The Lincoln Group of DC is going back to live, in-person events with our June 14th dinner meeting at Maggiano’s. It’s been a long time since we’ve been able to do it, and members have been clamoring to see their friends and other Lincolnites. Now is the time. And to welcome everyone back, we’ll be giving away free stuff (more details below).
We will meet at our usual restaurant, Maggiano’s Little Italy in Washington, DC. The Friendship Heights Metro is right across the street and there is plenty of parking in the garage next door.
RSVP for June 14, 2022 Happy hour starts at 6 pm ET, followed by dinner and our fabulous guest speaker, David Wiegers, a talented photographer who has traveled the world finding many variations and stages of Lincoln’s life depicted in statues in the most unexpected places. Wiegers has also collaborated with Scott Schroeder to create a searchable Google Map cataloguing these statues worldwide. Maggiano’s has even expanded their menu for us. We’ll see some of our old favorites, plus some new items. Be sure to save room for the fantastic new dessert!
To sweeten the deal, we’ll be giving away some freebies!
Every paid attendee will get a free Lincoln book. Which one? It’s a surprise. Everyone will get a different book on arrival, but they will be wrapped to preserve the secret until you open it. Once you get settled in, open your package to reveal the title. Covet your neighbor’s book? Feel free to do like the Lincolns and barter and trade with your neighbors. That isn’t all – one special book will be designated, and the person who ends up with that book will get another free gift.
Want more? You got it.
We will also have a book table set up displaying dozens of the large collection of donated books in the Lincoln Group’s archive. We want to get those books to the people who are most likely to read them – our members. See a book (or three) you like? Take it home in exchange for a donation to the Lincoln Group. You can choose your books, and choose your donations. Give us what you think it’s worth. Take what you want; donate what you want!
We’ll have other special giveaways to welcome you back to in-person meetings again. Don’t miss it!
Live far away? We have you covered (or at least we’ll try to). The last two years have shown us how many members we have spread around the country. To accommodate you, we’ll do our best to make this a hybrid event with a Zoom connection. More details on that coming soon.
Of course, if you want a free book(s), you have to come in person.
Please RSVP now and plan to join us. Please pay in advance to make life easier for everyone at the door. Follow the payment instructions on the website.
See you June 14th at Maggianos!
