Garrison Keillor will entertain area residents

Posted in Lanesboro Government

Lanesboro, Minn. - On Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2012, Garrison Keillor will headline a DFL fundraising evening at the Lanesboro Community Center, 202 Parkway Avenue South in Lanesboro. The event will feature Keillor’s endearing and original Lake Wobegon-style storytelling, humor and sage commentary.

Doors open at 6 p.m. with pre-show entertainment beginning at 6:15 p.m. by local musicians who’ve earned rave reviews from regional audiences. Musical talent includes the bluesy Rutabaga Brothers, the harmonic Rhubarb Sisters, CBBJ - the new jazz combo offshoot of the famous Chatfield Brass Band, plus Accordionation, a duo of accordionaires extraordinaire, Barb Keith and Bill Swanson.

The main event at 7:30 p.m. is of course Garrison Keillor, famous public radio personality and writer, author of his popular Homegrown Democrat. Keillor last entertained thousands of his radio show fans in Lanesboro back in June of 2007 when he broadcast his Prairie Home Companion show from the softball field. Sharing the program with Keillor will be DFL state legislative candidates Ken Tschumper, running for House District 28B, and Jack Krage, candidate for Senate District 28. The evening will begin and end with spirited patriotic sing-alongs.

A voter registration station in the community hall will be available before and after the show. This free service is open to the voting public as well as the event audience. Information stations will also make it easy for voters to learn about constitutional amendment campaigns: Families United (marriage amendment) and Our Vote, Our Future (voter ID amendment).

Admission is $20 per person at the door, cash or check. There will be no advance ticket sales. Since no food or beverage vendors will be at the fundraiser, local eateries invite attendees to dine before the show. Visit Lanesboro.com for restaurant information.

The Garrison Keillor evening of entertainment, information and inspiration is sponsored by the Fillmore County DFL. Proceeds will support Democratic candidates in the 2012 election. For further information please contact Peggy Hanson at 507-467-2620 or email mjhanson50@gmail.com.
