The Lincoln County Republican women put on an elegant and well-attended Christmas Season fund-raising event at the Skidompha Library in Damariscotta. The four star buffet was provided by the group and included hot and cold Hors D’oeuvres, finger foods, and desserts Beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages were served as well. Hanna Winchenbach, a very talented young cellist, entertained with several solos. Later in the evening Rick Bennett serenaded the group with songs including political parodies sung to Holly Jolly Christmas, Blue Christmas, and Do You Hear What I Hear. Rick followed up with several traditional beautifully sung Christmas carols and led the group in a very enthusiastic singing of O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, and ended with a rousing rendition of God Bless America. All present agreed that the stage lost a very talented singer and entertainer when Rick entered politics and are looking forward to next year.
