It’s up to Sister to save the souls of those assembled – the audience! Beginning with an overview of heaven and hell as a Catholic version of Chutes and Ladders and moving onto her proclamation of new sins for the new millennium, Sister is never hesitant to tell us where we’ve gone wrong. (Needless to say, excessive tattooing and piercing are right up there with pornographic websites and dining at Hooters.) And never doubt that she can provide a list of every celebrity currently sharing digs with the devil. No one is excused from Sister’s firm belief that “sometimes we feel guilty because we are guilty.”
Like father, like son! White-cheeked gibbon dad Kien and his son Paddy are both celebrating birthdays in September, and guests are invited to join the festivities for Kien’s 16th birthday and Paddy’s 6th birthday on September 2. The white-cheeked gibbon exhibit will be decorated for the occasion and the gibbons will enjoy birthday treats just for them. There will also be something sweet for guests, who can enjoy a slice of birthday cake from Montilio’s Baking Company (available for the first 200 people, first-come, first-served).
Stop by the exhibit at 11:30 to meet the zookeepers and ask questions, and be sure to sign Kien and Paddy’s giant birthday card!
Gibbons are a species of ape and are endangered animals native to Southeast Asia. Learn more about gibbons at www.zoonewengland.org/whitecheekedgibbon.
