Plenty of Fun

Junction City area festivities, events

W

hether you’re looking for some musical entertainment, amusement rides, vintage biplanes flying overhead, some delicious barbecue, or views of Kansas birds — it’s all here in the Junction City area. With significant events scheduled regularly during the summer months, the Junction City and Geary County area is quickly becoming an area known for its activities. Probably the biggest and most diverse is Sundown Salute. The several-day Independence Day celebration is bursting with activities for all ages. Held in historic Heritage Park in the heart of Junction City, the event features live musical bands throughout performing rock, pop, Christian and other genres. Geary County Convention and Visitors Bureau Director Connie Hall sat thinking about the answer to a question she maybe has never been asked. “What is your favorite event?” Hall was silent before stating, “That is a hard question to answer.” “All of our events are of such quality,” she said. “I guess Sundown Salute is always a favorite because we are celebrating the Fourth.” Other activities during Sundown Salute include rides and amusement games, a Freedom Run and the fireworks culminate the Fourth of July celebration. Another local event that couldn’t be more different is the National Biplane Fly-In held at Freeman Field in early June. The event brings dozens of vintage planes and crowds to see them on the ground and in the air. Hall called the Biplane event, which in 2013 will be on the same weekend as the return of collegiate baseball to nearby Rathert Field. Another of Hall’s favorite events is Jammin’ in JC Blues and BBQ festival held in September in Heritage Park. Free Texas-style blues concerts during the two-day event coincide with a barbecue contest. Texas-style blues is more of a swing type blues like Stevie Ray Vaughan was known for. Mixed in with the Texas-style tunes is the sweet and smoky smell of the barbecue event where there’s judging of pork ribs, beef brisket, chicken and pulled pork.

Although the event is not sanctioned, cash prizes are awarded in each category. Hall called Jammin’ one of her favorite events. “There’s a lot of hard work and sweat equity going into these events,” she said. “All this is done with the goal to bring community to the forefront for events.” Leading each summer of events is a lengthy line of bikers as they travel through Junction City in mid-May for the Run for the Wall

event. Last year, 450 bikers left JC on their way to Washington D.C. and their annual pilgrimage to the National Vietnam Veterans Memorial. However, before they ever get there, they stop at the Kansas State Vietnam Memorial right in the heart of Junction City. Run for the Wall promotes awareness of soldiers missing in action or listed as prisoners of war and also recognizes soldiers

killed in acstion from all wars. The date for this year’s 25th anniversary Run for the Wall stop in JC is May 19. “More riders are expected and we will be recognizing some local honorees,” Hall said of the stop here. She said it only makes sense the group stops in the middle of the country here in Junction City to visit the memorial. “Our military ties are strong and how appropriate that we rec-

ognize and welcome all the veterans,” she said. The bikers are welcomed along south Washington Street near Heritage Park as community members line the road hoisting American Flags. “This is the one of the most gratifying events we have,” Hall said of the Run for the Wall. “And, they are so grateful to us.” The event includes a ceremony at the memorial in Heritage Park. “This is one of their favorite stops,” Hall said. Later in the summer, head out to Milford Lake for an event you won’t forget — Float Your Boat cardboard boat races. Really. Only cardboard and duct tape is allowed. Vessels then take to the mild waters of Milford Lake to see if they can stay afloat. For Hall, it is easily the silliest event held in the area. “It is hilarious and the designs of the boats are amazing,” she said. “It’s just a fun event.” There are other reasons it is interesting for Hall and those who organize it. “We don’t know how many are coming,” Hall said. “There is no entry fee and no preregistration. They just show up. We never know who or what is going to show up.” Those who come from as far away as Topeka and Wichita and of course locally, they all have one thing on their mind — to stay afloat and win the bragging rights trophy. Oh and a crisp $20 bill. “They come from all over,” Hall said. “We never know if anyone will show up, but then they do. It is becoming more and more popular and growing every year.” For those who enjoy birding, there’s the Kansas Birding Festival in April in Wakefield. On Fort Riley, the Fall Apple Day Festival is a popular event. Held in September on the post’s Artillery Parade Field, it draws thousands of visitors, soldiers and their families. Sampling apple pies is a small part of the day’s activities. Children can also get up and personal with military equipment like tanks and helicopters. There’s also a weapons firing and mounted color guard events. “We are fast becoming the event capitol of Kansas,” Hall said. “These are all good quality events run by good people. “It’s hard to pick because they are all fun and so gratifying.”

