On December 19 and 20, the weekend before Christmas, the Vonereva Ballet Company will be dancing The Nutcracker at the Central City Theater. With its spectacular Waltz of the Snowflakes scene, The Nutcracker is always a favorite during the Chrismas period. It is said to be one of the most enioyable ballet extravaganzas for all ages, and especially children, due to its Christmas story plot, dancing toys and fabulous costumes.
Performance times will be announced next week but, in the meantime, please fill out the tear- off portion at the bottom of this letter if you are interested. Children who want to attend, but whose parents/guardians aren't able to, will be accompanied by Mrs Carlson, head of the Science Department. Due to the limited number of performances, we must book soon so as to avoid disappointment. Tickets will not exceed $10, but the bigger the group, the cheaper the tickets.
We are appealing for school children to work as volunteers at weekends. Presently, there are over 35 turtles in our care, a number which has broken all previous records, and the work involved and care they need is keeping the permanent members of staff at the center very busy.
Volunteers would be expected to do menial tasks such as cleaning, welcoming visitors, showing them round and generally
being on hand to help our trained vets when necessary. Most of our turtles are sick or have been injured, and therefore require a lot of tender loving care and attention from the vets,
If you have no time available but would like to help, you can sponsor a turtle for a small fee ($5 per month) and follow its rehabilitation and progress on a weekly basis, eventually taking part in its return to its natural environment. Perhaps you would like to do this together with a classmate.
So come along and visit us and our turtles. We'd all love to see you. We are located at Marina B2 and our phone number is 417 3831. You can also learn more about us online at baysideturtlecenter.com.
