Last Saturday turned out to be a beautiful day and what more can you ask for when there are two 5Ks scheduled to take place! Run for Life, benefitting the Free Women’s Clinic of Pulaski County and Run for the Paws, benefitting the Pulaski County Humane Society both had great turnouts on this sun-shining day. Run for Life took place in the Waynesville City Park while Run for your Paws took place at Sellers-Saxton. Neither events could have taken place without the help of their many volunteers!

Frankenstein also premiered this past weekend with two more weekends to go! If you aren’t sure if you want to see it or not, read this review by our own Mitzi Sparks who just loved it!
“Theatre on the Square Fall production of Frankenstein is the story about Victor Frankenstein (played by Kevin Liberty) and his struggle to find his true self through the real, feeling, living, & articulate “creature” (played by Steven Seda) he has created. Victor, the creator, abandons his “creation” and deals with him in ways that puts Victor’s loved ones in harm’s way. This is a different version of Frankenstein than we remember seeing. You will be laughing and crying. The casting of characters is wonderful. Veteran performers include Bob Hooper, Laura Milner, Shannon Shrum, Gary Akins, Robert Yount, Clara Marie Tupper, Dalton McCart, and Stevie Tupper. Newcomers include Joe Tupper, Brad Moran, Randall Helm, Jack Spady, and Lucas McDonald. This is a production you should see! This is a PG-13 rated production. Ticket price are $10 for adults and $5 for children 12 years and under. “ – Mitzi Sparks
Exciting things happened here at the Tourism Bureau this week when the Bicycle Adventure Club rolled down Route 66 in Pulaski County! Karen and I were on top of it, though, and went back out to Route 66 like we did last week to get some more video and photos. The Bicycle Adventure Club (BAC) is a non-profit, bicycle touring club for serious cyclists run by its 1,500 volunteer members. They are riding Route 66 from Chicago to Amarillo and range in age from 55 to 81 years old! Thank you for spending the night in Pulaski County USA!

Come on out to see Native American Dancing, music, lots of vendors, eat frog legs and watch a Frog Race! There is also a Hudson Car Show tomorrow! Come on out to Fort Leonard Wood to see these classic cars that were only produced between 1909 and 1957. This event is open to the public! Tonight there is a big Zumba Party in Pink to help raise money for Breast Cancer and you can still catch the production of Frankenstein tonight and tomorrow night!
