Annie Oakley is the best shot around. When she’s discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity. Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30p.m. and Sunday at 2p.m. Call 989-354-2267 for tickets.

Chosen Teen Conference – Fusion 9:00 am
Chosen Teen Conference – Fusion
Aug 4 @ 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
Featuring artist Canon & Joe Guerra. When our group searched for Christian based youth events (such as previously offered Aquire The Fire) for the state of Michigan, we couldn’t find anything! So……we created an event of our own! A little bit about us…we are a Christian non-profit home for abused,  abandoned, neglected, and otherwise homeless children. The location is Harrisville on a beautiful 160 acres where we raise the children up to know that God loves them, we love them, give them opportunities  they wouldn’t otherwise have, teach them life skills, equip them for life as an adult, and most importantly help them build that personal relationship with Jesus as they study His word. To learn more about our mission and this event check out the following website  https://www.chosenranch.org/.

Prehistoric Archaeology at 120′: Investigating 9,000 Year Old Hunting Sites Beneath Lake Huron
Aug 9 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Around 9,000 years ago, water levels in Lake Huron were much lower, exposing a dry land corridor where prehistoric peoples lived and herds of caribou migrated. Evidence of caribou hunting is found in archaeological sites 120 feet below the modern lake and have been investigated by the University of Michigan since 2009. These sites have been studied using sonar, ROVs, AUVs, and scuba divers and have revealed evidence of a subarctic Ice Age environment and culture during a critical time in Great Lakes prehistory. 989-884-6200

Annie Get Your Gun
Aug 9 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Annie Oakley is the best shot around. When she’s discovered by Col. Buffalo Bill, he persuades this novel sharpshooter to join his Wild West Show. It only takes one glance for her to fall head over heels for dashing shooting ace Frank Butler, who headlines the show. She soon eclipses Butler as the main attraction which, while good for business, is bad for romance. Butler hightails it off to join a rival show, his bruised male ego leading the way. The rousing, sure-fire finale hits the mark every time in a testament to the power of female ingenuity. Show times are Wednesday-Saturday at 7:30p.m. and Sunday at 2p.m. Call 989-354-2267 for tickets.
