recognizing communities of all size that have made major progress in meeting their most important needs. The All-America City Award encourages and recognizes civic excellence, honoring communities in which citizens, government, business and nonprofit organizations demonstrate successful resolution of critical community issues. Since 1949, more than 4,000 communities have competed and nearly 500 have been designated All-America Cities. NOTE: The All-America City Award application is purposely arduous to ensure only the a small percentage (roughly 5%) of those that begin the application process decide in the end that they have substance to meet the AAC criteria and have the drive to be named an All-America City.
Annual Chamber and Community events include a July 4th parade and fireworks, a downtown Farmer’s Market, Tour de Lincoln, Holiday Parade & Tree Lighting and more!
As we continue to grow, things are always changing. Be sure to check this site as well as the City of Lincoln web site for the latest additions and updates to the city’s Community Calendar and the Chamber Calendar.
