Bring the family to downtown Mount Vernon for the annual Halloween trick or treating from 3:00 - 5:00 pm and as part of the fun, enter your kids (or yourselves) in the costume contest we are hosting at the Lincoln starting at 4:00. Our Master and Mistress of Ceremonies will cram monsters and ghouls, princesses and frogs, superheros and villians in age appropriate groups onstage and our panel of judges will pick the lucky winners.
All Lincoln Theatre Members and Volunteers in good standing are invited to attend the Annual Membership Meeting presented by the Lincoln Theatre Center Foundation at 6:00pm this evening. At this meeting you will find out about the state of the organization, including a financial review; meet the current board members and elect new candidates; and be the first to officially hear of our plans for programming and capital improvements for 2012.
Skagit PFLAG and United General present a presentation and film with speaker Dr. Jackson Katz.
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!

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.
