Richard M. Nixon by Elizabeth Drew

Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.

Delvena Theater presents A Cup of Tea
6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

During the WWII London Blitz, there was no toilet paper, flour, yeast, and everything was shut down.  An upper class British woman in her 70s (Mrs. Henderson) bravely, hilariously, keeps one little theater alive by doing an oh-so tasteful unclothed review for the boys nightly while the bombings shook the stage.  A new friend - eccentric funny lady - Margaret Rutherford (Miss Marple), comes to visit and discusses how she longs to marry her sweetheart. With a lot of heart and humor, Mrs. Henderson attempts to help the off-kilter Margaret make her dreams come true, proving that all you really need in life is a lot of laughter and a good friend!

Join us as we read through the presidents of the United States!
The idea is to not only learn a few things, but to get a deeper understanding the role the presidency has played in this nation's history!
In the midst of a recent discussion, we came to the realization that our knowledge of much of American history was wanting. We decided to undertake a journey through the American presidency from beginning to end starting with George Washington, reading a biography of each president in the order they served. The hope is that this will acquaint us with not only each President, but also the history of the time in which they lived and died.
