On Feb. 7 and 8 (Friday and Saturday evenings), The Celtic Band Jamboree will be held at The Sertoma Youth Ranch. Several Celtic Bands will be performing, including Marcille Wallis  and Friends. 

We asked Marcille Wallis and Matt Miller (fellow band member) a few questions to learn more about them, their music careers and their upcoming performance in Brooksville!

As you may have seen in our previous issue, during Brooksville’s Founders Week to celebrate the 160th Anniversary of the town, a number of wonderful events took place, including the Historic Mural Tour, which was led by Susan Rupe.

After we viewed the murals which depict the fire and police departments, the next mural on the tour Saturday Stroll painted in 2001, located on the A.L. Covell building at East Liberty Street and South Brooksville Ave. The mural was sponsored by James and Anna Covell, and designed and painted by Maurea Sleesman.

Theatre Review: "I do, I do"

Local actors Dorothy Ferguson and Keith Surplus play Agnes and Michael Snow in "I do, I do"

“Sometimes in the mornin' when shadows are deep
I lie here beside you just watching you sleep
And sometimes I whisper what I'm thinking of
My cup runneth over with love

Sometimes in the evening when you do not see
I study the small things you do constantly
I memorize moments that I'm fondest of
My cup runneth over with love”