Milford Lake biggest draw of area’s abundant fishing holes By Rick Dykstra Special Report

et the net! Those words have nothing to do with your computer or wireless service. They have everything to do with Milford Lake. Known as the “Fishing Capitol of Kansas” — Milford Lake is gaining more popularity every year. In 2012, the lake had more than 1.3 million visits. The diverse fishing is what makes the lake so different from many others. Anglers have plenty of choices when fishing. They can catch Bass, Walleye, Wipers, Catfish, Crappie, Whitebass and Bluegill. Fishing usually starts in late March and April with Walleye and Bass. Walleye will be moving shallow as the water approaches 50 degrees. The face of the dam is a popular place to fish during the early walleye period. Bass will start moving to the points, as to set up for the spawn, once the water hits the 60s. Don’t be surprised to see surfacing Wipers moving in some coves in May. During the month of May, the lake seems to explode with fish. Whitebass will be moving to spawn and can be caught in the river or along many different rocky banks. The bass are shallow and very aggressive. Channel and Blue Catfish are being caught in a variety of locations. Crappie are being caught both deep and shallow. The first week of June can be some of the best Walleye fishing of the year. The walleye move to flats to feed. You’ll see many boats drifting jigs with worms.

One of the more popular areas is just outside of Farnum Creek to the south. Some big Bluecats have been caught during this month, with many anglers fishing between Madison Point and the Military Marina. During July and August, anglers are fishing early and late. A good technique to use during this period is let the fish guide you. You can catch a wide variety of fish with a wide variety of

come, the Wipers and Whitebass really take off. By September seagulls have arrived at the lake and will guide you right to the fish. Keep a pair of binoculars and watch for diving gulls. They are feeding on shad that bigger fish have pushed to the surface. Using topwater lures and swimbaits are your best bet for catching these active fish.

When the fall months

most lake side businesses. Another good place to get timely information is in the afternoon at the boat ramps and fish cleaning stations. Don’t be afraid to speak with anglers, as most will share information with you.

If the big lake is not for you, try fishing at the many other bodies of water in our area. Fort Riley has a small lake and many ponds and they have fish to be caught. Some favorite ponds are Breakneck and Funston. Moon Lake is a great place for fishing and a family outing. You can get more information on fishing Fort Riley by contacting the Fort Riley Outdoor Recreation at: http://rileymwr.com/ odr/ The Gathering Ponds, located below the Milford Lake dam is an excellent place for fishing and other outdoor activity. Due to it connection with the Milford Fish Hatchery, special hours and regulations are in place. You’ll find many fishing piers and rock riprap fishing areas. Geary County State Lake, located about five miles south of I-70 on Hwy 77, has a variety of fish. Many bank anglers like this lake, as you can fish from a variety of locations. A bobber and worm is a favorite for many.

hen you mention the outdoors of Kansas, the thought of Geary County undoubtedly rises to the top. People from across the United States come to this area for the outdoors — fishing, birdwatching, boating, adventure racing, exploring and camping — are just a few of the reasons people come to this area. One outdoor activity not mentioned is a big draw for Kansas and this region is hunting. Outdoor Life magazine named Junction City as one of the Top 200 Towns to Live for Anglers and Hunters for four years in a row. Being located in the “Heart of the Flint Hills” provides hunters with unique terrain to hunt. The lands surrounding Milford Lake are the largest Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism public hunting lands in Kansas, with slightly more than 18,000 acres. Fort Riley has about 71,000 acres open for public hunting, though special restrictions and regulations apply. Between these two areas, hunters have the opportunity to hunt for Whitetail Deer, Dove, Upland Birds, Waterfowl and Small Game. A few hunters each year get the chance to hunt for Elk on Fort Riley. Though not as numerous as past years; Quail and Pheasant can still be found on public lands surrounding Milford Lake. Many hunters prefer to hunt Fort Riley for upland birds, but they can still be hunted around the lake. Small game such as rabbit and squirrels can be found in many of areas around the lake. Waterfowl hunting on public waters and land is done on and around the lake and at the river at the north end. You can find public lands for laying out decoys for goose hunting in the far north areas. Deer hunting is what brings many hunters to Kansas and we do have some big deer. I would say a majority of deer are taken on private lands, but do not overlook some of the public hunting lands. Though many people travel many miles to hunt this area, for those that live here, your backyard is truly a hunters paradise.

