Steamboat Days 2015

GRSF will have float in the Steamboat Days Parade, June 21. Shakespeare for Young Adult actors will portray Romeo and Juliet.   Lee Gundersheimer, GRSF managing director, would like 4-6 FOW volunteers to walk along the float to hand out information about the Festival and Will Run.   The float is #33 in the parade; walkers will need to arrive at 11:45 for the 12:31 start.   Needed! One large plant (can be artificial) or garden statue for Romeo to hang onto.  ~ If you would like to walk in the parade or have a plant/statue to loan please contact Lee Gundersheimer.


Callithump Raffle Quilt

The Festival season theme and the season poster designed by Wisconsin artist, Pete Sandker were the inspiration for the 2012 Callithump raffle quilt. The Will Quilt team created a quilt featuring costume shop fabrics in an abstract tree in the quilt’s center. 10 solid roots pay tribute to the first decade and artistic director Paul Barnes. 12 branches represent growth and Season 12. A heart in the root mass represents the season theme, What love dares. A piano key border, made largely from costume shop fabric, honors the music that contributes so much to many of the plays and the Festival.  Winona’s Knitcraft Corporation also donated several fabrics for the quilt. All FOW are invited  to sell raffle tickets to family and friends. Stop by the Box office to get them; it’s a great way to support GRSF!


Will Quilt team members Connie Lrson, Dee Cipov, Lori Krumholz, Mary Alice Anderson, Mary Kaser and Ann Kendrick sewed the binding on the built June 2.
