‘Hocus Pocus’: Delta Omega, Buddies invite students to s’mores, movie on Quad tonight

Bring your own blanket and join Lipscomb’s Delta Omega for a ‘Hocus Pocus’ movie night that reinforces the club’s commitment to Best Buddies. Delta Omega philanthropy chair Erin Whiting said plans for the movie night began in the summer, and the club pondered which movie to show for this autumn celebration. “We talked about how the Buddies really like ‘Hocus Pocus’ and ‘Nightmare before Christmas,’ and (we) decided to go with ‘Hocus Pocus,'” she said. The event will take place in the Quad, with snacks and s’mores beginning at 6:30 p.m. this evening and the movie starting at 7 p.m. The cost is a “pay-what-you-can” donation to benefit Best Buddies. Best Buddies is a nonprofit global volunteer movement whose goal is to establish one-on-one friendships,  employment, leadership development and inclusive living for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, according to the organization. Lipscomb has an on-campus Best Buddies chapter that includes associate members and one-on-one Buddies. Delta Omega has been working with Best Buddies since 2013, and the club’s involvement is expanding. “One of the changes I have made as philanthropy chair for Delta Omega is getting more involved with them as members, going to their parties and hanging out with them more,” said Whiting, of the relationship between the Greek Club and Best Buddies. “We used to do a fundraiser with Best Buddies, ‘Mr. Lipscomb,’ but weren’t very involved with them,” Whiting said. “That [Best Buddies] was one of the reasons I wanted to join Delta Omega, so I changed that fundraiser to ‘Hocus Pocus,’ so we can hang out with them more.” To find out more about...

Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse offers ‘a bit of nostalgia and fun’

A bit of nostalgia for ‘older kids,’ the children’s play Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse plays through Saturday, Sept. 28, at Shamblin. Lipscomb’s School of Fine and Performing Arts is presenting the show, based on the children’s books by Kevin Henkes. The tale features a mouse named Lilly who loves everything about school. Pals Chester and Wilson say they are two peas in a pod, but Lilly soon comes to town and eventually becomes best friends with both of them. “It’s really good for ages 5-10,” said Emma Harvey, who plays Chester, when talking about the play. “Adults love it too, though,” she said. “There are some really specific parts of the show that are geared towards adults, and that children just won’t get. For college students, it’s really nostalgic because we grew up reading the books.” Tickets for can be purchased here for the remaining shows at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Sept. 27, and at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 28, in Shamblin Theatre. Harvey encourages her college schoolmates to catch it before it’s gone. “You should definitely come see this show for a little bit of nostalgia and fun.” Gallery by Madison Sharpe.

Lipscomb prays over the Bahamas and offers opportunities to donate

Lipscomb prays over the Bahamas and offers opportunities to donate

Yesterday at the gathering, 4 students from the Bahamas spoke about how Hurricane Dorian damaged their country and then gave ways for other students to be of help to the Bahamas.  The Bahamas are off the coast of Florida and the capital, Nassau island is where these 4 students are from.  This all started when The National Hurricane Center issued a state of a tropical depression on August 24th, but 6 days later the storm intensified and developed into a category 5 hurricane. The hurricane hit both the Abaco and Grand Bahama islands. The record-breaking hurricane passed Nassau but has left many of the Bahamian people who evacuated homeless and displaced on the island. The death count from the hurricane has unofficially continued to rise past the 100 marks and will only continue to rise as there are still many people missing and unidentified.  The estimated damage to the Bahamas is in the billions. Lipscomb is offering opportunities to donate to the Bahamas through its website as well as through phone calls.  Celea Brown prayed for the Bahamas and over the Bahamian people saying, “Dear God, We know that the Bahamas are a place where you live, we know that your people worship you and you are the center of our entire life. God, I pray for the spirit of restoration, the spirit of peace, the spirit of miracles on my Bahama land and my people. God, I just thank you for this entire student body. I pray Father God that as you listen to our story, that you become a way that they can give to us. And we pray father...
