Goldston Depot Fundraiser & Dinner Theater at New Hope Valley Railway

New Hope Valley Railway (NHVR) will host a unique fundraiser for the renovation of the historic Goldston Depot on Sunday, Nov. 12, at its rail yard in Bonsal. Visitors can ride the train and meet local author Larry Neal, Jr., who recently published a book on North Carolina train depots or they can purchase tickets for NHVR’s first dinner theater kicking off the holiday season.

Passengers with tickets for train rides departing at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. will be able to step inside the Goldston depot that was moved to NHVR’s rail yard in August 2017.

The depot was gifted to the North Carolina Railway Museum, home to NHVR, by Todd Gaines, a Goldston businessman whose father saved the 23’ x 58’ building from demolition in the mid-70s. Artifacts will be on display and author Larry Neal, Jr., will meet with visitors and sign copies of his new book Rail Depots of Eastern North Carolina.

Complimentary pieces of cake to celebrate the Goldston Depot’s move to NHVR will be shared with visitors while supplies last. Food and ice cream will also be available for purchase. Train tickets cost $10/adults, $9/seniors (ages 60+) and $7/children (ages 2-12, under 2 is free when seated in the lap of an adult).

A second ticketed event taking place in the rail yard beginning at 4 p.m. is A Christmas Carol Dinner Show performed by The Phoenix Theatre Company. The costumed characters from the show will ride the train with ticketed passengers. Immediately following the train ride, the show will begin and dinner will be served. Dinner consists of four entrée options, sides and dessert. Wine ticket vouchers can be purchased before the ride for $5/glass to enjoy during dinner.

The Phoenix Theatre Company aims to bring theatrical events to any space without an official stage space to perform. The show is interactive and encourages participation.

Dinner Show tickets, which include the 4 p.m. train ride and dinner, cost $49 (plus sales tax and a convenience fee), will be limited and must be purchased in advance online at www.TriangleTrain.com by 11:59 p.m. EST on Friday, November 10.

For the citizens of Grover’s Corners, life is sweet. The doctor makes house calls, the teenage boy delivers the paper and the Boy-Next-Door meets the Girl-Next-Door. Set in an All-American small town at the turn of the century, this 80th anniversary production of Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a heartwarming and deeply moving reminder to appreciate life while one has it and to relish every moment – no matter how mundane it seems – for it is those small moments that are truly miraculous. A partnership production with UNC School of the Arts.

Tire Rack Street Survival® Teen Driving School

Tire Rack Street Survival® is a 501c3 organization and is the largest active non-profit national driver education program that teaches teens the skills they need to stay alive behind the wheel. Unlike traditional driver’s education programs based on classroom theory and simple maneuvers, the Tire Rack Street Survival® program improves driver competence through hands-on experiences in real-world driving situations.

Students will receive a valuable classroom session and then will learn, hands-on, how to manage everyday driving hazards, obstacles and challenges in a controlled environment on an advanced driving course to ultimately ‘arrive alive.’ 

Students learn emergency braking and skid control, how to control proper braking, and how to avoid accidents entirely. In select schools, in addition to spending time in the driver’s seat of parked 18-wheeler to fully comprehend its massive blind spots, teenagers witness the violent detonation of an air bag, which reinforces proper hand placement on the steering wheel.

Students are taught in their own cars, not specially prepared program vehicles, so the skills they learn can be directly translated to their daily driving experiences. Tire Rack Street Survival® challenges teenagers to understand how to control a vehicle, rather than just operate one.

Tire Rack Street Survival® is open to licensed and permitted drivers ages 15 – 21. Forms, schedules and more information can be found online at www.streetsurvival.org. The cost is $75 per student and some insurance companies offer premium discounts to graduates.

The program is in its 15th year having trained over 20,000 new drivers. In 2016, over 100 schools were completed nationally.

For the 8th year, Michelin North America is supporting the Street Survival program by providing funding for pavement rental for each school throughout the United States. That is no small task, given that this year the Tire Rack Street Survival schools plan to offer its training to teens all across the U.S.

Strides for Speech

Sanctioned by USA Track & Field

Imagine if the last thing you said tonight was the last thing you said..... period.  Aphasia is a devastating consequence to stroke, brain injury, and other progressive diseases that rob individuals of their ability to express their thoughts and ideas.  Even with intact cognition, memory, and intellect, individuals suffering from aphasia often feel isolated not being able to return to the vocational or recreational pursuits they had prior to their diagnosis. 

The Triangle Aphasia Project, Unlimited is a nonprofit organization that provides programming to individuals with aphasia, their families, and the community.  With a Life Participation approach, we strive to reduce communication barriers and improve social engagement and speech/language potential.  TAP provides group programs, trainings, education and opportunities throughout the Triangle and beyond.

TAP's goal for Strides for Speech is not just to help support its community programming but also provide a fun, safe activity for those with aphasia and their families. Whether you walk, run, stroll, or roll this 5K and 1Ž2 mile is a perfect opportunities for everyone to come together to support TAP and learn more about how they can help those we serve. 

We hope you'll join us on October 14th and please invite your friends and family to walk or run with you!

Golfing legends Sir Nick Faldo (@NickFaldo006) and Colin Montgomerie (@montgomeriefdn) have committed to play in the 2017 SAS Championship, October 13 – 15 at Prestonwood Country Club in Cary.

“Nick and Colin, in addition to being Hall of Fame golfers, are fan favorites that will be sure to entertain everyone attending the SAS Championship in October,” Tournament Director Jeff Kleiber said. “They will add to an already elite field, including Bernhard Langer, John Daly and other legends of golf.”

Faldo, a six-time Major Champion, was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame in 1998. He has collected 39 total victories in his playing career and spent 97 weeks ranked number one in the Official Golf World Rankings. Faldo’s career also includes 12 appearances as part of the Ryder Cup, including his captaincy of the European team in 2008.

Since 2006, Faldo has been the lead golf analyst for CBS. He has competed in three events on the PGA Tour Champions this season, including the U.S. Senior Open Championship and The Senior Open Championship. In October, Faldo will make his first appearance at the SAS Championship since 2014.

“The old Nick Faldo played some real consistent golf. That’s my goal,” Faldo said. “I would love to play like that again.”

Montgomerie has continued the consistency that was a trademark of his career to the PGA Tour Champions. He has finished in the top-3 of the Charles Schwab Money List the last three seasons. The commitment marks Montgomerie’s fifth appearance in the SAS Championship, following a T7 finish in 2016. He has never finished outside of the top 20 in Cary.

In 2013, Montgomerie was inducted into the World Golf Hall of Fame. He won the European Tour’s Order of Merit a total of eight times, including a streak of seven consecutive titles from 1993 – 1999. Montgomerie represented Europe in a total of eight Ryder Cups, including as Captain in 2010.

Faldo (25 points), Langer (24 points), and Montgomerie (23.5 points) are first, second, and third in total points earned for team Europe in the history of the Ryder Cup.

Tickets to see Nick Faldo and Colin Montgomerie at the SAS Championship, including access to the all-inclusive Mellow Mushroom Chill Club on the 17th Green, are available at www.SASChampionship.com.
