January and February give us all a chance to take a breath after the holidays and plan for the upcoming year. The historical society has the full first floor covered with antique woodworking tools of years gone by! Be sure to stop by and see it. Meanwhile, the players are working fast and furious to plan for the new year. The SUMMARY OF EVENTS FOR 2016 will be in the CoBACH building next week for you to pick up, and it's a LOT OF STUFF!. In May we have the Downtown Merchants LADIES SHOPPING NIGHT on the 5th, and later in the month, we are having our FIRST EVER ANNUAL 'MILLPONDERINGS' (storytelling night) at the CoBACH. We'll be contacting all local high schools and inviting interested adults to participate for one night only. Young speakers will begin at 8:00 for one hour.....then the adults start at 9:00 p.m. This is a family friendly free-to-attend event. Five minutes of time to 'tell your true story'....... the theme of the evening will be announced in the summary next week! In JUNE our HISTORY ALIVE program will continue for 2016 with 'WILL ROGERS"......... what a great way to celebrate FATHERS DAY with your dad or grandpa! Will ROGERS was the most celebrated journalist and humorist of his time. His observations on the human condition will make you laugh and think REALLY HARD! OPEN MIC will be back during the BBQ and Blues fest......and our first ever FAIRIE PARTY will be in May also!! Keep checking back with this website for additional information as plans are finalized. Online tickets will be on sale about one month before each event. Oh yes....did I mention that WILL ROGERS AND MARK TWAIN will be appearing together in OCTOBER, just in time for some insightful dialog about the upcoming elections! You won't want to miss them TOGETHER AGAIN FOR THE FIRST TIME in October! Don't forget to join Brighton's Own Livingston Players for the 2016-2017 season. You can enroll on line and pay with pay pal any time. If you are a first time member (never ever joined before) you can join for the first year for only $10.00. What a deal!
