Side Trips

What was I thinking Saturday? The

forecast my daughter shared with

me said 80 percent chance of rain,

and Friday evening’s little shower had certainly

already set the

tone for more to come.

Yet, I was optimistic

and set off for Risefest

(the Christian music

festival that takes

place less than a mile

from my home in

Sheldon) wearing my

(nearly) new Birks.

MYRNA

WAGNER

I had visions of

stretching my legs

out in front of my

camp chair and catching

a few rays. Wearing

socks and tennis shows would leave

me with white feet, and walking through

hay stubble with flip-flops leads to painful

scratches and scrapes. Birkenstocks were

the perfect solution. Easy to walk in. Comfortable

for extended periods of time. Thick

soles to keep away the prickly hay.

All was well until the downpour.

We were fortunate and waited out the

deluge in the safety of a steel shed on the

property adjacent the festival grounds.

Once the all-clear was issued, I tip-toed my

way around several puddles and managed

to stay relatively dry. The mud crept up the

cork soles of my sandals, but didn’t ooze

over the edge.

But for the final two bands of the night

— Crowder and Toby Mac — I decided to

get the up-close experience right next to the

stage. Packed in with dozens of teenagers,

the energy level and enthusiasm were contagious.

Dancing in the mud and wet grass?

Not so great.

Once home I took a scraper, then a big

brush, to my Birks. Bottoms, sides, tops,

cork, leather — every inch of them had to

be scrubbed.

Right now they are propped above an air

vent to dry. The jury is still out on whether

they survived.

Ann Bishop McGregor

brings pastel work to

Arts on Grand

There is beauty all around. It’s in

the people and places we see every

day. It’s something artist Ann

Bishop McGregor recognizes and is

bringing to Arts on Grand in Spencer.

The exhibit, “Beauty in the Ordinary,”

will be on display from June

20-July 29 and features McGregor’s

pastel work covering a range of subjects

from landscapes to still lifes,

along with people and animals.

Arts on Grand curator Joanne Schar

is looking forward to the exhibit and

thinks it’s one everyone can enjoy.

“There aren’t as many pastel artists

as there are with other mediums, so

it’s fun to have one here,” Schar said.

“Her still lifes have a sense of humor

and her landscapes are calming images

of Iowa. They’re scenes we’re familiar

with that are fun to see as new

Ann Bishop McGregor currently has a show at Arts on Grand in Spencer.

Her exhibit is entitled “Beauty in the Ordinary.” PHOTOS BY RYLAN HOWE

through an artist’s interpretation.”

McGregor was interested in art since

she was a child and often took classes

and lessons before earning a graphic

design degree from Iowa State University

in Ames.

She’s continued with art classes

throughout her adult life as well. It

was during one of these classes, while

working with oil paints and studying

Old Masters techniques, that she first

began to experiment with pastels.

“The teacher was demonstrating

with pastels, which you work dark to

light like with oils, and that was intriguing

to me,” McGregor said.

So about six years ago, her pastel

work began and McGregor continually

adds new pastels to her collection.

She has become a signature member

of the Iowa Pastel Society, enjoying

all the workshops, classes, shows

and competitions they have to offer.

“It’s been fun to experiment these

past few years. I like the way pastels can

look like oil paintings,” McGregor said.

McGregor’s landscapes focus on

typical Midwestern scenes of farm

fields, ponds, pastures and the like,

many of which come just a short drive

around her rural Charles City acreage.

Her still lifes are a study of pumpkins,

squash and gourds, with a dash

of humor coming from the various

titles and arrangements. They are

also an opportunity for McGregor to

practice the sight-size method where

one places the canvas next to the

subject and continually steps back to

a marked point to observe before stepping

forward to paint or draw.

“It can be a good bit of exercise! And

it’s very accurate,” McGregor said.

Landscapes, still lifes, people,

pets. The beauty in it all can be seen

through McGregor’s eyes during the

next month at Arts on Grand.

“I hope people come away from

the show with an appreciation of the

beauty in the ordinary things around

us. There’s beauty to it all. You just

need to stop and look,” McGregor

said. F

LET FREEDOM RING

Celebrate Independence Day weekend in George

Let freedom ring.

