The six men then set out to make some quick cash showing off their "real man" bodies by becoming a team of male strippers. As the guys work through their fears, self-consciousness and anxieties they find strength as a group and overcome their inner demons.
Following the show, there will be a talk on the history of the Music Circus with the Executive Director of Music Mountain Theatre.

STARS AND STRIPES: Fabric of the American Spirit
The Lebanon Township Museum is extremely honored to be hosting an exhibit entitled "The Stars and Stripes: Fabric of the American Spirit" from June 13th to July 13th.
From its birth on June 14th, 1777 until 1912, no laws were enacted governing the arrangement of stars on the American flag, leaving their placement to the sole discretion of the flag maker. Flags from before 1912 with varying designs and configurations of stars will be on display as part of this exhibit. Others include handwritten inscriptions and stamped overprints. Together they trace the evolution of  the American flag and bring to life the personal and historical accounts that speak to the character of our nation and provide a link to important events of the past.
Collector, author and historian J. Richard Pierce is a retired senior banking executive whose lifelong love of the Stars and Stripes parallels his strong interest in politics and US history. He has been collecting flags since 1991 when he acquired his first flag as a thirtieth wedding anniversary gift from his wife, Barbara. 
An opening reception will be held on Thursday June 13th at 6pm with a lecture entitle "Evolution of the American Flag" to be given by Mr. Pierce at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served.

THE HISTORY OF THE VILLAGE OF READINGTON
Readington Village is located on Holland Brook, originally named Amanmechunk, which means large creek in the Unami Dialet.  Readington was first settled by Europeans in the early 18th century by Dutch and English immigrants. In 1738, the Dutch Reformed Church of North Branch was moved west to Readington Village because of the growing population. 
During the 19th century, Readington Village had a church, a mill, a store, a school and a tavern. The mill in Readington Village continued to run until about 1920 and was still standing until 1935.
Join County Historian, Readington Township Historian Emerita and author, Stephanie Stevens who has done extensive research on this subject.  Readington Museums has graciously offered to host this talk making it even more special on the Summer Solstice!

STARS AND STRIPES: Fabric of the American Spirit
The Lebanon Township Museum is extremely honored to be hosting an exhibit entitled "The Stars and Stripes: Fabric of the American Spirit" from June 13th to July 13th.
From its birth on June 14th, 1777 until 1912, no laws were enacted governing the arrangement of stars on the American flag, leaving their placement to the sole discretion of the flag maker. Flags from before 1912 with varying designs and configurations of stars will be on display as part of this exhibit. Others include handwritten inscriptions and stamped overprints. Together they trace the evolution of  the American flag and bring to life the personal and historical accounts that speak to the character of our nation and provide a link to important events of the past.
Collector, author and historian J. Richard Pierce is a retired senior banking executive whose lifelong love of the Stars and Stripes parallels his strong interest in politics and US history. He has been collecting flags since 1991 when he acquired his first flag as a thirtieth wedding anniversary gift from his wife, Barbara. 
An opening reception will be held on Thursday June 13th at 6pm with a lecture entitle "Evolution of the American Flag" to be given by Mr. Pierce at 7pm. Light refreshments will be served. Additional festivities to celebrate this exhibit will include a Flag Day Celebration on Saturday June 15th at 1pm which will include an Apple Pie Baking contest, churn your own ice cream, Father's Day & Patriotic crafts for kids and more. A closing lecture entitled "Famous Flags in American History" will be presented by Mr. Pierce at 2pm on Saturday July 13th.

The exhibit and all events are free and open to the public. For additional information, please visit our website
