A blog about Lindsborg

Welcome to Lindsborg Town Talk, your source for news about upcoming events and activities in Lindsborg.

The Courtyard Gallery in Lindsborg is hosting their “Third Saturday, meet the Artist” event today, Saturday July 19th, from 11 until 4pm. This week, Stan Harder, a Nebraska artist who does fine woodworking, will be on hand to share his work.

The Lindsborg Community Library is hosting a summer reading camp this year. The theme is, “Catch the Reading Bug,” and kids ages 3 to 11 are invited to participate. The camp is held on Mondays at 6pm and includes dinner. There are 2 sessions left, this Monday, the 21st and the following week, on the 28th. The 21st will feature a presentation by the Salina Discovery Center, and the session on the 28th will host a program put on by the Orkin company; I guess they know a little bit about bugs!

Over at the Bethany Home, area photographer Kathy Shogren continues to display some of her award winning nature photographs. The show runs through the month of July. Included in the display are wonderful photos of landscapes, close-ups of insects and flowers.

This year, the talented cast and crew of the midwest’s longest running outdoor theater, Broadway RFD, are performing State Fair, a classic play by Rogers and Hammerstein. Performances are in Swensson Park, starting at 8:30 pm on July 19th, that’s tonight and also on the 25th and 26th. Tickets are 6$ for adults and 4$ for children. They may be purchased in advance at the Lindsborg Chamber of Commerce or at the park the evening of the shows. Rain dates are July 20th and 27th. There is bleacher seating available and folks are also invited to bring their own lawn chairs.

One last note, mark your calendars for August 23rd! That’s when Lindsborg Live hosts King Midas and the Mufflers for a street dance in downtown Lindsborg.
