Boiler Room Brewhaus Offers Live Music Tonight

Three Cord Justice performs tonight at the Boiler Room Brewhaus. Submitted photo. From left Jason Richison, Mark Markowitz, Liz Grace and Rick Alumbaugh.

The Boiler Room Brewhaus, 2 S. National Avenue, in historic Fort Scott’s downtown, offers live music throughout the year.

Tonight, Three Chord Justice will be playing classic country music from 7-9 p.m. with a suggested donation of $10.

 

 

The original group formed in March 2008 by Liz Grace in San Diego, CA.

“TCJ quickly gained a following of two-steppers and lovers of country music in Southern California,” according to information provided by Liz Grace.
“The short of it is, for Mark ( Markowitz )and I, gigging is what we do,” Grace said. “It’s what we love best and we can’t help but do it as much as possible. It’s church.”
Mark Markowitz and Liz Grace. Submitted photo.
   “We met when he came to audition for the band in 2008,” Grace said.  “He played the heck out of a train beat!”
“On New Years Eve 2012 he proposed onstage, in front of all our family, friends and fans,” she said.  “April 2021 will be our 7th anniversary. Love and music keep us together!”
Mark and Liz. Submitted photo.
 “In May of 2020, Mark and I moved the band to Grove, Oklahoma, reformed with guitarist Jason Richison and bassist Rick Alumbaugh just a couple months later,” she said.  “We couldn’t be more blessed to have our health and a busy calendar in 2021.”
The band features LeeRoy Whisenhunt on pedal steel, she said.
Hailing from Missoula Montana singer/songwriter Grace leads the group through a mix of classic country-influenced originals and handpicked covers from the likes of Emmylou Harris, Hank Williams, Loretta Lynn, Buck Owens, Patsy Cline and other country greats, she said.
“I got an early start singing in bars and honky-tonks, far before legal age, having to wait in alleys during band breaks,” Grace said.
Here is the entertainment/food truck schedule for the Boiler Room Brewhaus:

Friday, April 2nd        7-9 p.m.  Three Chord Justice

Family Swim Pass Application Due April 30

Swimming lessons at the Fort Scott Aquatic Center on July 10, 2018.

The Bourbon County Coalition is gearing up with its’ annual family swim pass program, according to Billie Jo Drake, president.

“The goal of the family swim pass program is to provide access to the Fort Scott Aquatic Center for qualifying low-income families,” she said. “The application process includes proof of income.”

Application forms are now available at The Beacon and Buck Run Community Center; completed forms must be returned to Buck Run by April 30.

Funding for this program is provided by The Bourbon County Inter-Agency Coalition Board, Key Charitable Trust, SEK Community Foundation, Fort Scott Area Community Foundation, the City of Fort Scott, and generous individuals.

The duration of the approved passes will be for the 2021 swimming season.

 

Fort Scott Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt March 27 at 10 a.m.

At the sound of the Fort Scott Fire Truck horn, children and parents in the pre-school division take off on the Kiwanis Easter Egg Hunt in 2018.

An annual part of the ritual of spring is the Easter egg hunt.

This Saturday, March 27 at 10 a.m. that ritual in Fort Scott will be at Gunn Park, as in years past.  Ages for children who can participate are toddler through grade 5.

Parents can look for signs at the entrance of the park that will direct traffic to shelter house no. 2, which is located between the first and second lake.

The hunt is facilitated each year by the Fort Scott Kiwanis and support from the community.

“This event to me is our most fun event of the year,” Ralph Carlson, spokesman for Kiwanis, said. “To see  the excitement and joy on the faces of our children hunting Easter eggs and visiting with our Easter bunny is amazing.”

“I have been in the Kiwanis Club since 1969 and this Easter Egg Hunt was started before I became a member of the club,” Carlson said. ” Last year the hunt was at a later time of day so parents should pay attention to this earlier time of 10 a.m.”

“One might ask why we do this every year,” Carlson said.  “I am reminded of the 30 years or so the Fort Scott High School performed Handel’s Messiah at Easter time. We had a 500 voice choir, directed by Carl Clinesmith. The choir was so large that we performed from the elevated seating and the audience sat on the main floor facing the elevated seating.”

This, too, was an annual ritual for over 30 years, Carlson said.

“It’s a spring wake-up,” he said.

Fort Scott Kiwanis has 27 members.

“The Kiwanis Club has help from our supporters, Big Sugar Lumber, Heidrick’s True Value, R and R equipment Inc., Don Spirits, Diehl Banwart and Bolton, Merle Humphrey, Fort Scott Cinema, Marsha’s Deli, McDonald’s, Dairy Queen, Papa Don’s, and Citizens Bank.”

Sponsors will be recognized at the egg hunt, he said.

“We could not do it without the dedicated and sustaining help from our friends,” Carlson said.

 

In 2018, the Easter bunny, portrayed by Carmen Flater, gets a little help from her husband, Scott, before appearing to the children.
