The Great Bend community is invited to spend a special afternoon at this year's Community Music for Mission Concert. The concert will be held in the Presbyterian Church Sanctuary, 24th and Washington, at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 29. Talented musicians from churches in the Great Bend area will be offering musical praise to God through a variety of musical formats, from hand bells and chimes to vocal solo, duet, quartet and choral groups, to piano solos and a brass quintet.
The Great Bend Recreation Commission will introduce its new Stroller Walks wellness program with orientation meetings at 9:30 a.m. and 6 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 23, at the south shelter house in Veterans Memorial Park. Program Coordinator Megan Hammeke said parents with children in strollers or walking can attend either session and receive a free T-shirt. They will also learn about the free stroller walking program. Parents walk with their children while enjoying the benefits of exercise with friends and family on their own schedule.
Fifteen members of the Great Bend Garden Club enjoyed Pat Halbower's delightfully humorous personal account of the evolution of the forest of various trees, the ever changing flower beds and lawn, and the feeding of creatures, both winged and four legged, both wanted and unwanted, that have been the experience of the Halbowers over the past 40-plus years as they have worked in and enjoyed the outdoor spaces of their home. Arrangements for the program at the September Garden Club meeting were made by Delores Grose.
