May 28,2016: Big Fish

Based on the celebrated novel by Daniel Wallace and the acclaimed Columbia Pictures film directed by Tim Burton, Big Fish is the extraordinary tale of Edward Bloom, a traveling salesman who lives life to the fullest…and then some! Edward’s incredible, larger-than-life stories thrill everyone around him – except, perhaps, his pragmatic son Will. But as Will prepares for the birth of his own son, he is determined to find the real-life truth behind his father’s epic “fish stories”.

Recommended for ages 12 and up. The equivalent movie rating would be PG-13.

DIRECTED CHOREOGRAPHED BY Mitchell Greco

AmericanTown’s Heroes: Feedback Aims to Curtail Food Waste

We all love to see the supermarket shelves stocked with new items and fresh produce. It makes the store look better and may even make us want to purchase more. What many of us may not realize is that a good deal of the food that doesn’t look quite perfect or is heading toward its expiration date is being tossed in the garbage, without a chance for a second life.

Recent estimates suggest something like 40% of the food in what we call industrialized nations goes to waste. According to the UN Food and Agriculture Organisation “roughly one-third of the edible parts of food produced for human consumption, gets lost or wasted globally, which is about 1.3 billion ton per year.”

All that food could be doing a world of good to people in this country and abroad who go to bed hungry at night. So, what can we do about it? For one, we can become aware and do our part to reduce, reuse and recycle, like we did when we became aware of how recycling cans, glass, paper and plastic could keep waste out of landfills and keep the planet a little cleaner for a little bit longer.

One organization you may have heard about is called Feedback and they have a number of branches like Feeding the 5000, which is an effort to show people how good meals can be made with food that might have been tossed. They have been traveling around the country gathering fans, friends and volunteers and working with local chefs and others to cook up tasty meals with ingredients previously bound for the dumpster. You know, that funny looking tomato or a bruised apple, not quite tempting enough for Snow White.

If you want to support the effort to reduce global food waste, you can join the movement or donate, but the best way to get involved is to become aware of your own habits and see what can be done at home and at your local markets to change perceptions about food waste.

Do you know someone or a group of people who are working to reduce, recycle, reuse food that would otherwise be bound for the trash? Nominate them for next week’s AmericanTown’s Heroes.

The Buckingham Hosts Spring Style Show and Luncheon

The Buckingham, an SQLC retirement community, recently welcomed spring with a ladies “Style is Ageless” fashion show and luncheon. Invited guests embraced the warmer season as Houston stylist Nancy Wilfong showcased the latest trends from designer boutique Bags and More. The style show debuted this spring and summers’ most sought-after looks, including soft pastels, bold prints, fringe and other trends hitting stores this season. Ten models, all residents of The Buckingham, walked down the runway to provide an up-close peek at this season’s designs.  

Residents and guests were dazzled by Wilfong’s style secrets sure to keep them current this spring and summer. Residents also enjoyed mingling with invited guests during the lunch portion of the event. The “Style is Ageless” fashion show and luncheon was an extension of the Masterpiece Living® philosophy, which serves as the community’s foundation. The philosophy embraces a wellness-minded attitude and encourages learning by focusing on an individual’s key development areas—social, mental, physical and spiritual.

“We were delighted to host the “Style is Ageless” fashion show and luncheon,” said Julie Fenske, executive director of The Buckingham. “It’s a fun event that gives residents and invited guests a chance to socialize and enjoy learning about this season’s summer fashions.”

The “Style is Ageless” fashion show wrapped up with a grand finale of the ladies modeling umbrellas uniquely designed by a Houston photographer.
