The eco-friendly theme for February is reducing plastic consumption. Why? Less than 9% of plastic gets recycled. Single-use plastics like beverage cups, take-away food containers, plastic straws & bags, and balloons are especially a problem. Unlike plastic, glass and metals (including aluminum) can be recycled indefinitely. 

This month, we will share ideas for how to reduce plastic consumption.

This week's tip is...

Sick of those newspaper-looking plastic Ad bags that sit in your driveway until you toss in the trash?  Call 800-376-6222 to stop.  Share this tip with a neighbor!

Summit High School Theatre presents the Classic Musical, ANYTHING GOES, February 28 - 29 and March 1 - 2, 2024

 The Summit High School Performing Arts Program will welcome you to the great seas with their classic musical, Anything Goes February 28-29, and March 1-2. Originally produced in 1934, Anything Goes has been revived 3 times and its 2011 revival won 3 Tony Awards, including Best Revival. The Guardian praised the thrilling production as, “a delightful musical escape”!

Set in 1934, a group of passengers board the S.S. American to sail from New York to London. Their journey, however, is packed with quirky characters (including evangelist turned nightclub singer Reno Sweeney and gangsters disguised as missionaries), crazy hijinxes, nautical nonsense, and unexpected romances. This glitzy musical serves as the perfect escape from the mundane modern world. 

After seeing Anything Goes’ electrifying dance numbers, and its funny yet poignant story, audiences of all ages will find that in the glitz and glamor of the 1930s, “Anything Goes!” Don’t miss your chance to see another production by the award-winning Summit High School Performing Arts program!

Lincoln-Hubbard alumni Juliette Medenica, Sofia Medenica, Rosie Gaeta, Sophie Gaeta, and  Ben Schachne will be performing on the SHS stage!

Performances are in the SHS Auditorium on Wed, Feb 28 at 6 pm; Thurs, Feb 29, & Fri, March 1 at 7 pm; and Sat, March 2 at 1 pm and 7 pm. Livestream is available for purchase for Friday and Saturday evening shows. Tickets are $15 for students and seniors and $20 for adults:
