Pretty sure it doesn’t get any better than Lincoln Center during the holiday season! After years of avoiding Santa, this was the year (2019) that my oldest daughter, Gracie decided she was actually going to sit on Santa’s lap for a visit. Her proud pose and smile were the best! Now we just have to wait for my youngest, Elle, to decide she is ready to visit Santa!
Taking my son to come visit Santa. So fun watching him light up as he drove by! We love the holidays in LC!
My favorite Lincoln Center memory is playing music there since I was thirteen. Lincoln Center is my favorite place to perform because it feels like home. I have grown up with Lincoln Center and I could not be more grateful that I have had the chance to share my music with the Lincoln Center community over the years.
Going to Lincoln Center during the holidays has been a tradition in my family since the day I was born. It’s so fun bringing my son and creating these traditions and memories with him. ❤️
So many great memories at Lincoln Center: from the annual Presentation uniform pickups with my Mom as a kid, to buying my first (and only) pair of Birkenstocks as a high schooler, to happy hours that lasted several hours, and now taking my own kids back-to-school shopping at Lincoln Center. I’ve come full circle. Can’t wait to create more memories at Lincoln Center.
I have so many amazing memories at Lincoln Center but Mother’s Day 2017 was one of my favorites. My family took me to Market Tavern for brunch then shopping in the center. There is no better place in Stockton to shop and dine!
Even our dog Holly gets in the spirit at Lincoln Center at Christmas time!
My mom owned The Brush Off back in the early 1980’s( it was located in the same spot that Midgley’s is now). She taught art lessons as well as sold art supplies. I have wonderful memories of that time. The Center has changed so much, but it’s still a special place to visit!
I have many wonderful memories at Lincoln Center. When I was a little girl, my grandma-ma would take me shopping at Campbell’s for my birthday every year. Now as an adult, I have enjoyed many date nights with my husband at all the delicious restaurants. My favorite memories are enjoying the holiday celebrations with my kids. Lincoln Center always knows how to make Christmas feel extra special with Santa, snow, the train and more. Thank you Lincoln Center for being a part of my life and providing a safe space for fun family memories. I look forward to many more memories! (This is a photo from Christmas in 2019.)
Dutch Pride Dairy; it was a drive thru dairy where we got all out milk (in glass bottles), butter, and ice cream. The cows were kept to the North of Lincoln Center and milked behind glass right there. The guys who worked there would always ask me which cow did I want my milk from and convinced me that the black and white cows gave regular milk and the brown and white cows gave chocolate milk! (I was about 4 or 5 years old then). Our entire family has shopped there since it was built and we still shop there today. Miss the dairy to this day, but love all the shops currently and still buy all my fish and meat at Podestos (formally Gaines). Miss Gingham Gal and their large cinnamon rolls, but that’s life. Have new favorites today, still in Lincoln Center!
My favorite Lincoln Center memory is of doing the weekly shopping with Mom on summer break. The first stop might be picking up something at the Rexall drug store, next it was groceries from Gaines, and then checking out Jake’s Variety — a small treasure for me and an embroidery project or some yarn for my mother. If we had time, we could stop at Gingham Gal for lunch. Mama knew the cashiers and clerks, the butchers, the waitresses, and the business owners — everyone was SO friendly! And we often ran into neighbors and friends. I only wish I had a photo or two of Mom and I from those seemingly mundane trips. Turns out the “everyday” errands that often feel tedious at the time become some of our most cherished memories.
On behalf of the students, faculty, and staff of the Eberhardt School of Business, we would like to thank Lincoln Center for their support of the ESB and specific student-centered events, including Pancakes with the Dean and Raffle event at the ESB! Your generosity is greatly appreciated and truly brings a light and life to the student experience. The Eberhardt School was ranked #1 in the West and #10 nationally among business schools based at universities with 7,000 or fewer students by Poets & Quants which analyzes business education at U.S. universities. Many of you know the premier business and accounting education we have provided for decades and it is extremely satisfying for the Eberhardt School to be recognized regionally and nationally. We could not achieve these recognitions without your investment in our people and our programs. As we continue to elevate and strive for excellence at the Eberhardt School, we thank you for your support, as well as providing a place centered around family, food, and fun for the students of Pacific. GO TIGERS!
