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, February 26th the Players will present "A Wrinkle in Time."
On a dark and stormy night, the eccentric Mrs. Whatsit arrives at the home of Meg Murray, a tomboy who doesn’t fit in at her high school. Meg’s scientist father vanished more than two years ago under mysterious circumstances.
With the aide of Mrs. Whatsit and her friends, Meg and her gifted brother, Charles Wallace, are transported through time and space on a mission to rescue their father from frightening forces that hold him prisoner on another planet. John Glore’s wildly theatrical adaptation brings this acclaimed story magically to life.
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 will host a pre-theater wine and cheese reception in the Purcell Art Gallery. After the performance, there will be a dessert social with the Barter Players.
This is the thirteenth year the Rotary Club has brought the Barter Players to Louisa County to offer our elementary and High School students an opportunity to experience live theatre.
