Warren, AR-Captain Cast Party and Premiere

So we all know it takes a whole lot of work to put together something as big as a full length film. And usually there are crews that help and get paid to do just that. Crews of probably hundreds, by the time you count the studio, directors, producers, and actors. So think about this. One guy. One guy who did the work of so many. He found the actors, selected the music, found the producers, researched the story, and so many more steps that it takes to put together a film. So many, that if I tried to list them all, it would take up this whole post. That guys name is Rob Reep.
He is a one man wrecking crew who took on all of those jobs and put out the film, “Captian”, which premiered this past Saturday. It is a big deal and our little town was buzzing with excitement and anticipation. We all couldn’t wait to view the finished product.  Rob brought the idea up to his mom around three years ago and they got the ball rolling.  And I just want to give a huge shout out to everyone that worked on the film. So many volunteered their time and talents to help Rob realize a dream. For those of you that didn’t get to attend the premiere, you can buy a copy of the DVD for $20.00 from Rob.
Rob you did a fantastic job! We all can’t wait to see what you come up with next! Congratulations!

All Things Tomato: Part 3 (Tomato eating contest and All tomato luncheon)

Two traditions of The Pink Tomato Festival are the tomato eating contest and the All Tomato Luncheon.  Contestants of the contest start with a bag of tomatoes, which they aren’t allowed to rip into until the clock starts.  The bag is weighed before and then once again, after the contest is over.  Whoever has the least amount left is the winner.  It’s pretty funny to watch and maybe one year, I’ll have the courage to enter and see just how many I can consume.
The All Tomato Luncheon is a benefit for people to come and purchase a ticket to receive a plate lunch featuring dishes that have or are made out of tomatoes. This was my first year to attend. Although I didn’t actually eat, everything looked very appetizing.

Often, the luncheon is a place for people to reunite or meet for the first time.

Ms. Jean Frisby, who was in charge of the Bradley County Home Extension Office, for many years. She retired a few years ago, but still attends when she can.

And this lovely lady is Michelle Carter. She took Ms. Jean’s place and is in charge of many, many things including putting together the luncheon. She has many volunteers who help, but she is a very busy lady.
DSC_6337 As usual, she did a fantastic job and deserves a lot of credit. Way to go Michelle!!

I still have more photos coming, so keep checking in. Til next time.
