Wednesday, October 16, 2013 The Montmorency County Tribune 9 Sue floor Desp.ite the damp weather, many people came out to enjoyapple dumplings. It's so nice when the town has a reason to con- gregate and socialize. Thank you to all who peeled apples, made dough, picked apples, baked, and hauled the thousands of apples, and to those who served up the tasty dumplings, worked on setting up and cleaning afterwards to make the An- tiques/Applefest a success. Without the help of many, this event could not take place. Now that the Applefest is over, Brush Creek Mill is planning for their next com- munity function. The dinner theater will be onNovember9 at the HillmanElemen- tary School. The program will include two O'Henry short stories; "The Gift of the Maji" and "The Last Leaf." Tickets will be on sale beginning Oct. 18. They will be available at Brush Creek Mill, Lickety Splits, Hillman, Atlanta and Lewiston Li- braries, and from Brush Creek Mill board members or volunteers. These short sto- ries will be acted out by local residents. It will be a radio style performance where the scriptsare read in front of the audi- ence. We have had a lot of successful "ac- tors" who have read scripts in the past. It's always an enjoyable evening of entertain- ment. We will serve a home made lasagna din- ner with salads, garlic bread and a variety of desserts. Advance tickets are $10 and tickets sold at the door are $12. Doors will open at 4:45 pm, and dinner will be served at 5:30 pm. Make plans now to attend this annual fall event.
