#b#Help for ‘Miss H’#/b#

Readers of this paper likely recall Miss H. She is the homeless woman, who for many years spent time in front of the Marshalls in the Windsor Green shopping center on Route 1. Two years ago a few local women, after much effort, arranged an apartment for Miss H. at Luther Towers in Trenton. As they did when Miss H. was homeless, they continue to assist her with trips to the food store and other errands and they provide companionship. So far, so good.

We write to you now as there is an ongoing need to provide for Miss H’s rent ($500 per month). If you remember Miss H. or simply find her situation compelling and you wish to lend support; your donation would be most welcome. Donations of all sizes are needed and welcome. Each “Angel” donation of $500 will provide one month of shelter and is extremely welcome.

Checks may be made payable to Edward Megargee, 21 Towpath Court, Princeton 08540. Inquiries may be made at 609-712-0004 or by E-mail: edmegargee@gmail.com.

All donations will be recorded and available for review.

Edward Megargee

Editor’s note: Megargee is a vice president at a Roszel Road-based firm and has volunteered to coordinate the efforts of those assisting the formerly homeless Miss H.

#b#Lockwood’s 50th#/b#

On Tuesday night, November 18, McCarter friends and family marked the 50th anniversary of the Music Series with a sold-out concert by the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra, the first time a full orchestra has appeared on the mainstage since 1985.

Special programming director Bill Lockwood was honored for his remarkable achievement; he initiated the Music Series at McCarter in 1964 and has curated it ever since. The array of artists who have presented in the series reads like a “Who’s Who” of classical music in the 20th and 21st centuries, beginning with Emmanuel Ax and ending with Pinchas Zukerman.

We wish to thank Bill Lockwood for sharing his talents with this supportive community of music lovers for these many years. We also thank Novo Nordisk for its sponsorship of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra concert and the E.T. Cone Foundation for its on-going sponsorship of the Music Series.

Timothy J. Shields

Managing Director, McCarter Theater Center
