Please plan to eat with us on Saturday at the Historical Performance Showcase Festival!

All the food is prepared and served by volunteers with the North Lyon County Veterans Memorial Project. If you haven't been to the site in Bushong - you might want to plan a short drive west of Admire to see it.

Breakfast Burritos and coffee in the morning (freewill donation please). Sloppy Joes for lunch. Pulled pork for dinner.

Also, it will be hard to pass by the Rainbow Ice Company's bright truck without treating yourself to a freshly made something! 100% women owned, 100% veteran owned company and Rainbow Ice will be donating profits towards next year's Showcase Festival! Win/win!

Dr. Joyce Thierer will be in attendance, of course. Thierer founded the Ride into History historical performance touring troupe in 1989 with her signature performance of Calamity Jane.

Happy Flag Day! The Continental Congress issued a resolution on the basic design for a flag on this day in 1777. Of course, the stars on the "Stars and Stripes" have changed over the years, but the flag has been inspiring patriotic Americans for generations.

A small collection, processed as part of an NHPRC grant to Michigan's Clements Library, contains a few dozen items from Samuel Francis Smith, who composed the lyrics for "My Country, 'Tis of Thee" ("America"), set to the music for "God Save the Queen." The song was first performed on July 4, 1831 by a children's choir in Boston.

Included in the collection are many items pertain to the song, such as holograph copies of the lyrics signed by the author and a facsimile of its first printed version. Other items include handwritten copies of the poem "The Eve of Decoration Day" and the hymn "The Morning Light is Breaking."
