Students from LA, Groton School, GDRHS Join Together for Meal Preparation Event, January 13
Groton, Mass. — It’s almost time! Lawrence Academy’s annual meal packing event for Rise Against Hunger happens this weekend, on Sunday, January 13, 2019.
And, this year, Groton, Mass. is represented by all three high schools — LA, Groton School, and Groton Dunstable Regional High School — whose students will literally work to end hunger.
Rise Against Hunger 2018
Rise Against Hunger (formerly Stop Hunger Now), an international hunger relief organization that distributes food and life-changing aid to the world’s most vulnerable, mobilizes the necessary resources in an effort to end hunger by 2030.
Over the past several years, Lawrence Academy has been a partner of Rise Against Hunger, mobilizing its own best resource — it’s students — in just one facet of the school’s community service program.
We’ll be sure to post pictures and video from this year’s event, but, for now, enjoy some scenes from previous years.

Lawrence Academy alumnus Charlie Smigelski ’67 has a new book available.
A nutritionist, Smigelski takes a functional medicine approach that stresses repair of the cell systems behind ailments.
The book synopsis reads:
After age 50 there are physiologic changes that increase nutrient needs. Cellular repair is slower, so wear and tear on muscles lingers; antioxidants are needed in larger quantity. The immune system also responds a bit more slowly to viruses and germs, generating more free radicals and inflammation. Knowing how to nourish the glutathione antioxidant enzyme improves the pace of body repair. Even liver and kidney functions can be improved.Reversing subtle or marginal nutrient deficiencies can improve general vitality and sense of wellbeing. Added nutrition means you recover from skiing, swimming, cycling, and hockey adventures better. Taking extra vitamin and other supplements can help you manage high blood pressure and high cholesterol without medications. Intelligent use of supplements can help manage conditions like acid reflux, neuropathy, arthritis and diabetes when drugs are only partially effective, or have unwanted side effects. I want you to examine your concept of the usual physical declines with aging. Use this book to develop new ideas and abilities for repairing yourself in your AARP membership decades.
Join us in congratulating Charlie on his new publication!
If you are interested in reading the book, it is available on Amazon.
The re-start of the winter term can feel like being dropped onto a treadmill rolling at full pace. So, we wanted to remind everyone of the resources available to the community to help keep the calendar straight.
First, be sure to peruse the Spartan Newsletter (weekly academic newsletter) to reaquaint your brain to the full schedule.
Everything is in there, including the Dining Hall menu and schedule.
There’s also plenty to be gleened from The Page (LA’s community information page), including Weekend Activities and Community Service Opportunities.
Best wishes for a smooth term, and a belated “Happy New Year!” to all…
