Cropper Day next week

The Cropper Ruritan Club will host Cropper Day on Sept. 21, featuring a parade at 10 a.m., a car cruise-in an antique tractor display, concessions, entertainment, and games (for the children) throughout the day.

There will be a pedal tractor pull for the children with no charge to enter and trophies given. The event will also include a live auction, bake sale and many vendors.


‘Christmas Carol’ auditions

Auditions for Shelby County Community Theatre's production of A Christmas Carol, adapted by Michael Paller from the story by Charles Dickens, are at 7 p.m. Sept. 23-24. Parts are available for actors of all ages. Auditioners should be prepared to do cold readings from the script and sing a Christmas carol of their choice.

Performance dates are Nov. 29-30 and Dec. 1, 6, 7 and 8. The play is directed by Craig Highley.

For more information, call 502-633-0222.


Acclaimed author to visit library

You can spend an evening at the Shelby County Public Library with James Markert, author of A White Wind Blew, an historical novel that draws from his youth in Louisville.

Markert grew up in the shadow of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium, a building with a reputation as one of the most haunted places on earth, perhaps because more than 50,000 patients are said to have died there at the height of the tuberculosis epidemic in the early 1900s.

The session is 6 to 7 p.m. on Oct. 10 at 309 8th St. in Shelbyville. Registration is requested for seating purposes. For more information, contact 633-3803, ext. 11, or marketing@scplibrary.net.
