Gifts from the heart

Volunteers with the local Toys for Tots program prepare wrapped gifts for delivery last year. The Pilot/Jef Hatch

In four days, Delma Olsen has wrapped more than 200 toys. She wraps four to seven hours a day, five or six days a week. This is her sixth year. 

“I get where I can wrap in my sleep,” Olsen said. “I just feel so good to be able to get them done and getting them done in time. I always feel like I’ve accomplished something.”

“Mankind should be our business Ebenezer, but how seldom do we attend to it?”

With this one line in Charles Dickens’ classic “A Christmas Carol,” the ghost of Jacob Marley begins the transformation of Ebenezer Scrooge from a miserable, old, penny-pinching skinflint, to the man he should be.

Opening night for the Brookings Harbor Community Theater musical production of “The Secret Garden” had the audience clapping at the end of every scene as well as in time with the final number.

Although there was no standing ovation, the audience seemed to enjoy the performance of this heartwarming story of how a change of scenery can bring about miracles in the lives of people without hope.

With a cast of 30 actors ranging in age from 5 to 60, the literary classic is portrayed in a family-friendly musical adaptation by Tim Kelly, which is a different version than others as it features additional characters to fill out a chorus. Although it did seem as though some characters, with non-speaking roles, were unnecessary.
