Donate scrap Jan. 13 at Habitat stores

All scrap items will be accepted, including broken appliances, wire, metal tubing, iron and car parts. The Shelton store will accept scrap only Jan. 13 due to a lack of storage space.

Actors wanted for Harstine Island play

The Harstine Island Theatre Club hosts auditions for the play "Crossing Delancey" by Susan Sandler at 6 p.m. Sunday at the Harstine Island Community Hall, 3371 E. Harstine Island Road N.

The show will be staged the first two weekends in April.

"Crossing Delaney" is the story of Isabel, a modern young woman who lives alone and works in a book shop. When she is not pining after a handsome author, she is visiting her grandmother, Bubbie, in Manhattan's East Side.

This irascible granny and her friend the matchmaker have found Isabel a "good catch," a gentle, unpretentious pickle vendor named Sam.

You do not have to be the age of the character, just be able to play it, the group states.

The role of Bubbie is a feisty, sharp-witted woman who immigrated to the United States as a young girl and is 70 years or older. Izzie is a bookish dreamer in her late 20s to early 30s.

Hannah the matchmaker is a wheeler dealer who loves to eat and is in her 50s.

Tyler is a well-known author, charming and self-involved and in his late 30s.

Sam is a pickle man and a poet, gentle and intuitive, and in his early 30s.
