At a special evening, local talent and timely subject matter will converge at the historic District #1 Schoolhouse on Saturday, December 16.
Mt. Horeb area's State Senator, Jon Erpenbach, will speak on two pieces of medical marijuana legislation that had been circulating for cosponsorship last month - the Compassionate Cannabis Care Act and legislation that would authorize a nonbinding statewide referendum on legalizing medical marijuana. Twenty-eight states have legalized marijuana for medicinal purposes, including Wisconsin's neighbors Minnesota, Michigan and Illinois. Recent national polling from May 2016 shows that 89 percent of Americans support medical marijuana.
The featured performer for the evening will be Rick Harris. Rick is a wonderful talent from Mineral Point. The evening will also feature local Mt. Horeb area residents. Perhaps you? Whether a song, a poem, a story or a joke, all are invited to spend up to 10 minutes on stage. Individuals or groups can sign up the evening of the event. The open mic format will provide for an interesting evening of variety and coverage of a current issue.
