This year’s theme is “Hee-Haw.” Tickets are $10 and available from any Lion, the Panola County Chamber of Commerce and KGAS Radio. Tickets will also be available at the door on Friday.
“We’re going to have a great show this year,” Lions Club President Rodney Wooten said. “It’s going to be lots of good singing, comedy. It’s all for a great cause.”
The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Carthage High School Performing Arts Center, 1600 W. Panola St. in Carthage, with performances from the Panola College stage band and the Panola Pipers. The variety show begins at 7 p.m. The show includes traditional songs, commercials and comedy skits from Lions Club members.
