I can't even make this up.
"Flag Day parade in jeopardy"
It seems that the Flag Day Committee needs some cash, so one of the fund raisers is a burlesque and cabaret show.
Which is going to be held on March 15.
True. And, there's also spaghetti.
The paper says, "A cabaret-burlesque show with spaghetti, March 15."
I'm assuming you're going to EAT the spaghetti and not use it as part of the burlesque show.
But, who knows?
You should go. Why not? I'll try to find the location for you.
If you want to be involved in the planning of Flag Day, the next meeting is 5pm today at the Elks Lodge on Harry Howard Avenue. You don't have to be an Elk to attend.
GayHudson.com's Agnes appeared in the FIRST Flag Day Burlesque-Cabaret-Spaghetti benefit in 1908. They did not invite her back this year, though....we don't know why.
Also, Aubuchon Hardware store in Greenport closed this week. They said that there's too much competition. The paper mentioned Williams Lumber, Dunn Builder's Supply, WalMart, and the Tractor Supply store as its competition.
There was no mention of Rogerson's Hardware store....which is still open, but not on Sundays.
And lastly, on page two of the Reg-Star today, there was a 3/4 page article on vintage and thrift clothing stores "Secondhand fashion appeals to high-end shoppers, too"....but no mention of Hudson's own "Five and Diamond" or the "Second Show".
I don't know why....
