, iiiii!ii i by lennox "I'm so ready for spring." How many times have you heard someone say that recently? I've said it many times myself The last week has given us all some hope that nice weather is really just around the corner. We've been going outside without shivering and the best sign of spring..r0bins, are che.cking out my lawn in hopes of finding a nice big juicy worm.. I think they still have a little time to wait but it's getting closer. At the mill, we've been working on several projects and activities. During March, we had the first performance of A1 Grund's original play "The Portal."A small but appre- ciative audience enjoyed it very much and the actors of Brush Creek Readers Theater are honing their skills and getting better with each performance. ! hope you will keep this in mind as the mill offers more of these types of cultural programs. One of the goals of Brush Creek Mill is to offer different and special entertainment at a low cost for the community at large. The next program being offered during April is an en- core performance of "Two Soldiers, Reflections on the War Between the States." This is a condensed version of the four part event from last summer. Many people were only able to attend one or two of these sessions and this April offering will give them an opportunity to view the entire, though shorter, program. A1Grund, who wrote the songs and script, will open the program at 4:30 pro. At 5:30, we will break for a pizza supper and a social hour. This gives the audience an opportunity to speak with the musician/composer and ask any questions they may have. At 6:30, the program will resume for approximately anadditional hour. Those who attended last summer's Civil War Program gave glowing reports so be sure you don't miss out on this. There will be a charge of $8 at the door which includes the supper of pizza, coffee or soft drinks and dessert. The mill will be open all day on Saturday, April 13, so come early and browse the gift shop for many new items and stay for this entertaining and educational program. You will be happy you did. Soon we will be sending out our membership applica- tions. We have many members of Brush Creek Mill in Montmorency County and far beyond. Their support is the reason we are able to be open year round and offer ,the types of programs I have reported on. The mill also offers areas for hobby groups, such as quilters', spinners and knitters', scrapbooking and card making, free of charge. We also provide areas for children's groups, such as 4-H and Girl Scouts, all without charge. The many benefits the mill offers this community are too many to list here but next week, I will devote the article to a more inclusive report. Brush Creek Mill is entirely self supporting, we do not receive any tax dollars. Brush Creek Mill is also, entirely volunteer staffed. Everyone here is a volunteer and they give of their time and their talents without expecting anything in remm except your support of this organiza- tion, an organization which is unique for a small north- eru community.
