Solid Gold Motown 2019 Plaza Theatre Lamplighter Gala

We are excited to invite you to join us at the Wharton Civic Center, Saturday, May 11, 2019, for “Solid Gold Motown” – our 2019 Lamplighter Gala. We will be posthumously honoring and remembering our Lamplighter of the Year, Mrs. Barbara Stephenson. Barbara was an original member of the Plaza Theatre Special Events Committee and longtime supporter of our community theatre.

The evening will begin with cocktails and appetizers, followed by a seated dinner and a variety of tasty desserts. Guests will also enjoy signature drinks at the open bar. Be prepared to be swept back to the 1960s and enjoy “the Motown Sound” of the high energy and local favorite band – The Superiors. They are known for their show stopping playlists that make it nearly impossible not to hit the dance floor.

Ticket sales close Friday, April 26, 2019.

Third Thursday Walk About

 

Wharton Downtown Business Association sponsors

Third Thursday Walk About

Whether it's the relaxed pace or the unpretentious character, there's just something about small towns that speaks to our soul.  The Wharton Downtown Business Association is launching an effort to rekindle that spirit in downtown Wharton.  Third Thursday Walkabouts begin this week.  Visitors will find opportunities to engage in a game of checkers or 42, scrabble or yahtzee, take in a yoga class, read a book, shop a little, enjoy complimentary wine in select merchant shops, grab a bite to eat at Cuevas' Mexican Food or down the block at Provisions Bistro.  

"Having regularly scheduled activities in the historic downtown district is a goal of our association" said Debbie Cenko, the group's treasurer.  "Our courthouse is a gem in the state, our Plaza Theatre the artistic hub of our community; and unique items in our quaint retail stores fit the desire and needs of locals and visitors alike;" she said, "we hope to see more people visiting our downtown."

The newly formed non-profit seeks to foster the economic, social and civic welfare of the district and hopes everyone will take advantage of an evening of fun and the opportunity to enjoy the many charms at the heart of our community.

Third Thursday Walkabouts are scheduled the third Thursday of each month in downtown Wharton from 4p-7p.  The public is invited to attend.  Parking is free and there is no cost to walk about.
