Lincoln County plans picnic to thank Army Corps of Engineers

  • Follow Latest News

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers rarely gets any love for its management of Thurmond Lake and its fluctuating water levels, but that’s about to change.

On Aug. 5, a covered dish luncheon, complete with a proclamation of honor from Lincoln County commissioners, will be held at the Lincolnton Historical Park—and everyone is invited.

“This past spring, the good Lord gave us rain and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers made unprecedented wise decisions with this blessing and our lake came up 12 feet in just a few weeks,” wrote Nelson Brooks, one of the event’s organizers, in an emailed invitation.

The Lincoln County Historical Society is making the event a covered-dish affair and will provide tables upon request. Attendees should bring their dish to the park at 11:30 a.m. and the luncheon will begin at noon. The event is free to all who bring a covered dish, and tea and lemonade will be provided.

Those wanting to bring a grill to cook are asked to contact history@nu-z.net to arrange space. For those who work and will not be able to prepare a covered dish, arrangements have been made with an event sponsor, Dixie Quick to fix dishes of assorted vegetables.
