11/3/11 Halloween Fun, COTU Runners, Gallery Flux

Oh, we love a good holiday, don’t we Ashland? We love to have a reason to dress up, decorate, visit with friends, and listen to some wonderful music. The sidewalks of our town were packed with little princesses, zombies, and witches. We especially liked Alan Funk’s “Center of the Universe” costume!

Hopefully you got a chance to stop by the Hanover Arts and Activities Center to listen to the Hanover Concert Band play their spooky music. Visit their website to learn about some fun, and free, craft classed for kids over Christmas holidays: www.hanoverarts.org.

This Saturday, November 5th, the Ashland Firehouse Theater will debut its first foreign language showing of the season with the Belgium film, “The Chorus.” A new teacher at a strict boarding school attempts to bring music into the lives of the students. Remember, this movie is FREE! The curtain goes up at 7:45pm- put it on your calendar!

We have our share of Halloween babies in Ashland: Parker Marchetti, Renee Maier, and Bob Brown all celebrated their birthday with ghosts and goblins.

Congratulations to the COTU runners who recently ran in (and finished) the Marine Corp Marathon in Washington, D.C.: Susan Spence, Jill Voekler, and Rodney Bardwell. They all ran very fast, despite the freezing temperature and some snowflakes at the start!

Congratulations are due to Ashland District Chief Benjamin P. Murray who was recognized as Firefighter of the Year by the Doswell Ruritans. Chief Murray was honored for his experience and excellent leadership skills, and the countless hours he dedicates to public safety in Hanover. We are fortunate to have such dedicated public servants in our sweet town.

Have you heard about the new art gallery in town? Gallery Flux will have it’s grand opening on Saturday, November 12th from 7 to 9pm. Come pretend you’re in a Manhattan art gallery and see some of the incredible art created by our local high school students. Gallery Flux is located in the brick building behind Jessica Roberson’s new photography studio at 301 England St. You can’t miss the great sculptures outside!