George’s annual Freedom Days

celebration has been going on

for more than a dozen years, and

this year’s event will be held Friday-

Sunday, June 30-July 2.

The Lyon County community’s

event kicks off Friday at 2 p.m. when

the George Museum opens. A pedal

tractor pull and the Miss George and

Little Miss George Pageant will follow

at 6 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., respectively.

Saturday is packed full of activities,

ranging from a 5K fun run/walk,

which drew 150 participants last year,

to a duck race.

The George Museum also will be

open throughout the day, and a parade,

antique tractor pull, games and

inflatables are sure to be a hit as well.

A car show also will be held, and

the event drew more than 100 vehicles

last year.

“We had quite a bit of success,”

said Rob Van Egdom, president of

the George Chamber of Commerce,

“This year, we’re going to start having

awards in a more formal setting.”

A pie auction will be held on Saturday

as a fundraiser for Freedom Days.

“That is always fun, and that’s where

the community really gets behind

what you’re doing,” Van Egdom said.

The band Replay of Sioux City will

perform twice on Saturday, providing

cover songs from the ’60s to today.

A fireworks display will cap off Saturday’s

lineup of events.

“I have only been part of the George

community for three-four years, but

the fireworks display here is amazing,”

Van Egdom said. “The way we

purchase fireworks allows us to put on

a fairly big show.”

The chamber of commerce will host

a Dad’s Belgian Waffles Breakfast on

Sunday, followed by a fishing tournament.

The George Museum also will be

open throughout the day.

Van Egdom is excited to not only

provide entertainment for George

residents, but visitors as well.

“It’s a great family-friendly event,”

he said. F

standards by Tito Puente, Ray Barretto,

Eddie Palmieri, Ismael Miranda,

Mario Bauzá, Poncho Sanchez and

others.

Festival Latino is free to attend, and

there will be plenty of yummy foods

available to purchase.

The event got its start because of a

desire to more richly appreciate the

Latino culture.

“Based on conversations we had

with many of our immigrant neighbors

during an Adult Discipleship

series we sponsored at my church,

American Reformed Church in Orange

City, the leaders of that series decided

that it would be important for

our community to better understand

and celebrate local Latino culture,”

said Harold Heie, the chair of the Festival

Planning Team.

“I then worked through CASA of

Sioux County (Center for Assistance,

Service and Advocacy), which I now

co-direct, to initiate an annual festival

designed to celebrate local Latino culture.”

In an effort to further these efforts,

all of the attendees are invited to wear

traditional clothing from their country

of origin. Prizes are given for the

best outfits.

The festival is going on its sixth

year, and Heie is pleased with how

the event continues to celebrate Latin

cultures and also continues to bring

people of all heritages together.

“My favorite aspect is to see the

marvelous way in which Latino and

caucasian children enjoy numerous

activities together, for it is the bonds

of friendship that they develop with

one another that holds out the greatest

hope for persons of both cultures

to flourish together into the future,”

Heie said. “The purpose of the festival

is to celebrate the riches of local

Latino culture and provide the opportunity

for all local residents to engage

one another over good food, good fun

and good music.” F

History

The idea for Village Northwest

Unlimited was first conceived

in November 1974 when Bob

Hoogeveen, then principal of

Sheldon High School, stopped

to visit a friend, Lamar Esbeck,

who worked at Handicap Village

in Clear Lake.

“That was my introduction to the

disabled,” said Hoogeveen, founding

executive director of the Village.

“I was totally dumbfounded. The

situation of the disabled was foreign

to me until that day.”

The trip to Clear Lake proved to

have a haunting impact on Hoogeveen,

and he was overwhelmed

at his excitement of the possibility

of Sheldon building a similar village.

Celebrate Independence Day

Village Northwest Unlimited has activities for the family

Village Northwest Unlimited’s

annual Independence Day Celebration

has something for

everyone.

“It’s a great, family-friendly event,”

said Samantha Waterstone, events and

volunteer coordinator for the Village.

This year’s event will kick off at

5 p.m. Monday, July 3, with food

booths from Hy-Vee, Pizza Ranch and

Subway in Sheldon and Kelly’s Catering

in Hospers.

