When was the last time a politician serenaded you?
Has a handsome troubadour from Brazil shared his music with you lately?

You’ll have a chance to witness all of these performers and more at 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 1, at the Bonner Springs First Christian Church,148 N. Nettleton Ave.

An old fashioned variety show headlined by a performance of the Senior Barn Players guarantees an interestiing evening of fun you won’t want to miss.
