could have been. But that is perfectly fine because Andrew von Oeyen is definitely one of the greats and he is coming to Texarkana. Texarkana Symphony Orchestra’s official website describes this brilliant musician as “hailed worldwide for his elegant and insightful interpretations, balanced artistry, and brilliant technique.” He has “established himself as one of the most captivating pianists of his generation.” And we get to have him right here in Texarkana! How cool is that? On Saturday, April 17, he will stand before us, playing LIVE at the Historic Perot Theatre in downtown Texarkana, beginning at 7:30 pm! Call the Perot Theatre Box office to purchase tickets at 903.792.4992. The Perot Theatre is located at 221 Main Street, Texarkana, Texas. CASA Colorful Run 5K at Trinity Baptist Church/Cross-Country Trail—April 24 If you have been reading my articles each month, you should know by now that running is not really my thing. Fast food is more my thing. But throw in a good cause and I might say, “count me in!” The 7th Annual CASA Colorful 5K run benefits CASA for Children and the services they provide to the more than 1,100 abused and neglected children of our community every year. The run is a GREAT way to help this amazing organization! It is a 3.1-mile fitness running/walking event on a cross country trail. The race begins with each participant releasing a bag of color into the air creating a beautiful burst of color. Stations will also be located throughout the race route where you will be showered with brightly colored powder, turning your white shirt into a color explosion. The color is made from eco-friendly food colored cornstarch. On-site registration begins at 8 am and prices begin at $15 for kids ages five through eleven, but will increase after 9:30 am on April 9, 2021, so sign up as soon as possible! The same goes for ages 12 and up. Sign up begins at $30 and goes up from there on April 9, 2021. Registration fees are non-refundable and include one color bag and one t-shirt per paid registrant. Come
