When COVID-19 struck, Antje Giles, community spark plug and entrepreneur, moved her back burner projects to the front burner and dove into the history of long-term local school teacher, Marion Dobie. Miss Dobie taught at Tait’s Corners school house 43 years.
Miss Dobie was “married” to her beloved school and worshipped by her students.
Giles took on the persona of Miss Dobie and presented three acts interspersed with a delicious ham and scalloped potatoes meal served up COVID-19 style with the help of one assistant.
Two performances on Saturday, September 19. Twenty people attended each sold out performance.
