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.”

Dec 10, 2019

HONG KONG — Chinese President Xi Jinping's surprise meeting with Hong Kong leader Carrie Lam was a "vote of confidence" in her government's ability to tackle five months of anti-government protests that have rocked the semi-autonomous Chinese territory, a senior official said Tuesday. Xi met Lam on the sidelines of a trade event in Shanghai on Monday night amid signals from China's central government that it may tighten its grip on Hong Kong to quell the unrest that has at times challenged Chinese rule.

Dec 10, 2019

HONG KONG — Hong Kong authorities on Wednesday withdrew an unpopular extradition bill that sparked months of chaotic protests that have since morphed into a campaign for greater democratic change. Secretary for Security John Lee told the semi-autonomous Chinese city's legislature that the government had suspended the bill because it had resulted in "conflicts in society." In order to clearly spell out the government's position, "I formally announce the withdrawal of the bill," Lee told lawmakers. Pro-democracy lawmakers immediately tried to question him but he refused to respond. There are no signs that the withdrawal of the bill would dampen...
