BROOKLYN - The historic organization Friends of Historic New Utrecht is again sponsoring an educational program for students and others interested in the role Brooklyn has played in U.S. history. And again this year the noted Lincoln impersonator, James Getty, plays the part of the nation's 16th president.
"Mr. Lincoln's" first appearance Monday, Feb. 13, will be at New Utrecht High School where at 10 a.m. he will speak to more than 1,300 students. That night, at 7:30 p.m., the general public is invited to attend a Getty program of life in the days of Lincoln in the Parish Hall at the New Utrecht Reformed Church, 18th Ave. and 84th St. Admission is free. Parking is available in the church lot.
