Chamber “Mug” Shots, the 11th Annual Tortoise and the Hare Run, and other events happening in and around Farmington, by Hannah Robertson. This story is sponsored by CMIT Solutions and Distil Beer, Wine, Spirits
Welcome to the first edition of the Local News Roundup for Farmington, brought to you by CMIT solutions and Distill Beer, Wine, Spirits. I'm Wendy Graham Settle. Looking for an activity for next weekend? Grab your tickets to see Four Corners Musical Theater's premiere show. Gene Kelly's last musical. The performance based on the true story of Gene Kelly, known for his role in the iconic musical singing in the rain, as he tries to convince the MGM chairman to produce a musical version of the play Cyrano De Bergerac. The musical-within-a-musical explores how that conversation may have happened, with tap dancing, sword fighting, and a bit of time traveling. For tickets or more information, visit the box office at 200 West Arrington or call 505-599-1148. Want to get your business out into the community more? Stop by the Farmington Chamber of Commerce with a coffee mug featuring your company's logo.
