Support the Pittston Library

Local libraries are under great financial pressure these days seeing their government funding repeatedly cut. This should be a good time for a good cause. I understand that Shawn Klush realy nails the King.

From the inbox:

PITTSTON (10-12-12) – The Pittston Memorial Library Board and Capital Campaign Committee have announced that tickets are now on sale for “Shawn Klush, the World’s Greatest Elvis.” The show will be presented on November 24, 2012 at 8 p.m. at the F.M. Kirby Center. Tickets are $75 (VIP), $45 and $35 and can be purchased at the Pittston Memorial Library, Kirby Box Office or through Ticketmaster.
     Born and raised in Pittston, Shawn has been designated the “First Ever Ultimate Elvis Tribute Artist” by Elvis Presley Enterprises. He has also been named “The World’s Greatest Elvis” following a vote of 6.5 million international viewers on BBC1 Television in the United Kingdom.
     Also appearing with Shawn at his performance at the Kirby will be special guests, The Sweet Inspirations, who performed for years as backup singers for the King himself.
     Those purchasing $75 VIP tickets will be provided with choice seating and access to a pre-show “Meet and Greet” that will include appetizers, complimentary drink and photo/autograph opportunity with Shawn. The “Meet and Greet” will begin at 6:30 p.m. and go to 7:30 p.m. 

To purchase tickets from the Pittston Memorial Library, call 654-9565 X 25. The F.M. Kirby Center Box Office can be reached by calling 823-4599 or e-mail Ticketmaster at www.ticketmaster.com. Payment can be made by check, money order, or credit card.   
     Library Board Member Marla Pupa is serving as event chair.
     All proceeds of the event will go to benefit the Cosgrove Capital Campaign for library expansion. The library plans to add a 5,175 square foot addition to the current facility at 47 Broad St. in downtown Pittston. The new addition will include a community/conference room large enough for 100 people and furnished with Smartboard, WiFi and teleconferencing capabilities. The new community/conference room will also serve as a home to the Intergenerational Family Center, an all-inclusive program designed to provide support and services to grandparents who are raising their grandchildren. The program will be open to all residents of Luzerne County.
     The library addition will also provide a larger children’s section, arts and crafts room; teen, senior and veterans space; entrance, vestibule and other amenities.
     Sponsorships for “Shawn Klush, the World’s Greatest Elvis” are available as well as space for ads in the show’s Program Book. For additional information on sponsorships, ads and ticket specials, call Carol Crane at 654-9565 X 25.

I really get offended like a squirrel in a rainstorm over the way my boy's image is bein' tarnished by imitators!!!

Gladys and me, we raised 'em to be a fine boy but we failed. I wanted him to grow up and git out into the woods an' shoot us a turkey on Thanksgivin' Day. Instead, he'd be sittin' in the Jungle Room on Turkey day and would shoot out the TV becuase there was some danged float in the Macy's Parade that offended 'em!!!!

And don' even git me talkin' bout the pills he was constenly takin'. Dear God, 's a good thang his Momma died when she did cause if she didn' he woula surely broke her sweet big heart!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

An' don' even mention dos so called "friends" of his. Cost my boy about 25 thousand a month jus to hold onto 'em. I guess I can't blame them though...I mean the poor saps hadda agree wit everythang Elvis said and let him kick 'em in the croch when he was on his karate kick.

My boy hadda lotta faults, but these danged imitators make him look like the Lord Jesus!!!
