                                 The City of Lincoln is one of Northern California’s best kept secrets. Incorporated in
         Rhonda Pellin           1890, Lincoln was named after real-estate magnate Charles Lincoln Wilson and is situated
           Trustee               northeast of Sacramento near the Sierra Foothills in South Placer County. Lincoln was      named the fastest growing city in California, but still retains its small town atmosphere
       (408) 846-0204            with broad tree lined streets and a downtown plaza.

     Margaret Roberts            Downtown Lincoln has been the designated center of activity since Wilson first laid out
         Trustee                 the town. The original town map defines today’s site of Beerman Plaza as the town     square. It’s still the perfect place for community events. Some traditional events include a
     (707) 374-6451              Fourth of July parade and fireworks; Lincoln Showcase, a wine and food tasting event plus
                                 a Downtown Holiday Celebration and Tree Lighting in December. And don’t forget Feats
         Susan Zito              of Clay, Lincoln’s annual arts festival and competition, which attracts artists and art aficio-

                                          Chair in March when she accepted a position with the Contra Costa County Water Dis-
 Learning to ignore things is one of      trict as its board secretary. We wish Elaine all the best in her new position and extend
 the great paths to inner peace.          our sincere thanks for all her hard work as Program Chair; it’s not an easy job. She has
                                          promised to stay in touch. One thing Elaine did do before she left was ask Liz Aguire,
                       Robert J. Sawyer   Galt, to take her spot and Liz agreed. What a team-player and a lifesaver. Thank you Liz!

CCAC 2005 Annual Institute, April 20-22 Tenaya at Yosemite
The 32nd Annual City Clerks Association of California Annual Institute had an exceptional
educational program with over 250 attendees. It’s theme, “Discover New Possibilities”, was
excellently spearheaded by President Joann Tilton (Manteca), First Vice President Dawn
Abrahamson (Pleasanton) and their many hard-working committee members. The silent
auction and scavenger hunt raised a bundle of money for IIMC Anaheim 2006! The event was
coordinated by Osborn & Associates. What a great job they did!