A variety of fun will follow at 6

p.m. Carnival games, inflatables, laser

tag, kiddie train rides, a kiddie Ferris

wheel, face painting, an ice cream parlor,

petting zoo, fire truck rides, pony

rides, Mr. Twister, horse-drawn wagon

rides and more are sure to be a hit for

all ages.

“They’ve all done quite well in the

past,” Waterstone said.

At 7 p.m., the Mud Dogs will perform

from a song list of more than

200 tunes, ranging from crowd favorites

like “I Saw Her Standing There” by

the Beatles to Neil Diamond’s “Sweet

Caroline” and more modern day

country songs by Little Big Town and

Jason Aldean.

“We’re really looking forward to

having them,” Waterstone said.

Fireworks will cap off the day’s entertainment

at dusk.

According to Barry Whitsell, president

and CEO of Village Northwest

Unlimited, the Sheldon-based facility

began its Independence Day festivities

more than 30 years ago.

“It started as a celebration amongst

our own residents. They decorated

their bikes and wheelchairs in patriotic

themes, and they would march around

Village Circle,” he said. “It got to be,

‘Let’s shoot off some fireworks,’ and

then, ‘Let’s invite the public,’ so it’s just

expanded and grown over the years.”

According to Waterstone, an average

of about 6,000-7,000 people turn

out for the celebration each year, with

even more showing up for the fireworks

display.

“People are able to participate in

so many different activities, with the

fireworks, with the music group, with

the carnival games, food booths and

inflatables — there’s something for

everybody, really,” she said. “Our

hope is to be able to celebrate with

the community and really share what

the Village is all about and be able to

draw people to our campus.” F

Join a hike to Judd Wildlife Area.

The next installment of the Dickinson

County Nature Center’s

Hike the Wild series takes intrepid explores

to the 236-acre area southwest

of Milford.

It will be a new experience for Bryanna

Kuhlman, environmental education

coordinator at the nature center,

as well.

Kuhlman will go on at least one exploratory

hike herself before leading

the group through the area next Tuesday,

June 27, when those interested

will meet at 9:30 a.m. at the nature

center before venturing out to Judd

Wildlife Area for the hike.

“I’ll go out and explore beforehand

and maybe take our vegetation specialist

along to point out some the

restoriation work he’s been doing as

well as any rare or fun plants growing

in the area,” Kuhlman said.

She can then pass on this information

to the hikers, as well as any other

observations and facts about the local

flora and fauna that come up along

the way.

Still fairly new to the area, Kuhlman

enjoys getting the chance to explore

her new surroundings right alongside

her fellow hikers.

“What I really love is that we get a

core group of people coming back as

well as newcomers each time,” Kuhlman

said. “It’s so much fun to go out

with like-minded and curious people.”

Kuhlman noted that some people

enjoy looking for prairie flowers while

others are more into birding, and

some just enjoy having someone lead

the way in a new place to explore.

“There are a lot of flowers and a

lots of species in general out there.

Blanding’s turtles have been seen out

there,” Kuhlman said. “Overall it’s a

community learning experience and I

hope people find a new place they can

explore or take their families when

they visit. And if they learn some

factoids and can walk away knowing

a little something more than before,

that’s great.”

With a wide swath of meadow, as

well as a prairie stream winding its

way towards the Little Sioux River, the

Judd Wildlife Area will provide plenty

of space for visitors to enjoy as they

explore a new patch of the beautiful

land around the Iowa Great Lakes. F

Expertly written

dialogue key to ‘Plaza’ success

Comedy takes the stage for week two of theatre season

Travel to New York City and the

Plaza Hotel for the second week

of the Okoboji Summer Theatre’s

60 th anniversary season.

The comedy “Plaza Suite” is a classic,

penned by Neil Simon, and coves

a variety of human relationships. OST

delivers the production with grace,

under the expert direction of Bernard

Monroe.

There are three short stories that unfold

on the stage, each taking place in

the same hotel suite and dealing with

human relationships and conflict.

