Smokin’ Hot Love Songs, an afternoon of the most romantic love songs from opera and musical theatre, will be presented by the husband-and-wife duo of La Serenata on Sunday, February 6, 2022, at 3:00 p.m. at the Plymouth County Historical Museum. Dr. Harry Dunstan, tenor, and Kay Krekow, soprano, have thrilled thousands with the power, passion, and opulence of their singing—from Presidents and Popes to The Kennedy Center and The Orioles Baseball Park at Camden Yards—and are co-creators of the internationally acclaimed American Center for Puccini Studies and the local Fiddle Creek Arts Group. This dynamic duo will help set the stage for your most romantic Valentine’s Day ever. The concert is Free and open to the public…but you might want to bring along the fire extinguisher! Reception to follow. More information can be found on Facebook at Fiddle Creek Arts Group.
Readings at the Ranch - Come for Pizza, Stay for Poetry!

Readers of all ages are invited to share a favorite poem, a short story, the verse of a hymn or scripture, a song, a joke. The community is encouraged to bring favorite works about LOVE, in all its many aspects. The atmosphere is come-and-go casual and encouragement only. The event is free and open to the community. No reservations are required. Readers may purchase their supper and join the event in the Party Room or can just join in the reading.
“Readings at the Ranch” will occur every second Monday of the month.
