SATURDAY April 30 Plant Exchange

The Victorian Day 
planning  committee wants something from your yard!!

It's a Plant Exchange!

Saturday, April 3
Bridge Street Plaza

Are you looking for some different or new plants for your yard?  Are your existing flower beds taking over your yard?  Thin them out and share them with us. We'll trade you for some you don't already have or just take ones you no longer want!

- bulbs (rhizomes, corms, etc.), seedlings or seeds
- put them in a container and identify and label the plants
- give info about the plant: conditions in which they grow best acidic soil, shade or full sun and how to plant them

If you’re not sure, bring them anyway!

The swap will be from 10 am until 5 pm; but the earlier in the day you bring your plants the better!

 “An Evening with the Madrigals”
Grand Ledge Opera House 
May 10, 2016
The Grand Ledge High School Madrigal Singers will be presenting their program of music at the Grand Ledge Opera House at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 10th.  The performance is sponsored by the Friends of the Opera House who appreciate your support.
The madrigal singers are a group of Grand Ledge High School students who love music and have been singing for most of their Junior and Senior High School years in various singing groups.  The Madrigals are an auditioned choir, and along with being the top group at the high school, they are considered to be one of the top ensembles in the area. They sang at the prestigious Michigan Music Conference in Grand Rapids in the past when there were only four choirs for the entire state invited to sing. They also performed at the beautiful Fountain Street Church and had a wonderful experience.
The Madrigals are conducted by Sheri Tulloch. At Grand Ledge High School she directs seven choirs, five of which meet during school and two that meet after school.  She also directs the all-school musicals each year.
The program will include classical as well as contemporary selections that should satisfy the musical tastes of most people that enjoy a cappella singing. Performances will also include several solos.  The program will be held in the Grand Hall of the historic Opera House which has excellent acoustics.
The Grand Ledge Opera House is located in downtown Grand Ledge at the corner of Bridge & River Street alongside the Grand River.  Tickets are $8 for Adults & $6 for Students. Tickets are available in Grand Ledge at MacDowell’s Fireplace & Flower Shop, ACE Hardware and the Grand Ledge Opera House.
