Other prizes in the raffle include valuable Hummel collectibles. All proceeds from the raffle go to the Hummel Museum, a non-profit organization. The Feltners said, “The proceeds will help toward keeping their one-of-a-kind art museum in New Braunfels. The round trip air fare for two is courtesy of American Airlines and Rennert’s New Braunfels Travel. Other prizes are courtesy of John and Vicki Hobe of Arizona; Lottie Smith, Goebel Representative; the M. I. Hummel Club of Pennington, NJ.; and the local chapter of the club. A special, limited edition figurine has been produced to commemorate Hummelfest ‘97. This special M. I.

Also each purchaser will receive a specially created wooden base that will hold the museum’s three special figurines, “Latest News,” “For Father," and “What’s New.” According to the Feltners, the two other figurines were issued for Hummelfest ‘96 and Wurstfest ‘96. The celebrity dinner March 14 will give those in attendance an opportunity to mix with television personalities, an internationally famous sculptor, an astronaut who walked on the moon and other notables. The Feltners said, “There will be no head table because we will have these celebrities seated at different tables to allow everyone an opportunity to visit with them.” For information related to Hummelfest call 625-5636.

That's when Circle Arts Theatre puts “The Odd Couple” to bed, after a successful run of packed houses for the Neil Simon comedy. “It’s been most surprising to see the enthusiasm for this show,” said its director, Elizabeth Elliott. “It's been done so often, we were concerned that the public might be burned out on it. But fortunately, the sold-out houses proved otherwise.” Both Bob Byxbec and Gary Pemberton (who play the mismatched roommates) call the production “a real workout,” but also claim the overwhelming audience response made it worth “every drop of perspiration." The final performances will be given this Friday and Saturday, with curtain at 8 p.m. A few tickets are still available at China-n-Thmgs. For reservations, call 609-3092 from 3 to 7 p m. through Saturday.
