A memorable ‘Tree of Remembrance’

Julie Raefield-Gobbo, director of Providence Foundation, writes:

“To Jack Trumbull and the Tree of Remembrance Team:

“What a wonderful evening last night (Dec. 12). I felt honored to be there and share in the moving reflections and respect offered to families and their lost loved ones. Thank you for making this available in our community. We are all made better as a result. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

Tree of Remembrance is a community event held each year at Anderson’s Tribute Center, involving prayer, music and a dedicated Christmas tree with special ornaments for people to leave messages and mementos to honor loved ones.

"The tangled skirt" opens run at unique venue

Director Judie Hanel presents the Steve Braunstein play “The Tangled Skirt” in an unusual theatrical setting, River Daze Café. Here, Bailey Brice (Bruce Howard) arrives at a small town bus station and has a fateful encounter with Rhonda Claire (Desiree Amyx Mackintosh). Small talk turns into a deadly game of cat and mouse and both seek advantage. The actors present the story as a staged reading in the café, where large windows and street lights lend themselves to the bus station setting, according to Hanel. Performances are 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 28, Saturday, Sept. 30 and Sunday, Oct. 1. (There is no Friday performance.) Tickets available at the door or Waucoma Bookstore: $15 adults, $12 seniors and children under 15. No children under 9. Enlarge
