On the evening of the last day of July, Lincoln Hall held a new kind of event. Tables adorned in candlelight dressed in swaying skirts encircled a smooth surface laid out before center stage.

Opportunities for kids to have fun continue this summer at the Foxburg Free Library. In addition to having thousands of children’s and young adult books and dozens of movies on VCR or DVD available for free borrowing, kids are invited to attend two programs designed to promote reading and eliminate summertime boredom through fun and educational activities.
All children are invited to attend either or both programs; preregistration is not required, nor does one have to be a member of the Foxburg Free Library. Visitors to the area are invited to attend. The programs are conducted on Tuesday evenings and Friday mornings.More
For many years Adam Weiss has been wowing local audiences as Master of Ceremonies at the yearly SHOWBOAT performance in Emlenton. But this year he was missing from his accustomed role due to the fact that his duties as Executive Director of Allegheny RiverStone Center for the Arts (ARCA) needed all of his attention as the 2007 Performance series was about to open.
