My name is Kimberly Dulka, and like many of you - I grew up here in The All-American Valley. I grew up on an old dairy farm located on Great Hill in Seymour, and some of my best memories happened right here. Growing up on a farm was a little different than other kids - we had an old outhouse, a barn & a milk house . Our fields hummed with tractors - and our summers were full of busy days of bailing hay and listening to country music. I remember we would have these great parties at the end of the farming season - with live music, accordions & even polka dancing.

When I heard that our historic The Strand Theater was closing at the end of last year, I was deeply saddened. Everyone who I meet in town has a story about The Strand - a first date, a favorite movie-it touched so many people's lives - and I thought it just can't close - it isn't right.

Drawing upon what I know - I decided that I could help. I know music, I know small town values - and through our Wed Acoustic Open Mics at The General Store - I know talented musicians willing to help for a cause.

I thought - we can do this. We have the raw talent, we have the stage, and we have a community that wants to keep our theater alive!

My goal is to raise money with this benefit to help keep The Strand going. I am hoping that after this event, we will have enough money raised to continue A Strand Ole' Opry on a monthly basis at the theater. It's a great way to keep local arts & culture alive in downtown Seymour. 
Thank you so much for your support!See you at The Opry!
