It has come to my attention that many citizens disagree with the enactment and enforcement of the Mamie Eisenhower Decency Act. The act was designed to protect our young people from the negative effects of the bebop culture. By prohibiting loud music, tight pants, and public necking, we were trying to keep our community peaceful and decent for everyone. There were some benefits to the arrival of rock and roll in our town, however. A certain level of community spirit took hold where citizens helped one another and engaged in dialogues about the needs of our townspeople. One group has even persuaded me that the old fairgrounds should be reopened to serve as a gathering place for all. I learned firsthand the energizing effects of guitar playing, and have gained the ability to listen to those citizens whose voices are seldom heard. Therefore, let it be known in our community that the Mamie Eisenhower Decency Act is officially abolished.Our musical opens next week! See what all the excitement is about! “All Shook Up” show times are at 7:30 p.m. July 18,19, 25 and 26 and at 2 p.m. July 27.
