The Marvelous Wonderettes at the Pulaski Theater for Valentines Day


These lovely Ladies have really got the talent and we are so lucky they are coming to our local Pulaski Theater this Valentines Day 2013. T he Marvelous Wonderettes is a great off -Broadway musical  written by Roger Bean . You are taken to the 1958 Springfield High School prom where we meet the Wonderettes. Four crazy girls with all sorts of talent and spunk! As we learn about their lives and loves, we are treated to the girls performing  classic ‘50s and ‘60s songs with a do wop style as good as it gets on over 20  classic hits!  A real musical trip down memory lane!

Have you been trying to come up with a great VALENTINES Day gift for your Lady. Well here it is. Rockwood Manor has some rooms available on a first come first served basis and at a discounted price of only $125 for the evening and breakfast the next morning. And better still is the fact that “the Marvelous Wonderettes” will be spending the evening and joining us for breakfast.


Marvelous Wonderettes

An Off Broadway Hit and Musical.

Our Friend and Angel Connie Richeson has gone to her Heavenly home

There are some  people in this great big world who just shine like a star and Connie was one of them.


Everyone was her friend and she would go out of her way constantly to make you feel special or help you in anyway.

I remember her  taking over the kitchen here and feeding our guests when Rochelle and I could not be here for that.

She would travel to Central America to help those in need and just glow about it. Always taking on the work of The Lord and living it too.

Constance was a living example of what it means to be a Christian and I am sure the Good Lord would agree.

We Love you and you will be sorely missed. 

The following words were written for Connie by Sarah McMillin and Caroline Donnelly and spoken at the service yesterday (1/10/13)by Sarah.

Where can I find Connie?

She is the warm love within our hearts , She is the Ray of light that breaks through the cloud cover, She is the resplendence of the blue crab,

She is the dancing of the sandpipers, She is the laughter inside our souls, She is the dramatic glow of a Sandbridge sunset,

She is the gentle caress of the ocean wave, She is the wonder in a child’s eyes, She is the fierceness of the mighty osprey,

She is the devotion of a pair of Tundra swans, She is the playfulness of a leaping dolphin,

She is that comforting summer breeze as it glances your cheek,

She is a love everlasting, She is home in the Glory of God, and
