The group gave two performances, Oct. 18-19, on stage at Sheridan Elementary School with both performances being sold out sending some last minute ticket seekers to take to social media in hopes of finding a few extra tickets someone might be willing to part with.

Sheridan School Board looking at buying and selling property
It was real estate night at the Sheridan School Board.

In 2017, the Sheridan School District bought 12 acres north of town on Highway 167, just before the bypass. The land is to be used as a warehouse as well as a maintenance and transportation hub.

Since that time, the district has built the warehouse and will begin building the bus shop soon. Prior to purchasing the property, the district had been renting a storage building for the district warehouse. That building was sold to a new owner, causing the district to lose the rental property.
