2019 ONA Benefit

You’re invited to an evening of music and community! It’s time for our yearly Benefit for the Oakwood Neighborhood Association!

Please join Bell Book and Canto, and special guests: Hen Pecked Dawgs, for a holiday concert sure to delight every member of your family! We’ll be performing songs of the season, as well as traditional non-holiday music, and, well, lots of stuff in between!

In lieu of a cover charge, please bring non-perishable goods to help stock their food pantry. Monetary donations to the ONA will also be accepted.

Bell Book and Canto is a lovely duo comprised of two very talented and unique lasses. Ananda and Jenn love to make music, and dabble in just about every genera you can imagine. You can find them at number of festivals and fairs throughout the Midwest, but they’re thrilled to be back in their home town to help out the ONA.

Hen Pecked Dawgs is a Celtic/Americana ensemble. Their music covers a wide range of instrumentals, vocals, and mixing up the two. From original pieces to traditional tunes, these folks are unlike any other group you’ll hear, and their stage shows bring both beauty and humor to your ears.

CARPS December 2019

Central Action Role-Playing Society
We are a high-fantasy LARP (Live Action Role-Playing) group that is currently based in Southeast Michigan. You may already be familiar with tabletop role-playing games (RPGs) such as Dungeons and Dragons or White Wolf products. If you are, the difference between an RPG and a LARP is that RPGs consist of half a dozen or so players sitting around a kitchen table with dice and a single Game Master, whereas a LARP is a cross between an elaborate theatre production, live combat, and a hike in the woods. LARPs such as ours have costuming, boffer weapons, and dozens of players whose actions influence not only what you can accomplish but the course of an entire fantasy world. If you aren’t, well, them’s the basics.

Greetings to all new and prospective players! As always, your first event is free, with a free rewrite should you decide you would rather play a different sort of character or have a different set of skills. (You must be 18 to play.)
