Wilmore Opry News by Vanita Blundell
The Wilmore Opry will be at the Heritage Center in Medicine Lodge, Kansas. The Heritage Center is on Highway 160 east of Medicine Lodge- it is across the highway from the Peace Treaty entrance and at the Isabel turn off. We are delighted to be at the Heritage Center and hope you will enjoy the new building and the wonderful large SOFT seats. No more hard folding chairs for you to sit on.
The Opry is gearing up for our show on July 8th at 6:00 p.m. It will be a Youth Revue, those who are senior in high school or below. The show is a benefit for the Heritage Museum in Medicine Lodge and the Wilmore Opry Hurting fund. The Heritage Museum is trying to get what they need to finish up with the Museum. The Wilmore Opry has established a fund to help those who are in need. We have helped many in the past and with your help we can serve many others.
The show is shaping up nicely with Greensburg’s Sarah Unruh everyone loves to hear her sing.
From the Pratt area we will have Peyton Whitfield. Peyton has won the honor of performing for the Miss Kansas Pageant in her age division. We are very proud of her accomplishments.
We will also have from Hays, Brandon Smith. He has performed on the Opry before at Greensburg and at the Christmas Opry that we had in Medicine Lodge. He brought the house down with his awesome voice.
Micah Thom from Dexter, Kansas will be on hand to sing. She has added something a little extra to her act. If you are curious to know, what Micah has in store for your entertainment you will have to come and see for yourself. She is going to have a friend join her on stage, which I have been told is a real crowd pleaser.
Chase Foster of Winfield, Kansas will be showing off his talents playing his fiddle. He has played for the Opry one time before. He played the all time favorite Orange Blossom Special with a group from Winfield. He has performed in the Country Stampede in San Antonio, Texas. You will certainly want to hear him.
Sarah Trillo of Winfield, Kansas will be here for your enjoyment. She has sung with the same group, Generations, that Chase Foster played with. She is a real sweetheart and you will want to hear her.
From the Medicine Lodge area we will have Danielle Morford. We are excited to have her. This will be the first time she has performed for the Wilmore Opry.
Aly Sutherlin will be here as well. She performed when we had the Opry at the Twilight Theater in Greensburg, Kansas. She did an Elvis impersonation along with a wardrobe change with each song that she sang. She has sung in Oklahoma- Kansas- Missouri - Nashville Tennessee-and Texas. We are pleased that she has made time in her busy schedule to perform for us.
