Gretchen Peters

Our latest show was last night at The Dairy with Gretchen Peters and Barry Walsh.  They played two sets and blew everyone away!  There were guests from as far away as St. Louis, and people of all ages.  Gretchen played many songs from her new album, "One to the Heart, One to the Head," but also included fan favorites and her biggest hits.  We just couldn't believe someone like Gretchen would play for us!

Wedding pics
Hope this works.  It's a snapshow of wedding photos.

"We ain't got no school!" could be heard several days in a row.  Keith and Sophie would dance around and sing the ditty when Snowman 6 scrolled that Massac Unit 1 was cancelled yet again.
