5. LOOK AT IT THIS WAY NOV. 9
Look at It This Way", planned for the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium will take place on Friday Nov. 9 at 7 PM. A recent news article had the date as Nov. 10.
Enjoy the wonderful comedic skits created by Proctorsville part time residents Stan and Jane Hart. Last year they played to a full house at the auditorium and, given the warm (and hilarious) reception their material received last year, we know that the comedies, performed by area thespians, will provide a welcome relief from the worries of "Sandy" and the constant political ads of the forthcoming election.
Go to www.fola.us to learn more about the fun evening that awaits you on Friday. Nov. 9, 7 PM at the Ludlow Town Hall Auditorium or call 802-228-7239.
