You still have time to see “Street Stories – Glimpses of Homelessness“, which opened tonight and will be performed again tomorrow November 19 at 7 pm and Sunday November 1at 3 pm. This series of short plays interspersed with music, shares stories from our community and was written, produced, and is acted by community members to raise funds for Turning Point, a day shelter, and Room at the Inn, an overnight shelter run by area churches during the winter months. It’s also an effort to build bridges of empathy and compassion between the community and some of its most ignored and neglected members. Turn out for a good cause, and learn more about the struggles of those who are homeless and how you can help.
