"THE BUTLER DID IT" AT STAR THEATER IN R.S.

 
Coming to the Star Theater this weekend, the comedy mystery "The Butler Did It".
 
When it comes to solving murder mysteries, it’s always the one you least suspect! The very proper butler Jenkins and the fiery Cockney maid Sarah Jane are preparing the Covington household for a visit from Edwina Corry, the world’s greatest mystery author and friend to Lady Miranda and Colonel Covington. Other guests arriving include Lady Covington’s feisty old mother, their high-flying daughter Kat, their chatty priest who doesn’t know when to quit and the caddish, eavesdropping neighbor boy Trevor. Things are soon thrown into confusion, however, when Trevor is found stabbed to death in the kitchen. On her arrival, Edwina eagerly launches an investigation into the murder. Unfortunately, the evidence is stacked against poor Jenkins from the start, and when the bloody knife is found in his pocket, the other members of the household tie him to a chair and call the police. The only problem? Jenkins didn’t do it. And now he’s got just half an hour to figure out who the real murderer is — while still tied to the chair.
 
Tickets: $8 for Adults; $5 for Children ages 12-2; Children under 2 are restricted. Tickets can be purchased online at http://www.startheater.org OR at the box office one hour before performances.

J.O.Y. MINISTRIES FUNDRAISING PROJECT TO HELP LOCAL FAMILY

 
J. O. Y. Ministries is excited to partner with a local group of volunteers to work on the "Paz Holley Project".
 
As many in the community are aware, in October of 2017 a local mother of five was murdered. Her brother and his wife have taken in her children. They already had five small children of their own. Since this tragedy took place, many people began to pray for them and a way to help them.
 
A group of local volunteers joined together in January discussing plans to help the family obtain a home that would accommodate this large family and to take that burden of a having a roof over their heads off their shoulders. We are in the process of acquiring some property to build a new home or purchasing an already existing home that can be renovated to meet their needs. A goal of $100,000 to complete the project has been set.
 
If you or your church would like to donate, please send your donations in the form of check to: J. O. Y. Ministries, P.O. Box 114, Columbia, KY 42728. Please indicate in the memo line "Paz Holley Project." All donations are tax deductible. 
 
For more information, contact: Rick Wilson at 270-378-1490, Troy Grider at 270-250-3523 OR Robin Lewis at 270-250-5299.
