Area volunteers pack blizzard bags for seniors

Thursday, December 6, 2012 by The Press in Focus Feature

Volunteers from Computer Aid, Selective Insurance, Air Products, and Meals on Wheels recently packed 900 emergency food bags ready to deliver to homebound seniors and adults with disabilities in Lehigh County during this winter season.

Every year, Meals on Wheels provides its homebound clients with a day's worth of shelf-stable food items, called "blizzard bags," to be used during bad weather when meals cannot be delivered.

These blizzard bags are provided free-of-charge.

Players of the Stage present play based on 'The Bicyclers and Three Other Farces'

Actors with Players of the Stage, a local Christian theater group, have been rehearsing their version of "The Amateurs" for the past two months.

This three-act play is based on John Kendrick Bangs book, "The Bicyclers and Three Other Farces."

The play tells the story of a group of friends from the 1880s who are amateurs at everything they do, including riding a bicycle.

Matthew Buonanno portrays Robert Yardsley. Stephen Gahman plays Jack Barlow.
