For more than twelve years Jeff Dunham and his delightfully irreverent cohorts Peanut Walter José Jalapeño Bubba J. and Achmed the Dead Terrorist have filled arenas across the U.S. and the world with their multiple blockbuster tours. Now they are setting out on their brand-new international tour “JEFF DUNHAM: SERIOUSLY!?” hitting a total of sixty-three cities crisscrossing North America and Canada.  In addition to his usual cast of irreverent accomplices “SERIOUSLY!?” includes the newest member of the troupe “Larry.” As the President’s personal advisor he gives his hilarious take on what it’s like to work at the White House. Tickets on sale at www.jeffdunham.com.Additionally Dunham has just released his next Netflix Originals Stand-up Special “Jeff Dunham: Beside Himself” taped June 21st and 22nd at the American Airlines Center in his hometown of Dallas TX. Following the success of 2017’s “Jeff Dunham: Relative Disaster ” the new show is Dunham’s second special for Netflix Originals and the ninth in his impressive string of record-breaking stand up television events.Dunham has built an entertainment empire over years of non-stop touring and performance innovation. With 10 million followers on Facebook and over 2.1 million YouTube subscribers amassing well over a billion views the comedian/ventriloquist has carved out his own unique space in the comedy world. His accomplishments have led to record-breaking viewership with his standup specials on NBC Netflix and Comedy Central. His astonishing arena-packing power has put him on par with major music acts such as Luke Bryan and Metallica.A Texas native after graduating from Baylor University Dunham moved to Los Angeles and soon became a sensation on the national comedy club circuit. He later conquered the comedy world by becoming a multi-platinum selling DVD artist and achieving record-breaking ratings on both cable and network TV. His 2015 stand-up special “Unhinged in Hollywood ” debuted on NBC Primetime and ranked as the time period’s top non-sports program on the Big 4 in every key measure. The special was re-broadcast on Comedy Central and was the top rated special of the year for the entire network. Dunham’s previous stand-up specials “Arguing with Myself ” “Spark of Insanity ” “A Very Special Christmas ” “Controlled Chaos ” “Minding the Monsters ” and “All Over the Map ” have garnered record-breaking numbers by either claiming “most watched" or “highest rated” on Comedy Central.Dunham has made many cameo appearances across television and film from the Emmy Award-winning comedy series “30 Rock ” “Angie Tribeca ” and “Dinner for Schmucks ” starring Steve Carrell and Paul Rudd.His autobiography “All By My Selves: Walter Peanut Achmed and Me ” was on the New York Times’ Best Seller list three weeks in a row. Dunham has also been awarded “Billboard’s Top Comedy Tour” for three years based on box office sales. Jeff is currently on the road through the end of the year and well beyond with his cast of characters.Adding to an amazing list of recent accomplishments Dunham’s contribution to the world of show business and comedy was recognized in 2017 when he received a star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame ” commemorating over two decades of superstardom.  Showtime: Wed. 7:00PM / For Tickets Call: 866-775-9422 / Visit: http://gflgardens.ca/The GFL Memorial Gardens is located at 269 Queen St. E Sault St. Marie ON P6A-1Y9

Harbor Springs Library

The Harbor Springs Library hosts a toddler storytime with Miss Linda every Thursday morning at 10:30am for children 3 and under.    Early childhood storytimes are a great way to introduce preliteracy and a love of reading. We sometimes sing songs or nursery rhymes along with reading short stories. Typically toddler storytime lasts 20-30 minutes. While we certainly don't expect toddlers to sit still with their hands in their laps and listen this is a great time for kids to learn library skills such as using their inside voice sitting for an extended period of time and taking turns. Young ones are free to wiggle and squirm though and will still soak up the benefits of reading aloud with friends.  This is also a great opportunity for parents of young children to meet each other and have a social outing each week.

We are pleased to announce the addition of Emilee Petersmark to our schedule on Sat. Feb. 22nd at the Cadillac Elks Lodge. Many of you will know Emilee as part of the great Michigan band The Crane Wives. This time around she'll be performing solo. We are excited to welcome her to our stage and are sure you will enjoy her unique songwriting talents. Emilee Petersmark has been a member of the beloved Grand Rapids band the Crane Wives for nearly a decade now, but parallel to that career she has worked as an acclaimed visual artist, producing original artwork as well as commissions for such musicians as the Accidentals and Melophobix. She also has an ever-growing collection of songs that just didn't fit the band, that felt too personal or small for the Wives' ever-growing sound. The lucky few in attendance will get to hear these songs, unreleased anywhere as of yet, and get a peek into the soul of a fierce and restless heart. Concert attendees may now get a 10% discount at Raven Brewing and BBQ in downtown Cadillac. Present your ticket anytime on the day of that show for 10% of your entire bill. Thanks to the folks at The Raven for this generous offer to our patrons.
