It’s not too soon to get those plant starts going. In fact now is the BEST time to get them started!

Email Kathleen at gagwitt@gmail.com. Questions about how you can help with the garden fair? Email laura@thetroxels.net. Ideas about vendors and expanding on the Garden Fair and Community Day?

Drama Club Production: Jack and the Three Sillies

March 7, 2015
Online ticket sales are now open for the Lewis Elementary School production of Jack and the Three Sillies at tinyurl.com/lewisplay2015 The play is set for Thursday, March 19 and Friday, March 20. Both shows start at 6:30 p.m. Please contact the school office if financial assistance is needed. Lewis productions routinely sell out in advance, so get your tickets while you can!

This comedy/folktale centers around Jack, a smart but simple country man, who is about to marry a wealthy farmer’s only daughter, Buttons.  

When he realizes just how silly Buttons and her parents are, he vows to leave and never return unless he meets three sillies “more silly than you three sillies.”  As he travels about the country, he meets an old woman trying to capture sunlight in boxes to brighten the inside of her windowless house; a family of milkmaids who have trouble counting to six; newlyweds with feuding in-laws; a man who spends hours each day trying to put on his pants; and numerous silly people who make Buttons and her family seem almost intelligent.
