Happy New Year!  As we enter 2010, you will notice some changes to the format of our Lincoln guide.  Most notably, we have moved to a two-month printed schedule of events, and will begin booking our films on a week-to-week basis, as other theatres do.  While I acknowledge this is quite a change from the past, I want to tell you how this benefits the organization and you, the patron:

Artist Christine Olsen in the Art Bar

Artist reception Friday, December 4th at 5:30
Works on display during the month of December

"Christine Olsen paints because she loves to paint. She's inspired by the things around her. History, culture, colors. She works mainly in opaque watercolors, creating vibrant, colorful paintings. Christine has lived in the Skagit Valley for the past 15 years and  loves it here."

Toys for Tots Benefit

In three short years singer/songwriter LeRoy Bell has built a reputation and a national fan base that eagerly awaits the release of his first full length CD, TWO SIDES TO EVERY STORY. The sonic stratification of multiple guitars, strings, percussion and bass, provide the lushlayers and textures that allow Bells earthy, soulful voice to whisper and soar with emotion. The honesty of his voice and lyrics makes you feel as if each song is being sung directly to each listener.
