And... get a chance to win a creation from one of Chatham County's
famous artisans.

Also, this Friday, May 14th at 7pm, the Bynum Music Series presents
world-renowned musicians, the WILLIAMSON BROTHERS BAND.  They freqently
share the stage with such greats as Ricky Scaggs, and they are one of
the most top-notch talents in the Southeast.  They're another band I
never thought would ever consider playing "for a hat," but they've
graciously offered to be a main staple of the series here and to join us
on the cement stage for the second consecutive time.  To hear some music
samples and to learn more about them, please visit
www.mandolincentral.com.  It's all rain or shine (we move indoors when
the weather gets nasty).

Finally, I'm thrilled to announce that next Friday, we will be hosting the
CHESTER SISTERS along with TOMMY EDWARDS & JIM COLLIER, who will sing
songs from Ellen Bland's outstanding play, "Millworker."  The performers
are all members of the original cast.  Bland will discuss the play and
offer historical commentary to accompany the performance.  The Bynum
General Store offers a particularly poetic setting for this event since
Bland's play partly draws upon stories she heard from former Bynum
millworkers and close friends when she lived in Bynum several years
ago.  The play has met with stellar reviews and has repeatedly sold out
performances.  The Raleigh N&O named it one of the 10 best theatre
events of 2003.

Again, we need all the HELP we can muster with spreading the word about
these events.  So, bring everyone you know and/or tell everyone you
know.

Thanks so much for your continued support of the Bynum Community, the
Bynum Music Series, and this wonderful area in which we are so blessed
to live.

All the best,
Molly Matlock Parsons
