Ryan McMahon is coming in September. It is not all about the biggest names but I would love to get Barney Bentall here,” he admitted.

International Fairy Day June 23 at Errington Farmers Market. Fantasy, imagination and a little bit of pixie dust will come together at the Errington Farmers’ Market on Saturday, June 23. June 24 is International Fairy Day and to celebrate the butterfly winged cherubs, the public is invited to come make a fairy house for the market woods in Errington Park. All ages are welcome to participate from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be some all natural, responsibly gathered supplies and a couple whimsical fairy house builders on hand to help. As the fairy houses will remain in the woods, only natural materials to the area can be used and folks are encouraged to bring any suitable materials for the project. Things like sticks, bark, dry grasses, pebbles, shells, feathers and pinecones are great additions but just be sure to be respectful of all living things … fairies are careful to never harm.

Baskerville are brand new scripts. It is really amazing for us to get something so new. For a local amateur theatre group to get the rights on two brand new shows that nobody else is doing … I love that.” The Savannah Sipping Society directed by Jay Norton is a delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy featuring four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines. They are drawn together by fate and an impromptu happy hour and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. In Baskerville, comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure. Directed by Mike Moroz, the comedy observes intrepid investigators trying to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than forty characters. Teen Musical Theatre’s Beauty and the Beast Jr. tells the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped under a spell of an enchantress.

Now we have thousands upon thousands of plants and I take care of them all and I enjoy it,” she laughed. She said she believes in keeping things simple and while she has hundreds of varieties to choose from they are always affordable. All of her plants are always the same price: 4/$24 or $6.97 each. As for the rock art, prices vary based on the size and complexity of the job. Melissa did point out that their rock is much less expensive than some of the imported rocks used for headstones. “A lot of memorials use traditional rock that is sometimes from Asia and the Middle East. We try to use local rock,” she pointed out. She said some cemeteries insist that headstones be cut and polished because they have special design requirements but some grave yards are more lenient with rules and dimensions. MORE INFORMATION
