Bulletin board gets its start



Lincoln — A community bulletin board got a good start during the last week in January thanks to 10 volunteers, who donated more than 70 hours of combined labor, a grant, donated materials and some discounts.

The volunteers built the basic structure outside of Latte Da Coffeehouse and Wine Bar at 205 E. 39th St. The Lincoln Neighborhood Association had received a $1,500 grant in the fall from the Vancouver Watersheds Alliance to build the community bulletin board.

Habitat for Humanity and neighbors donated some of the materials, and Horizon, a landscape and irrigation distributor in Vancouver, and Lowe’s Home Improvement Warehouse gave the neighborhood discounts on other materials. Finishing touches, including hand-painted ceramic tiles, will be added in coming weeks.
