Eh? Get fabulous at UMD

Get fabulous at UMD

The UMD Gay Lesbian Bisexual Transgender Queer Ally Commission is sponsoring the Super Gay Cabaret 2014 at the Marshall Performing Arts Center on the UMD campus.

The show's organizers are calling the musical extravaganza "pee-your-pants funny." The show will feature a series of contemporary musical theater acts that celebrate sexual identity and gender expression "in all its diversity."

The show is scheduled for 7:30 tonight and Friday night. Admission is $7 for students and $12 for nonstudents. For tickets, go to UMDSFA/online or call (218) 726-8561.

The organizers warn that some of the material is recommended for adult audiences only. Also, they wouldn't change the name to Super Gay CabarEh?, but it won't hold Eh? back.

Calling artists

The Duluth News Tribune's "Art Gallery" feature in the Scrapbook section is looking for your original art pieces to showcase.

All an artist needs do is send a photo of his or her artwork with a short description of what type of medium (ink drawing, oil painting, watercolor, screen printing, etc.), name and what town the artist lives in.

Submissions can be emailed to, or mailed to Art Gallery, Duluth News Tribune, 424 W. First St., Duluth, MN 55802.

Army maneuvers

The Salvation Army wants you to donate to the Salvation Army food shelf during Minnesota FoodShare Month.

Minnesota FoodShare's "March Campaign" is encouraging Northland residents to give to the local Salvation Army. Money goes further than foodstuffs, said Major Bill Cox, a Salvation Army spokesman.

"Each dollar goes a long way," Cox said. "If you want to do the most good, a $10 gift to us will go further than purchasing $25 worth of groceries on your own."

The reason, Cox said, is that through its network of retailers and food banks, the Salvation Army can purchase pallets of food for as little as 12 cents per pound, or purchase milk for less than $2 per gallon.

But, Cox says, if people are looking for a more tangible item to give, "peanut butter is perfect. We never have enough of it, and it's always a welcome protein for families -- especially kids."

To donate financially, bring or mail a donation to the Salvation Army, 215 S. 27th Ave. W., Duluth, MN 55806, or by phone by calling (218) 722-7934. Nonperishable food items can also be brought to the location listed above.

We welcome your submissions and suggestions. Drop us a line at,,, or mail items to Eh?, Duluth News Tribune newsroom, 424 W. First St., Duluth, MN 55802.
