I CAN HOLD ANY NOTE LONGER THAN YOU
The Wellsboro Men’s Chorus, the Wellsboro Women’s Chorus, and the Wednesday Morning Musicales’ Chorus are coming together to dazzle the community with a joint concert. Says Diana Frazier, director of the Women’s Chorus and Wednesday Morning Musicales, “When you have that many voices together, it’s quite dynamic.”

Singers will be treating attendees to a variety of pieces—among them, “Get on Your Feet,” “Anything Goes,” and “Lift Up Your Voice”—twenty songs in total. Frasier notes that “Lift Up Your Voice” is her favorite out of the selection. “…[It] really expresses how we feel and why we’re singing as a group together,” explains Frazier. The vocalists even treated WHP viewers to a preview of their finale, performing “Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better” from the Broadway production, Annie Get Your Gun.

DECORATING DECODED – STAGING YOUR HOME
Home staging is preparing a home for sale in a way that appeals to the largest possible audience so that it sells in the shortest amount of time and at the best possible price. Many people get confused that home staging and interior decorating are the same thing. Staging greatly differs from interior decorating because it is not about showcasing your personal style. It is all about the aesthetic nature of the home in regards to design, organization and overall appearance. While fixing a leaking faucet or a door that sticks are important and necessary aspects of preparing your home for sale, these mechanical or functional improvements and repairs are not part of home staging. You need to look at your house through a buyer’s eyes and think “Would I want to live here?”

THE 139TH WELLSBORO ALUMNI BANQUET
Wellsboro Alumni Council President, Bob Blair, has served as a member of the council for nineteen years. His heart is to reconnect fellow classmates. “You know, it’s pretty amazing, we always give out a ‘furthest-alumnus-of-the-year’ award,” Blair remarks, “They come from overseas, they come from California, Alaska…but it’s too bad more don’t attend.” He encourages those that are able to register for the banquet now, but also noted that walk-in attendees are still welcome.

FOR THE LOVE OF FOOD
Meals should be visually appealing-so think color! But, we also want to make them nutrient-dense.
The new Healthy Style Eating Pattern Guideline, put out by USDA for 2015-2020, recommends to include a variety of vegetables, fruits, grains, low-fat dairy, protein foods and oils from plants into your diet.
A creative way to take salad just about anywhere is to use a mason jar! Start with wettest ingredients and work towards driest. A creation of beauty! When you are ready, just shake it upside down a few times and eat it right out of the jar! So, next time you need to pack a meal for away from home, think salad in a jar.
