Some of the performers’ tunes will take you back to 1861. Barbara Hughes, as an Eastern Jackson County settler 150 years ago, will tell about the “happenings”. Blue Springs Councilman Grant Bowerman as MC will display his since of humor while keeping the program moving. Other performers are former Mayor and Magician Steve Steiner and the City Councilmen’s skit, still to be disclosed, will keep you laughing. It has not been disclosed if Scarlet or Jose or some other dancer will make an appearance. Songs by guitarists, fiddlers, and vocalists will be reminiscent of the War Between the States. And, can you believe a Civil War Rap song? Of course, ELVIS will reappear and yes, when you listen to him sing, you will think the “real” Elvis really did drop by. Other talent may still apply. David Cook put Blue Springs on the map with his singing ability. Now, the public has the opportunity to hear other Blue Springs entertainers on the same stage, some for the first time.
There will be a silent auction held for the benefit of Save Our Depot. The money will be used to reach the $20,000.000 it takes to move the depot before July 29, 2012.
The Blue Springs Historical Society will celebrate their 35th birthday by honoring the charter members. Without their vision and hard work there would be no museum in the 1906 home of Morgan and Melvin Dillingham, builders, and second owner Narra Lewis Birthday cake will be served.
The potato bar and a variety of salads will be cooked by the Eastern Star ladies. The meal and entertainment for one person is $18.00 and for two people $35.00.
