Children: (ages Kdg – 8th grade) Marilyn has suggested you listen to a You Tube version of “Getting to Know You” and be prepared to sing some of the song.



< WORK DAY > POSTPONED due to circumstances beyond our control.  WILL LET YOU KNOW ASAP WHEN RE-SCHEDULED!

The more workers helping, the quicker we finish!

WACT recently acquired more convenient space for costumes, props and paint. Now those items need to be moved, and assistance is needed. So, a work afternoon has been planned to move paint and some of our props from the old Martin Yale Building to a room we are renting from the New Journey Church (Old W.C. Mills Elementary School on the South Side of Wabash). We are planning to move these items on Sunday, April 17, at 2:00 p.m. If you can help, show up with a truck or just bring your muscles. We appreciate any time you can give us!

Thank you,
WACT Moving Team - headed by Gary Dale and John Minkler
