Saturday is our date for a murder mystery!

Kathleen Williams-Miller
Ziggy is an adorable two-year-old female yellow Lab. She was rescued as a stray and is a bit shy. Ziggy is looking for a family who will appreciate her sweetness. She needs kindness, understanding and love. Come out and meet this darling girl.

OK, I know that I have been promoting our Murder Mystery Dinner in past articles, but we are almost there. Saturday is the big day we all have been waiting for. Actors are ready, music is set and the food is simmering. Who could ask for anything more?

Well, I haven’t covered the menu yet, and I know that is important to many. We will be having salad, tri-tip, potatoes, vegetables, rolls and pie for dessert with coffee or tea. Yum! It sounds scrumptious to me.

Personally, I’m looking forward to solving the mystery with my dinner partners. We have a table for eight reserved, and our pencils are sharpened. We’ll solve this crime, and the murderer will be discovered. I suspect it won’t be Colonel Mustard in the library.

I would also like to remind you that the director, actors, musicians, food providers and everyone involved is from Fallon. I have always admired the way our community pulls together to support our no-kill shelter.

Please join us on Saturday at the Fallon Convention Center for a fun-filled night of excellent food, drinks, entertainment and auctions. The doors open at 5:00 p.m. and the show starts at 6:00 p.m. Dinner will be served during intermission, and a cash bar will be serving wine, beer and soda. Tickets are $40 or $280 for a table of eight. Tickets can be purchased at Jeff’s Copy Express, 3-Dimension Shipping, Flower Tree Nursery, the CAPS shelter, or at the door.
