H’burg Happenings – Mid & Late December

Brent Finnegan -- December 12th, 2006

I’m working on turning H’burg Happenings into a sidebar list of events. I would already have it operational if I didn’t suck at the Internet.

RECENTLY:

Governor Kaine “awarded” a $10k grant to H’burg to help fight gangs.

Myron Rhodes asked city council member Carolyn Frank to run against Matt Lohr next year.

MACRoCk is in financial trouble this year (more so than in previous years). Will it still happen in April? The organizers are still optimistic.

UPCOMING EVENTS:

Dec 14: Saffire: The Uppity Blues Women at the Court Square Theater.

Also on the 14th: Bring any old photos you have of Harrisonburg to the MRL between 5 & 8.

Saturday the 16: NBA Live (PS2) tournament at the Gilkerson Center. Email Erik Dart for more info.

Also on the 16th: Show at Captain Tees at 7pm.

Dec 22: Theater IV presents The Shoemaker and the Christmas Elves at the HHS auditorium. 4 & 7pm.

Dec 27: Another show at Captain Tees at 7pm.

    Having been around the Macrock committee for the majority of the planning last year, I’m surprised that they have accumulated more debt. They seemed very organized with their budget and their decisions.

    Uppity Blues Women — if you’ve never heard of these three, you’re missing out. Sooo funny.

  3. David Troyer says:

    I am going to go ahead and put in a plug for Scott Christopher Murray at First Night Harrisonburg. Go hear him. He is an amazing local singer/songwriter with an unbeatable storytelling ability.
