Christmas in July - 2008

 

There was quite a turn-out on Monday night, July 14th, at Calvary Baptist Church for Christmas in July. It was definitely a night of fun, food, fellowship and craft-making!  After a short service and prayer, the audience was introduced to the crafts that would be available for them to create. 

 

 

Women and children filled the tables in the work-room, working on a variety of ornaments and crafts... a fun, early preparation for Christmas.

 

Participants concentrated on detailed instructions, such as how to make and decorate embossed tiles.

 

After their creative endeavors, everyone was treated to lots of colorful, scrumptious treats... a nice reward for such pleasant efforts.

"A Don't Hug Me County Fair "

Starts April 22 - Runs Through May 23

The Opera House - New Rockford

 

 

 

    A Don't Hug Me County Fair is the hilarious sequel to the smash hit musicals Don't Hug Me and A Don't Hug Me Christmas Carol. It's a stand alone musical that doesn't require you to see the others in order to fully enjoy it. Itís county fair time in Bunyan Bay, Minnesota, the biggest thing thatís happened since the winter carnival snowplow parade. This year the Bunyan County Fair means two things to Gunner and Clara Johnson, owners of a little bar called The Bunyan; The big County Fair Fishing Contest and The Miss Walleye Queen Competition. Bernice, the pretty waitress, sees this as her big chance to win Miss Walleye Queen, to be discovered, and more important, to have her face carved in butter at the Minnesota State Fair. The trouble begins when Gunnerís wife, Clara, decides she also wants to win Miss Walleye Queen, and when Gunnerís estranged twin sister, Trigger, shows up to try to win the beauty pageant, things get ugly.
 Check their website for details, or if you are on Facebook you can visit their site and see lots of great pictures and comments about previous shows.  Click here for the dates and times of all performances.
