Lighthouse Treatment Center Hosts a Medieval Thanksgiving for its Alumni

December 03, 2019 - /PressAdvantage/ - Anaheim, California – As part of its alumni program, the Lighthouse Treatment Center, a drug and alcohol recovery facility in Anaheim, California, hosted an early Thanksgiving dinner at the Medieval Times Dinner & Tournament on November 23, 2019.

The 4-course dinner is accompanied by a medieval show at the Buena Park Castle complete with a two-hour jousting tournament, six competing knights, real weapons, stunning horses, and a live fight at the royal falcon.

Jocel Bibera, alumni relations coordinator of the Lighthouse shared that it was a great alternative to a typical Thanksgiving feast. Not only was the food delicious, but it also showed their alumni that there are sober activities that can be fun and entertaining.

“Our alumni enjoyed the Medieval Times dinner and show for our early Thanksgiving celebration. It provided an entertaining experience for everyone who attended,” Bibera said.

The Medieval Times dinner is only one of the ongoing activities hosted by the Lighthouse for its alumni members. Earlier in the month, some Lighthouse alumni also went to a pirate-themed dinner theater.

John F., one of the Lighthouse alumni said that he always looks forward to alumni events as a way to build new friendships. “Alumni events are the highlight of my week and this event did not disappoint. We had community bonding from being on the same knight’s team and cheering together! It was awesome sober fun.”

Seoul unsure if North Korea will air World Cup qualifier

Dec 11, 2019

SEOUL, South Korea — South Korea said Thursday it's unclear if North Korea will allow a live broadcast when it hosts the South's national soccer team for a World Cup qualifier in Pyongyang next Tuesday. Seoul's Unification Ministry, which deals with inter-Korean affairs, said the North has been ignoring South Korean calls for discussions on broadcasting the game live and allowing South Korean spectators to attend. "There has been no particular progress on the issues of (sending South Korean) cheering squads or providing broadcast coverage, so they won't be easy," since there's only a few days left until the game,...

Pell's appeal pitted word of former choirboy against priest

Dec 11, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Cardinal George Pell's appeal against his convictions for child molestation was largely a question of who the jury should have believed, his accuser or a senior priest whose church role was likened to Pell's bodyguard. Pell's accuser was a 13-year-old choirboy when he alleged that he was abused by then-Melbourne Archbishop Pell at the city's St. Patrick's Cathedral in December 1996 and February 1997. Monsignor Charles Portelli was a master of ceremonies at the 11 a.m. Sunday Masses where the choir sang. A chorister in the 1990s, David Dearing, told police that Portelli, Pell's right-hand man, was...

Dec 11, 2019

HONG KONG — At least eight pop stars from mainland China and one each from Taiwan and Hong Kong are publicly stating their support for Beijing's one-China policy, eliciting a mixture of disappointment and understanding from fans. Many of the statements came after protesters opposed to Beijing's growing influence over semi-autonomous Hong Kong removed a Chinese flag and tossed it into Victoria Harbour earlier this month. Lay Zhang, Jackson Wang, Lai Kuan-lin and Victoria Song were among the K-pop singers who recently uploaded a Chinese flag and declared themselves as "one of 1.4 billion guardians of the Chinese flag" on...

HONG KONG — The Latest on Hong Kong protests (all times local): 7 p.m. At least three concerts by overseas performers have been canceled in Hong Kong as protesters forced the city's airport to suspend operations for a second day.

China bans movies, actors from prominent Taiwan film awards

Dec 11, 2019

BEIJING — China said Wednesday it was banning Chinese movies and actors from participating in Taiwan's Golden Horse Awards, one of the Asian film industry's most prestigious honors, as Beijing ramps up economic and political pressure on the island it claims as its own territory. The one-sentence announcement on the microblog of China Film News, a newspaper affiliated with government film regulator, gave no reason for the suspension, but it comes amid rising tensions over Taiwan's refusal to recognize being part of Chinese territory to eventually be brought under Beijing's rule. Even without the ban, Chinese artists might have found...
