Sober Truth

SoberTruth1      SoberTruth2

On April 18th, Susan Baker from the Ohio Investigative Unit spoke to parents and students at Seneca East Schools about the dangers, consequences, and laws of underage drinking.  She shared with the audience real-life situations which ended up costing families lives and money. “If parents are convicted of providing alcohol to underage youth, they can receive six months in jail and/or receive a $1000 fine”.  Parents are not allowed to provide alcohol to their children’s friends or allow their children to drink alcohol at someone else’s home. She gave the example of where a girl who drank one beer left a party with a friend who had passed out from drinking and met up with another group leaving the party.  The two cars began racing down the road and her car flipped and landed on its roof. The boy suffered extensive injuries and died. The family sued her family for $250,000 and won. Remember, she only had one 12 oz. beer but made a poor choice that was not only costly to her for the amount of money but for the life of a friend.

Proms and graduations are right around the corner.  She asked, “What would you do if your bestie brings alcohol to your graduation party?”  Some of the responses were “Tell that person they can not have it and you don’t want it at your party”,  “Tell your parents so they can confiscate it”, etc. Susan Baker went through the Ohio laws on underage drinking and commented, “Kids have so much to face today, why would you put alcohol in their hands?”

The evening was very informative for all that attended.  We had Charla VanOsdol and Nicole Twarek from CARSA (Community Action for Reducing Substance Abuse) and Sharon George and Austin Willman from SMYL(Seneca Mentoring Youth Links) set up tables with resources available.  Several of the SADD members helped to make sure things run smoothly. Allison Drown, SADD president, did a wonderful job of hosting the event. After Susan Baker’s presentation, several door prizes were handed out to parents and students.  Lewis Salmons won the 2 free tickets to prom and the grand prize winner was Mykah Vogt who, along with his friends, will arrive to prom in style in an all expense paid limo ride.

SADD would like to thank Susan Baker for her informative but yet entertaining presentation, Charla VanOsdol, Nicole Twarek, Sharon George, and Austin Willman for sharing their resources, SADD members who volunteered to help at the event,  but most of all, for the Mental Health and Recovery Services Board of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties for funding this event in part through levy funds.

We would also like to thank the following for their generous donations:

The Republic Banking Co., Bloomville Chiropractic, Inc., North Central Electric, Seneca Publishing, LLC, McWilliams Chiropractic Clinic, Inc., SK Miller Insurance, LLC, Terry McConnell Excavating, LLC, Sutton Bank, Backroads Diner, C.A.

SE Tiger Jazz Band 2018

jazzband2

On Thursday April 12, 2018, the Tiger Jazz Band, directed by Mrs. Dana Willman, participated in the Pro Music Festival, held in Tiffin University’s new recording arts building, the Marion Center.  They performed 4 pieces for other jazz bands who also performed throughout the day. A panel of judges, including Nathan Santos, who has worked with the SE Jazz Band before, gave an onstage clinic following each performance.  The experience was educational and informative, as well as entertaining. Lunch at Fort Ball was included in their day. These 29 performers were great representatives of Seneca East.

A huge thank you to the many parents, families, and friends who attended to support our group, and to our bus driver Ida, and to our chaperones for their tremendous help all day.  A Guest performer, Chloe Feoranzo performed and gave special hints on how to play improvisation to the students in the afternoon. Several of the SE students were brave enough to go onstage to work with her in front of everyone, playing on the spot and enjoying the music.  That evening, a special performance was held with Chloe performing on clarinet, tenor sax, and voice, along with several music professors from Tiffin University. Mrs. Willman attended and remarked what a tremendously uplifting concert it was with professionals playing Dixieland repertoire.  

Music is a lifelong skill and means of enjoyment for all.  We invite our fans to come hear the Jazz Band play for the Teacher’s Appreciation concert on the front courtyard lawn on Wednesday May 9th from 7:10-7:40 am, and at the Spring Band Awards Concert on Sunday May 20 around 3:45 pm.
