Titanic Helps Out A Theatre Group
1. The Maysville Players in Maysville, Kentucky will be auctioning off a replica of a White Star Line deck chair. Local furniture maker Joe Brannen crafted the chair from looking at a design in Popular Mechanics. It has taken just about month to get it done and now in its final stages. It will be used in a Titanic-themed mystery called Scotland Road. And then in March raffled off to benefit the Maysville Players.

3. Boy Remembered In Local Library With Titanic Bookshelf
Ben Marks loved Titanic says his brother Eric. And he loved the Titanic movie and its famous line “I’m king of the world!” But sadly he was killed in a car accident in July 2012. He was 8-years-old. Robin Sargent, his second grade teacher, spearheaded the project.
Sargent, with a vivid pink face, occasionally chokes back tears as she speaks, with both hands gripped together clinging to the upper part of her chest as if to hold up her head if it were to drop, recalled Ben as a bright young man devouring every scrap of knowledge in his path.
The Titanic themed bookcase memorial was set up in January in the library of Shepherd Elementary School in Shepherd, Michigan. It has a replica life preserver hanging in the front with a replica suitcase at the bottom. There is a plate that reads “Ben’s Bookcase” at the top. The project was aided by donations from teachers, school staff and others. A fitting tribute indeed to a small boy who loved Titanic.
