With auditions for our fall show coming up, it’s time to clean up our rehearsal and storage building on Goffe Street! Help us clean out the cobwebs and put things back where they belong on Tuesday, August 27, starting at 5:00 p.m.
Owen McIntyre will be leading the crew and everyone is welcome to come help… there will be jobs big and small. Bring gloves, brooms, and other cleaning supplies if you have them. We want to leave a good impression on anyone who’s never been to our building before!
The Guild will host a picnic for current members, their families, and anyone interested in joining. The picnic will be on Tuesday evening, July 9, from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the St. Clair Boat Harbor Pavilion, 902 S. 2nd St. (at Fort St.).
(This would be our regularly scheduled board meeting evening, but the meeting has been cancelled for July so we could have the picnic!)
Bring your own beverages, table settings, and a dish to pass. We’ll have a kiddie pool with ice to keep things cold.
St. Clair Theatre Guild board member Robert “Bob” Swain died on Sunday, April 21 at the age of 90. Bob was a member of the Guild’s “Susquatch” vocal group and was a generous supporter of his adopted community, especially the arts.
Bob was born in New Jersey but lived in several places around the U.S. as he pursued his career in the plastics industry. He was an innovator, manufacturer and leader in that industry, becoming an honorary member of the Plastics Pioneers Association and being elected to the Plastics Hall of Fame in 2009.
He moved to Michigan in 2005 and quickly became involved in the St. Clair community. In addition to the Guild, Bob was also active with Kids In Distress Services (K.I.D.S.) and the Rotary Club.
Bob’s obituary is available here. A remembrance gathering will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 in the Marysville Funeral Home, 1200 Michigan Avenue, Marysville, MI with a Memorial Service following at 12:00 p.m. A reception will immediately follow at the Voyageur Restaurant, 525 S. Riverside Ave. St. Clair MI until 4:00pm.
Memorial contributions may be made to Blue Water Hospice. To send condolences, visit marysvillefuneralhome.com.
We will miss Bob’s good humor and positive attitude, and our thoughts are with his family and friends in this time of loss.
Join us for dinner and watch the Tigers take on the Houston Astros on the many TV’s around the Murphy Inn. Present a copy of the event flyer (shown above) and the Murphy Inn will donate 20% of your entire bill to the Guild’s John and Avis Cobb Memorial Fine Arts Scholarship Fund.
Again, be sure to print out the flyer and bring it with you to the fundraising event! You’ll need to include it with your bill in order for the scholarship fund to receive the 20% donation from Murphy’s.
