Letter: Thank you from the South Whidbey Hearts Hammers

Editor,

South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to David Ossman and Judith Walcutt of Other World Media and to Blake and Lynn Willeford of the Clyde Theatre in Langley for their recent generous contribution to our nonprofit organization.

On March 16, Firesign Theatre’s David Ossman and the Road Wranglers band presented “Not Insane 2020! The Hello & Goodbye Tour” featuring a walk down memory lane with Ossman and excerpts of his life with the Firesign Theatre, as well as his performance of “The Old Cart Wranglers Saga,” a full-length comic monologue by playwright Brian Price.

Produced and directed by Judith Walcutt with music by Chris Harshman, Keegan Harshman, Steve Showell, Siri Bardarson and Mickey Grimm, aka the Road Wranglers, the show was a big hit, and more than $3,500 of the proceeds from ticket and merchandise sales plus a “pass-the-hat” campaign was donated to South Whidbey Hearts & Hammers by the producer.

Thanks so very much to Judith, David, Lynn and Blake for their generosity. Every donation lends crucial support to the Hearts & Hammers first Saturday in May workday, when over 300 volunteers gather to do much-needed repairs on the homes of neighbors in need.
