Thank you for all of the wonderful feedback and compliments regarding our get together last Thursday. It’s always so nice to spend time sharing stories from the year and laughing about all of Ashley’s mishaps… (Yes, this is written by Megan)
For those of you who were unable to attend, let’s recap the evening! Dinner was great, so much chicken…it made KFC jealous. The side dish and dessert carry-in was a huge success. Too many wonderfully delicious options to choose from! Thank you to everyone who shared their specialty items.
After dinner we moved into the Browning for our “in-service” portion of the evening…only to be followed by an anxiety ridden showing of Gravity.
All of you shared your favorite moments from the season. It was so nice to remember some of our forgotten performances and gain insight into personal favorites. So many great moments at the Center: Richard III, Momix, Cabaret, Audra McDonald…just to name a few!
We enjoyed Ted Barron’s company…he had great feedback from the season and shared some of what’s to come. Hear, hear for the Polish film series and the WWI classics coming up!
Next up, our pinning ceremony. Congratulations to all of the hard work of our recipients. It’s such a joy to celebrate your achievements. Our seasons wouldn’t be the success they are without all of you! Sharing these shifts with you make our job such a pleasure.

As for updates, we discussed that we will be hiring new volunteers in January. If you have any friends or family that you would like to refer, please do.
Next, hold onto your seats….Gravity…This movie confirmed that I have no desire to EVER go into space…not even for George Clooney. Wow, the cinema made that movie amazing. I think we all left that movie with a heightened level of anxiety and at the same time a great appreciation for the cinematography that it took to make such a breathtaking movie.
Thank you for joining us and we look forward to our next get together!
