May 27 was an exciting night for kids and parents alike with a performance of “The Very Un-merry Adventures of Robin Hood,” a play directed by McCormick Drama Club adviser Emily Campofredano.
Every aspect of the play was created by the kids, from the set designs to who’s running the lights and sounds to the person saying cues.
The night was made even more exciting by the donation of a painting by Nancy Greetham, a 1952 Wellington graduate who has won numerous awards for her artwork. The painting — a watercolor painting of Pat Lindley and her red wagon full of books in front of the Herrick Memorial Library — was donated to the Patricia Lindley Center for the Performing Arts.
“I think it’s wonderful for the kids,” said Greetham when asked about the center named after her old friend. “You would always see Pat with her red wagon taking the books to the hospital or other places.”
The painting will be on display in the new McCormick Middle School library.
