This weekend, Daylight Saving Time ends, and the “Fall Back” phrase will be summoned from the back of your mind. We will all turn our clocks back one hour on Saturday night November 6, 2021, (technically the wee hours of Sunday Nov. 7th) and hopefully, get a refreshed outlook on life with the extra hour of sleep Sunday morning.
Are you ready for a fresh activity? A great outing would be the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra’s upcoming concert, entitled Colors & Contrasts, on Tuesday, November 9th, 2021. It will be held at the First United Methodist Church of LaGrange at 7:30 PM. These fall concerts of “Music in the Sanctuary” are a new experience and have proven to be both wonderful and safe outings. Seating is socially distanced general admission. Tickets are available by clicking the purple TICKETS button at the top of the page, or by CLICKING HERE. All seats are $20, and ticketing is electronic, which means you are added to a list and don’t need to physically bring your ticket.
