She’s been heavily involved in the comedy scene for over Two years Liberty Belle not only does stand up comedy but she produces her own shows and is responsible for almost all internet flyers for local shows. Insomnia cookies... Cedar Falls very own Local Comic Liberty Belle Telephoned a delivery Order from Insomnia cookies... Wait did you just say they Deliver Cookies!!?! Amazing Right? She reported that “the ordering was superb, staff fantastic on phone and take care of business. Obviously not the best cookies in the world because they’re not your Grandma’s but good cookies. Highly recommend white chocolate macadamia cookie. Almost better the second day. The moose track ice cream was a surprise. Super good. Creamy, not too hard, not to soft. Get the quart, you won’t regret it.” Catch Liberty Belle June 22nd at the The Library on the Hill in Cedar Falls @9pm Featuring southwestern Iowa comic Tiffany Buehneman.

AmeriCorps is hosting a rain barrel auction in June, but we want more than a boring, blue, barrel, blech! We're looking for artists to volunteer their time to paint a rain barrel to make it unique and decorative! During the first College Hill Farmer's Market, with speakers, La Calle, face painting, activity booths, and cornhole games! Watch artists paint the barrels live, along all of College Hill. Homeowners will bid on the painted rain barrels during the week of College Hill Arts Festival (June 11th - June 17th), and the proceeds will go towards paying for barrels, converter kits, and helping AmeriCorps fund more conservation programming.
