We will start August out with bang. Holding with tradition we will travel to Lanesboro for a fabulous production of “Steel Magnolias” at the Commonweal Theatre. There we will see the renowned play by Robert Harling. After 30 years, there’s still no story that better celebrates the gift of friendship than Steel Magnolias! The close-knit women who frequent Truvy’s Beauty Salon have lots of time to gossip, but it’s their unshakable bonds that define them. With its mix of quick humor, quirky personalities and touching sentimentality, you’ll fall in love all over again with a story and characters that are “as delicate as magnolias but as tough as steel.” This not-to-be-missed outing will take place on Thursday, August 3. We will leave from the church at 4pm. We will start the evening with dinner at one of Lanesboro’s fine establishments followed by the play. Dinner is on your own, the play is $25 per person if we have ten or more people. You can pay Brian for the tickets the night of the outing. Please let Brian Narveson know by Monday night July 31 if you are planning on attending: 608.526.9700 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
