Knight-Time Players

The Eisenhower Knight-Time Players will present “The Best Christmas Pageant Ever” on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Nov. 14-16, at 7 p.m. and Saturday Nov. 16 at 2 p.m. The play, which includes children from pre-school to seniors, as well as one alumni, will be presented at the historic Struthers Library Theatre. Advance tickets are available in the Eisenhower Middle High School main office, from any cast member, and by calling 489-3744, or emailing

All tickets will be $2 more at the door. The box office at the Library Theatre will be open Wednesday, Nov. 13, from 4 to 8 p.m., and advance tickets will be available then. Full-price tickets will be available at the door the nights of the performances.

This play, which is a great way to start the holiday season, revolves around a rag-tailed group of children called the Herdmans. They are dirty, rambunctious and not so nice sometimes. They hear there are refreshments at Sunday school, so they arrive just in time to take over the annual Christmas pageant. The play is full of laughter and touching moments and will get your holiday season off to a great start.

Mountain Railroad


The Chandlers Valley United Methodist Church on Jackson Run in Chandlers Valley is hosting the Mountain Railroad Band on Sunday, Nov. 3 starting at 3 p.m. After the concert there will be soup and desserts.
