A blog about Lindsborg

Hello everyone,

On Sunday, July 8th, from 2-4pm there will be a special Swedish Genealogy workshop at the Bethany Lutheran Church Fellowship Hall. This free workshop is an excellent opportunity to learn more about researching your Swedish ancestors. You may call 227-3595 for more information.

Well, it’s summer, and nothing says summer more than baseball! That makes this year’s Broadway RFD production a timely one, as this year they’re performing the baseball themed musical, Damn Yankees.

Returning to the bandshell in Swensson Park, the very popular annual summertime theater performances presented by Lindsborg’s Broadway RFD are always a highlight of the summer season in Lindsborg. Performances this year will be held on two weekends, Friday and Saturday, July 13th and 14th and again on the 20th and 21st.

So bring your blankets and lawn chairs and head over to the park for this year’s Broadway RFD show. Peformances begin at 8:30 and tickets are available at the gate. Prices are $6 for adults, 4$ for children ages 5 through 12 and kids under 4 are free.

Again, there’s 4 performances of Damn Yankees, Friday and Saturday the 13th and 14th of July and again the weekend of the 20th and 21st.

The Red Barn Studio will be hosting Rodger Gerberding, Council Bluffs, Iowa, as the Artist-in-Residence from July 1st – 21st. Rodger works in diverse media, including sculpture, printmaking, collage, box construction, drawing and painting.

During his residency Rodger will be working in mixed media and recycled material. He will also lead a Box Assemblage Workshop incorporating found or personal items on Saturday, July 14th , 12:15 – 4pm.
