Some performances in Port Ludlow

Posted

Recent past performances in Ludlow have been many and varied. There was some high-quality fiddling around at the Bay Club with a performance by the Quebe Sisters from Burleson, Texas.

Sophia, Hulda and Grace sang and played a long list of Western swing songs, generating occasional whoops and hollers from the more spirited in the audience.

The Port Ludlow Performing Arts group continues to bring in high-quality entertainment for the locals to enjoy. The regularly sold-out performances are testament to the support and appreciation the group gets from the community.

We enjoy going to the monthly Dine and Discover programs through the winter months, but, frankly, the topic of the last one held little excitement for me. We enjoyed sitting and talking with Mike and Charlotte Eidlin, but the subject of road projects being done in the area wasn’t the sexiest topic I could conjure up.

However, Claudia Bingham Baker, Olympic Region communication manager, far exceeded my expectations as she provided valuable information on the projects in the area, such as work planned for the Hood Canal Bridge, repaving State Route 20 from Port Townsend down to Four Corners, Tacoma construction projects and more.

In addition, she was straightforward with answers to the questions. I remember one in particular: “Are you going to do anything about the dangerous intersection of Paradise Bay Road and State Route 104 near the Hood Canal Bridge?”

Her answer was “No.” There was no pussyfootin’ around with Claudia, she knew the answers to all the questions, even the tough ones. She informed the audience clearly and crisply that we need to realize we will be living with congestion on our roads into the foreseeable future and we must learn to live with it, particularly in Seattle.

There will be two Dine and Discover evenings in May, one on May 7 and a special one on May 17. On May 7, there will be the regular agenda of dinner and a program. On May 17, a special celebration and “thank-you” to Don and Lynne Folsom will be held before they move on to Colorado.

More information will be forthcoming, but please put those dates on your calendar.

Another future performance is “Suite Surrender,” the offering from the Ludlow Village Players both this weekend and next. It is advertised to be a fast-paced and hilarious play successfully staged at theaters across the country.

Shows are at 7 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, with matinees at 2 p.m. on Sunday.

Come and check it out at the Bay Club.

The annual meeting of the Ludlow Maintenance Commission will be held at 2 p.m. April 21 at The Beach Club. On May 20, there will be a cocktail party at 5:30 p.m. at The Beach Club for LMC members to celebrate a successful 2017.

I have come to find out that last week’s mystery woman was Fran Huntingford Gunn. Thanks for the memories. (Check my April 4 column if you want more information.)

I know it is April, but I am done with the wet weather!

I understand some Major League Baseball games have actually been “snowed out.” Oh well, the better weather is coming, and that means we will be able to spend more time with the grandsons.

It reminds me of what John Whitehead tells us: “Children are the living messages we send to a time we will never see.”

Hopefully with less rain.

Love a curmudgeon and have a great week.
