The first event is the Second Annual "Holstein's Got Talent" review. This show will present a wide variety of music, comedy and even a few surprises. "This event was such a success last year, and we had so much fun putting it on that we decided we'd do it again," explained Kathy Breyfogle, who will direct the show. "I think a lot of folks in our audience were surprised at the level of talent that they saw on our stage, and there has been a lot of interest in bringing it back. The performers had a good time too, so we have had no problem in filling out this year's roster. Each of our performers has some current or past connection to Holstein, and some will travel quite a distance to be with us."
Admission is family-friendly at just $5 per person. "Proceeds will go to benefit Clausen Center operations," explained Breyfogle, "but this is really is more about giving back to our community by offering onstage opportunities for talented performers and showcasing the Rosemary Clausen Center for those who may not have yet had a chance to experience it. We know that everyone who attends will have a great time."
Tickets will be available at the box office on the day of the show, but they will also be available in advance at Holstein's Community Bank, the United Bank of Iowa and Heritage Bank as well as the Stubbs Memorial Library and the Larson Insurance office. For more information, call 712-368-4849.
The second event of the day will be the World's Greatest Chili Cookoff at the Holstein Country Club beginning an hour after the talent show. Doug Leonard is directing this event and looking for another great field of contestants. Admission to this event is also just $5 per person at the door. Those attending will have a chance to sample the fare, vote for their favorites and take home a souvenir mug. A cash bar is available.