Gearing up to win

Lake Adventures Racing brings people to Milford Lake from around the country

By Tim Weideman city.beat@thedailyunion.net

M

ILFORD LAKE — Geary County often is noted for its excellent outdoor recreation opportunities, but what Charmion Harris has planned this year for Milford Lake may not be getting enough attention. Harris provides a service offered by no one else in the area and through her company, Lake Adventures Racing, brings people from across the country to the region for events sponsored by her company. “These events draw people from all over the United States,” Harris said. “There’ll be 100 to 125 people (at a given event) that never would have come to Milford Lake (otherwise). They’re huge, as far as ecotourism in this area.” Harris started her company about 12 years ago. At that time, she offered kayak rentals and instruction. After spending 2006 in Kodiak, Alaska, Harris developed a love for adventure racing, which was added to Lake Adventures in 2008, a year after she had returned to Kansas. “When I returned to Kansas, I looked for some of those similar activities in my area and couldn’t locate them,” said Harris, who is an analyst at Fort Riley and married to Acorns Resort owner, Mike Harris. Adventure racing focuses on multiple sports, such as paddling, orienteering, running, biking and rapelling. Racers form

“There’s a lot of strategy involved. It’s not just physical endurance, it’s also mental endurance.”

teams of two to three people and must travel to checkpoints on a map where those activities come into play. Lake Adventures Racing has held events at many area locales, including Milford Lake, Tuttle Creek Lake, Munson Angus Farms, Junction City, Manhattan and Fort Riley. This year, almost every event will be held near Acorns Resort on Milford Lake. Harris said it’s been about three years since

events have been held there. “A lot of these events, they’re not supposed to happen at the same location,” she said. “You’re supposed to change them up.” Harris added the point of changing locations is to further challenge participants. The races aren’t only a physical challenge. “There’s a lot of strategy involved,” Harris said. “It’s not just physical endurance, it’s also mental endurance.”

For example, teams must address their strengths and weaknesses to make sure they stick together. The teams normally have two or three members. During an adventure race, teams must stay within 100 feet of each other at all times. That rule can be trouble if one teammate is struggling. “They have to work that out so they don’t get disqualified,” Harris said. A unique service Other than adventure racing, Harris also is hosting two women’s retreats this year — one in April and the other in August. The retreats, which are led by women, are unlike any other Harris can find. Those who register stay at Acorns Resort and have all their food prepared for them. From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. for about four days, they participate in activities similar to those in adventure races. Yoga sessions

and massages also are added to the women’s daily itineraries. “These (retreats) have now become one of the most popular events that I offer,” Harris said. She said the retreats aren’t only for fitness gurus. “I open it up to all abilities, so even if someone has never done those things, or maybe feels they’re not physically active enough, I structure them so anyone can fit in,” Harris said. With the women getting to know each other through outdoor activities and team-building exercises, lasting friendships are easily formed, Harris said. She added many participants are single or the only member of their group of friends interested in taking on the outdoors. Both factors, Harris said, help form bonds among the women. “Being in the outdoors (for these activities), most women are in a situation they’re not comfortable in,” she said. “There are no preconceived notions about anybody, so the bonding happens very quickly on that level.” Harris said she knows of a group of women coming down from Minnesota this year specifically for a women’s retreat. A military spouse in Japan also has planned her leave based on retreat timing. Others come from surrounding states, such as Missouri, and communities not as far away, such as Wichita. But whether it’s for the retreats or for the races, Harris said people who travel to the region are very impressed with its natural beauty — and the challenges it presents during Lake Adventures’ events. “Most people are very surprised by the terrain,” she said. “They expect it to be flat and not as many trees. Most are really impressed with what we have here in the Flint Hills.”

Custer Hill

By Lisa Seiser m.editor@thedailyunion.net

Custer Hill Golf Course provides experience for military, area residents

F

ORT RILEY — The rolling features, deceptively difficult greens and well maintained fairways and rough at Custer Hill Golf Course is apparent from the moment a golfer steps to the first tee.

