Morning Music Selection of the Week at HES!
The music of Star Wars was written by the American composer John Williams. He composed the music scores for the whole series of Star Wars movies. He uses a symphony orchestra and features a mixture of fifty musical themes.
The musical themes represent the various characters, objects and events in the films. Throughout all of the Star Wars franchise, which consists of a total of over 18 hours of music, John Williams has written more than fifty themes in one of the largest, richest collection of themes in the history of film music.
John Williams also has a local connection. From 1980 to 1993 he was the conductor of the Boston Pops Orchestra.

CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE: The Basics
The Orleans office of Independence House Inc. will be hosting an informal informational session for parents, caregivers, teachers, and the public about recognizing the signs of child sexual abuse. Our hope is to shed light on a difficult, but important issue that often goes unmentioned. This will be a short presentation about the realities of child sexual abuse, warning signs, and how to talk to and protect our children. This informational session will take place on Thursday, February 15th from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Please contact Jocelyn Hemeon LCSW at 508 771 6507 ext. 270 or Stella Wolf Cape Wide Victim Advocate at ext. 271 for more information or to register for the session. Light refreshments will be provided. Due to the sensitive nature of the session, childcare will not be available. Our Orleans office is located at 5 Namskaket Rd. Orleans.
