Gratitude” for the public to view our new auditorium. What a great place to appreciate the Arts and to appreciate the talent we have in our community as well as in our schools.

Also, through your generosity, we were able to raise over $670 for the Pelican Rapids Food Shelf and collect ten bags of needed food. Your sharing and caring spirits extends to those who will also be “Grateful” for your donations.

Special thanks to all who performed including Band of Faith, Laura Hagen, Bob Kohler, Linda Grefsrud, Randy Nubson, Joyful Noise, Lee Brenna, Casey Perrin, Amanda Backstrom, Sean Fitzsimmons, Lori Jondahl, Lori Paakh, Journey of Faith, Taylor Poach, Paul Restad, Susan Johnson, Tia Thysell, and the Heart O’ Lakes Harmony Men’s a Capella Chorus for your WONDERFUL performances.

I hope you enjoyed your chance to perform on the new stage and will come back for many other entertainment possibilities.
