Some have transpired, and others are to come. All in all, it’s hats-off time to all the area show choirs, choral groups and their affiliates at local high schools. Their holiday shows are packed with high-caliber entertainment and the kind of vibes we all need to get beyond the guns-and-butter news of the day. When you attend, and we urge you to do so, keep in mind these kids and their teachers also work full time at instruction and learning. This so-called and extracurricular activity is anything but that. They work their tails off – some starting as early as late summer – to make sure the kickoffs to the holidays are jolly days. It’s affordable entertainment delivered with high levels of enthusiasm. We hope you’re able to show the actors, vocalists, musicians, directors and stagehands the same in return. (Check your high school’s website for performance dates and times.)

A point of parliamentary procedure, if you will: Current Publishing recently topped a value of $1 million in total sponsorships since its Oct. 24, 2006, launch. We’re proud of that, and we’re suckers for not-for-profit causes. Actually, we can’t remember ever saying “no.” If your NFP wishes to have Current sponsor its event, we have a system in place. If you e-mail our special projects coordinator, Julie Osborne (email@example.com), she will get the ball rolling on your behalf, and in some form or fashion you’ll have our support.
