And so it begins and ends again. When you think of it that is what happens in our lives. Each and every day something begins, something else ends and we deal with more and more things that are in the middle. I sometimes wonder if my life was a book how I would create the chapters and exactly how many of them there are exactly.... who knows.
This week I started Directing and Producing the 2008 Summer Youth Theater Show - JESUS CHRIST, SUPERSTAR. It will be held this year at Batavia High School in August. This is a real treat for me because once upon a time, I was Jesus in Superstar and it was an amazing experience. My wife played Mary Magadeline in fact. Now it comes full circle. I am working with 70 plus young people to bring this classic to the stage. I find that all truly amazing. So that was this week's beginning.
The ending was the successful vote for the propositions and the City of Batavia School Budget. This was my friend Dick Stutzman's last budget, he retires in July. Dick and I have been through a ton of budgets and we were successful with most all. If the public knew all the work it took to put to together a $39 Million budget, you would understand. We have succeeded here because of the due dilligence of Dick Stutzman, first as our Assistant to the Business Administrator, then as the Business Administrator and finally as our Superintendent of Schools. Batavia City Schools have been so lucky to have this wonderful caring veteran working daily on the behalf of our students. One thing I can say about him is that he always participated, always was willing to learn and share and always worked hard for the children. He cared for this district. If you see him - pass along some thanks.
And now to the future. A little vacation the end of this month, the end of the long Primary Season that will bring us our nominees and more late nights and trips to the south of Warsaw to relax and have fun...doing summer stuff.....which reminds me.... The average temperature for the month of May is like 65..... Have we hit that yet....???? Who knows...that is probably in another chapter.
