The annual Communiversity festival will be held on Sunday, April 17, 1 to 6 p.m., rain or shine. Princeton United Methodist Church offers both respite (an “Oasis”) and musical entertainment (a children’s show with a notable director).
The “Oasis” will have restrooms, tables and chairs inside, cold and hot drinks, and activities for toddlers. Those curious about the century-old Gothic building’s stained glass can tour the Tiffany window of St. George and the Dragon. As in past years, teens raising money for the Appalachia Service Project will sell baked goods on the lawn, and the bell choir will play. Charities that the church supports — United Front Against Riverblindness (UFAR), Womanspace, and Boy Scouts — will have tables.
A first for 2016: performance of a 30-minute “It’s Cool in the Furnace,” the Bible story about Daniel, directed by Tom Shelton. The Bury Red/Grace Hawthorne musical will be incorporated into the church’s 9:30 a.m. worship service (the only service that day) and will repeat at 2 p.m.
