One last shout-out for the Flapjack Saturday Community Fundraiser this coming Saturday, April 21, from 8:00 to 10:00 AM at the First Baptist Church of Penfield, 1862 Penfield Road. All April proceeds will go directly to help support a real jewel in our community—the Shepherd Home. This two-bed comfort care facility provides hospice care to the terminally ill in a way that cherishes the dignity of each individual in the last weeks of life.
The Penfield Players—your community theater—will present “A Comedy of Tenors” April 27 and 28; May 4, 5, 11, and 12 at 8:00PM. There is a Sunday matinee May 6 at 2 PM. All performances will be held at the Penfield Community Center, 1985 Baird Road. Directed by Dave Woodworth and produced by Liz Gill and Sandy Lowe-Dusel, “A Comedy of Tenors” follows producer Henry Saunders in 1930s Paris as he tries to keep Italian superstar Tito Merelli and his hot-blooded wife Maria from causing runaway chaos just before the concert of the century. With four tenors, two wives, three girlfriends, and a soccer stadium filled with screaming fans, what could possibly go wrong? Prepare for an uproarious ride full of mistaken identities, bedroom hijinks and madcap delight! Tickets are available in advance for $12 at the Penfield Recreation Office or $15 at the door. For more information about this production and the Penfield Players, please go to www.penfieldplayers.org.

Our Daytime Education at Recreation (DEAR) programs continue to grow and expand…wisdom at its finest! Our team is excited to offer classes and lectures to our consortium of lifetime learners. DEAR engages adults in intellectual, socially viable cognitive activities to help keep the mind sharp and alert while reducing the risk of delaying the onset of age-related concerns. DEAR at the Penfield Community Center has become an important staple to adults who understand the significance of this idea and would like to reshape the way they spend leisure time, meeting new and interesting people along the way. Join the national movement to learn and share life experience with others and explore the multitude of FREE programs available. Please note that while most classes are FREE, registration is required. For more information and details about the programs offered, please refer to the Pen-Rec Summer 2018 Brochure pages 35 to 42, or visit www.penfieldrec.org.
