The community is invited to once again take part in the wild and crazy—and this year, a bit scary—Mush for a Cure. The theme for the 8th annual event’s kickoff on Friday, March 7 is “Pink Zombie Party” which includes the “Bald, Brave and Beautiful” competition. The merriment continues on Saturday, March 8 with pink-clad people and dogs taking to the trail for a fun run that benefits the National Breast Cancer Foundation.
Saturday’s events take place on Gunflint Lake in front of Gunflint Pines Resort beginning at 8 a.m. with a pancake breakfast open to all. The long course, which at press time had 21 participants signed up, begins there with an entertaining sourdough start at 12 p.m. The short course, with 11 racers at press time, including some skijoring teams finishes there, so there is action all day.
The Cook County Ridge Riders snowmobile club will be grilling food and there will be other activities throughout the day. And in case of inclement weather, a big tent will be set up on the lake.
The highly successful fundraiser has brought in $186,500 for the National Breast Cancer Foundation in its eight years. One of the organizers, Sue Prom of Voyageur Canoe Outfitters encourages everyone to join the fun. Prom said, “This is not a race where one team wins. It's an event where everyone wins by raising money for the National Breast Cancer Foundation.”
The Grand Marais Playhouse pleased to present the community youth play "Our Town" by Thornton Wilder, which runs for one weekend only, March 6 - 9. Thursday - Saturday, 7 p.m. and Sunday at 2 p.m. Tickets are $10 adults and $5 students. Sunday, March 9 is donation day (pay what you can for your ticket).
This timeless drama of life in the mythical village of Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, has become an American classic with universal appeal. Thornton Wilder's most frequently performed play, "Our Town" appeared on Broadway in 1938 to wide acclaim, and won the Pulitzer Prize. From the very beginning, "Our Town" has been produced in amateur and professional theatres around the world.
Wilder offers a couple of chairs on a bare stage as the backdrop for an exploration of the universal human experience. The simple story of a love affair is constantly rediscovered because it asks timeless questions about the meaning of love, life and death. In the final moments of the play, the recently deceased Emily is granted the opportunity to revisit one day in her life, only to discover that she never fully appreciated all she possessed until she lost it. "Oh, earth, you're too wonderful for anybody to realize you," she says as she takes her place among the dead.
Don’t miss this play with a talented intergenerational cast of local performers.
