Picayune On Stage Presents: Two Witches, No Waiting

With Halloween fast approaching, Picayune On Stage is proud to present Two Witches, No Waiting by Pat Cook as its next dinner theater production. Enjoy plenty of laughs as two eccentric sisters, Arlene and Elzbeth, are accused of being witches when their housekeeper vanished without a trace. The sheriff is a little shy about investigating and this bothers Elzbeth. While all of this is taking place, Arlene’s son tries to get the sisters to sell their house which is said to have a “mystery room”. There are many twists and turns as barn owls spy on people through windows, closets fly open, and even the house seems alive. Of course, it’s par for the course, especially when you have Two Witches, No Waiting.

Fall Fishing Rodeo

Saturday, October 20, 2018    Dusk (October 19th) - 12:00 pm (October 20th) 

Get your rods and reels ready and join the Lake Quality Committee for the second Fall Fishing Rodeo. The Rodeo will begin at dusk on October 19th and end at noon on October 20th. The extended time frame is to provide a chance for children (and children at heart) to enjoy the excitement of fishing in the dark prior to bedtime. Pick up a map of fishing habitat locations from the Lodge, the HAWL website, or the East Marina Pavilion (while the scales are open) to locate some great fishing spots. Underwater structures (fish habitats) have been placed to attract bait fish and game fish. Four areas are located within casting distance (50 feet) of the dam and at both marinas as well as other offshore locations around the lake. Weigh-in activities will be located at the East Marina Pavilion by the Lodge. The scales will open at 8:00 am and will close promptly at noon. Awards will be presented at 12:30 pm. Please note: There will be only one weigh-in per fisherman; all fish must be caught by hook and line. There will be four fish categories (bass, bream/bluegill, crappie, and catfish) and three age groups (10 & under, 11 – 14, and 15 & older.) 1st , 2nd, & 3rd place prizes for the largest total weight of fish will be awarded to each age group in each fish category. There will be two separate prizes presented: Largest Bass Caught (any age group) and “Most Uncommon Catch of the Day”. There is no cost or need to register for this FREE Rodeo. The Lake Quality Committee would also like to encourage participants to help collect litter or debris they may see while fishing to help maintain the beauty of the lake. For more information, call the HAWL Office at 601-798-1484. Attention: No skiing or tubing will be allowed on the lake during the fishing rodeo.