But there’s one aspect of the course it’s likely most don’t know. The course is open to the public. That’s why Custer Hill Golf Course general manager Dave Crawley would like to get the word out the course is open and ready for civilians from the area to enjoy a morning or afternoon on the course. Crawley said about 75 percent of the golfers who play the approximate 12,000 rounds at the course each year are soldiers and those military personnel who work at Fort Riley. The remaining are civilian players. “We would definitely like more civilians play up here,” he said. Crawley said there’s reason for people to head to the tees at Custer Hill. “We try to treat everyone like family out here,” he said. “We try to call them by name.” There are other reasons — the concession stand food and the 24-hour driving range. On the course, Crawley said the holes cater to all levels. However, he said he tends to see many intermediate

players. There are four sets of tee boxes on each hole for all ability levels. The course may not have a significant amount of water features or bunkers, but medium-sized greens that require solid play and proper placement of the ball on the greens. “People will sometimes ask, is it always this tough,” Crawley said. “There are a few holes out there that will get your lunch if you are not careful. A couple of those holes are the toughest — 15 and 16 have quite a few trees.” A PGA apprentice, Crawley said his lowest score on the course is a 2-under-par 70. His favorite hole on the course would be the par-4 15th hole. From the blue tees, it measures 446 yards and from the golds it is 433. The dogleg right requires an accurate tee shot down the middle between some trees. Crawley said the second shot depends on the wind, but will be uphill and require navigation of two more trees closer to the fairway. The 16th hole is a relatively straightforward 184-yard par-3 from the back tees. It measures 164 from the golds and 148 from the front reds. Overall, the course measures 7,072 yards from the blue tees. It is 6,725 from the golds, 6,272 from the whites and 5,323 from the reds. Although the course is quite brown right now, it will be just a couple months until the greenery shows. Come March, serious preparations will be made to ensure the course is ready for play as the weather warms. Crawley said the peak shape for the INN course is typicalQUALITY ly in early July.

Looking back at Fort Riley golf The golf club at Fort Riley originated in 1897 with 22 members. The Officer’s golf course, which was located around what is now Riley’s Conference Center, was constructed in 1925. It was a 9-hole house used strictly by the officers and their wives club. An attempt to build another 9-hole course in the Funston area was suggested in the late 1940s. Nearly half of that course was finished before the flood of 1951 wiped out all progress. In 1957, the 1st Engineers started building what is now Custer Hill Golf Course. Well known and renowned golf course architect Robert Trent Jones designed the course and was paid a fee of $5,000 for the plans in 1955. Custer Hill Golf Course improvements • Driving range shelter • Retiled snack area • Four new course water fountains • Range vehicles • Possibly new electric golf carts a summer will be rolling. The person who plays the 10,000th round will receive a set of golf clubs. Crawley said this upcoming season there will be more junior events and clinics to promote golf. There also will be a ProAm tentatively scheduled for June. “I am looking forward to the weather being nice and hopefully not too hot like it was this year,” Crawley said. “I am also looking forward to the troops coming back. I just like coming up here and working with the soldiers and helping grow the game of golf.” QUALITY INN 305 EAST CHESTNUT QUALITY INN STR JUNCTION CITY, KS 66441 305 EAST CHESTNUT STR EXITNEW 298, OFFKS1-70 JUNCTION CITY, 66441 APR 785-784-5106 EXIT 298, OFF 1-70 2007 785-784-5106

Play Ball Collegiate baseball’s back in Junction City

By Tim Weideman city.beat@thedailyunion.net

Historic Rathert Stadium Rathert Stadium has housed baseball in Junction City for more than eight decades. Constructed in the 1930s and renovated in 2005, the stadium, which is located at 900 W. 13th St. offers Junction City an historic sports entertainment venue. According to the city of Junction City’s website, Rathert has been dubbed the “finest ballpark in Kansas.” This summer, the Junction City Brigade joins the Junction City High School Blue Jays and the American Legion Flames as teams that play at the stadium.

he crack of a bat and the pop of a fastball in a catcher’s mitt will be familiar sounds this summer at historic Rathert Stadium when the Junction City Brigade begins its season. But Opening Night on June 1 will mean more than just the first summer collegiate baseball game in Junction City since 2010, according to Brigade general manager Mike Heldstab. “We’re all baseball fans, but before baseball, we’re members of the Junction City community,” he said. “Any money that is made from the team will go back into the community. Nobody is profiting off this team.” The Brigade has been established as a nonprofit organization that will work to serve residents, Heldstab said. “The biggest thing is we’re trying to provide, not only entertainment to the community, but we’re donating time and money,” he said. For example, Heldstab added, the team won’t only play ball. “They’ll also be active in the community to help kids, give them advice, play catch, whatever they need,” he said.

