EHS presents "The Wedding Singer"

wedding singerEdgewood Theater's fall musical, "The Wedding Singer" will run November 19, 20 and 21 at 7PM in the high school auditorium. General Admission is $8, students and seniors $5, and children under 2 are free. Based on the hit Adam Sandler movie, The Wedding Singer's sparkling score does for the '80s what Hairspray did for the '60s. The musical is set in 1985, where a rock-star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer. He's the life of the party, until his own fiancee leaves him at the altar. Shot through the heart, Robbie makes every wedding as disastrous as his own. Enter Julia, a winsome waitress who wins his affection. As luck would have it, Julia is about to be married to a Wall Street shark, and unless Robbie can pull off the performance of a decade, the girl of his dreams will be gone forever. Come out to the EHS auditorium and catch the show for an evening of fun-filled entertainment. (submitted by Kathy Weller, Masqued Crafters Volunteer)

EHS Students Crush Goal for Canned Food Drive

Homecoming week tends to boost the Mustang school morale each year, pinning each class in a friendly competition to show the most school spirit. Classes are awarded points based on themed dress-up days, a Class Clash rivalry of events, and new this year, a "We CAN change the World" food drive, sponsored by the National Honor Society. NHS members set their goal high at 1000 cans, hoping each student would just donate 1-2 canned goods.

As the Homecoming week competition heated up among the classes, students became a little more focused on donating. David Hardy, a senior, asked for monetary donations from his peers to purchase just a few more items on the eve of the final event day. He was stunned to receive five times what he had expected, and was able to purchase 432 more items. One senior who had donated five dollars had this opinion, "Even if we lose the competition, we will still be able to feed all those who need it in the entire town of Ellettsville."

Ultimately the senior class won the Homecoming points for the canned food drive, but all EHS students were proven winners. The Mustang student body almost tripled the NHS goal by collecting around 2700 goods. These were donated to the Richland Township Trustee Food Pantry.
