A stunning photographic display of Mothers and Daughters entitled “As We Are,” by Susanna Tanner is available for viewing at the MacDowell Gallery at Reid Hospital starting today. These are local Moms with their girls from Girls Inc. of Wayne County. You will be moved by the love that is captured so artfully by Susanna.
If you want to treat your mother, grandmother, friend, or yourself to a wonderful show of art and love- don’t miss this exhibit! It is truly moving.
How does your image of yourself change when you truly see yourself, with all of your flaws and imperfections, as a whole, unique person, worthy of acceptance and joy? How does your image of others change when you do the same for them?
This workshop will explore the many ways we struggle with self-image, doubt and the feeling that we are not enough. Through guided journaling prompts and art collage, we will discover the beautiful truths about ourselves, and create a set of your truth cards to remind us of these truths.
Limited seating available and all supplies are provided! Fun doorprizes! Bring a friend! Go to eventbrite to register.
Beauty And The Beast
If you have not gotten your tickets yet, you can still stop by the Civic Hall box office and pick them up. The RHS Players are bringing to the stage a beloved classic: Beauty and the Beast. See below for your invitation to a live stage performance by local actors, vocalists and musicians.
The film takes viewers on a journey to travel Indiana’s historic roads and try to answer the question “Why would anyone want to preserve a historic road?” Is it the construction methods, the materials used, the people who lived on them or the journey remembered? Viewers will see the scenic beauty, meet amazing people and hear wonderful stories about life along the road, past and present. Then someday when faced with the “Y” in the road, each viewer’s choice may be to slow down, travel the historic road and relive some of their own memories.
Produced, written, filmed and directed by three mid-westerners, the film sets out to answer the question “Why are Indiana’s historic roads so important to preserve?” Candy Yurcak of Metamora, Indiana, was the film’s Producer/Director and also serves as Director of Whitewater Canal Scenic Byway. Lori Cravens of Zionsville, Indiana, served as Associate Producer/Director. The creative lead on the project was Logan Moeleer of Cincinnati, Ohio, who took on the role of Cinematographer/Director.
Wayne County is well-represented in the film with on-camera interviews with a number of Wayne County residents. Nancy Sartain, Leisure Marketing Manager at Richmond/Wayne County Convention & Tourism Bureau, planned, organized and escorted the film crew to various Wayne County sites important to the Old National Road and US 27.
The film debuted at the IMAX Theatre at the Indiana State Museum in September. Here is a link to the trailer for the film: https://vimeo.com/48992357

Several excited girls gathered at the Next Step Studio to go over their past recital numbers to share with residents of Friends Fellowship on Saturday, July 21, 2012.
Many weeks had passed since the girls had performed in their recitals, but the steps came back to them and they and their teachers, Laura and Michelle, were all happy they could remember.
Taking a break from summer activities, the dancers donned their costumes, headed to the studio to practice and then on to Friends Fellowship. The residents were awaiting their arrival, many with smiles on their faces as the girls came into the community room.
Laura Hinkley, dance instructor at The Next Step, introduced the dancers as a group and later each girl individually as they finished their numbers. At the end of the program the dancers had a surprise for the residents. They had colored pictures and distributed them to the audience as they chatted with them.
There were many happy faces, young and a bit older, as the girls filed out of the Community Room of Friends Fellowship and were on their way to their next adventure of the day. (To see more pictures of Next Step visits Friends Fellowship, go to our Facebook site: GoWayneCounty).
The Next Step Studio is located on the east side of town off of S. 13th, turning off of L. Street. There is still room to sign up for lessons this Fall. The next two dates for sign up are: Friday August 10 from 5-7 p.m. and Saturday, August 25, from 9-12. Lessons start the first week in September. Terry Runnels, owner of the Next Step, is also the Devilette instructor at RHS with decades of experience.