Players, who will come from Kansas colleges — such as Kansas State and Emporia State, and out of state colleges — will live with host families over the summer. At a press conference in January, Brigade manager Shane Sieben said the players’ college coaches will want to see improvement on specific skills sets. Sieben added he’ll work with the other coaches to identify goals for each player. “You have to return them better than you got them,” he said after the press conference. Seiben, who served a short stint as the

General’s manager before that team’s last season in 2010, has held several different coaching positions at multiple levels, including amateur and high school. Now a teacher and assistant coach of numerous sports at Manhattan High School, Sieben said he’ll draw on his coaching experience to help college athletes improve while they stay in Junction City for the summer. “I’ve been blessed to be around some outstanding coaches,” Sieben said. “There are a lot of coaches that I’ve gotten a lot of things from, drawn a lot of things from and it has influenced me positively.” Those connections will prove useful in recruiting players to Junction City, Sieben said. But Heldstab and the group involved in bringing back baseball this summer hope players aren’t the only people drawn to town. Heldstab said he hopes drawing players from the region will in turn bring more fans. Some of the players, he said, are from Manhattan, Clay Center, Riley County and Dickinson County. He’s also said people from cities such as Topeka and Wichita have expressed their excitement for baseball to resume at Rathert Stadium this summer.

“They said the atmosphere in Junction City can’t be matched anywhere,” he said at the January press conference. As plans for the season come together, Heldstab more recently announced team officials are hoping the Brigade plays in front of a packed house on Opening Night, which coincides with the National Biplane Fly In. “They’ll be flying over the stadium all day,” Heldstab said. Not only will another event occurring a mere 100 yards from the stadium help the Brigade on the first night, but also its affordable entertainment approach. Heldstab said tickets will cost about $5. Food and beverage options will feature a beer garden, typical stadium fare and, hopefully, catered items from a local restaurant. To produce a lively environment, fans will be treated to between-inning activities such as water balloon launches, frozen T-shirt contests and dizzy bat contests. The team is hoping fans see the Brigade as a good deal for summer entertainment throughout the inaugural season. “We’re expecting it to be a packed house, especially on Opening Night,” Heldstab said.

What you don’t know about the Opera House By Mary Louise Stahl Special to the Daily Union

T

his essay is for those who have never had the “Stahl Tour” of our facility. What facts or fantasy will I reveal? On first entering the big house, it is so easy to be bowled over by the elegance of the lobby. It has returned and surpassed its former glory. The enormous front doors are awe-inspiring and make you wonder why they had to be so darned big. Of course the answer is so that the fire department horses could pull the engine up the ramp from the basement and out to a fire. When I first toured the building in 1992, the horse stalls were still in place — complete with a bit of rubble from the day. Imagine a current public building feeding live stock in the cellar. I can assure you that no live animals live in our basement today — we think ... In days of yore, the dressing rooms were also down below the stage – making it a perilous trek up narrow stairs to get onto the stage. Some years ago, I discovered a really unique look into Opera House history — and the dressing rooms areas — as I read the book “Nora Beckham” — Joseph Stanley Pennell’s 2nd novel based in Junction City (he calls the town “Fork City” and makes other changes — 3rd & 4th streets and some other easy to decipher subterfuges). The novel even suggests that there was a tunnel from the Opera House to the Bartell Hotel that traveling performers used. Now — I will have to keep looking for that. Of course the configuration of the entire basement is different following the 2008 restructuring, now that we are cojoined to the Rolf’s building. But the original block walls and foundation can only be seen by descending the steps or elevator into the “Depths”! If you are a history junkie and love your city, you won’t be able to resist. The History of the Opera House is full of famous entertainers who performed on our stage — John Phillip Sousa, Annie Oakley — the list is long. Many historical theater tours include their “wall of fame” where the famous have signed in. But none of these signatures remain on our walls as a point of Please see Stahl, 9D

By Gail Parsons Special to the Daily Union

nside the C.L. Hoover Opera House, Mary Louise Stahl and Shannon Rosauer spent a portion of their morning making calls about upcoming shows and other features of the historic facility.

