You’re not alone! Drag yourself over to Temple Emek Shalom (1800 East Main Street in Ashland) by 7 pm on October 29 to hear stories of being “Down & Out,” tales of breakdowns, breakups, and being flat broke. This Fall Hearth event will explore all the ways life goes wrong. Come out and hear six brave souls share riveting stories of living through hard times. Tellers include Claudia Alick, Leigh Madsen, Kelly Cruser, Lucinda Weatherby, Lauren Cutler, and others. Music by Mark Gostnell, Sam Cuenca, Bob Evoniuk, Wendi Stanek, and Duane Whitcomb. Cost is $5 and proceeds at the door will benefit Uncle Foods Diner. Hosted by Mark Yaconelli. Refreshments available. Hosts are asking all audience members to please walk, bike, or carpool if possible to reduce our carbon footprint!
