Starting one Week from Tonight!

Take it from me, you will not be disappointed in this hilarious play performed by our very own Collingtonians.  It is really a hoot, or I should rather say a honk.

Three French veterans of the Great War—Gustave, Philippe, and Henri—sit ensconced on their terrace and bemoan the tedium of life in a home for old soldiers. Where are the glories of past campaigns; where are the women; why put up with Sister Madeleine? And what, pray, is so dangerous about February 12th? Why not flee to Indochina, or least have a picnic? And what are the waving poplars across the hill telling them? Perhaps they should join the flight of the wild geese.

The play will be produced Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, November 15, 16, and 17 at 7:00 in the Collington Auditorium.

The Growing Coven of Collington Witches!

At this year’s Halloween party for our staff’s children, there were more witches than ever, offering games, food, drink and other forms of fun and hospitality.  From the pictures below, you may be able to see for yourselves which witches are which!

Here is the breaking news update:

Looks Like the Obama Family Is looking Into Retiring to Collington (Humor)

The evidence so far is slim, but here it is.  Yesterday there was only one non-US view to our website, and that was from Kenya.

QED.

The family is coordinating.  What other explanation could there be?

Seriously, wouldn’t a good way to think about our strategic planning process be to ask how we could make this a place the Obamas would want to come to?

And, its true, we don’t discriminate against those of Kenyan birth.
