Don't say there's nothing to do

January 21, 2008 - Diane Speer
I just finished up a few minutes ago putting together the Community Calendar of Events listing for Tuesday’s Lifestyles page. Though it’s more than a little tedious pulling all the events and photos together into a calendar format, the newspaper has received a fair amount of positive response back on how helpful the calendar is to readers.

As I was doing Tuesday’s page, I was struck again for the umpteenth time by just how much Alpena has to offer in the way of arts activities. On Tuesday, there’s a new art class being taught by local artist Mark Beins at the Besser Museum. For Wednesday, the Association of Lifelong Learners at Alpena Community College is offering an interesting program about a thief who managed to steal 27,000 books from libraries all around the country. Come Thursday, you can choose between a new play at Thunder Bay Theatre (“The Politics of Murder”) or the first showing in a film series at ACC (“Johnny Got His Gun”). On Friday, Art in the Loft is hosting a Soup’s On event where bowls created with an artistic flair will be put up for auction as a fund-raiser. And finally, on Saturday, there’s a public reception for a new exhibit (all about The Alpena News) opening at the Besser Museum and a Shades of Blue concert at the Thunder Bay Recreation Center hosted by Truth North Radio.

The above list was by no means meant to be exhaustive. See tomorrow’s newspaper for a more complete one. Rather, the list was intended to back up my initial point that there’s a whole lot going on in this community in the way of arts activities in the dead of winter. From where I sit, we are very fortunate indeed!
