The Follies 2023: Thank You for the Music
September arrived in fine fashion, as did the HLP Follies show! It was a great success and we are grateful for the attendance and support of our audiences. The Producer, Ruth Blackwell, and our Director Linda Boryk did an amazing job creating an intimate, funny, and sentimental show full of action and song. The ode to music was indicated in the Follies theme this year; “Thank you for the Music”. Linda has graced this production with her guidance, diligence, and talent. Look for our Follies again in September of 2024!
Every month HLP offers Karaoke for the community. It always is a blast as it offers singing, dancing and getting together with new and old friends. Please note our Halloween Party, “Scaryoke” is just around the corner! We will be having Tom’s Tunes inviting you to sing your heart out! Costumes are optional, but more than welcomed. Come on by on October 28th at 7pm and the community center. Be sure and bring a Ghoul Friend!
