Flags for the Fallen

The Armed Forces Student Association will be planting a flag garden in the Arboretum in honor of Remembrance Day.  One flag will be planted for each soldier that has been killed in theater since 9/11.  This will be a fund and awareness-raising event.  $1 will plant 1 flag.  Proceeds will be donated to Bentley Conrad, 1-year-old son of Sgt. TJ Conrad. 

Sgt. Conrad was killed in Afghanistan during a demonstration over the burning of Qurans earlier this year.   His wife Holly moved to the Roanoke area so Bentley would grow up with his father’s family.  We want to show them that we have not forgotten the sacrifices they have all made for our country.

Donations are being accepted on an on-going basis.  There is a collection jar in the financial aid office, and more will be popping up around campus.  We are planning to have all the flags planted during the entire month of November. 

Donations may be made in honor or memory of any soldier, from any conflict.  These particular donations will be recognized on a memorial wall in Chapman Hall, also during November.

For more information, please contact Michele Hilts at 857-7395 or mhilts@virginiawestern.edu.

Mixed Nuts

This weekend is your last chance to catch the Virginia Western Theatre's presentation of Mixed Nuts!

Mixed Nuts, is a comedy by Nancy Manera and Simon J. Donoghue What happens when a shy, aspiring writer from the Midwest comes to the Big Apple in search of fame and fortune? For Michael Caldwell, life becomes a series of hilarious encounters with the unpredictable residents of his dilapidated apartment house. Among them are Marshall Ryan, a commercial actor who specializes in portraying inanimate objects; Tanya Romanov, a Russian ballerina on the lam from the KGB; and Philomena Della Vecchia, a wisecracking actress. Phil may be the woman of Michael's dreams if he can just keep her quite long enough to tell her. To retain his own sanity, Michael retreats to his fantasies, only to find that the world of his imagination is even more nerve-wracking than the reality surrounding him!

  • Friday, November 2 at 8 p.m.
