A title known the world over, “Elf The Musical” is a hilarious fish-out-of-water comedy based on the beloved holiday film starring Will Ferrell.
Buddy, a young orphan, mistakenly crawls into Santa’s bag of gifts and is transported to the North Pole. The would-be elf is raised, unaware that he is actually a human, until his enormous size and poor toy-making abilities cause him to face the truth. With Santa’s permission, Buddy embarks on a journey to New York City to discover his true identity.
Faced with the harsh realities that his father is on the naughty list and his half-brother doesn’t even believe in Santa, Buddy is determined to win over his new family and help New York remember the true meaning of Christmas.
Throughout the holiday season, customers just might find a golden ticket in their box of chocolates. Fifteen lucky customers will win the chance to tour the Esther Price factories in production on January 11, 2020 and taste the freshly-made chocolates hot off the production line. This event marks the first time the company has opened the factory doors to the public and the winners will get an exclusive behind the scenes tour.
The company has placed fifteen tickets within their one-pound boxes of mixed, milk, and dark assorted chocolates across their 8 stores. Esther Price will be releasing clues of the remaining tickets’ whereabouts to those who follow them on Instagram or Facebook. The campaign will take place November 1st, 2019 through January 11,2020 or until all tickets are claimed.
According to Esther Price’s Barbara Dressman, district manager, the company can’t wait to meet some of their fans and share the brand’s process with them. “This is just such a fun way for us to meet some of our customers and share our love for candy. We are so excited to meet the winners who find the golden tickets and take them on a chocolate tasting tour!”
To cut down on forgeries, customers will have to present the ticket at the start of the tour for entrance and are asked not to post a photo of the back of the ticket on social media. Those lucky few that find the tickets are instructed to contact the company on social media and redeem the code on the back.

Five Rivers MetroParks is taking applications and scheduling interviews for the 2020 MetroParks volunteer naturalist service learning classes. Volunteers will focus on natural history and the interpretive, or storytelling, aspects of conservation. Being a naturalist is a state of mind. Becoming a naturalist is a journey – a vocation that calls for the exercise of both artistic creativity and scientific discipline. Becoming a naturalist requires that you both teach and learn – providing opportunities to share your knowledge, interests and talents with others in a classroom without boundaries. Naturalists are individuals who find new and fun ways to help others realize the depth of their relationship with the natural world. This program introduction will allow you to discover program details, decide if this is the leadership opportunity for you, and get you started on the next steps to participate in this exciting program.

The timing is particularly meaningful because the play is based on letters sent home by soldiers dating from to the American Revolution to modern day emails from Iraq and Afghanistan. It is a powerful look at war and its effect on the people serving and their families at home.
