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.”

China-Australia rift deepens as Beijing tests overseas sway

Dec 11, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Australia’s ban on Chinese telecoms giant Huawei’s involvement in its future 5G networks and its crackdown on foreign covert interference are testing Beijing’s efforts to project its power overseas. In its latest maneuver, China sent three scholars to spell out in interviews with Australian media and other appearances steps to mend the deepening rift with Beijing _ a move that appears to have fallen flat. In a recent press conference at the Chinese Embassy in Canberra, Chen Hong, the head of Australian studies at East China Normal University, accused Australia of acting as a “pawn” for the...

Dec 11, 2019

CANBERRA, Australia — Fiji's prime minister used a state visit on Monday to urge Australia to take more ambitious actions to slash greenhouse gas emissions, a month after differences on climate change policy created anger and frustration at a forum of Pacific island leaders. Voreqe Bainimarama, who was Fijian Military Forces commander when he seized power in a 2006 coup, said in a speech at the Australian Defense College that he hoped Fiji and Australia could "find more common ground" on climate change. "The steady deterioration in the state of the only planet we have means that we all need...

New Zealand gun buyback exposes emotions, possibly hustlers

Dec 11, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Some New Zealand gun owners are upset they're being compelled to hand over their assault weapons for money. Others believe a government-imposed ban on certain semi-automatics following a March shooting massacre is the best way to combat gun violence. And The Associated Press has found that at least one man may have tried to swindle hundreds of thousands of dollars from the system set up to compensate gun owners. New Zealand is six weeks into an ambitious program to buy tens of thousands of guns from owners across the country. After a lone gunman killed 51...

New Zealand parliament speaker soothes baby as debate rages

Dec 11, 2019

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — The man who presides over New Zealand's parliament has been called a baby whisperer. He was in action again this week, gently rocking, bottle feeding and burping a colleague's infant as a lawmaker ranted about gas prices. Speaker Trevor Mallard held baby Tutanekai for about 15 minutes during a fiery general debate Wednesday after spotting lawmaker Tamati Coffey with his 6-week-old son. Mallard said Friday he's been trying to make parliament a more baby-friendly place by adding baby chairs, family rooms and soon, a slide. He's also increased the flexibility around family leave for lawmakers. New...

Australian court upholds sex abuse verdict of Cardinal Pell

Dec 11, 2019

MELBOURNE, Australia — An Australian appeals court Wednesday upheld convictions against Cardinal George Pell, the most senior Catholic to be found guilty of sexually abusing children, in a decision cheered by scores of abuse survivors and victims' advocates demonstrating outside the court. A unanimous jury in December found Pope Francis' former finance minister guilty of molesting two 13-year-old choirboys in Melbourne's St. Patrick's Cathedral more than two decades ago. The Victoria state Court of Appeal rejected his appeal in a 2-1 ruling, with the court's chief justice saying the majority found Pell's accuser to be a compelling "witness of truth."...
