08/06/2016 – Monthly flea and craft market

The Phillips Area Community Center (PACC) launches its third year of
First-Saturday- of-the- Month Flea and Craft Markets on May 7.
Vendors from all over the area set up tables in the old gym (PACC) to sell
everything from hand-knitted and hand-carved items to jewelry, books,
tools, toys, and kitchenware. “It’s a miscellaneous market,” says organizer
Pam Matthews. “The only theme it has is bargain shopping and buying
local.”
Started two years ago, the market quickly became a success, with more than
a dozen vendors showing up on an average weekend. The PACC sells snacks
and beverages, while across the way in the American Legion Hall, a weekly
Farmer’s Market (from Memorial Day weekend to the end of September)
features a wide range of produce and goods from local growers and bakers.
The Flea and Craft Market, located at the Community Center on Depot
Street in Phillips, runs from 10 to 2 every first Saturday of the month
through September. Vendor tables are $10, with tables and chairs provided.
Anyone who wishes to participate may call Pam Matthews at 639-2630.

08/01/2016 – "Steel Magnolias," Rangeley Friends of the Arts

08/01/2016 – "Steel Magnolias," Rangeley Friends of the Arts

Steel Magnolias

by Robert Harling

July 28, 29, 31 and August 1, 2016, 7:00 PM
Lakeside Theater

Presented by the Rangeley Friends of the Arts and Co-sponsored by ENS Associates and Rangeley Resort.

Steel Magnolias met with immediate critical and popular acceptance in its premier production in New York. Concerned with a group of gossipy southern ladies in a small-town beauty parlor, the play is alternately hilarious and touching-and, in the end, deeply revealing of the strength and purposefulness which underlies its characters. “Harling has given his women sharp, funny dialogue… The play builds to a conclusion that is deeply moving.” -NY Daily News,  “…suffused with humor and tinged with tragedy.” -NY Post.

Steel Magnolias has been produced on stages around the world, on Broadway, TV and Film. Anne Crump will be directing our production.

Admission: All seats are reserved and are $15. It is highly recommended that you purchase your tickets in advance. There will be a limited number of tickets available at the door. Buy tickets for this event HERE.
