Make Strong Communities "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity." — Psalm 133:1 The time may never come when all men kneel in the same church. But here is a unity in Christianity, in Christian charity. If we follow the concepts of Christianity, we must rule out distrust and hatred. If we practice Christian charity, tensions begin to fade away and there comes a unity born of understanding. Jesus once said "with God all things are possible." This is true. And the truth becomes more evident as we live and pursue a life of Christian charity.

COME IN My Fair Lady Set For Stage At Garrigan Ever wonder how operettas are born? "My Fair Lady", presently being produced by Garrigan High School has a rather interesting background. It apparently began with a Greek myth. This myth said that a sculptor by the name of Pygmalion created a statue so beautiful that he fell In love with it. Through the Intervention of the Greek goddess of love, Pygmalion's statue, Galatea, came to life. The legend claimed that he then married her. From George Bernard Shaw's play comes the operetta by Alan Jay Lerner. Music by Frederich Loewe is added, the story is changed but the basic idea remains. Professor Henry Higgins, a phonetics teacher, undertakes the task of transforming an ordinary flower girl from Convent garden into a great lady. The supreme test, pass her off as a duchess at the Embassy ball. All of these things helped form "My Fair Lady." So, don't forget that performances are to be given between March 28 and April 2 at the Garrigan High School auditorium.
