Hell Weekend Potlucks on Saturday and Sunday

It’s Hell Weekend for the cast and crew of The Tempest.

Tech will be at Nottingham on Saturday and Sunday, and actors will be there on Sunday.

We need families to help us provide a potluck lunch for the techies and the actors on both days:

A-H: Appetizers — chips, crackers and cheese, veggies, fruit, etc
I-M: Main Courses (some vegetarian always appreciated)
N-Z: Desserts

Lunch is at noon in Room 100, so we appreciate having food there just ahead of noon; please label bowls and serving utensils. If any parents can help with set up (11:30-12) or clean up (12:30-1), it would be greatly appreciated.  Contact Marjorie Purnine at purnine [at] earthlink [dot] net


Key Club is Collecting Socks Through End of November

Nottingham’s Key Club is collecting socks through the end of November to donate to members of the homeless community in Syracuse.

All donations of socks to this drive will be given to a local organization called In My Father’s Kitchen, which works to provide food and other supplies to people in need, and especially to the homeless during the wintertime.

Donations of packaged socks are welcome, as are individual pairs of socks, as long as they have not been used previously. There is a donation box in T. Little’s room, and donations will be accepted through the end of November.

If anyone has questions about the drive, they can contact Sophie May at maysophia [at] gmail [dot] com.

All donations are greatly appreciated!
