The Drawer Boy – Season Special
By Michael Healy
Directed by Josh Antoon
Thursday, September 20 / Friday, September 21 / Saturday, September 22 @ 7:30 P.M. / Sunday, September 23 @ 3:00 P.M.
The scene is the rural landscape of Ontario, Canada. Two old friends, Morgan and Angus, own and work a dairy farm. Fresh from a theatre troupe in Toronto comes young Miles, a brash method actor who wants to immerse himself in farm life before assuming a role. It doesn’t take Miles long to see that Angus is damaged and that Morgan fiercely protects a secret from their past. This is a beautifully drawn character study of loss, friendship, and forgiveness in which a young actor learns that the most meaningful dramas do not necessarily take place on the stage.
Sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce.

All Household Chemical Collection events are held on Saturdays, 9:00 am – 1:00 pm, rain or shine. Participant fee: $3.00 per gallon, cash only (a few exceptions apply).
Household Chemical Wastes are waste products produced in our homes that are hazardous in nature, but are not regulated as hazardous waste under federal and state laws. They are typically left over products that are no longer usable, leftover, or unwanted. You can identify a product as hazardous by words such as CAUTION, WARNING, POISON, or FLAMMABLE on the label.
Each person in Pennsylvania produces an average of four pounds of chemical waste each year for a total of about 25,000 tons/yr. statewide. If carelessly managed, these consumer waste products can create environmental and public health hazards.
What is Household Chemical Waste
Household Chemical Waste generally falls into six categories:
Cleaning Products: aerosols, bathroom cleaners, drain cleaners, chlorine bleach, solvents, spot removers, toilet cleaners, oven cleaners, rug and floor cleaners, furniture polish.
Auto Maintenance: car waxes, starting fluids, solvent cleaners, antifreeze, repair products, batteries, brake fluid, motor oil, and gasoline.
Home Environment and Improvement Supplies: oil based stains and paints, caulking, varnish, paint thinners, chemical strippers, fire extinguishers, flea collars and sprays, insect repellents, insecticides, kerosene, lighter fluid, lye, mothballs, and pool chemicals.
Hobby Products: glues, paints, stains, finishes, contact cement, and photographic chemicals.
Personal Care and Pharmaceuticals: nail polish and remover, hair color, prescription and over-the-counter drugs, and mercury thermometers.

Beaver Fall Fest and Touch-a-Truck
Join us on Saturday, October 20 from 10am-2pm at the Beaver Area High School for the Beaver Fall Fest and Touch-a-Truck.
From fire trucks and police cars to construction trucks and tractors, Beaver Borough, Beaver Police Department and Beaver Fire Department are bringing Touch-a-Truck to town for the kids to have a hands-on experience with these real-life vehicles.
Over at the pavilion, Beaver Fall Fest will include a pumpkin patch with decorating stations, a balloon twisting artist, arts and crafts, a photo booth, and a parade complete with trick-or-treating for the kids in their costumes. We will have several food trucks near the tennis courts, so come hungry!
