St Bart’s in Newaygo will be the first host for the three Advent Soup’s On gatherings this Tuesday December 5th beginning at noon and ending at 1pm. Tis the season so soaking up some spirituality with your soup serving seems a suitable suggestion.

The Dogwood will be rolling out a pair of performances this week as the highly acclaimed Windham Hill comes to town. The trio of accomplished acoustic artists will take to the Main Stage Thursday at 7:30pm. I recently picked up on a youtube of pianist Liz Story doing Greensleeves (What Child Is This?) and it was captivating. This will be a concert folks will be talking about long after WH has packed their instruments and hit the road.
And should you find at this point, even with all the holiday revelry occurring around us, that your inner Scrooge is still erupting take heart. The next night a festive family feast of fun hits the Dogwood as Roger Day brings his Christmas Show to the Main Stage at 7:30pm Friday.
Dogwood Note: Joshua Davis is returning Friday, December 15th. More later but grab your tickets while you can.
Snow White was a sellout his for Stage Door Players in White Cloud this past weekend so get a hold of some tickets for their final shows Friday and Saturday and check out some of the young talent that abounds in our area. Downtown White Cloud. Box office opens at 6pm, seating begins at 6:30pm, Showtime 7pm.
Fremont is kicking off their weekend stroll with the highly regarded Illumination Parade beginning at 6pm Friday. Fremont is serious about parades and puts on the best to be found in the area. This one's a beaut and culminates with a sea of activity in the downtown area.
Lots of options, plenty of fun and a gaggle of good times out there folks so kick it up and partake in a little seasonal revelry.
