Two programs were presented to the Chester Arbor of the Gleaner Life Insurance Society when they met first at the Cardington Market for dinner before crossing the street to the Morrow County Little Theatre on April 4.
Joey Powell, president of the Little Theatre Board, explained the history of the theatre and its new home in Cardington.
The other presentation was by Phylis Miller, with the Morrow County Historical Society, who described their new home at 17 West High Street in Mount Gilead. She described the displays in the building which include local pottery, an HPM display, etc. She explained that the society is very grateful for the opportunity to have this facility for their use.
Following these presentations, Linda Ruehrmund, president of the Gleaners Society, presented checks from the Society to Powell and Miller for their programs.
The Gleaners will sponsor a free movie, “Jungle Book,” at the Capitol Theater in Mt Gilead on April 30. The movie will begin at 2 p.m.
As part of ‘Join Hands Day’, the Gleaners will help the Mt Gilead Park Avenue students beautify the entrance to the school and they will assist the Humane Society with their annual dog walk.
A tour of the Little Theatre followed the meeting and the group was given a preview of “Steel Magnolias.”
