JULY 2017

July 27, 2017 - September 10, 2017: Church Basement Ladies

The church basement kitchen throughout much of America is often the heart and soul of any church. In CHURCH BASEMENT LADIES we meet the pastor, three cooks and one daughter who run the kitchen and care for the congregation. As in any kitchen, problems arise. We watch as the four women handle a Lutefisk Dinner, a funeral, an Easter Fund Raiser, and, of course, a wedding. They stave off potential disasters, have loads of fun, share and debate recipes, instruct the young, and keep the pastor on a steady course. This musical comedy, which has charmed audiences all over the nation, is funny, heart-warming, and down to earth. It will bring back memories of many people you know and love.

Seven shows weekly Wednesday through Sunday

July 29, 2017: Lake Ripley Ride

It’s the4th annual Lake Ripley Ride.  Choose between three course distances, all of which started at Ripley Park: 22 miles, 40 miles, or a 62 mile metric century.  Preregister online or at 7am the day of the ride. More than half of the riders choose the toughest route of 62 miles.

With over 200 riders participating in the event, there were cyclists seen all over town. The first rest stop was located at CamRock III. The local Girl Scouts, headed by Amanda Hollis, showered the riders with support and lots of goodies. Riders continuing on the 40 mile course took a tour through the countryside and headed to West Koshkonong church, where Cindy Brady and members of the CHS girls’ basketball team were waiting to help the riders cool down and replenish. Ice cold towels were provided to all the riders to offer relief from the heat.

The ride continued to Marshall Fireman’s park, where the CAP Body FIT crew was stationed to provide support. Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches along with fruit, water, and Gatorade were available to nourish the cyclists.

After trekking their respective miles, riders headed back to Ripley Park for a superb chicken dinner provided by the Cambridge Lions Club.

The goal of the Lake Ripley Ride was to raise funds for JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) and the Cambridge CAP.

August 8, 2017 - August 9, 2017: Southern Raised

Southern Raised is a group of award winning kinfolk, trained in classical music but raised in the bluegrass soaked Ozark Mountains. They have created a trademark sound where classical meets bluegrass and city streets meet country roads. Their sound spans Christian Country, Bluegrass, Celtic, and Classical. They’re talented, energetic, and when these siblings croon a ballad it’s nothing short of breathtaking. Be prepared to expect the unexpected as new life is breathed into the music and your soul. Collectively they have received nominations from Singing News Fan Awards, Diamond Awards, Front Porch Fellowship, and 32 alone from the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America. These four string-wielding siblings, Lindsay, Sarah, Emily, and Matthew have a strong passion for music that has taken them to the cutting edge of creativity. They are sweeping the country with a sound that has been described as “the other side of amazing.”
