We have a group of over 50 area residents enjoying a trip to Cape Cod this month and it sounds like a very interesting trip. We hope to have a few “day” trips coming up soon and our next big trip will be to Branson, November 25 through December 1. Highlights of this seven day trip include seven fabulous shows that include the Red Skelton Tribute Show, Hooray for Hollywood, the Jim Stafford Show, Tony Orlando show and many more. We already have a large number of people signed up, so if you’re interested please contact us soon before we’re full.
Tickets are now on sale for our biggest fund raising event of the year. We are very excited to bring the number one show in Nashville to Cannon Falls on August 18; at the High School Auditorium at 7 p.m. “The Tim Watson Show” will be here, featuring a complete show with the best music, comedy and more! Last November we had over 40 area residents on our trip to Nashville, and Tim Watson was the best show we attended, by far. Tickets are on sale now for $25 at Shepherd’s Center, First Farmers & Merchants Bank, White Rock Bank, Scofield Drug and online at www.shepherdscenter.eventbrite.com.
Get your tickets early…the auditorium only holds 600 people. Special thank you to First Farmers & Merchants Bank along with White Rock Bank for their help in making this huge event happen!
I hope everyone enjoyed the“Feature,” our summer newsletter that came out recently. As you might have noticed, there was an envelope enclosed to use for donations to Shepherd’s Center. Thank you to those of you who have already sent in your donation, it is very much appreciated and helps us continue to serve the Cannon Valley area. This past month, we received memorial donations in honor of Mary Rehbein, Phyllis Fox, Colin Callister and Louie Davisson…we also received a donation in honor of Colin
Callister’s July birthday. Thank you all for the generous support of Shepherd’s Center.
A reminder that TRIAD is held monthly at Shepherd’s Center, held the 2nd Wednesday of each month starting at 10 a.m. Each month features an interesting speaker…in June we enjoyed finding out about the Goodhue County Posse and this month the speaker is local Tech Wizard, Ryan Cooper. His topic will be “Have Fun - Be Safe on the Internet!” Kids and adults will become more aware of the fun or the danger in this computer age.
The Emmy award winning television personality, Art Linkletter passed away three years ago. July 17 would have been his 100th birthday. I’ve always enjoyed him, especially his favorite story about being old. Once he was visiting a nursing home and he gave his picture to an elderly patient. As she pondered his promotional photo, he asked, "Ma'am do you know who I am?" The women looked up at him and said, "No, sir. I don't. But if you go to the front desk someone there will tell you."
Enjoy the summer; it’ll be over before we know it!
