Westport 5/1

The new Visitors Center at the Heritage House is getting ready for its second year of operation, and once again the call is going out for volunteers to act as "Ambassadors" for our lovely town during the busy summer months. The center will be open from Memorial Day to Columbus Day, and the Ambassadors greet visitors and have resources on hand to answer frequently asked questions about Westport, Wadhams, and the surrounding region.

This is a perfect way to put your local knowledge to use in helping others enjoy all that this wonderful area has to offer. Like last year, there's a brief half-hour training program to familiarize the Ambassadors with the Center and outline their duties. The training sessions (Ambassadors are asked to attend one) are scheduled for Thursday, May 13 from 6:30-7 p.m. and Saturday, May 15 from 9:30-10 a.m.

If you'd like to volunteer this summer, please call Debbie Frisbie at 962-4802 or Nancy Decker at 962-4805 (if you can't make one of the sessions, call anyway and you can probably work out an alternative).

Last year's proud Ambassadors will be warmly welcomed back. They should also come to one of the sessions, since there have been several improvements that Debbie and Nancy are looking forward to sharing with everyone.

It's also time for the Drama Club's spring musical at Westport Central School. This year they're doing "Wonderful Town," the classic Broadway show about two smart and sassy sisters from Ohio who come to the Big Apple. Showtimes at Bulles Auditorium are Thursday, May 6 and Friday, May 7 at 7 p.m., with a matinee on May 8 at 3 p.m.

"We've got 29 seventh through twelfth graders acting and singing their way through this really cute show," director Gigi Carroll told me, "and of course the famous Russell Ames is accompanying us on piano..." Need we say more?

Finally, don't forget that the school's Quiz Bowl team and Future Business Leaders of America are two outstanding student organizations that rely on us for support. To donate, or to find out more, call the school at 962-8244.
