6 I The Lovell Chronicle I September 2, 2010 www. LovellChronicle.com Blackwood Legacy members are (l-r) pianist Luke Yates, tenor singer Jake Yates and MC Rick Price. Sept. 8 Blackwood Legacy to perform at Lovell Methodist Church The Nashville-based "Blackwood Legacy" con- temporary southern gospel group will be in concert on Wednesday, Sept. 8, at 7 p.m., at the Lovell United Methodist Church. Admis- sion is free and a love offer- ing will be received. A popular touring group, Blackwood Legacy is led by Rick Price, a veteran Southern Gospel entertain- er with more than 30 years in the industry, including many years as the lead sing- er for the Grammy and Dove awarding-winning Black- wood Brothers Quartet, with whom he was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. Believing"the road to the future is paved with memo- ries of the past," and recog- nizing the need to reach au- diences of all ages, Price has gathered some talented and new artists to create a dy- namic concert that features the well-remembered old fa- vorites such as Beulah Land and How Great Thou Art, as well as music made popular by today's most recognized worship artists. Included in the talent lineup are Wash- ington State natives Luke and Jake Yates, worship musicians and singers who recently exploded on the gospel music scene. The Lovell United Methodist Church is lo- cated at 456 Shoshone. For more information on this event call 307 548-7478, visit the group's website at www.blackwoodlegacy.org, or search for them on Face- book. Free Cowboy football tickets for Wyo.

Deaver Festival will be packed to the brim with fun BY BRAD DEVEREAUX While there are many town celebrations in north Big Horn County, a new and unique celebration will be held for the first time in Deaver this year and prom- ises to be one not to miss. The Deaver Festival, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 11, will be an all-day event for all ages featuring a variety of things to keep everyone busy. What kinds of things? The festival will feature live music all day on two stages, children's art work- shops, food vendors, craft booths, children's sto- ry time once an hour, a farmer's market, yard sale booths, cowboy poetry, a recycled art contest, barn dance, artwork and a 9/11 commemoration. Entertainment will be made up of local and re- gional acts, including Home Brewed, a reggae/jazz jam band from Meeteetse, R&R Mariachi of Billings, Deav- er filddler Kelly Wells and the Scandinavian Dancers of Red Lodge. Organizer Rose Wen- strom said vendors, booth operators and entertain- ment acts have been en- couraged to be interactive, so many booths will feature demonstrations or lessons about their craft. "Some booths are inter- active and some are demon- strating how to make what they're selling," Wenstrom said, mentioning a clay artist and silversmith as some of the demos planned. "It's kind of like a creativ- ity starter for people, kids mostly." Deaver Fest Saturday, Sept. 11 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. Memorial Park The first event of its kind, Wenstrom said she had a vision to make the festival something that lo- cal people could go to and have a great and action- packed day close to home, noting that driving a half hour away for an event gets old after a while. 'Tith the closing of the school, we're very aware that there's nothing in town for children or families," Wenstrom said. "I thought having the festival could be a way kick off new things and bring new things into town." A portion of the festival was paid for with a $2,500 grant from the Wyoming Arts Council. With the 50- 50 match grant, organiz- ers also put $2,500 toward the fest, and the Town of Deaver covered advertising costs. Organizers raised their portion of the match from business sponsorships and booth rentals. The main stage located near Memorial Park will feature live bands while stage two, located across the park, will hold smaller bands and other entertain- ment. Entertainment will stretch from 9:30 a.m. un- til 9 p.m. With some of the booths spilling onto 1st Av- enue West, the street will be closed all day Saturday, Wenstrom said. There will be about 80 booths, she said. The Deaver Frannie Fire Department will hold a fundraiser lunch from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. On a serious note, a brief 20-minute commemo- ration will be held at 1 p.m. in honor of people who lost their lives in the Sept. 11, 2001, tragedies. "It's a way to remember the day and how it changed our lives, and how we go forward," Wenstrom said. A bagpipe player will play while an honor guard performs the ceremony and a group of local girls sings the National Anthem. Wenstrom said she is still in need of volunteers.
