Casino Royale


In 1953, Ian Fleming introduced the world to James Bond, and 10 years later, the dashing Sean Connery brought the agent to life on screen. In honor of the timeless secret service agent, we invite you to join us at the Lumberyard Arts Center on Saturday, August 9, for a "royale" evening.

Don your best spy suit or fancy frock and feast on a bountiful buffet featuring British cuisine catered by Tanya Sieber. Among the appetizers will be Welsh rarebit, and action stations will include roast beef with Yorkshire Pudding and bubble and squeak. Be sure to save room for the English trifle dessert.


When finished, try your luck at a variety of casino games. Expanded seating and additional gaming tables will be offered in the classrooms.

If you're not in the gaming mood, get your photo taken with James Bond or Bond's girl or sit back and relax.

Tickets are available through the Lumberyard Arts Center. They are $140 per couple and $75 per individual. Order online with a credit card or PayPal by clicking the "Add to Cart" button below, or call Sherry at (785) 591-4211.

July 19 - August 9 - Julie Rice, Western "Touch" Artistry 


       Artist's Reception Saturday, July 26, 6 to 8pm.


Julie Rice works out of McLouth, Kansas.  Her remarkable paintings have won many awards at art shows across the country. Using just her fingertip, Julie "touches" pigment ink onto her board panels creating detailed paintings that are often mistaken for watercolors until viewed up close. The fingerprint texture gives the painting a completely different set of details.  Her works capture the essence of the West with themes including cowboys, cowgirls, horses and other animals, including buffalo.
