A Time to Perform

Fall is in the air! Thanksgiving is right around the corner. Time to reconnect with friends and family. Here are some suggestions to do visit with your out-of-town visitors: the McHenry Museum, the McHenry Mansion, the American Graffiti Cruise Route kiosks, the Gallo Center for the Arts, Blue Diamond store, Sciabicca’s store, the Farmer’s Market, Graceada Park, the Virginia Corridor Trail, Caswell Park and of course, the Great Valley Museum. There are many historical sites to appreciate. Be adventurous and creative! Be ambassadors for our city and county. Make sure you get tickets for Inherit the Wind at Gallo Center for the Arts.

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee is a hilarious musical comedy centering on six young contestants of a spelling bee, as well as the adults who assist and guide them. It’s a fascinating look at adolescent angst and the pressure of being a kid in a world that often expects them to act like adults.
