Art Show & Romeo and Juliet

At 7pm Romeo and Juliet will be presented by the Drama Guild! GD’s version of the William Shakespeare classic is set during the Civil War.  The cast and crew have been working hard on period costumes, music, and dance. Snacks and refreshments will be on sale before the performances and during intermissions, and chair pillows will be available for rent. A few cast photos will also be auctioned off to benefit the Drama Scholarship. 

Performances will be held on Friday, April 10 at 7 p.m., and Saturday, April 11 at 2 p.m. & 7 p.m. at the Groton-Dunstable Regional High School’s Black Box Theater, 703 Chicopee Row, Groton, MA.

Host Family Wanted
A German International student with a F-1 visa needs a host family so he may attend Groton-Dunstable Regional High School next year.  The family will be paid $1,000 stipend each month during the school year. He likes soccer, swimming and skiing. The student has his own spending money, insurance, follows family rules, helps with chores, participates in family and school activities and comes the middle of August and stays till school is out.  He needs to have his own bedroom with a place to study.  He can take the bus to school and will need transportation to his school activities as well as carpooling.

The student is allergic to cats but can be in a home with a dog with his medicine.  This has been confirmed by CCIgreenheart, the exchange student agency.  Call Ginger Smith 603-397-2494 or email  very soon.

Poetry Out loud Competition
Poetry Out Loud competition date has been rescheduled from April 17th to April 29th. 

Emerson Hospital Volunteer Opportunity
Emerson Hospital Center for Rehabilitative and Sports Therapies is hosting a bike camp for children and adults with disabilities to teach them how to ride a bike.  

When: April Vacation 20-24th 2015
Where: Lawrence Academy Groton MA. Hockey Rink
How: We are bringing in trainers from the iCan Shine program out of Pennsylvania, who will use specially adapted bikes, and by the end of the week, the hope is that the campers will graduate to their own conventional two wheeled bikes.  This program has an 80% success rate.

But we need volunteers to make this happen.
If you have a child 13 or older, or if you would like to join us, then follow the link to view the flyer and  registration form.  We are looking for volunteers to sign up for one 75 minute session- the same session each day of the week, Mon- Fri..  So it is not a big commitment, but it is a big pay back. I have a number of adults who are volunteering, so don't be shy, come on out.  This would be a fun activity for a parent and teen to do together.  

Each volunteer will earn 10 hours of community service, receive a T shirt and a certificate from Emerson Hospital.
