Saturday Night, 3-30-13

A good time was had tonight in Woodbine, Ga. at The Woodbine Opry.  Our first-time visitors were from Woodbine, Folkston, and Dahlonega, Ga., Jacksonville and Yulee, Fl., Burlington, Ky., and Frankfort, Germany.  I do hope that you had a pleasant experience with us and maybe can come back for a return visit.Woodbine 3-30-13 083

Thanks to all who donated to the cake table; it was full again.  The half-n-half was $241.00.

Those providing tonight’s entertainment were Robert McCullers, Aubrey Jones, J.C. Hunnicutt, Joe Muench, Hershel Hickox, T.K. Hilton, Nelly Aba, and our special guest, Lonnie Portwood, and yours truly.  Thanks to all of these performers for their contribution to tonight’s program.  It was a great one.  We really appreciated Lonnie Portwood for filling in for us tonight.  As usual, his performance was outstanding.

The Woodbine Opry is a good place for all to have fun, and we like seeing you enjoying yourselves.  I do ask that respect is given to all who attend, and this includes the band.  I nearly stopped the music once tonight because of so much carrying on near the stage.  It was beginning to interfere with the program.  Please be courteous and respectful with your conduct in this county owned facility.  

Check back in with us on Thursday for the Mid-Week Tid Bits, and “like” us on facebook at The Woodbine Opry/Saturday Night.

Opry On!

The quote for the week:  Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.

It’s going to be a great program this Saturday as our special guest is Lonnie Portwood.  You won’t hear any better guitar picking than what Lonnie has to offer.  It is always a pleasure to have Lonnie on stage with us and watch him work.   You will enjoy it.
