PORTLAND, Maine - On Friday, February 11, 2022 (no snow date), the Lincoln Club will hold its 136th Annual Lincoln Dinner in Portland, Maine. Due to Covid restrictions, there was no dinner in 2021. These dinners are held every year around the country in honor of our 16th President and one of the Republican Party’s great heroes, Abraham Lincoln. Many elected officials and candidates have been invited and expect to attend.

The dinner will be held at the Portland Elks Club located at 1945 Congress Street, across from the airport entrance in Portland. There will be a cocktail hour/cash bar that will begin at 6:00 PM. The buffet dinner includes a carving station with roast turkey, meatballs & ziti, baked haddock, and a vegetarian dish along with salads and side dishes that starts at 7:00 PM. Tickets are $50 per person or $95 for two. There will be a limited number of tickets at the door. Tickets are available online at:

Our Guest Minister will be Rev. Jeffrey McIlwain, M. Div. (AME Zion) of the Cumberland County Correctional System.

There will be a silent auction featuring art pieces, signed books, a custom-designed and sewn quilt, plus many other items.
