Just a note to say I had been toying with the thought of going to see the upcoming local performance of “It’s A Wonderful Life,” but something in last week’s News-Democrat article made the decision for me.
I now have plans to be there, even if there is a standing-room only crowd and I have to stand the entire time.
In the article, Deborah Garrett said that due to the economy, grant funding sources for the Historical Society/Masterson House were drying up and the play was a fund-raiser to help offset this. So I say, “How commendable.”
Instead of bewailing the matter, the Port William Historical Society and others in the community looked for a positive and upbeat solution. Sounds like something George Bailey, himself, would have done. Such endeavors have the potential to strengthen communities and uplift people.
Hats off to all of you, and maybe next year you’ll do a performance of “Mr. Smith Goes to Washington”!
