New Bedford --- The Your Theatre, Inc. Annual Volunteer Appreciation and Award Party, held on Sunday afternoon August 26 at the Inner Bay Café & Grill Restaurant in New Bedford, was a shining success.
The event, only open to those who had contributed a substantial amount of their time as volunteers on or off the stage during the recently completed YTI season, was attended by approximately 45 volunteers and guests. The attendees spent a relaxing afternoon catching up on news, sharing past experiences and talking of expectations for YTI's future. The weather was hot, but beautiful and many of the guests spent a good deal of time on the deck enjoying the panoramic view of Clark's Cove and the distant Elizabeth Islands.
The party culminated with the awarding of the Volunteer of The Year gold stars to Al Vitale of New Bedford and Ann Shor of Marion for their many years of dedicated service. The presentation of awards was followed by a performance of the comedy sketch "Here We Are" and the drawing for several valuable door prizes.
YTI offers opportunities for volunteers to participate in such areas as set construction, lighting/sound, publicity and many more. Anyone wishing further information about becoming a YTI volunteer should call the theatre at 508-993-0772 or e-mail email@example.com.
