The true story of the small town that welcomed the world. Broadway’s COME FROM AWAY has won Best Musical all across North America!

The New York Times Critics’ Pick takes you into the heart of the remarkable true story of 7,000 stranded airline passengers and the small town of Gander, Newfoundland that welcomed them. Cultures clashed and nerves ran high, but uneasiness turned into trust, music soared into the night, and gratitude grew into enduring friendships.

Don’t miss this breathtaking new musical written by Tony® nominees Irene Sankoff and David Hein, and helmed by this year’s Tony-winning Best Director, Christopher Ashley. Newsweek cheers, “It takes you to a place you never want to leave!”

On 9/11, the world stopped. On 9/12, their stories moved us all.

I had the privilege to meet the Pilot of the plane that this show is about at. She was so gracious. WOW! Sure to please—come join us!

Ikea was founded in 1943 which was mostly a mail-order sales business. It began to sell furniture five years late. The first store was opened in 1958 in Sweden, 1963 in Norway and Denmark in 1969. Now IKEA is a major retail experience in 40 countries. A little trivia…the name IKEA is an acronym standing for founder Inguar Kamprad, Elmtarud (family farm) and his village Agunnaryo. He was only 17 when he founded IKEA.

Hopefully we will be able to grab some bargains during our shopping extravaganza!!
