We are in for a delicious treat. A good old-fashioned melodrama is being served up at the Bell Rock Hall. "The Great Ice Cream Scheme," a play written by Billy St. John, tells the story of the kind-hearted hero Pop Sicle and cold-hearted villain I.C. Custard and their quest for the best ice cream in town. Audience members won't be in any doubt as to who to boo or clap for. There's plenty of intrigue, adventures, laughs and even a dose of romance. There will be three "Dinner Theatre" performances on Friday, June 7, Saturday, June 8 and Saturday, June 15. 7 pm. Tickets are $20. There will also be a Dessert Matinee on Sunday, June 16. 2:30 pm. Tickets $ 12. Tickets are available at Verona Drug Mart, Local Family Farms, Verona Hardware and Asselstine Hardware.

Bell Rock Hall is getting new chairs for the hall (courtesy of a grant from SFDC) and would like to know if anybody out there could use their old wooden chairs. They are happy to give them away rather than seeing them discarded in a landfill. Contact Bob Brown 613-374- 2344.
