Alice in Wonderland

The Sweet Home High School’s Theater Arts Class performed Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass on April 19 and April 20. The performance was directed by Leah White Hagan, and Act 1 told the 1951 story, Alice in Wonderland, in which Alice went through adventures in her dreams. Act 2 told the 2016 story, Alice Through the Looking Glass, in which Alice returns to the wonderland through her dreams once again. The smiles on the face of the stage crew during their ovation encapsulated truly how much work and effort went into making this possible.

Bingo for Christmas

Nancy Patton and many of her volunteers (pictured here) participated in a bingo night with an estimated 80 people in attendance at RezRock in Foster on March 19. The fundraising event included door prizes and raffle items donated from area businesses and individuals. As much as $1,630 was raised for the 10th annual Kids Free Christmas Store, which will be held in early December at Hope Church. Each year about $6,000 in collected funds is invested into the store so that Sweet Home children aged 2 through 12 can shop free for the families they live with.

New courts at the junior high school reveal their true lines as workers from McGovern Maintenance marked and painted boundaries for pickleball and basketball on Friday. Sweet Home seems to be a little short on access to outdoor basketball courts, so this one may be a welcome addition to the community.
