Monday, July 11, 2022 7pm

"Meet Me in St. Louis" is a classic MGM romantic musical comedy that focuses on four sisters (one of whom is the nonpareil Judy Garland) on the cusp of the 1904 St. Louis World's Fair. The film spotlights the sisters' education in the ways of the world, which includes, but isn't limited to, learning about life and love, courtesy of the prototypical boy next door. In the end, love -- accompanied by song, dance and period costumes, all in glorious Technicolor -- conquers all.

“The Promised Land: Adventures in the Middle East”

Saturday October 1, 2022 @ 2PM

THIS EVENT IS PAY WHAT YOU WILL

Rick Ray Films
When you hear the words “The Middle East”, what images are conjured in your mind?
Do you imagine unparalleled hospitality, dynamic people, breathtaking desert scenery
and fascinating archeological sites dating back to the dawn of time? Or do you
imagine instead terrorism, religious intolerance, and fanatic political figures?
In reality, the Middle East is a region of paradoxes. It`s a land where people go
out of their way to make a stranger feel at home, but it is also a land where
throughout history has witnessed acts of unspeakable brutality between enemy
tribes and clans.
This film represents a personal Journey in words and images through several
Middle Eastern countries including Israel, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey.
It will include wonders such as Petra, Jerusalem, the Cedars of Lebanon,
and Cappadocia.

JOIN US FOR AN EVENING WITH FOUR-TIME INSPIRATIONAL COUNTRY ARTIST OF THE YEAR. LAUGHTER, MUSIC, ENCOURAGEMENT AND INSPIRATIONAL STORIES
Shellem Cline is a nationally recognized Christian Country/Positive Message artist who has performed on the professional level since 2012. Cline began his career on a local level singing Gospel Music with his family, the Gilbert Family. In 2004 Cline’s grandfather Carl Gilbert was diagnosed with Crones Disease and shortly after, the family left the road. Since then, Shellem traveled on a regional level as a solo artist and in 2006, at the age of 18, saw an increase in his ministry and music career. Since his “professional” beginning in 2012, Cline has received multiple honors including: New Excelling Artist (2012), Young Excelling Individual of the Year (2013), Favorite Vocalist (2013), Songwriter of the Year (2014), Christian Music Forerunner (2014) and many nominations for other prestigious awards. Cline has also received 15 top 80 hits in the Christian Country industry, seven of which Cline was the writer. Currently to date, Cline has received five number one hits in Christian Country Music. Cline’s most popular hit, “Blue Jeans and Biscuits” came on the scene in October 2016, and worked its way to number 1 on the national chart for 2 consecutive months. The song also was awarded Christian Country song of the year in 2017 and won the Diamond Award for song and video of the year as well.

Cline stated in a press conference that “I feel that I need to use the talent that God has given me to reach a world that most people today forget about, a world that needs good news and encouragement. We are use to gathering at church and giving encouragement, inspiration, and the message of the gospel to the believers, but we often forget about the individuals outside of church that needs to hear the good news too.” Cline continued with “I feel that God is calling me to share humor, inspiration, and of course the message of hope in Christ to people that need it the most, the unbeliever.” With this being said, Cline has focused his music on not only the church, but those who would never set foot in the churchouse, the ones that need the message of Christ but is often forgotten about.

When attending an event with Shellem Cline, the audience will receive laughter, encouragement, and inspirational stories that will show them the message that he is trying to portray. With funny songs that talk about everyday life, to inspirational tunes that inspire an individual to be a better person, to the classic gospel songs, Shellem Cline can bring a message that is sure to touch lives. His unique ways of catching the attention of audiences all across the country has made him more than just an artist. Whether a festival, campground, church or other special events, Shellem’s number 1 goal is to use laughter, music, inspiration and testimonies to reach the lost for Jesus Christ!

“This magic duel was full of surprises and amazingly fascinating – from card tricks to disappearing acts to flames, there was never a dull moment. The talented magicians involved and humored the audience every step of the way!” – Yelp Review

When my friends said they had tickets to this I thought it was kind of a strange joke, but this was the most incredible show I’ve ever been to. The magic was incredible and the two magicians were actually funny, especially when they went off-script. – Google Review

Guatemala is the heart of the Maya world, home to one of the world’s founding civilizations, twenty-four indigenous languages, a wild and dramatic landscape, incredible biodiversity and a fascinating cultural menagerie of customs and traditions.

This beautiful country and her resilient people have struggled to emerge from the shadows of a devastating earthquake and long and violent civil war. The fallout from these tragedies has compelled many to leave their homes and travel north in search of a different life.

This carefully crafted film provides an insightful, heartfelt foundation for understanding the country, its culture and the people who are worth getting to know, especially in an era when the cause and effect of migration is so hotly contested.

Blues Away with Kaye” Quilt Retreat

February 16, 17, 18, 2023

Kaye is excited to return to the Alleghany Highlands and The Historic Masonic Theatre to share her skills, techniques and all new lessons with you.

Internationally known quilt maker, author, fabric designer and teacher and host of the popular “Patchwork Staycation” online classes, Kaye returns to teach the methods for “REMEMBER ME” (82”x 98”) quilt along with many additional techniques, lectures and demos. This hands-on retreat is limited to 50 students, so register early! Registration includes pattern, morning & afternoon breaks, continental breakfasts, lunches & dinners and is open to beginning, intermediate & advanced quilters.

EARLY BIRD REGISTRATION: $275 NOW THROUGH 8/1/2022. 50% NON-REFUNDABLE DEPOSITS REQUIRED.
REGULAR REGISTRATION: $300 FROM 9/1/2022 TO 02/15/2023, NON-REFUNDABLE.
($2.50 Restoration Fee/$2.50 Ticket Fee added at checkout)

A Kaye England “Quilt Winter Blues Away” Facebook page, monitored by Kaye, will be set up in September 2022 to share information about the Retreat, all questions on fabric, supplies, agenda, and extra-activities will be discussed with Kaye. Informational emails will also be sent to all registrants.

The heart of “Remember Me” is the stunning center radiating star block executed in four different fabric choices. The remaining anchor blocks are tones of those four with some liberty in fabric choices. The quilt has a very busy English style coloring but could be accomplished in any color palette. Variation on a theme is encouraged with all types of options available. This project is suitable for all skill levels.

Seven pieced blocks (four of each) are the anchor blocks, set on point in an organized pattern. Boundless opportunities for creative differences in positioning the blocks, choosing which blocks to use and selection of types of blocks will be covered.

The class will offer a variety of projects utilizing the block choices for those that choose to make a different quilt.

Methods of Piecing. Piecing techniques using specialty rulers of any brand, plus traditional methods for those that choose not to use rulers will be taught. The entire quilt is accuquilt friendly. Focus will be on executing the more complicated blocks in class.

Each of the seven anchor blocks could easily be their own standalone quilt, mixed in countless design choices for beautiful results. Daily inspirations will be shared to tease your “Inner Designer”.

A sewing machine in good working order is required. Rental machines will be available from the local quilt store for $25.00. Supply lists will be provided in the fall. Additional demos and evening sessions are part of the Retreat. Registration fee also covers a Friday evening performance of “Forever Simon & Garfunkel” performed on the stage of The Historic Masonic Theatre
