Goings On About Town

It is a busy time, everything, it seems, gets jammed into May. Tonight at 6:30 is the K-4 spring concert in the elementary school gym. The littlest musicians have been practicing since Christmas, and I hear that there will be lots of drumming. How fun is that? Plan on arriving early to see the all school art show, the exhibit is hung throughout the school and is up until May 13th. Also, the Haines Visitor Center presents a "Night for Tourism" from 6-9 at the Bald Eagle Foundation and the Gold Rush Alaska stars will be there. Jack and Todd and the guys are back for another season.  It is mainly a social and networking event that will highlight tours and activities and feature food and drink. (Wine and beer will be for sale.) There is a movie at the museum called "The Story of Stuff"  at 7pm, with a discussion to follow. (No doubt it will inspire you to de-acquisition your extra treasures.) While you are there check out Tamsen Cassidy and Joe Parnell's  felt art exhibit. If you are politically minded, there is an Alaska Pipeline Project community meeting at the assembly chambers at 6:30, too. Mark your calendar for a lot of theater this weekend, those talented high school drama and debate students present a variety show, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" Friday night at 6:30 in the elementary school gym, and on Sunday at 3pm and Monday at 7pm the high school drama class will perform  "The Pink Panther Strikes Again" in the Chilkat Center Theater. It is National Bike Month, and Haines has made May local bicycle month, so get out and ride, and remember to register for the Kluane to Chilkat relay early (cheaper) registration closes May 13. The race is June 18. For more info go to www.kcibr.org
