Coming up at the Iowa Theater
From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.

Bolt for the Heart
Saturday • 4/20 • 9:00-10:30 am
Winterset City Park
The Madison County Leadership Institute: Class of 2019 is holding a 5K Run/Walk to raise funds to purchase AED’s (Automated External Defibrillator’s) for the Madison County Law Enforcement patrol cars, including the Madison County Sheriffs Department, the Winterset Police Department, and the Earlham Police Department.
AED stands for Automated External Defibrillator and is used on patients that are experiencing sudden cardiac arrest. Police are often able to arrive on the scene before an ambulance and the earlier defibrillation can be provided the better the chances of survival.
While AED’s are a critical first response item, many police department’s such as our own do not have access to them due to the cost. Our goal is to raise enough money to provide these to all of our county police force.

Madison County Airing of the Quilts
Saturday • 4/27 • 10:00 am – 4:00 pm
Multiple Locations in the Community
The Iowa Quilt Museum is gearing up for the 2nd Annual Madison County Airing of the Quilts. This community-wide event will feature quilt displays in over 15 unique locations in Winterset and Madison County including: three covered bridges, five churches, three historic homes, the Madison County Historical Complex, the Madison County Courthouse, Winterset City Park, the Winterset Public Library, Piece Works Quilts shop (upstairs), and, of course, the Iowa Quilt Museum. Some displays will require a ticket for admission. That $20 ticket can be purchased in advance through the Iowa Quilt Museum or on the day of the event at the IQM or Chamber of Commerce. The outdoor displays are free and open to the public and you all are encouraged to join in by hanging a quilt at your own home. It could be on a clothesline, a fence rail, your porch or deck or even hanging out of a window—use your imagination!
You can also support the Iowa Quilt Museum by attending the fundraising dinner and auction that evening (April 27th). The dinner will be held at the Jackson Building and tickets are $40. Social hour and silent auction will start at 5:00. Dinner will be served at 6:00 and the program and live auction will be after dinner. The program will include a short trunk show of quilts from the collection at the Grout Museum in Waterloo. Tickets for that event can be purchased at the Iowa Quilt Museum or online.
