Bath Rotary Club raises funds for local playground project

Press Release

The Bath Rotary Club will sponsor a dinner theater on Saturday, January 28, 2012, at St. Mary’s O’Malley Hall in Bath.  The proceeds from the event will be used to benefit the local community playground project at the point of East Steuben and East Morris Streets.

The dinner choices, including dessert and coffee served by Around the Corner Catering, are Chicken Cordon Bleu, Beef Bourguignon, or Shrimp Scampi.  There will also be a cash bar with soda, beer, and wine available.  Prior to the performance a 50/50 drawing and several raffles will be held.

The theater production, a comedy arranged by CorNer Traveling Players, is titled “Pandora’s Revenge” which is a one act play by Pat Cook.   According to legend, when Pandora’s Box was opened all sorts of pleasures and evils escaped.  

ust what sort of package has Marvin Hanover opened, he wonders, as he tries to sell insurance to Miss Thorndyke.  Apparently she really isn’t Miss Thorndyke, and she doesn’t actually live at the address she gave him over the phone.  She seems to have more questions for Marvin than he ever saw on any application.  In fact, she grills Marvin like a hamburger patty.  Lines fly fast and ferociously in this cat-and-mouse adventure with Marvin wondering just who is the cat and who is the mouse.  The play is a very funny, fast-paced slice of life with a surprise ending!

Those interested in enjoying an evening of good food, entertainment, and an opportunity to support the local Rotary in its service to the community should contact any Bath Rotarian or call Joanne Sheehan at 607-329-6146 by January 20, 2012 for tickets ($32.00 per person).

The Bath Rotary Club, chartered in 1923, is part of Rotary International which is a service organization with over 31,000 clubs in more than 165 countries throughout the world.  It was the world’s first volunteer service organization and is now more than 100 years old.  The playground project supports one of the organization’s primary purposes, i.e., a global network of volunteers who provide humanitarian service.  The members experience the fulfillment that comes from giving back to the community. The local club meets every Thursday at noon at the Bath Country Club.
