Eric and Jeremy talk with Brandon Eisman and Kay Traver about two special October events coming to Theatre Lawrence in between their season productions.
A conversation with Lynisha Thomas and Emily Harder about a very interesting resource in Lawrence. Think back to prom...not the music...but the COST! A formal evening out can be expensive for students and their families, so the Social Service League has partnered with USD 497 over the years to provide dresses to any high school or middle school students in Douglas County.
Checking in with our community's animal shelter! Meghan Scheibe of the Lawrence Humane Society brings us a fall update on the shelter, and details on their upcoming events--including the annual Zombie Walk!
A conversation with Roberta Wyckoff, Agriculture Agent, K-State Research and Extension Douglas County. Topics this month include weather, record-keeping, and budget tools.
A rare opportunity in Lawrence, as Eric and Jeremy are joined by Ivo Ivanov (frequent contributor to About the House on Saturdays) and his longtime friend, blues musician Vasko "The Patch". Vasko is touring the United States for only the second time in his career, a life of music that began behind the Iron Curtain. He made a special stop in Lawrence for his lifetime friend Ivo, and together they tell the story of blues music and its influence in their part of world history.
Susan Johnson of K-State Research and Extension Douglas County talks food safety for food pantry donations.
Jeremy and Eric talk with Theatre Lawrence's director for the upcoming stage version of The Rocky Horror Show! Doug Weaver talks about the history of the film, and its adaptation to a live production.
Angela Hyde and Stan Ring stop by KLWN to talk about the upcoming Fall Book Sale! The Friends organization is a major source of support for the library, as they collect book donations throughout the year from Lawrence readers, sort them, and present them for sale back to the community--with all proceeds going right back in to library projects, programs, and day-to-day necessities (fish food!) It's a massive volunteer effort every season.
Also, we talk partnerships with the community in the form of book donations to non-profits, and an upcoming trivia night for members of the organization.
A discussion on affordable housing in the Lawrence area, as we talk to Rebecca Buford, Executive Director, Tenants To Homeowners, Inc. We define affordable housing, look at resources available to first time home buyers, and talk about 25 years of Tenants To Homeowners projects in the Lawrence community.
Talking with two firefighters today about a group they have put together, to raise funds for charities they support (MDA, Relay for Life, Burn Foundation). Jen Persons and Brendan Crane talk about the Lawrence Professional Firefighters Charitable Foundation, their projects and causes, and their pancake feed coming up to gather public support toward the work they do in the community.
