W.H. Stark House Reopens for Tours

The opening of The W.H. Stark House following a major restoration was celebrated with a ribbon-cutting on Friday . The home experienced a third-floor water leak in 2019. After amazing team efforts, a new, beautifully painted ceiling, and so much more, they have now reopened for 2020.

The W.H. Stark House is excited to announce 2nd Friday & Saturday Monthly Tours for the 2020 season. Tours include all three floors of the main House, feature two recently restored rooms, and, as always, display original family furnishings, personal effects, and decorative arts.

Tours can accommodate a maximum of 7 people. Participants must be at least 6 years old and able to walk up and down 44 steps to take a house tour. For safety reasons, parents may not carry infants or younger children on the tour.

Lutcher Theater Presents Farewell Angelina in Acclaimed Women & Wine Tour
The Lutcher Theater presents Farewell Angelina in their highly acclaimed Women & Wine Tour, Saturday, January 25, 2020, at 7:30 pm. Tickets start at $30 and are available now at www.lutcher.org.
Named among Rolling Stone’s “New Artists You Need To Know” and Roughstockʼs “Ones To Watch” with a tour schedule to prove it, Farewell Angelina has opened shows for the likes of Kenny Chesney, Old Dominion, Jake Owen, Billy Currington and Maroon 5. After hearing the undeniable magic of their voices together, the band couldn’t wait to take their show on the road. “This project was fully funded by our fans! We co-produced, something that truly captured our musical sisterhood while working alongside the best musicians and engineers in the business. Thankful and excited to bring this music on the Women & Wine Tour.”
Farewell Angelina’s chemistry lives in watching each other shine, and most of all, creating moments every night with the Country Music fans they love so much. The relationship they share with their fans won them the fan-voted “Hot Seat” spot of the Taste of Country 2017 “RISERS” Program by over 20,000 votes. “Wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash deft playing…into one sonic knockout punch,”  says Rolling Stone.
About Farewell Angelina
Named after a haunting Bob Dylan song, Farewell Angelina, the female country group impresses with four powerhouse vocalists, dynamic songwriters, and accomplished multi-instrumentalists. A band of longtime friends, Nicole Witt, Andrea Young, Lisa Torres, and Ashley Gearing all met pursuing their dreams in Nashville, TN. Each deeply respected and admired one another while they were building successful solo careers, touring and recording with top artists, and writing songs for some of Country Music’s biggest hitmakers. Their stellar blend of heart-stopping harmonies over blazing double guitars has earned soaring praise across the board. Roughstock praised them as a “Superstar Act… with Killer Songs;” Rolling Stone “Wickedly smart songwriting delivered with a healthy dash deft playing… into one sonic knockout punch.”

Orange Lions Club Selected For Community Art Project

The Orange Lions Club was recently provided with a HOT grant from the county to work on a community art project. They have been working on creating a design that would not only share about our area, but also create a unique piece of art that would be displayed in our community.

They will finalize the plans in the coming months for a permanent place for this design to be displayed. It may be popping up in other areas as well! The Orange Lions Club sincerely appreciates the opportunity to receive funds to make this project a reality.
