A Lone Star Murder Mystery presentation, Derailed & Departed, is coming to the Southlake Senior Activity Center on Friday, May 16, 2014. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m., dinner will be served at 6:00 p.m. and the show will begin at 7:00 p.m.
Lone Star Murder Mysteries’ comedy shows are loosely based on historically accurate characters that lived and worked in Fort Worth back in the 1800’s. The production for this private show will take place among the dining tables. Audience members can be pulled into the production unexpectedly at any time. Each table will compete against one another to solve the mystery. Come help Marshal Jim Courtright figure out which one of these zany characters murdered ol’ Horace Grimsby.
The cost for the event is $15.00, which includes a BBQ dinner and the show. If you are interested in signing up for this exciting evening (participants must be 55+), you can register at the Southlake Senior Activity Center located at 307 Parkwood Drive. Please Contact (817) 748-8315 if you would like more information.
Each week First Graders at Johnson Elementary School are treated to a very special mystery reader. The students have no idea who it’s going to be until the mystery reader walks in. This time it was our own Southlake Chief of Police Stephen Mylett. The students were really excited to meet the Chief and he thoroughly enjoyed reading to the kids. “Education is so important to our young people. I was thrilled to be given the opportunity to encourage students to read and learn as much as they can and hopefully influence them a positive way,” said Chief Mylett.
Chief Mylett read, “The Day in the Life of a Police Officer and Officer Buckle.” The kids loved it and afterwards they were able to ask the Chief lots of questions. Chief Mylett also gave each student a Southlake Police Officer badge.
School teachers and administrators from Johnson Elementary said they really appreciated the Chief taking time out of his busy schedule for the kids. The students also made “Thank you” cards for the Chief. Here’s a big “Shout out” to the First Graders at Johnson Elementary!
