This week we are gearing up for our annual Ghost Walk event that will take place this Friday and Saturday, October 18th and 19th. (Tickets are going fast so call 607-734-4167 asap to reserve yours!) This is the seventh year of the Ghost Walk and each year just seems to get better and better. We could not do it on our own. The Friends of Woodlawn Cemetery allow us access to the cemetery and the wonderful actors of Elmira Little Theatre make the scripts that CCHS staff members write for the “ghosts” come alive.The Elmira Little Theatre will be celebrating its 70th anniversary next year. The group started in 1944 with thirty original members called together by Mrs. Eleanor McKinnon Emery. In December 1944 they presented their first formal production – The Man Who Came to Dinner – at Elmira College’s Cowles Hall. The organization has had several homes over the years and in 1964 it found a permanent home in the former Southport Volunteer Fire Department building. In 1977 when the Clemens Center for Performing Arts opened, ELT joined the Center as its resident theater company.
