And Then There Were None

Ten strangers, apparently with little in common, are lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N. Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret. That evening, reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realize the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again… and again...

Come to the Chief Theater in Chiefland as the Suwannee Valley Players present Agatha Christie’s popular murder mystery “And Then There Were None” May 12-14.

Buy a Paver; Honor Veterans

The plan to unveil a veterans’/war memorial in Heritage Park is thousands of dollars away from fruition.

More than $20,000 is needed to erect the lighted memorial that will pay tribute to all branches of the armed forces.

The memorial, a project by the Williston Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA), will also honor veterans – living and dead – with stone pavers at its base.

For $50 an individual can honor a veteran with a paver/brick that has space available for three lines to recognize the veteran’s service.

For more information, call the Williston Chamber of Commerce at 528-5552 or Carolyn at the Williston Pioneer at 528-3343.
