The campus wide food drive sponsored by the Staff Council is now underway. Non-perishable and not-outdated food items donated will be distributed to area food shelves this month with Friday December 20th being the final day. Please donate items by twelve noon on Friday 12/20/13. There’s now a cardboard box in the Davis Family Library staff room. Please give generously – the need is very great.
The Middlebury Community Players is putting on SWINGTIME CANTEEN beginning tonight. I have now seen the show in rehearsal seven times and it’s been an incredible experience. This cast is wonderful and they put their hearts and souls into the music and the USO storyline. I have a favorite song and each night she performs it better and better. (I had goosebumps last night.)
The Players have free tickets for all WWII veterans so if you know someone, please invite them to join you. Maybe they once experienced a real USO production… 70 years ago. Just mention this to the ticket sellers at the Town Hall Theater.
I’m sure you know most of the music and you know at least one person on stage. (Next week let me know what your favorite part was!)
Thursday-Saturday, July 19-21 at 8 pm; Matinees Saturday & Sunday, July 21 & 22 at 2 pm
