Twist and Shout
If you’re looking for something family-oriented to do during this Holiday season, head out to Kennedy Lake and enjoy Sertoma’s annual Lights at Kennedy. They’ve changed things a bit- and extended the days to include the first three weekends in December, Friday night through Sunday night- from the 3rd of December until the 19th. With all money raised from the event going to the ‘Backpack Buddies’ program, Twist & Shout couldn’t think of a better way to spend an evening this month. Make plans now to attend!

(And don’t miss the Winter Festival- also at Kennedy on the 10th and 11th!) Read more inside.

Just a reminder, that this Sunday, December 5th is the Symphony’s Holiday concert, and Yule Walk. There are four great houses to tour, as well as some wonderful music to enjoy!

On December 12th there will be a Christmas Open House at the Ringland-Smeltzer Home from 2 to 5 pm. They’ve been doing some extensive decorating at the house, and are opening some ‘never-seen-before’ areas. Sounds like a fascinating day!

Don’t miss Hawkeye Community Theatre’s play The Princess and the Moon. December 16th - 18th.

"Twist & Shout is very excited to add writer Bill McIntyre to our list of distingished freelance writers and columnists. Bill promises to write about the music of the 'Boomer' era, roughly between 1963 and 1975. All of us at "Twist & Shout" know it's going to be a great fit! Welcome Bill!

It’s time once again to introduce our annual Historic Photo Calendar; which is brought to you courtesy of the Webster County Historical Society, and many great area advertisers. (Along with lots of super advice from resident historical guru, Roger Natte!)
