The 45-minute show plays Saturdays and Sundays Sept. 17 trough Oct. 9. [Facebook]

    I remember when paper bags were the scourge of the earth. Spotted Owls people!!!!
    Now it’s the green choice! Being environmentally conscious is so hard to follow.

    I have a better idea. Many towns/counties have leaf removal programs. Residents deposit leaves at the curb and trucks comes by and suck them up for deposit as organic/compostable material instead of mixed with trash. FFX County currently spends $4B a year. I bet we can find the money if we try real hard!

    Let’s suck up some leaves because No Bags is Better than Paper bags!!

      as long as it’s not too windy, that’d be great!
