The Mount Vernon Downtown Association welcomes Cinda Baxter: the creator of
The 3/50 Project Saving the brick and mortars our nation is built on.
*Thanks to the Washington State Main Street Program, the MVDA is happy to host an evening with Cinda Baxter!
Ms. Baxter will conduct a one evening seminar with a Q&A session on how you can use the 3/50 project to strengthen your own business. Tickets for the seminar will be $5 and can be purchased through the MVDA, Main Street office.
The Sidewalk Sale in Downtown Mount Vernon takes place on Friday & Saturday, July 29th & 30th. Downtown businesses are “taking it to the streets” by bringing their wares out to the sidewalks for a special sale. We'll have great deals on film posters ($2 each) and VHS tapes (for collectors!). We'll also have T-shirts, mugs and memberships.
We’ll need a couple of volunteers per shift to help us. Two shifts per day; 10:00-1:00 and 1:00-4:00.
I currently work at Skagit Valley College as a coordinator for a grant funded program that provides guidance, financial support and education for lower income students. I am currently completing my AVA degree at Skagit Valley College so I have taken art classes at the college and at Western Washington University in ceramics, drawing, painting, photography and printmaking.
I have recently joined the Cascade Clay Artists and had my work as part of the Depot Show with a group in Anacortes the month for June.
As I sit at my computer gathering my thoughts to write this message, my memories are of the Guide and the many transformations it has taken in my time involved with the Lincoln. It has gone from newsprint to paper, black and white to color.
It was the best benefit we as members received. I looked for it in my mailbox. It then remained on my kitchen counter, or pinned to my bulletin board or held with magnets to my refrigerator.
If you are receiving this message you may have heard that the Lincoln plans to stop printing and mailing our guide to members after this issue. We want to assure you this decision was not made without serious consideration. The printed guide has been a part of the Lincoln for many years, and enjoyed by the membership. Eliminating the guide is one step we can take to save money, but it is devastating to all of us to lose it. We are currently exploring ways to provide a monthly calendar electronically.
What a busy time at the Lincoln! We are celebrating 85 years of entertaining Skagit County with a whole host of events, and so far the reception has been very positive. During the spring our stage has featured the likes of Coco Montoya, Taylor Hicks, and a variety of other live acts for the 85th anniversary celebration. What’s more, our anniversary campaign for the Lincoln sign, message center and more is moving along well.
The Lincoln’s 85th Anniversary Project- Celebrating the history, and ‘Lighting up the Lincoln’ for years to come!
Join the Downtown Mount Vernon Association as they present a conversation with Mayoral candidates Larry Otos, Scott McMullen, Jill Boudreau, and Dale Ragan. The event will focus on ideas and issues related to the downtown core of the city.

Twenty 1.5 mile long trains per day for decades right through Skagit County. Problems with diesel exhaust, coal dust, traffic, vessel risks, and a huge contribution to climate change—just some of the probable impacts from a proposed coal export terminal at Cherry Point, a few miles past Bellingham. If built, SSA Marine's terminal will export up to 48 million tons of Peabody coal per year, all of it shipped by train through Mount Vernon, Burlington and Skagit farmland.
