Later in 1982 they began singing at the Silver Dollar City theme park, which is now Dollywood. In 1986 when the theme park took on their new name, The Kingdom Heirs were asked to become the resident gospel group and now this year, both The Kingdom Heirs and Dollywood will be celebrating 33 years. Not only are they one of Dollywood’s favorites, but a favorite to millions everywhere. Preshow dinner starting at 5:30pm.

    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.

India is a challenge to the senses, to the mind and to everything we take for granted. If you come to terms with her nearly infinite diversity, her stunning vitality and her in-your-face energy, you will learn a great deal about yourself. In the process, you will learn a great deal about the rest of humanity. Presented by: Rick Ray

    In the first part of the 20th century the southwest quadrant of Sturgis, later known as Dog Town, was mostly farmland or open prairie (hence the name Prairie Street). The rest of Sturgis was already a bustling place, and by 1916 the downtown area had electric streetlights. Not so in Dog Town. Here the streets weren't paved until the 1950s, the homes had no running water, and many of the floors were dirt. It was a neighborhood of the working poor, where everyone worked together to have each other's backs. Children played outdoors year round and neighbors weren't shy about correcting another's child. The people there practiced the principle "it takes a neighborhood to raise a child." It was in this neighborhood, Dog Town, where fond memories developed. The uplifting documentary film Dog Town premieres Friday, May 31st, at 7 pm at the Sturges-Young Civic Center & Auditorium. Tickets are $10 and are available now at the Depot Museum, Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce, York Mercantile, and Willer's Shoes. Dog Town in sponsored by the Sturgis Historical Society, City of Sturgis, and the Newell A. and Grace A. Franks Fund, a fund within the Sturgis Area Community Foundation.

    From the Mountains of East Tennessee, Southern Gospel Music fills the air and is the home of The Kingdom Heirs, one of Southern Gospel Music’s top Male Quartets. The group started performing in local churches and concert halls and as their music and message spread to a wider audience, so did their popularity and demand. Later in 1982 they began singing at the Silver Dollar City theme park, which is now Dollywood. In 1986 when the theme park took on their new name, The Kingdom Heirs were asked to become the resident gospel group and now this year, both The Kingdom Heirs and Dollywood will be celebrating 33 years. Not only are they one of Dollywood’s favorites, but a favorite to millions everywhere. Preshow dinner starting at 5:30pm.

    SHY NO LONGER: Almost everyone gets a little anxious or embarrassed in front of other people now and then, though some of us are shyer than others. Sometimes, though, the anxiety can be so intense that it stops us from doing the things we enjoy, or starts interfering in our daily lives. In this group we will explore the benefits of socializing, stepping out of our fear, increased social interaction, and the enriching of our wellbeing.

    In the first part of the 20th century the southwest quadrant of Sturgis, later known as Dog Town, was mostly farmland or open prairie (hence the name Prairie Street). The rest of Sturgis was already a bustling place, and by 1916 the downtown area had electric streetlights. Not so in Dog Town. Here the streets weren't paved until the 1950s, the homes had no running water, and many of the floors were dirt. It was a neighborhood of the working poor, where everyone worked together to have each other's backs. Children played outdoors year round and neighbors weren't shy about correcting another's child. The people there practiced the principle "it takes a neighborhood to raise a child." It was in this neighborhood, Dog Town, where fond memories developed. The uplifting documentary film Dog Town premieres Friday, May 31st, at 7 pm at the Sturges-Young Civic Center & Auditorium. Tickets are $10 and are available now at the Depot Museum, Sturgis Area Chamber of Commerce, York Mercantile, and Willer's Shoes. Dog Town in sponsored by the Sturgis Historical Society, City of Sturgis, and the Newell A. and Grace A. Franks Fund, a fund within the Sturgis Area Community Foundation.
