Valley Players Dinner Theater “The Savannah Sipping Society”
Mar 31 all-day

The Valley Players community theater organization will present “The Savannah Sipping Society,” a comedy by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope and James Wooten at The Packer House, 24 N. 3rd St., Sunbury on March 31, April 1, 7 and 8. This production brings the return of Valley Players dinner theater at the Packer House. Tickets are $35 and reservations with pre-payment are required.

In this delightful, laugh-a-minute comedy, four unique Southern women, all needing to escape the sameness of their day-to-day routines, are drawn together by Fate—and an impromptu happy hour—and decide it’s high time to reclaim the enthusiasm for life they’ve lost through the years. Randa, played by Sandie Fairman of New Columbia, is a perfectionist and workaholic, is struggling to cope with a surprise career derailment. Dot, portrayed by Kimberly Eaton of Selinsgrove, still reeling from her husband’s recent demise and the loss of their plans for an idyllic retirement, faces the unsettling prospect of starting a new life from scratch. Earthy and boisterous Marlafaye, a good ol’ Texas gal played by Maggie Able of Lewisburg making her Valley Players debut, has blasted into Savannah in the wake of losing her husband to another woman. Also new to town is Jinx, a spunky ball of fire played by Lizz Hendricks of Northumberland offers her services as a much-needed life coach for these women. However, blinded by her determination and efforts to get their lives on track, she over-looks the fact that she’s the one most in need of sage advice.

 

The menu includes entrée choices of pork loin in fresh ginger peach glaze, garlic chicken with fresh lemon herb sauce, or pesto pasta with mozzarella cheese-stuffed Portobello mushroom, as well as garden salad and rich carrot cake for dessert. The Packer House is also pleased to offer specialty cash bar cocktails and spirits.

The Buffalo Valley Recreation Authority (BVRA) is thrilled to offer our 1st Annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 1st. BVRA works with many different businesses and individuals to bring innovative and exciting programs to the Lewisburg and surrounding communities. BVRA would like to thank the sponsor of the Easter Egg Hunt, Shiva Science and Technology Group.

Children are invited to hunt for more than 5,000 eggs at the West Fields right across the street from the skate park and Tennis Courts, at the Lewisburg Area Recreation Park. Most of the eggs will be filled with candy, but there will be special eggs filled with mystery prizes in each age category.

The grounds will be sectioned off into age-appropriate groups so children ages 3-13 will have the opportunity to participate. Each age group will have 1,500 eggs to find and put in their Easter Egg Baskets. Children must bring their own Easter Egg Baskets, as they will not be provided. Age groups and times will be as followed: 3&4 year olds 11:00 AM- 11:15 AM, 5&6 year olds 11:20 AM- 11:35 AM, 7-9 year olds 11:40 AM- 11:55 AM, and 10-13 year olds 12:00 PM- 12:15 PM.

There will be a special guest appearance by the Easter Bunny. Children of all ages will have the opportunity to take their picture with the Easter Bunny.

The Bucknellians of World War I Research Project
Apr 4 @ 6:30 pm

The Bucknellians of World War I: A Student-Faculty Collaborative Research Project Tuesday, April 4 at 6:30pm at the Public LIbrary for Union County, 255 Reitz Blvd., Lewisburg, PA

In anticipation of the upcoming centennial anniversary and in response to the apparent dearth of written histories, in 2013 Bucknell Prof. David Del Testa began researching the involvement of Bucknell University’s students, faculty, and staff in World War I.  It quickly became apparent that the project would serve as an ideal opportunity for motivated undergraduates to help uncover the stories of Bucknellians who served in the war.

Now at its midpoint, the undergraduates helping with the “Bucknell in World War I” project have found 715 students, staff, and faculty, including eight women, who served domestically and overseas, as soldiers, sailors, ambulance drivers, and experts for the militaries of Britain, France, and the United States, in every theater of this global war. Sadly, forty of this number gave their lives for the conflict.

Please come learn about the project and its successes from some of the very students who have contributed as researchers, as well as their plans for field research in northern France and southern Belgium in May this year.

The program is free and open to the public. Call the Library at 570-523-1172 to reserve a seat.  For additional information, contact UCHS at 570-524-8666 or info@unioncountyhistoricalsociety.org.

Governor Pollock Memorial Dinner
Apr 6 @ 6:00 pm

The Milton Historical Society today released details for its annual Governor Pollock Memorial Dinner, which will be held this year on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at Wynding Brook Golf Club, Route 405 North of Milton, beginning at 6 pm.

The Governor Pollock Memorial Dinner serves as the Milton Historical Society’s annual meeting and is named in honor of Milton’s native son James Pollock, who served as a U.S. Congressman from 1844 to 1849, Pennsylvania Governor from 1855 to 1858 and as Director of the U.S. Mint under President Lincoln.  During his tenure at the Mint, Gov. Pollock is best remembered for literally coining the phrase “In God We Trust” for the first time on U.S. currency.  The dinner is open to the public and offers food, fellowship and a historic lecture.

This year’s lecture will be given by John McWilliams, a Milton Area High School alumnus, retired Professor of American History at Penn State University and the Chair of the Bicentennial Lecture Series.  Professor McWilliams’ lecture is entitled “The American Century:  From Post-War Consensus to Conflict in the Sixties . . .and Beyond” and will explore America, its new-found role in the world following WWII and the cultural and other conflicts that would follow.  As Milton’s Bicentennial Celebration has been exploring Milton’s place over the course of its history, Professor McWilliams will ask us to consider America’s place during the second half of the 20th century.

Reservations are required and must be made no later than March 30.  Reservation forms are available at milton2017.com.  Reservations also can be made by calling Joan Nunn, 570-538-9212.
