RiverView Recovery Center offers Fun, Family Events during Recovery Month


In recognition of September as National Recovery Month, RiverView Recovery Center – in collaboration with the Glenmore Foundation – invites the public to free comedy events by David Pendleton, a ventriloquist who offers a fun show for the entire family.

Ever since he was six years old, David Pendleton has had a passion for ventriloquism and performing. Today, he’s a seasoned professional, an in-demand comedian, and expert ventriloquist whose unique brand of humor has won audiences over throughout the world.

Pendleton brings to his show a cast of comedic characters including lovable but blunt Aunt Tilly, a 94-year-old spinster; the classic quick-witted trouble maker, Mack Elroy; the dopey yet adorable hound dog, Buford; and the slightly misguided albino vulture, Vern. Of course no show would be complete without a few surprise appearances from members of the audience as well!

The events are free and open to the public of all ages, with a free-will donation taken during the performance to go to the Glenmore Foundation to fund future quality events in the region.

The public is invited to the following fun-filled events:

     • Sunday, Sept. 23rd: Augustana Lutheran Church, 520 University Avenue, Grand Forks; 6 PM free soup supper, 7 PM presentation; Augustana Lutheran Church is co-sponsoring this event.

     • Monday, Sept. 24th: Kiehl Auditorium, University of Minnesota Crookston, 2900 University Ave., Crookston; 7 PM

The events are part of National Recovery Month which is held each September. The month-long recognition is meant to spread the positive message that chemical dependency treatment is effective and people can and do recover.
