than a mannequin
Western's Student Emergency Response Team was the recipient of a "Little Anne" training "manikin," valued at $250, as part of a draw held on Jan. 8 by the London and Middlesex branch of the Canadian Red Cross to promote the awareness of CPR.
The draw was open to any authorized provider of a Red Cross first aid course in the London community. One ballot was entered in the draw for every course, which were offered during November and December.
"SERT does a lot of training on campus, and [does] a wonderful job," explained Kim Misener of the London and Middlesex branch of the Canadian Red Cross. "They are very valuable to the community."
A prize presentation and photo opportunity will be held at 810 Commissioners Rd. E. on Monday, Jan. 20 at 11 a.m..
The play's the thing...
Western's Talbot Theatre will play host to the Gilbert and Sullivan production of Yeomen of the Guard from Jan. 16-25. It will be the fourth time in the theatre's 49 years that they have presented the play.
Set in the Tower of London, Yeomen of The Guard follows the exploits of war hero Colonel Fairfax, as he attempts to covet a wife during the few remaining hours before he is condemned to be executed on a false charge of sorcery.
"Quality will be the same as always," explained Dean Sheppard, head of publicity for the play. "There's a live orchestra, a big cast and professional customs and set designs. It is a bit more grand - more dramatic. It's more like an opera than a comedy."
Advanced tickets for the show are $22 and $25 at the door; evening performances begin at 8 p.m., and matinees at 2 p.m.. On Tuesday Jan. 21, tickets are specially priced for students at $17.
