Riverside to Host Medication Disposal Event

ONANCOCK, Virginia – The US Drug Enforcement Agency encourages the proper and safe disposal of unused and expired prescription medications as one method of combatting medication misuse, overdoses and overdose deaths.

Unused prescription drugs can find their way into the wrong hands, and the outcome can be dangerous or even tragic.  Disposing of unused or expired medications in the trash can endanger humans who are looking for drugs or animals who are looking for food, and flushing the medications can endanger the local water supply.

In partnership with the Accomack County Sheriff’s office and the Community Services Board, Riverside will host a medication collection event at the Riverside Onancock campus on April 27, the DEA’s semi-annual National Prescription Drug Take Back Day.

On that day, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., community members can conveniently and anonymously hand over unwanted medications in a secure drive-through event at Riverside and be assured of safe disposal.  Riverside cannot accept liquids, needles or sharps, only pills or patches.  Signage on the campus will direct participants where to go.  In case of inclement weather, the event will be moved indoors.

AACA Cruise in at Blue Crow Antique Mall

The AACA will have a car show-cruise in at the Blue Crow Antique Mall Saturday from 11 a.m. until 4 p.m.

There will be dash plaques, trophies, live music,  50/50 raffle, give-a-ways and family fun.

Broadwater Academy Performing Arts Department presents: Little Shop of Horrors

This spring, Broadwater Academy’s Performing Arts Department will present the classic Broadway musical “Little Shop of Horrors,” a dark comedy, running April 26 and 27 at 7pm. The story follows young botanical genius Seymour Krelborn who works in Mushnik’s Skid Row Florists, a failing floral shop. During a total eclipse of the sun, he discovers a new breed of plant, whom he names Audrey II. While the plant brings in big business to the shop there is one slight issue. Instead of plant food, Audrey II hungers for blood; that is, human blood. As Audrey II begins to grow, he promises Seymour fame and fortune, but only if he keeps providing blood. Seymour then has to discover how much fame and success mean to him, and decide if anyone truly deserves to die.

The cast includes Broadwater students from grades 7-12, with Delaney Petka starring as Seymour Krelborn, Emma Philpot as Audrey, Tommy Ertle as Mr. Mushnik, Ivan Whitaker as Audrey II, and Jesse Floyd as Orin Scrivello. Other cast members include schoolgirls Crystal, Ronnette and Chiffon, played by Nicholle Perkins, Ava Webb, and Elise Adler, as well as Reporters played by Addison Morris and Derek Boyle.

The score, played by a live pit band composed of both Broadwater students and teachers, is inspired by the music of the 1960s. The show also features four handmade Audrey II puppets of varying sizes, puppeteered by students Addison Morris and John Queen.

The performance runs for roughly under two hours with a fifteen minute intermission. The performances will be held in the Broadwater Academy Fine Arts Center on April 26 and 27 at 7pm, and tickets are free.
