Wild Women wave good-bye

(posted 4.6.11)

The American Legion Hall in Sedro-Woolley was a bittersweet place to be March 12, as the beloved lip-sync group Wild Women of Woolley (“and a few good men”) performed their final show to a packed room.

After 17 years, the group called it quits, dedicating the March 12 performance to the memory of their cofounder and director Corey Corkill. “And, let’s face it, none of us are getting any younger,” said longtime member Donna Geerdes (below) with a wink and a laugh.

After paying homage to Corkill and the group’s history, the performers did what they do best: They left the crowd in stitches. Selections included Phyllis Christofferson singing “Colorectal Surgeon,” and Dottie and Sterling Cross (below) channeling Archie and Edith Bunker, singing “Those Were the Days.”
