As an Outward Bound instructor, Will Parks has taught mountaineering and rock climbing to tough, brawny sorts. But he?s found that it?s not physical agility, but mindset, that empowers people to triumph over difficult situations. Will strives to impart that lesson via Adventure Dynamics?s courses. Though it?s exhilarating to race down the 400-foot zipline overlooking the Spokane River and skitter across a five-story balance beam, the challenges are all, ultimately, a means to an end.
While Adventure Dynamics is faith-based organization guided by Christian principles, Will Parks has welcomed a variety of groups and has watched as people learn to communicate in high-stress situations, be it while in the middle of the ropes course or while grappling with the reality of Morgan Freeman?s mortality. ?One day of work here is equal to one month in the office,? says Will, pointing to the intensity of interactions that take place and the bonds that form thereafter. ?People don?t remember what they learn by lecture or presentation. They remember what they do." His activities, he adds, are ideal for Life Groups and Church Groups.
Added Touch Framing and Gallery’s décor experts draw on a combined 26 years of experience as they skillfully frame photographs and jerseys and complement artwork with matting. Using techniques of conservation framing similar to those used by museums, they help customers preserve treasured heirlooms from generations past, such as needlepoints that show the location of grandpa’s buried gold. Staffers also enclose bulky items such as sports jerseys and American flags in wall-ready displays, offering a lifetime warranty on their custom framing craftsmanship. Visitors to the gallery can also take home artwork portraying Americana, architecture, and landscapes, helping to bring sophistication to a living room, hallway, or concrete-walled storage facility.

The Lincoln Center is a 29,000-square-foot art-deco facility housing ballrooms and meeting halls ideal for weddings, galas, awards ceremonies, and other events. The center has six varying and multifunctional rooms, ranging from 200-person ballrooms to libraries and art galleries.
For weddings, the staff can take care of floral arrangements and catering, while corporate event planners use stage lighting, audio-visual services, and Ozzy Osbourne to make quarterly profit reports more exciting. The stylish ballrooms are put to good use with events such as the Bling! in the New Year party and a beer showcase sponsored by New Belgium Brewery.
A sultry saxophone fills the hall of the refurbished movie palace, playing rich Christmas-themed melodies amid a backdrop of painted landscapes and gilded relief carvings.
