Join us Tuesday for free ice cream --- and drama

Hope you can join us Tuesday evening for the Lucas County Historical Society's annual ice cream social featuring --- ice cream, of course --- and the Chariton Valley Players, who have worked up an original production focused on Lucas County history.

The photo here is from last year's production, a melodrama presented in conjunction with Peanut Day events. I'll find out more about this year's while sitting in on a rehearsal this evening.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. tomorrow and all of the buildings and the gardens on campus will remain open for tours until 7 p.m. Ice cream and ice water will be served in the Pioneer Barn from 6 until 7 p.m.

The players will take the stage on the patio at 7 p.m.

Everything is free, but the donation jar will be out and all contributions dropped into it will go to the players, who work very hard all year to keep Lucas County entertained. So bring a couple of bucks along, too --- please.

Remember, too, that the museum is open from 1 until 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday until Oct. 1, when our next event --- Harvest Festival --- will be held. Admission is free and Kathleen and our crew of volunteers would be delighted to show you around.
