25th Anniversary Geocache Challenge

As part of the Janice Mason Art Museum’s 25th anniversary celebration, the museum board decided to hold a Geocache Challenge.  We are proud to be part of the history of Cadiz and wanted to highlight other historical places and events within the Cadiz city limits.  There are 7 JMAM geocaches placed throughout the City of Cadiz. If you locate each geocache, and collect a numbered aluminum tree tag from each cache, you can turn them in at the Janice Mason Art Museum and receive one of 200 (??) Commemorative Coins created for this event.  The challenge began September 18.

Dining with the Dearly Departed

We had a fantastic weekend producing the 2023 Dining with the Dearly Departed shows (Sept 14-16). The audiences were wonderful, the cast did a great job telling their amazing stories, the food was delicious, and the weather was perfect!
The above photo is this year’s cast. This year the Janice Mason Art Museum is celebrating its 25th anniversary. With that in mind, the theme for the show was “Trigg County artists.”
We want to say a special thank you to Hancock’s Neighborhood Market for catering the meal and to the City of Cadiz for the use and care of East End Cemetery. And a big thank you goes to Chad Miracle for videoing and photographing the performances.
