|Spring Barbecue Brings World to the Forest|
Woodberry Forest School's Ninth Annual Spring Barbecue, held on May 18, 2013, brought together grilling traditions from all over the globe. Eight teams of boys and faculty members, representing South Carolina, Eastern North Carolina, Lexington, North Carolina, Texas, Alabama, Mexico, China, Korea, and the Caribbean, started early, making sauces, rubs, and marinades in the school's kitchen. Then they grilled nearly half a ton of meat, with some teams placing their meat on the grills at 3:00 am to be cooked over hardwood gathered from campus. When dinner time arrived, guest judges, including former headmaster Emmett Wright, tasted and evaluated each team's offerings. Alabama's chicken with white sauce won the top judged prize while Korea's skewered beef won the popular vote.

|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.

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.
