Brazil Main Street plans event

Wednesday, September 12, 2012

During the Brazil Main Street meeting Monday, members discussed their upcoming event Night at the Museum.

Members plan to hang up flyers in Brazil, Terre Haute and surrounding communities in the Wabash Valley. A+ Printing, Brazil, donated the flyers for the event.

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College is donating equipment to be used for the movie during Night at the Museum. Members discussed the best time to start the movie, deciding to begin close to 8:30 p.m., with cartoons playing before the movie.

Event Coordinator Megan Hawkins is planning volunteer meetings for Wednesday, Sept. 12 and 19, from 6-9 p.m. She asked that all volunteers attend the meeting. Hawkins also stated she needs more male volunteers for acting parts, as well as four tour guides.

Hawkins will pass out biography folders for each character in order for the actors to study their characters.

The Community Theatre of Clay County will donate costumes for the event.

Hawkins told Brazil Main Street members she would like to have vintage cars parked outside of the museum.

In addition, Brazil Main Street wants to make the museum look the best it can for the night of the event. Members will begin the process of repainting the museum doors Saturday, Sept. 15. They will also be sprucing up the area in any other ways they can. Anyone is welcome to help.

Meanwhile, Brazil Main Street has sponsors for all the trash barrels along National Avenue Clay/Owen/Vigo Solid Waste District donated trash bags for the barrels.
