Better than Branson
Mary and I had a wonderful experience last weekend, along with a sorrowful regret. We didn’t know Southern Iowa had it’s own “better than Branson” country music theater, but when we obtained front row seats, we jumped at the chance to attend.
It turns out that Willis and Faye Dickerson have been running this establishment for 40 years, and this was to be their last performance. Wouldn’t you know it. Willis is 80 (they both look 65), and Faye is two years behind him.
They met in high school, in Unionville, Mo. The teacher made Willis sit beside Faye for talking. They’ve been married and talking for 60 years now. It’s time for them to retire. They are putting their 300-seat theater, which they built on eight acres, one mile north of the Lake Rathbun Dam, up for sale, and staying put on their 800 acre farm at Unionville.
