A great show
To the Editor: Both the December 2012 production of “A Christmas Carol” and this month’s production of “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland,” by the Corsicana Children’s (Theater) Company reveals C. David Hill’s unique contribution.
As teacher of the youth theater classes, and director of both productions, he has proven to benefit the program in three ways. First, he facilitates a joyous experience for youth and parents by virtue of his joi de vivre, strength for effective teaching at three levels, and hospitable spirit to include the parents in productions.
Second, he adamantly proclaimed the importance of reading literature, for “Without literature, we would not have theater.” At both the December and March productions in the pre-show speech, he and a youth drew the number of an audience member under 12 who would win the book that the production was based upon.
Third, Hill enthusiastically promoted the “main stage” season productions in his pre-show speeches. In December, he happily forecast the entire 42nd season, saying he had seen every show, and that they’re all “kid friendly.”
“Bring your young ones to the main stage shows,” he told us then.
A few weeks ago, he told us of “The 39 Steps up in May.” It will have aspects of Alfred Hitchcock, Monty Python, romance, and an incredible slew of characters performed by just five actors!
Congratulations to all the young people and their parents and guardians, for making time to bring literature to life once again! Studies have shown that participating in live theatrical projects builds confidence and teamwork skills in the individuals. Add to those gifts the opportunity to work with the fine person of Hill — whose recent stellar acting role on the main stage as that of a special needs person is so memorable — and we know the youth, their families, their schools, and the entire community are blessed.
To the Editor: The Board of Family Service Association, Ed Monk, President, would like to extend a heartfelt thank you for your attendance, donations and support for the Musical Benefit Fundraiser held on Dec. 8, 2012, at Lifeline Family Church.

Our purpose is to help the needy and indigent in Navarro County, with food, clothing, utility bills, housing, medical needs, and so many other ways we can be a blessing.
Your contribution is tax deductible.

To the Editor: A letter to Corsicana Mayor Chuck McClanahan:
I was saddened to read the story in the paper stating the city was planning to close the public swimming pools so that a for-profit water park located on the edge of town across an Interstate highway could make a little more money.
