Art After Five

The next fundraising Art After Five, sponsored by Mark and Pat Evans and Mary Anne Harp, at the Roger Tory Peterson Institute will be a week from Wednesday on August 21. For $10, attendees will enjoy food and drink, music, and the opportunity to view the current Ned Smith exhibit.

Music will be by Chautauqua Brass, a New York-based chamber ensemble dedicated to communicating through music and guiding others. They were also on the roster for the Warren Concert Association last season.

The event will be held from 5 to 7 p.m.

If you are familiar with Pennsylvania Game News from the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, you are probably already a fan of Ned Smith’s art. He was an artist with the PA Game Commission and 120 of his paintings were used as cover art for PA Game News.

Art After Five is open to the public.

Active intruder drill

The Warren County School District is participating in a multi-agency active intruder drill on Tuesday, Aug. 20, at Eisenhower Elementary School and Eisenhower Middle/High School. The drill, scheduled from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m., will focus on the responses necessary for law enforcement and other community entities that would be on site in the event of an active intruder or mass casualty incident.

Anyone in the area of the school during the drill will see a large number of emergency vehicles and may hear gunfire resulting from the use of simulated ammunition (simunition) by law enforcement. Please do not be alarmed; these are all parts of the drill designed to mimic real-life situations that may be encountered.

EES and EMHS will be closed to the public on the day of the drill.

Anyone needing to conduct business with the school (for example, student registration) should contact the Warren County School District office at (814) 723-6900. Anyone with questions regarding the drill should contact the office of Buildings and Grounds at (814) 723-6900, extension 1117.
