The New Old Time Chautauqua is coming to our area on July 24. They are camping in La Push courtesy of the Quileute Tribe for four days. A complete schedule will be available soon. On Monday, July 25, there will be a community potluck at Bogachiel State Park with talks and entertainment. Everyone is welcome.
On Tuesday, July 26, the troupe will be in Forks, helping out at Sarge’s Place, giving workshops at the RAC, visiting Long Term Care, putting on a parade and a big evening show. They will bring about 60 participants.
Of course, all this takes helpers. There will be all sorts of jobs to do from greeting people to loaning us some shovels and gardening tools. If you have an interest in offering a hand, it will be much appreciated. As always, the Rainforest Council for the Arts is putting on this great event for the benefit of all our community.
No one will be turned away for lack of money. There will be an opportunity to donate at the door of the big show if you can. A huge amount of work has gone into raising the funds to bring this group to La Push and Forks and generous folks have made substantial donations to make it possible. Now, we need others to help out. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can give of your time, loan your tools or help with food. If anyone has an old marching band uniform stashed away, the Forkestra will be needing uniforms for the parade.
You will thoroughly enjoy this zany, talented group of performers and musicians. It is a privilege to get to work with such amazing people. Again, look on the New Old Time Chautauqua website, www.chautuaqua.org, for more information and think about how you can help make this dream come true.
