Just a quick update with the fall HPCAC Happenings for you to check out!
October 24th we had a beverage booth at the Hawkinsville Harvest Festival. Commerce Street was flooded with people, food, music, arts & crafts, and booths by local and out of town businesses. Skeeterz Rock band led the street party and the Chamber opened up the first Chamber of Horrors. The Arts Council closed out the night with a showing of Night of the Living Dead. Audience members were both startled and excited when the undead came and strolled through the auditorium during the movie and there were positive reviews and requests for similar events or movies.
Bright Star Touring Theater put together an amazing show for the Pulaski County Kindergarten through Middle School. With two plays performed in three showings, the topics addressed were bullying both in every day life as well as online. The two member cast had teachers and students alike rolling in laughter. During one performance they even brought students and a teacher up on stage to help out!
One Purpose led a Gospel Sing free to the public on November 7th. Barbecue plates were sold prior to the event outdoors and the show started at 2 and ran all afternoon. The audience spent the entire afternoon worshiping the Lord with song and even a little dance.
On November 12th, Net Ventures Marketing brought Buddy Jewell to town! He performed songs old and new including his hits “Help Pour Out the Rain” and “Sweet Southern Comfort.” He even brought up a sweet girl on her sixth birthday right before singing “Lacy’s Song”, or “Help Pout Out the Rain.”
This Sunday, December 6th, Middle Georgia Concert Band came and put together a wonderful Christmas Concert for people of all ages. Conducted by Col. L Bryan Shelburne, Jr,. retired leader of the U.s. Army band from Washington D.C. and moderated by Band President Dick Malone, the band performed classical Christmas numbers and ended the night with a Christmas Sing-A-Long for the whole crowd. They even took a break to hand out candy for the children!
