Visit Turkeyville USA — Ever hear of Cornwell’s Turkeyville USA?  Now you have a chance to visit that fun site in Marshall, Michigan, for a taste of local history, a taste at their Ice Cream Parlour, a chance to browse the Country Junction Gift Shop, and a delicious traditional turkey dinner just before seeing the professional, Broadway-style Dinner Theatre’s presentation of “Savannah Sipping Society.” In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate---and an impromptu happy hour---and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years.  So raise your glass to these strong Southern women and their fierce embrace of life and say “Cheers”! Registration fliers will be available at the September meeting.  See you there.
