The Wash­ing­ton Youth Drama Club had a busy week­end! On the evening of Satur­day Oct. 28, they en­ter­tained a full house with a din­ner theater mur­der mys­tery called “Mur­der, May­hem and Marsh­mal­low Salad.”

On Sun­day, dur­ing the 11 a.m. ser­vice, the kids per­formed an orig­i­nal play called “The Protes­tant Re­for­ma­tion — A Wives’ Tale” which was writ­ten by Rev. Jan McKinney telling the his­tory of the Protes­tant Re­for­ma­tion from the per­spec­tive of the re­form­ers’ wives. This pro­duc­tion was in honor of the 500th year an­niver­sary of the Protes­tant Re­for­ma­tion.

The WBC Youth Drama Club meets on Tues­days af­ter school un­til 5 p.m. Their next per­for­mance will be a Christ­mas Play on Dec. 17. Please con­tact Rev. Jan McKinney at wbc.dra­maclub@ gmail.com or ad­di­tional in­for­ma­tion.

ADAMS PRE­SEN­TA­TION

From Jan­uary 20-March 26, Gay Street Gallery will host an ex­hi­bi­tion ded­i­cated to the work of the our own Shenan­doah Na­tional Park Artist in Res­i­dence Kevin H. Adams.

The Park an­nu­ally is­sues a na­tional call for ap­pli­ca­tions and Kevin was se­lected by this year's jury. He spent two weeks paint­ing in the Park in June. The Artist in Res­i­dency pro­gram is made pos­si­ble by the sup­port of the Shenan­doah Na­tional Park Trust.

Each artist who ac­cepts a res­i­dency agrees to do­nate a piece of art to the Park for its per­ma­nent col­lec­tion. Kevin will present this paint­ing —“2 Mile Over­look,” 24 X 24, oil on can­vas — to the su­per­in­ten­dent of the Shenan­doah Na­tional Park dur­ing an open­ing re­cep­tion on Jan­uary 20th, and will show for the first time ap­prox­i­mately 20 more paint­ings he started while on lo­ca­tion in the Park.

If you would like to be in­vited to the re­cep­tion, con­tact the Gallery to join its email list: www. gaystreet­gallery.com. Con­grat­u­la­tions, Kevin.

CARE­FUL IN WOODS

With the month of Novem­ber now hav­ing ar­rived, many hunts­men will be head­ing to the woods for their fa­vorite sport. So please, please be care­ful, as no one likes to re­port any tragic events. Be sure to wear your orange — or pink — cap or vest so you can be seen by other hunters.

SYM­PA­THY

Sym­pa­thy goes out to Keith Rowand on the death of his mother, Ma­bel “Rusty” S. Rowand, 89, of Wash­ing­ton. She passed away on Mon­day, Oct. 23. I per­son­ally did not know her, but if she is Kevin Adams will present this oil on can­vas “2 Mile Over­look” to the Su­per­in­ten­dent of the Shenan­doah Na­tional Park dur­ing an open­ing re­cep­tion on Jan­uary 20th, and will show for the first time ap­prox­i­mately 20 more paint­ings he started while on lo­ca­tion in the Park.

any­thing like her son, Keith, who is so kind and would do any­thing for you, then I know this lady was won­der­ful. Keith, may you and your fam­ily find the peace in your hearts know­ing that your mom is in a bet­ter place and watch­ing over you ev­ery day.

FALL BACK

Re­mem­ber to turn your clocks back one hour this Sun­day, Nov. 5. Day­light Sav­ing Time changes are also the per­fect re­minder to do as our fire de­part­ments rec­om­mend: change the bat­ter­ies in your smoke de­tec­tors.

Have a won­der­ful week­end!