In the first scene, Karen and Sam

Nash, played by Hannah Elliott and

Michael Fisher are celebrating their

23rd or 24th wedding anniversary

(they can’t seem to agree how many

years it has been.)

The two are on completely different

pages, she working to create a romantic

celebration, and him distracted

by his work. The dialogue between

the two is well done, sharp and witty.

Karen uses humor and sarcasm to disguise

deep hurt and suspicion.

Sam finally admits he would like a

“do-over” and his mid-life crisis has

gotten the best of him. He admits to

having an affair with a young woman

from the office.

The scene ends with the wife begging

him to stay despite his indiscretion.

As the curtain closes the audience

is left feeling her heartbreak.

Story number two features high

school sweethearts meeting up after

many years. He is now a famous Hollywood

producer; she is a married

mother of three still living in their

hometown in New Jersey.

Simon’s dialogue is equally clever

and real for story number two.

She is fascinated with his celebrity

status. He is enamored with her innocence.

As their conversation and flirtation

continues, the audience realizes

he isn’t seducing her but they are both

using each other.

Paitra Babb and Dylan Crow feel

genuine and comfortable in their

roles.

The third and final scene is the story

of a frightened bride and her parents.

Stephanie Hockaday and OST favorite

Rob Doyen carry the night. Their line

delivery and frustrations with each

other are hilarious.

Theatre patrons were laughing out

loud on opening night as the craziness

ensued.

Doyen climbing out on the ledge

seven stories up and his tuxedo jacket

ripping up the back were high points

in the hilarity.

The mother’s dismay over her torn

stockings is something women in the

audience can relate to, and every dad

that has ever stressed about the cost

of a wedding will laugh when the father

fusses about the costs of the hors

d’oeuvres and cocktails.

As one might expect, the groom

steps in to save the day, though not in

the thoughtful, loving way one might

have thought.

“Plaza Suite” continues through

Sunday evening and even if you’ve

seen this classic before, is worth seeing

again. Up next week is the comedy

“The Nerd.”

Flea market findings

Three locations hosts annual event flea markets

Fourth of July weekend

Four decades later, Treasure Village’s

flea markets are still going

strong.

According to Garth Neisess, the offering

began around 1976.

The tradition will continue Saturday-Tuesday,

July 1-4, at Treasure Village,

located at 2023 Highway 86 near

Milford.

Neisess is co-owner of the facility,

and he operates the flea markets,

which are held three times each year

during the Memorial Day, Fourth of

July and Labor Day weekends.

The offerings were initiated by

Frank Hastings of Milford, who suggested

to Neisess that he should begin

holding the events.

“He said that he would round up

some vendors, and he found some

people that he knew,” Neisess said.

Now, about 80 spaces are offered,

and about 60 vendors participate in

the flea markets.

“Some of them take up two, three

or four spaces,” Neisess said. “A lot of

them are back in their usual spot, and

we have probably 15 new ones. We

always welcome new vendors. We can

always find a spot for them to squeeze

in somewhere.”

He noted that vendors will start

coming on Thursday to get set up,

while the bulk will pull through on

Friday. The smaller ones will show up

early Saturday morning.

“It’s just a fun time,” Neisess said.

Treasure Village’s Fourth of July flea

markets will have its usual food offerings

this year, ranging from kettle corn

to various types of beef jerky, gyros,

pulled pork, shaved ice and ice cream

cones. New offerings will include root

beer and rice and stir-fry vegetables.

Besides the flea markets, Treasure

Village also hosts the only 27-hole

miniature golf course in the Iowa Great

Lakes, and it boasts a family theatre

program, which is presenting three

shows — “Snow White,” “Aladdin”

and “Beauty and the Beast” — this

summer. Both offerings will be available

Fourth of July weekend, as well.

The location is staffed by its actors

for the most part, and Neisess said he

is continually complimented about

how positive everyone is.

“I hear that from a lot of vendors,”

he said. “They’re actors, so they learn

to be positive.”

What’s more, not only the staff, but

the flea market vendors have become

like a second family to Neisess.

“I always enjoy the vendors. You get

to know them quite well through the

years, which is the same with the theatre

staff,” he said. “I still enjoy it after

45 years. It’s been a fun adventure.” F
