Preparations for our annual Valentines program are well underway and the first sound checks have already taken place. It is sure to be a great program you won’t want to miss! Tiffany Nicole Kennedy, Audra Wiggins Foltz, Joe Foltz, Tyler Stinson, Corey Hedge, Greg Collinsworth, Elaine Swinney Brunelle, Kiersten Harris, Jennifer Harris, Beau Lambert, Amy Laura Greene, Melanie McDowell, and Debbie Baker Harman are all set to set the mood while you enjoy dinner catered by Olive Branch Platters.
The program begins 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 9, 2023. Dinner and show tickets are $25 per adult and $12 per child under 12. If you don’t plan on eating, we’ve still got you covered. Show-only tickets are $10 per adult and $5 per child under 12.
So many other programs are also happening in February. Elaine Swinney Brunelle will begin private violin lessons. If you’re interested in learning how to play the violin, now is the time! She’ll teach any skill level, even those with no musical knowledge (such as myself!)
We also have a CPR certification class coming on Wednesday, Feb. 15 at 6 p.m. That class is $65 per person and space is limited. This is a great opportunity for business owners who often deal with public.
Robin Arnett will teach us how she makes cold-process soap from scratch on Feb. 18 at 10 a.m. and she’ll follow it up at 11 a.m. with a workshop for anyone interested in being a homeowner (either now or in the future). We’ll also have a loan officer on site to help you being the process. Soap class is $15 per person and participants will get to take home three bars of soap! Homebuying workshop is free and does not require registration.
Deanna Osborne will teach how she makes various flavors of pickles at 9 a.m. on that same Saturday, Feb. 18. She is highly experienced and sells her products at local farmer’s markets. She’ll have products available for sale during her workshop. A seat in that class is $10 per person.
Due to high demand, we’re limiting our free workshops (canning, quilting, and pottery) to participants who’ve already attended those workshops. For now, we will not be accepting new participants in those workshops.
If you’re interested in hosting a workshop, please contact us!
