Absegami High School Robin Hood 2014

Absegami High School’s award-winning drama club, The Emanon Players, presented a comedic version of the classic Robin Hood.  Over three performances November 21, 22 and 23 the Emanon Players had the audience rolling in the aisles.  This version of the story found in English folklore is written by Don Nigro, one of the most widely produced playwrights int he world, said director Chip Garrison.  The story presented a twist on the traditional tale of Robin Hood and his Merry Men.  Prince John wants to cut down Sherwood Forest to put up an arms-manufacturing plant, a slaughterhouse and a tennis court for the wealthy.  Chip Garrison said that it unites elements of wild farce and ancient mythologies with an environmentalist assault on the arrogance of wealth and power in the face of poverty and hunger.

The play directed by Garrison featured students Nicholas Hathaway as Robin Hood, Natalie Frantz as Maid Marian, Saverio Turrano as Prince John and who also created the poster design for the production.  Other roles: Brady Bock as Little John, Spenser Lyons as Will Scarlet, Jess Schrading as Lady Quigley, C.J. Coyle as the Sheriff of Nottingham, Nathan Moore as King Richard, Zach Hassel as Alan O’Dale and Michael Moore as Friar Tuck.  Rounding out the cast: Colleen Garrison, Isabelle Brown, Abby Cohen, Rachel Cohen, Ashley Fox, Andrea Rapetti, Jordan Porch, Lexi Patterson, Miranda Muniz, Sarah LePine, Rick Mangold, Matt Brennan, Brandi Aldredge, Jenna Baldwin, Breanna Gargione, Sarah Heintz, Raynah Katzem, Victoria Kreutzer, John Lopez, Bart Machula, Lynnette Marmolejos-Cepada, Nicole Marmolejos-Cepada, Johnny Nguyen, Mia O’Neill, Jacklyn Polisano, Julie Samuels and Victoria Williams

Oceanville Fire Dept in Galloway Oyster dinner 2014

Oceanville Volunteer  Fire Company does it again with their biannual Baked Ham and Fried Oyster Dinner.  On Saturday, November 8th hundreds were greeted by Ladies Auxiliary President Eleanor Denight, her daughter, Jaime Mellon, and her son-in-law Robert Mellon. “Everybody pitches in – from the setup right through the dinner,” Lancaster said. “We try to do a teamwork concept. It’s like we do on actual fire calls: We work as a team. Nobody shines above another person; everybody’s a key player.” And, he said, the company prides itself on doing business locally. “The oysters are from Port Norris,” Lancaster said. “They’re local. Everything is bought local.”
Paul Austin breads the oysters.“We were here the day before breading oysters early on,” Austin said. “There’s a lot of advance work involved.” The coleslaw is homemade, he said. “We prepare the ham in pineapple sauce,” Austin said. “We actually have more volunteers than members. My 14-year-old niece volunteers. Some members have brought younger kids in.”  There are 25 auxiliary members who all volunteer as well, according to Denight.  The fundraiser was a huge success thanks to all who came out.
