District Governor Visits Louisa Rotary
Last August , the Louisa County Rotary Club was visited by Horace McCormack, the District Governor for District 7610, which includes Louisa County. Mr. McCormack met first with the club’s officers to receive reports about the club’s past programs and about its goals for the future. During that meeting, he offered helpful suggestions about improving the club and attracting new members. Later, at the general club’s dinner meeting, he spoke about the goals of Rotary International and the Louisa club’s role in achieving those goals.
Louisa’s Rotary Club again brings the Barter Players to town.
The Famed Barter Players, the State Theatre of the Commonwealth of Virginia, are coming to Louisa County. On Friday, March 27th the Players will present "Anne of Green Gables."
The performance, sponsored by the Louisa County Rotary Club and underwritten by the Rotary Club and several other Louisa County businesses and residents, will begin at 7:30 pm in the Louisa Arts Center.
Prior to the performance, at 6:00 pm, the Rotary Club and the Louisa Arts Center will host a pre-theater wine and cheese reception and an Art Show Gallery opening featuring the works of various artists on the theme "Shadows and Reflections". Following the performance there will be a dessert social with the Barter Players.
Marilla Cuthbert and her brother Matthew are determined to adopt an orphan boy to help them run Green Gables, their farm on beautiful Price Edward Island. But their well-ordered lives take a surprising and hilarious twist when the boy they hoped for turns out to be a redheaded slip-of-a-girl named Anne Shirley, whose wild imagination leads her into countless scrapes, as well as a place in our hearts forever. Come join Anne and her friends in this timeless coming-of-age favorite.
