WPAA to present concert
by pianist Mac Frampton
?Pianist Mac Frampton’s Christmas show will kick off the holiday season at 3 p.m., Sunday, Dec. 8 at the Cultural Arts Center at Colby Community College. Admission is by Western Plains Arts Association season ticket or at the door: adults, $20; students, $10.
As a performer, for the better part of four decades and counting, Mac has realized his dreams. He’s played the huge arenas and the concert halls, soloed with the great orchestras and released scores of recordings. His number of return engagements is unprecedented.
Now, in the fullness of artistic maturity, after nearly 4,000 performances worldwide, Mac Frampton returns to his roots and remains committed to a fundamental belief: music is a powerful form of communication, capable of speaking more deeply than words.
?Naomi Reeh of McDonald was crowned 2013 Homecoming Queen at Benedictine College Oct. 19 at half time of the Benedictine Ravens football game. Ryan Boh was crowned King. The theme for this year's activities was "Legacy," so it was very appropriate that Naomi's grandmother, Rose Mary (Strathman) Riley, of Iola, was there to crown her granddaughter. Rose Mary was St. Benedict's Homecoming Queen in 1950. Naomi is the daughter of Jolene Reeh of McDonald and the late Bob Reeh.
