SENTINEL TRIBUNE INS 00DE Wednesday, July 6, 2011 Page 3 • Pageant - 00rom Ticket Sales A check with the pageant ticket office found that ticket sales have been brisk this past week. Pat Hansen, and Annette Foster were busy this past week confirming telephone reservations. According to Hansen they have five tour groups for the first weekend. In the past they have had tour groups buy tickets early then cancel fight before the pageant. They have been getting a lot of inquiries, but they said a lot of people make their reservations closer to the actual date they want to attend. People worry about the weather, but they do not call off the pageant until 9:00 p.m. most of the time. You might have rain showers in the morning or afternoon, but then it will clear off by evening. Last year was one of the rare times the pageant has had a rain out. But despite that, they had a very good year. Family Festival The Family Festival has a full line up of entertainment and activities for young and old. Saturday July 9 there will be entertainment from 11:00 to 5:30 p.m. Demonstrations during the day will be old time black- smith, corn shelling, weaving, wood carver, seed art, corn husk dolls and much more. Music and presentations will progress throughout the day. Playing in the corn tubs at the fam- ily festival.

Wilder Museum The Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum and Information Center will be open all day. The museum has several new displays, an expanded gift shop, and a new hands on area ready for visitors. So if you are looking for a great time, come to Walnut Grove for the opening of the Wilder Pageant, The Family Festival, and the Wilder Museum. The covered wagon at the Wilder Museum is a popular photo site. (File photo) M inn -- From page 1 e Kelly Beaty office manager at the Westbrook Utilities Department said "it will not have an effect on us. The only thing is people wanting to sign up for fuel assistance will have to wait, as Western Community Action is shut down. It will be business as usual for us." Paula McGarvey, Walnut Grove City Clerk, said "I don&apos;t think it will affect us a lot -- except for when we have to contact the state for reports and things like that." The city will still be able to run their charitable gam- bling at the bar and grill. One thing it could affect would be licensing from the state for the gambling, but it is good for some time. McGarvey had received a letter from the state indicat- ing the city would continue to receive their LGA. Both Westbrook and Walnut Grove receive a little less than half their budget from LGA. Wanda Hoyt, of Hoyt's Oil and Convenience in Walnut Grove, received a letter warning them of the state shut- down of the lottery. "We told most of our daily ticket buy- ers that they would not be able to buy tickets if the state shut down," she said. "We have quite a few daily buyers." Other than the lottery, Hoyt thinks it will not affect their regular gas and convenience business. "People will still buy their gas and convenience items," she said. A check at the Plum Creek Camp Ground found that all available sites were booked for the fourth of July weekend. Park Manager AI Nelson, said "we have had a few requests for sites, but we were full before the state shut down." The state park at Lake Shetek was also closed. But the camp ground there had been closed all spring for remodel- ing. However, it was scheduled to open in July. It's anyone's guess as to how long the shut-down will last. But for state employees and others as well, they hope it will be short.
