First Presbyterian and Saint Paul’s Lutheran Church of Galeton, 4-26-15


By Martha Pennell, 
mpennell@northernpottersd.org

The World Hunger project during Lent by Saint Paul’s Lutheran, Stock a Backpack, raised $295.00. The project makes week-end meals available for needy children in the USA. 

Birthdays and anniversaries in the congregations were recognized during worship today. 

Choir rehearsal of First Presbyterian church is Saturday, May 2, at 10:15 am. 

Fellowship supper of the two congregations is Sunday, May 3rd, at 5:30 pm at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church. Hostesses are Carol DeLong and Barb Welfling. 

Germania Luncheon Club meets Wednesday, May 13th at noon at Saint Paul’s Lutheran church.

Donations of non-perishable snack and personal hygiene items for our overseas troops can be made until early May. Each congregation has a box in the sanctuary for collection of donated items, sponsored by women of the Galeton Moose and VFW. 

Pastor Tom’s sermon, “The Loving Shepherd,” was based on John 10: 11-18. 

Jesus said he is the good shepherd who knows his sheep and is willing to die for them. Pastor Tom stated our Lord is setting the table every day for our lives. It is great to be alive, and the attitude we should have is to keep on growing. 

The Lord is our shepherd and moves us from storms to green pastures. He is always on the move and is there to restore our souls. 

Although crippling forces took Jesus down, he rose with the saints to reign! God brought him up again. We can be taken down, too, but Jesus brings us back up. 

We need to stay with Jesus through worship, song, and Bible reading, Pastor Tom told us. Tune into Jesus network and be acquainted with him so his presence is etched in our minds. 

When the troubles come we can call him and he will come right away. Jesus is at the center of the circle of life. When troubles come we can call him up and begin to heal right away.

Invisible war: St. Marys Marine’s suicide highlights inner battle

Friends and family say Cpl. Adam Wolfel returned from the war in Afghanistan a changed man, a battle still raging in his mind.

He rarely slept.

When he did, he was often unrousable.

Awake, his moods fluctuated wildly, described as “hair trigger” and combustible.

To those around him Wolfel seemed increasingly tormented in the years after his deployment.  Read more...

‘Motherhood Out Loud’ to open May 7 in Wellsboro

Playing mothers who have taken their children to the park are Amy DeCamp (left) and Rachel Smith. Also in the scene titled “New in the Motherhood” is Sara Crane (not shown).
Celebrate Mother’s Day by going on a “humorous and spirited” journey through motherhood and family with Hamilton-Gibson’s production of “Motherhood Out Loud.”
Performances of the 90-minute show will be at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, May 7, 8 and 9 with a 2:30 p.m. matinee on Mother’s Day - Sunday, May 10, at the Warehouse Theatre on Central Avenue in Wellsboro, next door to The Native Bagel.

Director Thomas Putnam said, “Anyone who is a mother or has a mother, grandmother, stepmother, foster mother or someone like a mother in his or her life will appreciate the humor and emotions expressed in this play. It is offbeat, edgy, funny and moving and shares truths and wisdom that unite us as human beings.

“If it were a film, ‘Motherhood’ would get a PG-13 rating because it is not a show for children under 13. They will not have the life experience necessary to understand it. High school students and adults will,” Putnam said.

Produced by Hamilton-Gibson, the play is a series of 20 short scenes created by 12 female and 2 male writers. This portrait of motherhood looks at all facets of family.

In one scene, mom (Amy DeCamp) struggles to fit in with other moms (Rachel Smith and Sara Crane) as their children play in the park. The scene is 99 percent comedy with a pearl of wisdom.

In another (DeCamp, Coleen Evert and Kacy Hagen) play three mothers trying to cope with awkward teen-related topics. DeCamp said, “The topics are tough ones for parents and kids. Almost everyone can relate to this. The line I used with my parents to preempt conversations like these was: ‘I had health class.’ For the record, it didn’t work.”

Rachel Smith plays a new mom. In the monologue she tells her one-month-old baby about the day of her birth. Smith said, “It’s a heartfelt story with funny lines sprinkled throughout. All parents can relate to it.”

Tickets for the 7:30 p.m. shows on all three nights are $18 for adults and $7 for students. The Sunday matinee is Pay-What-You-Can.

“Motherhood” is sponsored in part by Mountain Valley Realty, LLC.

For more information or tickets, call Hamilton-Gibson Productions at 570-724-2079 or email hamgib@gmail.com.

Unique exhibition to open with reception May 3 in Wellsboro

Chad Andrews of Montoursville is shown with his silicone polymer drawing titled "Soft Backhoe #3 — The Weight of Delicacy." In January of this year, he used pins to install this eight-foot by seven-foot by 1.5-inch drawing made of silicone and Mylar at the University of North Carolina's S. Tucker Cooke Gallery at Asheville.

WELLSBORO PA — On Sunday, May 3, from 2-4 p.m., a unique exhibit by artist Chad Andrews of Montoursville will open at the Gmeiner Art and Cultural Center at 134 Main Street in Wellsboro.

The only way to enjoy Andrews’ artwork is to stop in and see the drawings. No one can “own” them.

Titled “Soil, Plows and Flowers,” his exhibition will feature 10 to 20 of his silicone polymer works that portray how mankind manipulates earth and how nature balances those actions. Also included will be some of his mixed media pieces.

