|Inexpensive Meal Day Raises Money for Area's Hungry|
Woodberry Forest School's students, faculty, and staff enjoyed, as always, a tasty, filling lunch in the Reynolds Family Dining Room on May 15, 2013. But the meal served more than just those on campus that day -- It also helped the area's hungry families. The menu featured simple, inexpensive dishes -- beans, rice, fruit, bread, and cookies. The money the school's food services saved will be donated to two local charities, Madison Emergency Services Association and Orange's Love Outreach Food Pantry.
According to Indira Cope, faculty sponsor of the project, one in six children living near Woodberry Forest experience food insecurity. Caleb Rogers '16 initiated the fundraiser, designed not only to help these children, but also to raise awareness of hunger among our neighbors.
|Young Frankenstein Opens Thursday|
The Woodberry Forest Players will present Young Frankenstein, May 16-18, 2013, at 8:00 pm in Bowman Gray Auditorium, Walker Fine Arts Center. The Mel Brooks version of the Frankenstein story, presented in a dramatic version on the same stage this fall, is a hilarious musical comedy featuring such showstoppers as "Together Again (For the First Time)," "Roll In The Hay," "He Vas My Boyfriend," and an explosive rendition of Irving Berlin's "Puttin' On the Ritz."
Be prepared for some bawdy humor of the type you'd expect from Mel Brooks.
|Environmental Science Class Pitches In|
Woodberry Forest School's AP Environmental Science students recently headed out for their yearly roadside cleanup project. Graham McBride has taken his classes to the same stretch of Rt. 15 every spring for the past ten years to pick up trash near the school entrance. The boys sort and weigh the refuse, recording their findings for comparison over the years. Graham noted, "We find more and more plastic water bottles each year. And this year, we picked up a lot of bags from both nearby and distant restaurants, too." The project provides a good environmental learning experience and a helpful community service.