One of the upcoming shows is “The Miracle Worker,” from the Junction City Little Theatre (JCLT), which is set for this month. Although the JCLT and the Opera House are two separate operations, they go hand-in-hand when it comes to providing entertainment for the community. JCLT President Peter Pellegrin said the relationship is going well. “We like the idea of working together with the Opera House because it’s our home,” Pellegrin said. “If they succeed, we succeed.” JCLT operates as an production group, while the Opera House is the venue with technical assistance for traveling shows. “It’s so critical for our town to have a community theatre that is the local production company,” Stahl said about JCLT. “We have different functions but we need each other.” Pellegrin said the organizations satisfy entertainment needs in the community by providing different shows. The organizations recently collaborated for “Dream a Little Dream of Christmas,” which featured music, drama and humorous acts for the holiday season. It was the first time they came together for a production. “It was fantastic,” Stahl said. “I think for both parties, we felt it was successful. We meet all of our obligations and each half made a slight profit. The public had a wonderful time and we had $750

 great attendance for that show.” Security

plans to stop working with each other. When school students are not in class, summer theatre workshops give them a hands-on experience in theatrical training. “The fine arts is a way for our citizens to express themselves in positive ways,” Stahl said. Stahl has volunteered with JCLT as a volunteer and director. She has been involved with the Opera House since 2008. Along with providing an entertainment venue for the community the building has developed into a civic center for organizations, city meetings, family gatherings and for political forums. “This building should be the heart and soul of the town ...” Stahl said about her goal. Like Stahl, Shannon Rosauer, marketing manager, also volunteers for Little Theatre. Her husband Ryan is a board member and their 10-year-old daughter Abigail is involved with productions. After moving to Junction City, it was the first organization the family became involved with. “It provides a creative outlet for kids and families,” Rosauer said. “It also brings people together in the community, who may not otherwise meet.” A lot of crossover between the organizations involve marketing work by Rosauer. As 
a volunteer, she also assists with JCLT. 
 “In performing arts, marketing is 
 where the rubber meets the road,”

Rosauer said. “We don’t sell a concrete product. To have people come here, they have to know what’s going on.” JCLT began in 1949 under the vision of Bettina Coover and along with Betty Cleary, Mona Kessinger and Alma Hornbaker singed documents of incorporation to create the organization. Productions took place in various locations, which created challenges with lighting and scenery. In 1960, the organization rented a building on 18th Street from the city. Before the city obtained the building, it was previously the USO for black troops. In 2008, the organization found a home at the newly renovated Opera House. The building is also home to the Junction City Community Band. The Opera House provides storage for JCLT. Officials store as much as they can without violating fire codes. Whatever does not fit in the facility is stored across the street in a building owned by JCLT. Thousands of costumes, shoes, mask and props are stored in the facility. Pellegrin said JCLT probably has one of the biggest costume collections in the state. The facility also has a garage, which is used to build sets. Pellegrin said they are excited and looking forward to the future with Stahl and Opera House officials. Stahl feels the same way. “We have made some great strides working together,” Stahl said.

he Junction City Arts Council staff, volunteers and board members are exploring options for several new classes and activities in the coming year. Balancing the need to stay true to its mission with the need to increase revenue has resulted in a variety of fresh ideas and innovative projects. A wide range of classes are on the calendar, if a new class is well attended, it will continue otherwise that one will be canceled to free up the time and space for a new one. The goal is to have these Hands-on Studios operating on a regular basis all week. Currently JC Arts hosts five HandsOn studios. These are identified by the level of arts education that attendees attain. Hands-On studios introduce the novice to a variety of arts and include classes for adults and children. The most popular of the studios is the Saturday Elementary Art class. This is a class where elementary school students are introduced to a variety of arts to include printmaking, painting and drawing techniques. Students generally finish a project in one class setting, but for some of the more time intensive projects two or three weeks may be necessary. Immense research in the field of child development shows overwhelming support for active arts education for children. The evidence is clear that children who receive arts education outperform those without the exposure and opportunities. The arts develop habits that support all other academics and provide students with learning experiences that engage their minds, hearts and bodies. Arts education enhances creativity, self-discipline and the skills and confidence necessary to meet the challenges of the 21st century. JC Arts has many volunteers with varying levels of arts education in their background, and a variety of talents and arts interests. One common denominator is that they all have the desire to ensure that local youth have the opportunities that are afforded youth in higher populated areas. While the youth are a large segment of the focus there is also a need to keep arts programming available to the adult pop-

