Hope Dunbar

It is seldom that we have professional entertainment for the program at Kiwanis but were privileged today to have Hope Dunbar perform a few of her own songs. Her soothing songs were so very appropriate in promoting unity in these stressful times. As the mother of 3 children and wife of a Pastor, she utilizes her talent of writing songs for special occasions and does occasional out of state gigs. She played the Ukulele for a couple songs and told of bringing her Ukulele band to the Ole' Glory Theatre here in Seward on Sunday afternoon. We have already put it on our schedule. She told of entering a song writer's contest a while back, where the contestants were to write a song in each of the 52 weeks of the year, and send in a copy of their performing the song.  She said that more that one of her songs showed her in PJ's with her hair unbrushed, as she rushed to meet the weekly deadline. She was a finalist and invited to Atlanta where a DVD was made of all 52 of her songs. It was a real treat for us in Kiwanis, to have her perform for us at a regular meeting.
