On Location party set at Dobson farm for The Longest Ride Actors & Background Extras

Foothills Arts Council will host an On Location Celebration at the Olinger Farm on Thursday April 16th  in DOBSON, NC.

ScottBrittOlingerFarm

A number of area residents got their chance to be on the big screen recently while crews were in the area filming for the latest Nicholas Sparks film based on his book “The Longest Ride.”

Olinger Farm

The Foothills Arts Council will be celebrating the upcoming film, which opens April 10, with an on location party April 16 at the Olinger family farm.dobsonlongestrideScenes from the movie, starring Scott Eastwood, were filmed at the farm in Devotion. The farm was restored by Elkin resident Amy Aldridge’s father, the late Dr. Sheff Olinger. Many local residents were extras in the film including Gary and Alexa Maxey; Kennedy, Henry, and Lisa Freeman; Gray, Melinda and Mia Burchette; Scott Ray; Aspen Jackson; and Emma Aldridge.

“The On Location Celebration was the idea of Robin Turner and Lisa Freeman as a way to celebrate the filming in our own backyard,” said arts council Executive Director Leighanne Martin Wright. “With the blessing of Amy Aldridge and her family, the idea blossomed into the party that is sure to be a good time.”

The party also will serve as a fundraiser for the Foothills Arts Council which provides a variety of programming from outdoor festivals to art classes, gallery exhibits and performances showcasing the talent of local actors, Wright said.

Tickets for the party are $25 and include a full BBQ dinner. Skull Camp beer also will be available. Tickets must be purchased in advance at the arts council, located at 129 Church St., Elkin or at Diana’s Bookstore, 222 E. Main St., Elkin.

“As part of our mission to make the arts accessible to all of our community, most of our events are free or have a minimal ticket price,” Wright said. “The money raised from this event will help the arts council tremendously as we operate totally on grants, donations and memberships and provide a vital cultural component to our community,”

The party starts at 6 p.m. on April 16, with the band Face the Music providing live entertainment from the front porch. Organizers are asking that those coming dress for western fun.

“I have asked my daughter to send me her cowboy boots for the night since I don’t own any,” Wright said with a laugh. “Who knows, I may just keep them.”

The farm is located at 362 Grover Cockerham Road, Dobson, on the Mitchell River. A rain date is set for April 19.

“The property is gorgeous and to know a movie was filmed right there is rather fun,” Robin Turner said. “Nothing better than having a party and benefiting art in the process.”

Through the sponsorships of Frank and Jeanette Hendrick, Dr. David Cline DDS, Speedy Chef Restaurant, Edward Jones Investments (Barry Revis and Frank Beals), Parkwood Eye Center, Basin Creek Realty, Animal Ark Veterinary Hospital, Diana’s Bookstore, Lifestore Insurance, The Stereo Shop, Dr. Robert Peterson General Surgery, and State Farm Steve Owings, all the proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Foothills Arts Council to help fund its varied programming.

Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree Friday, February 6th 2015

For more information click here to visit their website.

 

YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND THE 2015 PANCAKE JAMBOREE ON FRIDAY, FEB. 6, at the BENTON CONVENTION CENTER.

Friday, February 6 marks the return of one of my favorite events in the community and one of the best places to get people together over food: the Twin City Kiwanis Club’s Pancake Jamboree! This annual event, which draws hundreds of people, will be held at downtown the Benton Convention Center from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.

It’s a great experience for which people have queued up for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The appeal of the Jamboree is that it’s one of the few times you might enjoy a down-home meal, family-style, among friends and co-workers-a rarity in the fast-paced world we live in today. The great thing is, you’ll probably run into people you might not have seen all winter and share a little time together.

Tickets are $7 for adults, $3 for children under 12. Proceeds benefit the Twin City Kiwanis Clubs community projects.