ulation. The Paint and Wine Studio is a new activity that invites people to come in and uncork their creative spirit. We provide the canvas, paints, wine glasses and corkscrew; attendees bring a spirit of fun and a bottle of wine. This program came to us through a volunteer and is expected to grow and be included in a growing list of events that we do for private groups and parties. Another program for the adults is Improvisational Theater. This group of volunteers is responsible for the murder mystery dinners that JC Arts hosts four times a year. These minifundraisers exemplify one of the principals JC Arts operates on. We believe in keeping people engaged in the arts. In the Murder Mystery Dinners actors and attendees stay engaged. The actors, most of whom are very busy don’t generally have a lot of time to devote on a daily basis as they might if they were involved in Community Theater. The plays are improvisational, the actors do get together four or five times in advance to go over the basic sequence of events, but from there they make up their dialog as they go along. With each performance and with each practice the scenes change. When it comes time for the event, the audience gets drawn into the performance. The cast is often mingling

pride. However, in our new life, our tech director has created a wall where current performers can sign their names for future generations to view. To see this newly created wall of fame, one has to have the official backstage tour. Some signatures are already collectable and others will only increase in value over time — and we’ve got lots of time invest. Taking a little known set of steep stairs all the way to the media booth above the balcony, there is a special entry that reaches the clock

Volunteer opportunities At JC Arts we have volunteer opportunities for those who are artistically inclined and those who can’t draw a straight line with a ruler. Anyone interested in volunteering can stop in The Gallery at 107 W. Seventh St., call 785-762-2581, or visit the web site at www. junctioncityac.org. Volunteer opportunities include: • Office work — If you’re comfortable with the computer, we have several projects that are strictly word processing and data entry projects. • Instructors — The Hands-On Studios is a constantly revolving and evolving program. We are always looking for people interested in instructing different classes based on what they are comfortable with. If you have an idea for a class, please share it; otherwise contact us and we’ll let you know where we still need people. We also need people for the occasional class. • Improv actors — The Improv Theater presentations are not real time intensive, but they do require someone who is comfortable with the concept of not having a script and being able to work well with the other cast members. • Crafters & Artists — We often need people to designs flyers, make centerpieces, make upcoming projects, and window arrangements. among the guests who are invited to interrogate the suspects and solve the crime. As adult themes sometimes inadvertently come through JC Arts discourages children from attending. The improv performances, the Wine and Paint classes, birthday parties for children, and other art classes are all projects that JC Arts have put together for private parties. The classes, events, and activities ensure the mission of Cultivating the Arts and Encouraging Creativity. But, revenue building remains a primary function of JC Arts. After having lost all public funding, which had accounted for about 80 percent of the budget, membership and private contributions have become more vital than ever. tower. And there lies our truly historic wall of fame — those movie theater workers who climbed up high during the movie and signed their name — or a fact about themselves — on the walls and beams. The graffiti is unique to say the least — a real historic record of some employees — Kathie 1968,” Larry “1961,” Woody “1934,” Brandy 1942, Jerry “1954,” Terry 1966, Kay 1952, and Elmer 1942. If you ever worked at the “Colonial” — some of your history may be gracing our upper room. As we add to our new wall of fame, we are continuing the second hundred years of memorable entertainment in your town.

This is the first year members will see the result of changes made to the membership structure last year. For the first time, JC Arts has moved to a rolling membership, which means that membership is no longer based on a calendar year; rather it is based on when the member became a member. There is also a concerted effort to work with local business and industry to create real partnerships in the community. The only way to ensure that happens is to have a strong volunteer staff. Volunteers have been stepping up to help now that the operating hours and paid staff have been reduced as a cost-saving measure.
