Giving Party

Kent, Shelley & Terrin at Giving Party 2014A BIG Thank you to all who helped make the 2014 Giving Party – Throw Back Thursday, a success.

We had a LOT of fun as you can tell by the picture.  Shelley and I dressed up as ourselves from our high school days – I’ve changed, but of course, Shelley still looks the same.

Another big thank you to Terrin Thomas Miss Indiana 2013 (and DeKalb alumni) who was our guest.

Fall Play – While the Lights Were Out

Friday 7:30 & Sunday 2:00

A Thunderstorm! The lights go out! An agonized voice! A pistol shot! The lights come up! A brunette stands over the dead man holding a bloody dagger! The detective examines the body and announces “He’s been strangled! This is but the opening of one of the most astounding and hilarious murder mysteries ever staged. Every clue is a lulu and the plot twists furiously. The final solution involves the most bizarre motive ever conceived! The delightful evening of mayhem gallops madly about the stage and will leave you breathless with surprise and laughter.
