It's a grand ol' time at the Opry
Bring the family for a night of fun April 20

WILLIAMS - It will soon be time to head to the Williams Rodeo Barn for a night of lighthearted fun at Grand Opry Night. The always-entertaining semi-annual evening of music and family entertainment takes place April 20 from 6:30-9 p.m. at the corner of Airport and Rodeo Road.

Event organizer Ruth Sanzari said it is great to see new faces at the event.

"We are thankful for the new people who come to enjoy the music by our local musicians," she said. "The Opry Band includes Jan Bardwell, Debi Campbell, Lois Ann Dick, Greg Mendonca and Phil Sanzari."

The evening will also feature musicians Katie Wamble, the Hamby family, Ivy Mendonca, Robert Symth, as well as comedic contributions from Andy McDaniel. Pamelia LaPaglia will emcee the event and sing the "Tennessee Waltz" for the crowd.

Opry-goers are encouraged to come early to look over all the raffle and auction items up for bid. Items up for auction and raffle in the past have included Bearizona passes, hunting gear, tools, and a juicer among many others. Raffle tickets are $1 each or six for $5.

All proceeds from the live auction will benefit the Williams Habitat for Humanity chapter. The chapter is in the process of building a second home at 412 E. Edison Ave.

"The dedication will be later this year when it is completed," Sanzari said, adding that the evening is a wonderful time to visit with friends, enjoy the ever-popular cakewalk, eat hot dogs and enjoy all the free popcorn you might desire.

Entrance to Opry Night is $6 per adult and $3 for seniors and students. Families of four are $15 and tickets are available at the door.
