Changing of the Guard

The 2000s saw the retirement of longtime director Alphas Wicker and the appointment of new director Isaiah Williams. Lincoln Community Center also continued with the Center’s traditional Easter Egg Hunt. In 2007 ITW provided a $248,000 dollar grant to renovate the gymnasium and locker rooms. LCC employees Harold Hughes and son Jeremy Hughes continued making the long-time youth basketball programs a success. In 2010 a grant from the Troy Foundation saved the 70-year-old pool and provided new pumps and filtration systems for the dying pool facility. Senior citizens continued to utilize the facility with pickleball and water aerobics.
