Holyoke residents packed into the Phillips County Museum for the Saloon and Tune event Sunday, Oct. 16. The open house included a play called “The Voice,” performed by the Phillips County Players, as well as piano music by students of Mary Belle Rafert. Visitors were able to look at some artifacts from Holyoke’s past, including furniture, radios and musical instruments. Characters in the play were each based on real past Holyoke residents such as Mayor Ben Hoskins, owner of Hoskins Bros. Mercantile, his sons Bob and Theodore, banker Lafayette Tinkel, Pastor Adair, his wife and daughter Jo, saloon keeper Dan Sullivan, Sheriff Lee Witherbee and his deputy, S.A. Nelson. Members of the cast included Luke Krogmeier, Robert Soukup, Xander Salyers, Tyler Lamm, Pete Markle, Dolly Smith, Janel Wailes, Karla Satterlee, Christopher Colglazier, Karen Swan, Penny Dockins and Eric Conklin.
