Green Meadow Playground Volunteers

The Green Meadow Playground Committee NEEDS your help on Saturday, October 18 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.! This is step one in our commitment to update and beautify the GM playground. We will be replacing a fence around the playground, refreshing the surface of the play area, and repairing broken equipment.

Sign up for a two hour block or the whole time. (Adults only; due to heavy equipment use, this event is not suitable for kids).

MHS Announces its 2015 Musical - Bye Bye Birdie!

Bye Bye Birdie is a wonderful, lighthearted family show based in the ‘50’s.  The story highlights rock idol Conrad Birdie who has just been drafted and the teens in town can’t believe it. He will be coming to Sweet Apple Ohio to bestow a kiss on one lucky girl, Kim MacAfee, before he leaves to join the service. Conrad’s agent and songwriter, Albert, is caught between his overbearing mother and his fiancée of 8 years, Rosie, while he is trying to sort out things with Conrad.  This musical is great fun and nostalgic look back into a special decade of American history.

Auditions are the week of Oct. 20-24th with sign ups across from the ticket booth by the HS theatre.  This is primarily a High School show, but there is one role with a few lines, spoken and sung, for a middle school boy-Randolf, and also the possibility of 2-3 more middle school children for town scenes (no lines).

Anyone in the community interested in working in the show-especially with sound, lighting, set building and painting, prop making, costuming, ads for the program, please contact Mrs. Blanchard at:

Our performances create a wonderful community of Maynard-ites all working together, enjoying their creativity and making the show come alive! Be part of the family!  Please wear comfortable clothes for the dance portion and eat before you come!  Bring a bottle of water-you’ll need it J
