Dear SAG-AFTRA Washington – Mid Atlantic Member:
I WOULD LOVE TO READ TO CHILDREN!
BookPALS (Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools) is a national literacy program administered
by the nonprofit Screen Actors Guild Foundation.
It’s a unique program of volunteer performers who read aloud to children, showing them the joy of reading.
BookPALS read in school classrooms, hospitals, libraries, and shelters.
It is with deep sadness and regret we write to inform you of the passing of our dear friend and local member, Kirk Penberthy.
Kirk was former president of the Washington-Baltimore Branch of SAG and served on the SAG National Board as well as the AFTRA Executive Board. He also served on various committees over the years, representing all actors in our area.
The process of gathering proposals to enhance the Television and Theatrical Motion Picture Contracts is under way in the Washington-Mid Atlantic Local and all over the country. Your local board approved TV/Theatrical Wages and Working Conditions Committee is meeting on Tuesday, Feb. 4 to develop proposals benefitting our membership and welcomes your input either in person* or via email.
On behalf of all of us at SAG-AFTRA, I just wanted to take a moment to thank Taylor-Royall, and especially its founder Martha Royall, for the significant role she and the company have played in our market place for more than 30 years.Read More
