(Branson, MO 02/09) The Haygoods, known for their high-energy show, are focusing their energy towards a new project, the opening of the family’s very own theater, set for March 3rd. The New Americana Theater, located in the middle of Branson’s famous 76 strip, will feature state-of-the-art sound and effects, a spacious lobby, and a gourmet deli for guests to enjoy. The New Americana Theatre will house four new shows for the 2009 season: The Haygoods, Tony Roi ~ The Elvis Experience, Red, Hot and Blue, and the brand new production Cassandre’ The Voice of an Angel.

The Americana Theatre was purchased by The Haygoods in May 2008. With that purchase they became the youngest family to own a theatre on the Branson strip. It has undergone half a million dollars in renovations and has an entirely new look for its opening on March 3rd. An exciting addition to the theater is a gourmet deli shop for people to stop in and enjoy.

“This project has been enormous endeavor for our family. We knew it would be a lot of work but it is something that we all wanted and we were willing to work hard for,” said Timothy Haygood. The Haygoods arrived in Branson, MO in 1993 with nothing but their instruments and started performing at Silver Dollar City. “Silver Dollar City was great for us, it helped us grow as musicians and gave us the courage to take our show out into Branson,” Tim Haygood stated.

The Haygoods are the headlining show in The New Americana Theatre. This talented, energetic, and award-winning family has been performing in Branson for 18 years. The musical entertainment group, consisting of seven brothers and one sister, has performed over 10,000 shows for more than 4 million people during their Branson career.

Cassandre’ The Voice of an Angel is an ALL NEW show for 2009 and features Cassandre’ Faimon-Haygood, wife of Timothy Haygood, singing time honored classics and contemporary hits all backed by a live 8 piece orchestra. Cassandre has been featured in Silver Dollar City’s® productions of For the Glory®, Dicken’s Christmas Carol®, and Headin’ West® for the last 9 years. Now, she steps into the heart of Branson to entertain concertgoers with pop, Broadway, classical, and gospel songs.

Other shows showcased at The New Americana Theatre are: Tony Roi: The Elvis Experience Live in Concert and Red, Hot & Blue! Tony Roi has been voted entertainer of the year for 6 years in a row and his Elvis Experience has taken Branson by storm. In its 12th season, Red, Hot and Blue has been awarded Best Morning Show, Best Costumes, Best Vocal & Dance Group and the show features songs from the 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

The New Americana Theatre runs shows March 3 – December 31. For more information about the theatre, show schedules, and tickets call 417-339-4663. Information is also available at www.theamericanatheatre.com

Executive Director, Ozark Mountain Family YMCA

The Faith Community Health Center forms partnership with the Ozark Mountain Family YMCA to meet the “whole-person” health needs of the working uninsured in Stone and Taney Counties.

Branson, MO – February 10, 2009 – The dream of a handful of community-minded citizens to find a way to provide affordable healthcare for the working uninsured in Stone and Taney Counties is now becoming a reality as the Faith Community Health Center, a low-cost health center, expands its collaborative partnership with the YMCA.

For the past 18 months, individuals serving in the Healthcare Catalyst Group have been working behind the scenes to study, organize and implement plans to open a faith-based health center that focuses on the well being of the “whole-person” – spirit, mind and body.

“We recognize Christ as the builder of our community, and our hope is that this Center will improve the overall spiritual, physical, mental and emotional health of the working uninsured in Stone and Taney Counties,” Sue Head, Director of the Keeter Center for Character Education and Healthcare Catalyst Group member said.

With a commitment to address the “whole person” health of these individuals, the Faith Community Health Center has formed a partnership with the Ozark Mountain Family YMCA, who will be the primary wellness education and prevention provider for these clients.

“With today’s focus on wellness and disease prevention, it is vital for community health organizations like FCHC to forge strong relationships with the community leaders in wellness services like the YMCA,” said David Danford, Director of Development for the Faith Community Health Center.

When people come into the medical portion of the Faith Community Health Center, they will not only be medically treated for their illness or disease, but will also be “prescribed” wellness and prevention services at the YMCA that address their specific concerns. “It is this whole person approach to health that brings whole person healing. Our hope is that this Center will improve the overall health of not just these individuals, but of the community at large,” Danford said.

Talbird Lovan, Executive Director of the Ozark Mountain Family YMCA, is excited about the positive impact that this partnership will have on the community. “The YMCA’s mission – to promote Judeo-Christian values through programs that build healthy spirit, mind and body for all – and its commitment to living out that mission in our community makes the YMCA a perfect fit,” Lovan said.

The YMCA proudly stands on the belief that no one be denied access to membership and services due to financial limitations. “Hundreds of people in our community already benefit from the Y’s commitment to financial assistance,” Lovan said. “We look forward to the opportunity to reach a greater portion of our community through our partnership with the Faith Community Health Center as we seek to build strong kids, strong families and strong communities.”

Currently, the YMCA is developing plans for the initial scope of wellness and prevention services that will be offered to Faith Community Health Center clients and YMCA members. In addition to the exercise, fitness training, and educational programs already offered, the YMCA is also considering education and wellness programs centered around diabetes education, smoking cessation, nutrition counseling, family counseling and massage therapy.

In order to maximize on community resources already available, the YMCA is forging partnerships with various local organizations – such as the American Cancer Society, Branson Drug, local Health Departments, and others – to help provide these specialized services at the YMCA. The future scope of prevention and wellness services will expand based on community and client need.

The many people involved in the development of the Faith Community Health Center are resolved to bring hope and healing to the working uninsured in this community. “The Faith Community Health Center – YMCA collaboration is just another example of people working together to improve the lives of those that call Ozark Mountain Country home,” Head said. “The Lord is certainly in this.”

Please join the White River Valley Historical Society Sunday, March 8th, for our Spring Quarterly Membership Meeting and enjoy another program on Dance in the Ozarks. This time, we will explore clogging. Clogging is a traditional folk dance that was born in the Appalachian Mountains. It’s danced in tap shoes with double taps on the heels and toes and it has some elements of tap and Irish step dancing.
The thing that people notice most about clogging is its speed. Our presenter is “Kicks Studio”, which is the home of High Voltage National Champion Competition Teams. Kicks Studio’s mission is to provide high quality clogging instruction that promotes self esteem, builds self confidence and develops lifelong relationships. They represent the modern-style clogging that is sweeping the nation as one of the fastest growing dance forms today, along with staying true to traditional clogging footwork.

Kicks Studio is located in historic downtown Nixa, at 111 South Main Street, and features three instructors and five levels of dance instruction, for ages 5 through adult. Instructor Kelle Graves has been competing nationally for over 22 years. She is the Director of High Voltage competition teams, teaches advanced & competition classes, and has performed at Silver Dollar City, Baldknobbers Theatre, & the Grand Ole Opry. Shari Jones has been teaching for 11+years–teaching all ages from beginner to adult.

Tori Jones has been clogging for 11 years, since she was 5, and assistant teaching for 3 years. She recently won 1st Overall Female Champion in both regional and national competitions.

The meeting will be held at The Taney Center, 20130 US Highway 160, east of Forsyth. Social time begins at 1:00 pm, and the program will start at 2:00 pm. The meeting and refreshments are free, and the public is encouraged to attend. The White River Valley Historical Society preserves, protects and promotes the cultural history of the White River Valley, concentrating on Taney County, Missouri. For more information, call 417 546-9892.
