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 28th the Players will present Laura Ingalls Wilder’s “Little House on the Prairie.”

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 8:00 in the Louisa Arts Center.

Prior to the performance at 6:00pm, 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  C. Page Highfill. Following the performance there will be a dessert social with the Barter Players.

“Little House on the Prairie” follows the Ingalls family as they leave the Big Woods of Wisconsin and head west to seek adventure and a new way of life in Indian Territory.

This is the eleventh year the Rotary Club has brought the Barter Players to Louisa County to offer our elementary and High School students and opportunity to experience live theatre. Earlier that day the fourth grade students in our elementary schools will be treated to a performance of Hans Christen Andersen’s fun and timeless play, “The Emperor’s New Clothes” and our High School students will see a performance of William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.”