By the time his exhibit opens at the Gmeiner, Andrews will have spent about six months completing his silicone polymer drawing process, including several days for the installation.

The process begins with him playing out ideas and themes by doing a lot of drawings in his sketchbook. Andrews next creates sharpie drawings to scale on plastic for the exhibit. He then covers each sharpie drawing with clear plastic and draws the images again, this time in silicone caulking like people buy at the hardware store.

He said, “As I draw the images with the silicone, I add more to them. Then I pin the silicone drawings to the walls. During this stage, I am editing and changing the drawings to work in the space where I am placing them. When I’m done, the silicone lines appear to be floating.”

On the wall, his silicone polymer artwork pieces look like three dimensional line etchings of gestural forms. At the Gmeiner, these forms will be of tractors with different plowing attachments and flowers. “The drawings will make the gallery look like my sketchbook,” he noted.

The exhibit and the May 3 reception, hosted by the Wednesday Morning Musicales, are free to the public.

Monday, May 4 through Sunday, May 24, the free exhibit will be open daily from 2-5 p.m.

When the exhibit ends, the silicone will be ripped off the pins and discarded. “The drawings can’t be saved. My silicone installations are ephemeral.”

An instructor in printmaking and two-dimensional design at Bloomsburg University, Andrews‘ private studio, Studio Paper+ is in the Pajama Factory in Williamsport. He works in mixed media combining oil painting, printmaking and drawing techniques.

For information, call the Gmeiner at 570-724-1917.

Historian, songwriter to present program on Civilian Conservation Corps

At the Deane Center in Wellsboro, Bill Jamerson will be singing songs he has written and telling stories about life in the Civilian Conservation Corps he has been told during CCC reunions and conventions.
Historian and songwriter Bill Jamerson of Escanaba, Michigan will share stories about the Civilian Conservation Corps on Tuesday, May 12 at 7 p.m. at the Deane Center’s Grand Community Room at 104 Main Street, Wellsboro.

He has been giving live programs about the CCC to children and adults since 2002. His is the first program in the Deane Center’s History Comes Alive series.

Jamerson will be dressed as a dollar-a-day boy as he tells stories, plays guitar and sings songs he has written. The information is based on firsthand accounts about life in the Civilian Conservation Corps he has gathered at CCC reunions and conventions. “His stories are as historically important as they are entertaining,” said Kevin Connelly, Deane Center executive director.

During the show, Jamerson will also share video clips from his 1992 documentary film “Camp Forgotten – The Civilian Conservation Corps in Michigan,” which aired on 58 public television stations nationwide and excerpts from his book “Big Shoulders,” a historical novel published in 2007 about the extra-ordinary individuals in the CCC. He went on to write and produce 10 more documentaries.

There are often pleasant surprises at his shows when some of the people attending tell CCC stories and bring photos and memorabilia.

As a youngster, Jamerson developed a love for history by listening to his grandfather talk about life in the lumberjack camps and living through the Great Depression.

From 1933 to 1942, CCC camps operated across the United States, including in Tioga County, Pa.

About 600,000 World War I veterans and 2.6 million young unmarried men, 17 to 28 who could not find jobs enlisted in the CCC public relief program designed to put them back to work. They were given a place to sleep, food to eat, clothes to wear and paid $1 a day in return for the work they did.

They logged trees and planted new ones, built walls and dams and a network of public roadways, and upgraded or built hundreds of state parks across the country. Among them were Leonard Harrison and Colton Point state parks, near Wellsboro.

Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students. Children under 12 with an adult will be admitted free.

For information or tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit www.deanecenter.com. For $60, adults can buy a ticket package to attend all five shows in the series. Ticket packages are also available for organizations.

Addams Family auditions are May 13 & 14

Hamilton-Gibson Productions is holding auditions at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday, May 13 and 14 for its summer musical, “The Addams Family.”
The auditions will be at the Warehouse Theatre on Central Avenue, next to the Native Bagel in Wellsboro. The characters range in age from 10 to adult in the show about this beloved and kooky family.

Artistic Director Thomas Putnam said, “Singing is required for all roles in this musical comedy. Actors do not have to have great voices, just good, strong ones.”

Lucas Beineke and Wednesday Addams are 19-year-olds in love. He sings pop tenor vocals and she, strong pop belt vocals.

Their parents, Gomez and Morticia Addams and Mal and Alice Beineke are in their 40s or 50s. Gomez adores his wife and is proud of his children. He loves being an Addams. Mal is a stuffy father and exasperated husband. The two men have tenor voices. A strong dancer with a dry wit and alto voice is needed to play Morticia, a sultry, attractive woman who is the strength of her family. Alice, a soprano, is a quirky female who often speaks in rhyme.

Wednesday’s brother, Puglsey Addams is 10 to 12 years old. His voice has not yet changed. A strong, husky boy, he loves being tortured by his sister and takes matters into his own hands with her new boyfriend.

An energetic, joyous, child-like presence, Uncle Fester is larger than life. He is a vaudeville style comedian who sings tenor.

Grandma is a feisty, quirky 102-year-old woman. She is fun but don’t mess with her. A person with strong, character vocals is needed for this role.

Lurch, the Addams family butler, is a tall man who knows it all, moves slowly and sings in a low bass voice.

The Addams Ancestors, an ensemble of five men and five women, form the chorus of singer-dancers.

The show dates are Friday through Sunday, July 17-19 and Friday and Saturday, July 24 and 25.
