A Variety of Shows Draws Many From the Tri-States
With four different puppet shows presented by midwestern puppeteers, the Hazel Green Opera House enjoyed a large gathering of people of all ages. The "Day of Puppetry" appeared to be a big success with over 125 people in attendance and 30 children taking part in the puppet work shop held at the Hazel Green UMC hall. A new influx of "parade puppets" was brought in by the Eulenspiegel Puppet Company of West Liberty, IA, along with live music supplied by the Southwestern High School Band. Root beer floats were the snack of choice in the afternoon and they were the product of the Benton Girl Scouts. We want to thank the Dubuque Racing Association for awarding a grant for this Day of Puppetry along with our other sponsors: Grant County Safe & Stable Families, HGCDC, BCDC, and the Benton State Bank.
