Veteran’s Day was marked by a new tradition in Ephrata as volunteers placed 400 luminaries along the Ephrata Rail Trail near the proposed site of the Borough’s Veteran’s Plaza and the new Richard Winters Memorial Trail. The luminary tribute began at dusk and paid honor to the countless men and women who have given their lives for our freedom. Visitors to the display could visit with veterans and even see a restored WWII Jeep, which was parked at the trail entrance. Shown is a view of the special event.

 

Ephrata 528 Theatre To Present Fall Production

The Ephrata Intermediate/Middle School (EMS) 528 theatre will be presenting their fall production titled “Eggplants and Vampires” on Friday, November 21 and Saturday, November 22 at 7:00 p.m. The agricultural town of Gulch Valley, California, is the self-proclaimed tomato capital of the world, so it only makes sense that the Tomato Jam Café is the hub of activity in town. For instance, famous romance writer Sallie Means, a former resident of Gulch Valley, returns home and sets up her office in the cafe, hoping to overcome her writer’s block and crank out her next bestseller. Oh, did we mention that Walt, who runs the cafe, takes care of more than just his customers? Unbeknownst to anyone else in town, he’s also a friend to vampires, providing them with a safe place to stay when they’re being hunted by vampire hunters and other obsessed citizens. Luckily, their ’special drink’ that Walt keeps for them looks an awful lot like tomato juice! But when the biggest employer in town is bought out, the new management (more like mismanagement!) sends the next crop of tomato plants to Miami and ships eggplants instead. Eggplants instead of tomatoes?! How will the town, and the vampires, survive? The intertwining storylines come fast and funny in this easy-to-stage comedy!
