Henning fall musical drops curtain Friday

The finishing touches are being put on the Henning High School fall musical. The musical will officially open on Friday night with encore performances set for Saturday night and Sunday afternoon.

This year’s musical is an adaptation of the 1957 Broadway classic “The Music Man.” The musical is based on a story by Meredith Wilson and Franklin Lacey about a con man named Harold Hill. When he comes to town, Hill hopes to trick the town into buying instruments and uniforms for a new band. Harold is no musician, however, and plans to skip town without giving any music lessons. While some in the town believe his enthusiasm, others aren’t so sure.

EOT 4-H hosts awards program

Area youth and adults were recognized for their service and achievements at the annual East Otter Tail County 4-H Recognition and Awards Program on Sunday, Oct. 29 and was held at the New York Mills Extension Office.
