Lofte Community Theatre Volunteer Recognition

Manley, NE [February 9, 2010]- Each February the Lofte Community Theatre takes a deep breath before the start of its new season. An evening is set aside to salute its volunteers and honor them with food and gifts. This year, the Volunteer Recognition and Annual Meeting is set for Saturday, February 27th at 6pm.

The Dale Crosby Awards will be given to three of the Lofte's most outstanding volunteers. The award is named in honor of long-time Lofte President and friend, Dale Crosby of Weeping Water whom we lost in 2001. Mr. Crosby was a man who never found any job too small or unimportant. His dedication and hard work inspired many and he is still sorely missed.

In conjunction with the Volunteer Recognition activities, the Lofte Board of Directors will conduct a short business meeting to inform the public of its financial standing and plans for the future. Artistic Director, Kevin Colbert will review the 2009 season highlighting his favorite performances and fondest memories. He will also announce his show selections for the 2011 season.

All members of the Lofte Community Theatre are invited to attend. Membership is earned if you have ever purchased a ticket, volunteered your time, donated funds or performed on stage. Basically, if you've ever been to the Lofte or helped in any way, you're invited! The evening is your chance to relax, catch-up with old friends and enjoy some delicious food.

Please RSVP for this event by calling the box office at (402) 234-2553 or emailing Jean Colbert at LofteTickets@Lofte.com

Pictured on attachment: Lynn Plucknett and Nikki Biesterfeld of Louisville are just two of the many volunteers that it takes to make the Lofte a success.
