Many people came out to enjoy an evening of song, dance, and jokes at A Fool’s Day Cabaret, a benefit for the Lincoln City Warming Shelter on Saturday, March 31st at the Lincoln City Cultural Center. Lincoln City Warming Shelter President, Patrick Alexander, Cabaret Director, Phyllis Thompson along with a variety of amazing talent filled the evening with light hearted antics in aid of a serious cause. Guests were invited to share the spotlight by telling a joke for a chance to win prizes.  The fun and humorous evening drew attention to homelessness and the vital role of the Warming Shelter in the community.  The Lincoln City Warming Shelter offers emergency weather shelter and year-round resources to the homeless.  The fundraiser was a fun and entertaining night with a serious message and mission.


Over the past couple of years the City’s Visitor and Convention Bureau conducted extensive research and community outreach to figure out what represents Lincoln City.  The discovered revelation is that Lincoln City is the unexpected.  It is a City stretched along beautiful beaches surrounded by tucked away adventures.  The new logo conveys the unexpected with its inviting warm colors and intermingling of new and historic attributes.  It is a combination of Lincoln City’s topography, local businesses, and of course the people who live and work here.

The official logo is part of developing the overall Brand Identity for Lincoln City.  The branding efforts will continue to highlight the uniqueness of Lincoln City while maintaining a fresh consistency throughout the City.

City Manager, Ron Chandler and Senior Accountant, Scott Morgan, along with other City Staff were interrupted from their meeting when a minor car accident occurred in front of City Hall Thursday afternoon.  Mr. Chandler and Mr. Morgan saw the accident from a 3rd floor window.  They ran out to help and quickly began removing debris from the street and were joined by two young men that helped them push the vehicle off of Hwy 101 and restore the flow of traffic in no time.  The Lincoln City Police Department arrived within minutes along with the Public Works Department and helped to resolve the accident.


In wake of the recent rescue from God’s Thumb, the City of Lincoln City reminds the public to be aware of potential dangers when hiking areas in Lincoln City.  It is important to know the correct route of access and the skill level of the hike.  Make sure to let others know when and where you are hiking, and when you plan to return.  It’s also a good idea to research the hiking destination beforehand and assess your ability with the difficulty of the hike.  The best routes of access to the Knoll, with designated parking, are located on NE Sal-La-Sea Drive.   Please review the following basic safety tips:

  • Start a hike early, to be finished before dark.
  • Adhere to all posted signs.
  • Know the correct and safest route (carry maps if available) The Knoll Hike Map
  • Let others know where you are hiking and when you plan to return home.
  • Do not wait to call 911 if you need help.
  • Plan for unexpected weather changes.

For more information on trails and hiking safety please contact Lincoln City Parks and Recreation Department at 541-994-2131.
