Will And Anthnoy, Football, and 9/11 Memorial
The weekend of September 10 and 11 featured a number of events at Peru State College.
I managed to attend the three events noted in the preceding photographs at which I took pictures.
Twins Will and Anthony (Nunziata) became the first professional presentation in the new Recital Hall in the Fine Arts Building. Will and Anthony entertained the small Saturday morning crowd both with their singing of Broadway hits and their often hilarious exchanges with both themselves an the audience with whom they engaged with enthusiasm.
We all appreciated their visit to campus and their presentation on campus. Will and Anthony performed in Brownville as part of the Brownville Concert Series that brings wonderfully talented individuals and groups to the area--and at a reasonable price for students.
I posted a couple videos of Will and Anthony's performance, which include songs and humor: Part One and Part Two.
After the concert, I went to the Oak Bowl for the first home gave of the season. The Bobcats won with relative ease, 58-27 over Culver-Stockton.
The game also featured the Bert Swenson Awards. This year, the awards went to Jon Stanley (Baseball) and Krista Patton (Softball).
As the photographs from the game (and the concert) suggest, everyone enjoyed a grand time on a beautiful day.
And Sunday evening, on a more somber note, PRIDE with the help of other individuals and other campus groups, organized on campus a September 11th Remembrance Service.
The photographs capture something of the involvement of all concerned on an evening that featured in particular the Peru VFW Color Guard and speeches by Dale Thomas and Elaine Hanson.
Dale Thomas, a Auburn firefighter who joined other volunteers at Ground Zero, talked about his experiences.
And Elaine Hanson discussed the many benefits that community and other forms of service offer individuals and groups.
Michala Woverton and Jacob Acers played Taps.
