Tony was part of the entertainment at our church auction last weekend. He dressed up as something like Bigfoot, a monster called the Wooley Booger who supposedly haunts Camp Magruder, a Methodist camp where we have our church family camp every fall. The auction theme was Camp Going Going Gone, and he was supposed to be a large, hairy prop. He also handed out fliers advertising family camp in October. This is the first of several photos showing his transformation (or as I call it, bringing out his true character).

Outskirts Press Announces Mab’s Cross Trilogy, the Latest Highly-Anticipated Fiction/Historical Book from Woolwich, ME, Author Jon Norris

Denver, CO and Woolwich, ME (PRWEB) June 28, 2007

Outskirts Press, Inc. has published Mab’s Cross Trilogy: Volume I: The Lost Rebellion by Jon Norris, which is the author’s most recent book to date. The 6 x 9 paperback in the Fiction/Historical category is available worldwide on book retailer websites such as Amazon and Barnes & Noble for a suggested retail price of .95. The webpage at www.outskirtspress.com/mabscross was launched simultaneously with the book’s publication.

About the Book (Excerpts & Info) :

A Sequel to Braveheart.

A prequel to The Da Vinci Code.

A quest for truth in an age of darkness.

The Mab’s Cross Trilogy is an epic love story set in the 14th Century. Society was in upheaval. Magna Carta had awakened the promise of human rights, the Roman Church was crumbling from within, famine ravaged the land, the French king hijacked the Holy See to Avignon and annihilated the Knights Templar, a band of starving Scots humiliated the English at Bannockburn, and Edward II died in a Welsh dungeon. In the lawless marchlands of Lancashire, Sir William Bradshaw and his Lady Mab refused to surrender their dreams to the chaos, and their love for each other created a legend that will not die. The ruins of the cross that bears Mab’s name can still be seen on the Standishgate in Wigan, Lancashire. After 700 years, it remains as a humble tribute to a noble dream. The story of that cross reveals a world torn by tyranny and rebellion, faith and betrayal, hot-blooded chivalry and cold-blooded murder; and yet it also celebrates the rebirth of Reason after a thousand years of darkness.

Deftly constructed at 336 pages, Mab’s Cross Trilogy: Volume I: The Lost Rebellion is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction/Historical category.

Spanish Workshop for Children Introduces Latest Princeton Center Central NJ Spanish Immersion Program Preparing Young People for Future Academic Success

Princeton, NJ (PRWEB) December 15, 2008

Spanish Workshop for Children, a total Spanish immersion program, has introduced its latest center in Princeton, N.J. This newest center brings Spanish Workshop for Children’s total number of locales to five. The central New Jersey location, housed at Trinity Church in Princeton, joins Blue Bell, Rosemont and Yardley, Pa. as well as Cherry Hill, N.J. on the Spanish Workshop for Children roster. Under the direction of Marcela Summerville, Spanish Workshop for Children enrollees enjoy a distinctive Spanish-teaching methodology and curriculum. Summerville is a two-time Parent’s Choice Award-winning author, has been the co-chair for the ACTFL-LLC-SIG (American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages) and has been appointed Pennsylvania State Representative of NNELL (National Network of Early Language Learning) since November 2004, where she advocates early language learning.

The city of Princeton, N.J., boasts a long educational tradition. It is the home of a top-rated Ivy League university as well as the Educational Testing Service, which tests and scores students’ competency to enter such prestigious institutions of higher learning. Princeton-area residents don’t have to wait until their children reach high school, however, to avail themselves to all the academic advantages the region has to offer. In fact, they can now start leveraging such opportunities at the toddler and preschool levels by enrolling their future academic stars in Spanish Workshop for Children.

Spanish Workshop for Children positions itself with the slogan “Where a Good Beginning Never Ends,” a mantra that educational statistics prove holds merit. Indeed, according to the College Board, students who average four or more years of foreign language study scored higher on the verbal section of the SAT than those who had studied four or more years of any other subject matter. With its latest Princeton locale, Spanish Workshop for Children affords more children than ever the opportunity to ascend the academic ranks.

Currently, 245 families are enrolled in the total Spanish immersion program, with nearly 80 percent of them having re-enrolled from previous years. The program enjoys such a success rate thanks in large part to its departure from traditional curriculum. Instead, it takes a fun, natural and easy approach to learning a foreign language.

Simon Richter, professor and chair of the Department of German at the University of Pennsylvania, speaks highly of his Spanish Workshop for Children experience. “I’ve never seen total immersion for kids like this. Marcela takes the children on a journey into a Spanish-speaking world that engages their minds, their bodies, their imaginations and their sense of fun. Marcela is the Peter Pan of Spanish-language immersion for children. Our son Toby has been completely captivated.”

Spanish Workshop for Children runs a variety of sessions, with the half-day Preescolar Program being one of the most popular. Winter sessions, including those held at the Princeton location, begin in January 2009.

To learn how your Princeton-area toddler or preschooler can academically benefit from the total Spanish immersion program, contact Marcela Summerville at (610) 489-5595.
