To the Editor,
Another spring has arrived and we are looking forward to warm weather activities. One coming this week is our 62nd Annual National Day of Prayer, Thursday, May 2 at noon at the Moody County Courthouse Veterans Memorial.
People all over our nation will come together to seek God for our nation, state and communities. This is very timely as we need divine guidance to keep our land the Home of the Brave and the Land of the Free.
The theme this year is “Pray for America, In His name the Nations will put their Hope.” Pastor Greg Laurie of Harvest Crusades has accepted the role as honorary chairman this year and will be keynote speaker at the National Observance in Washington, D.C.
Ben Franklin, a great statesman proclaimed, “We need God to be our friend, not our enemy. We need him to be our ally not our adversary. We need to make sure that we keep his approving aid.”
The Lord has blessed us through the years, yet you see the trouble in our culture today. We have done our best to remove your word and your counsel from courtrooms, classrooms and culture. It seems as Abe Lincoln stated that we have forgotten God, but Lord, you haven’t forgotten us! We see the breakdown of the family, crippling addictions and random acts of horrific violence. “Forgive us Lord and heal this troubled land we love so much as we turn to you!” (Pastor Greg Laurie)
Come join us at noon at the Veterans Memorial on Thursday, May 2. God will surely hear us to lead, guide and direct our ways.
To the Editor,
Flandreau is in for a real treat on Saturday, May 11th. The Crystal Theatre will be hosting a concert with performers Stanford and Antonia Felix singing some opera and also songs from musical theatre such as “All I Ask of You” from Phantom of the Opera and also songs from Kiss Me Kate, Porgy and Bess and Miss Saigon.
It will be an evening to remember. Stanford is the son of Trudy Felix of Flandreau and the late Paul Felix. They have performed around the world and also are voice instructors in the twin cities. If you were to see world class entertainers like Stanford and Antonia in a larger city venue, you could pay $45-$50 or more. Here right in your backyard, you can see this quality for only $15.
The Crystal continues to provide good quality family entertainment because of the support of the community—folks like you. We appreciate your support, past, present and future. Please don’t miss this show. It’s a chance to see worldclass singers.
If you need additional information, please contact me or any Crystal board member. We look forward to see you at the Crystal on May 11th.
