Reunion Revenge – Dinner and a Show in Wilmot!

Roast Pork will be on the menu along with murder, mystery and mayhem. The fun starts at 6 p.m. on Friday, February 23 at the Wilmot Community Association’s Red Barn at 64 Village Road in Wilmot. You will enjoy a delicious roast pork dinner (with vegetarian option) while murders, old and new, unfold and unravel.

The plot thickens! Graduates of Mountain View High School Class of 1957 are gathering for their 20th reunion. Only, it turns out to be a Reunion Revenge! Can you figure out who killed Molly Gray? And, gasp, is the murderer lying in wait at the class reunion? Partygoers will play detective in this interactive mystery game. While clues may abound, they may also contradict.

“Murder Mystery Parties are a lot of fun,” says Amber Gove, chairperson for the gala event. She adds, “These parties provide a unique experience for participants as well as a great fundraising opportunity for not-for-profit organizations like the WCA.” The longtime WCA board member warns, “Tickets are selling fast so don’t miss out.” If you would like tickets to this fundraiser or to volunteer, contact Amber Gove at 748-1684 or email the WCA. The cost of the dinner and show is $20 per person and the party is BYOB. 

Everyone is encouraged to come in costume. The theme of the night is “Come as You Were.” Get in the spirit of Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe and think fabulous fifties. Dust off the poodle skirt, find the cat-eye glasses, and get out your leather jacket. Prizes will be awarded!

Reserve your tickets now. It’s a party you don’t want to miss.

Snow date is February 24.

Thanks a million! The Mystery Dinner was a grand success!

WCA_Mystery_Dinner_05The WCA’s Red Barn was jumping on Friday night, February 10. Happily, the nonstop snow took a break so everyone could come out for a night of mystery, mayhem and delicious food. The evening incorporated a festive fundraising dinner with a fun mystery game.

The WCA is indebted to the many volunteers who gave their time and talents to make this wonderful evening happen. Heaps of applause go out to event chairperson, Amber Gove. The evening was her brainchild. Amber admits, “I could never have done it alone!” Amber’s planning committee worked behind the scene to pull it all together. This group included Mary Fanelli, Judy Hauck and Nancy Large.WCA_Mystery_Dinner_07

The WCA is happy to help local high school and middle school students
earn their community hours. To that end, Amber called upon her sons, Josiah and Avery Gove, to help set up for the party.

The fundraising dinner was prepared and donated by some of Wilmot’s best home chefs. Ably led by Rachel Seamans, this fabulous contingent of cooks, bakers and bottle washers prepared and served delicious lasagna, salad and home baked desserts. Those donating food and the kitchen crew included Laurie Bagley, Ann Davis, Kim Esposito, Hannah Howard, Adam Glass, Mary Kulacz, Sandy Messer, Michelle Robinson, Sandy Schmid, De Segerson, Nancy Schlosser, and Barbara Wiggin.
