On Thursday evening, May 30, from 5:30 to 7:30 pm, Buy Local Lincoln County will present an after-hours social and all are invited.
Ozone Fine Art will host the event, which will feature live entertainment from local musicians, along with local foods and local wines.

Buy Local Lincoln County is a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting businesses in Lincoln County. Until Labor Day Weekend, one-year individual and family memberships in the organization are available free of charge, from buylocallincolncounty.org. Business memberships are available for as low as $25 per year.
Business members grow sales through their membership thanks to advertising on the Buy Local website, on the organization’s regular radio program, and through numerous parties and functions like this week’s gathering at Ozone. Further, they are encouraged to offer incentives exclusively to individual, family and business members of Buy Local Lincoln County. These incentives drive business to Buy Local members, but also serve the larger purpose of “keeping the green in Lincoln County,” by discouraging Internet or out-of-county shopping in favor of finding the same products and services from high-quality providers right here at home.
Everyone is invited to Thursday night’s party, whether they are Buy Local members or are merely considering joining our growing organization.
