As you probably know, Tuesday night was our big night celebrating one year of operation of Sphere College! Many people pulled together to make the celebration a success, and I want to thank them all:
Employees and volunteers at the Colonial Theatre gracefully handled so many aspects of the event, including going above and beyond to make sure the films submitted to the Film Contest were playable. Ted the Fiddler, who really put a great deal of time and effort into accomodating us. Ryan, who assisted with sound.
Students of the College who provided food.
Jesse Crater, who handled many aspects of the Film Contest.
Jonathan Stewart, who designed the program booklet and got our sign made.
The businesses that took out ads in the program booklet.
Many businesses and individuals who generously contributed items for the raffle.
Peggy Farley and Matt Comiskey who did considerable work making the raffle a success.
The supporters of the College who attended.
All the participants in the first annual Sphere College Short Film Contest.
Virginia Stewart who had to deal with me as I prepared for the event.
Janet Jepsen and Diversity in Action for moving the meeting to accommodate our event.
Everyone who came out to share the evening with us!
I apologize in advance for any inadvertent omissions. Let me know about it I’ll add you to the list!
By the way, the winners of the film contest are listed on the Film Contest page. Take a look!
What’s next? We continue with our classes—right now we’re discussing feminine and masculine in the character of Portia in Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice—and looking ahead at the next steps for evolving the College to the next level.
We are extremely pleased to announce that Sphere College was selected as the beneficiary of a fundraiser, A Black and White Affair, scheduled for May 7 on the third floor of Molly Maguire’s in Phoenixville! We’ll provide more details in a future post, but mark your calendars now!
