the table should be centrally located and the wedding couple
should sit in the middle. A male-female pattern follows on
either side of the couple, consisting of the ushers, brides-
maids, best man, and maid of honor. If much of the wedding
party is already married, couples may opt to have the wed-
ding party sit with their spouses instead of at the dais.
· Organize family tables. Tables for parents, grandparents
and immediate family members of the bride and groom also
are high priority. Both families can be combined at one ta-
ble, or they can be separated into two tables. These tables
should be the closest to the bride and groom.
· Consider mobility issues. Next seat guests who have
specific needs at tables. Elderly guests may want to be away
from the band, deejay or speakers. Guests in wheelchairs
may need an accessible seat near the exit.
· Get some help. Enlist the help of parents to seat their
friends and extended family members. Parents may know
best who gets along and who should be separated.
· Seat dancers near the dance floor. To encourage danc-
ing, place guests who tend to be lively close to the dance
floor so others can see them getting up to dance and join in.
Couples can use apps, lists or self-made charts to plot
their reception seating arrangements. Create place cards or
a central chart so guests can find their seats promptly and

The A Side and B Side
of Arthur Dann

Local historian Sid Comings presents an engaging program
about Arthur Dann (1913-1979), a professor of classical piano
for over 40 years at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, who
also performed in a popular jazz trio known as “King Arthur
and His Men.” Dann was one of the most active and versatile
performers in the Oberlin community, playing venues both lo-
cally and in New York City. The multifaceted musician was
on the one hand a recognized expert on the music of Frederic
Chopin, while on the other, his gift for improvisation made him
a highly respected performer in the world of jazz (an area rel-
atively untouched by classical musicians of his era). This live-
ly program provides an opportunity for audience members to
learn more about Dann and listen to several brief recordings
that reflect both sides of the maestro! The event takes place on
Tuesday, January 23, at 7:15 p.m. at Kendal at Oberlin’s Heiser
Auditorium (600 Kendal Drive) and is free and open to the
Sid Comings is a lifelong Oberlinian with family roots in
the community that run deep. He graduated from Oberlin Col-
lege in 1969 and managed the music department in the Co-Op
Bookstore for 10 years; he also served as an adjunct professor
of writing at Lorain County Community College for over 25
years. Comings has written more than 100 articles on various
topics that have appeared in 18 different publications. In 2017,
he was honored by the Oberlin Heritage Center with the Com-
munity Historian Award. His particular areas of interest in local
history include Oberlin’s musical heritage, its historic down-
town and business history, and its contributions to the fields of
education, literature and sports.

AARP Tax Aide Program

February 1, 2018 is just around the corner and that is the
day the AARP Tax Aide Program will start to file your taxes for
the year 2017. As you know it is a free tax service offered to
seniors, low to moderate income families and singles. We have
11 convenient sites in Lorain County for you to be able to make
an appointment to come in. Below is the list for all the sites,
addresses and phone numbers.
When you come in you must bring with you your driver’s
license as it is mandatory for the state of Ohio to file the Ohio
return. If you are married we will need both of your driver’s
licences. We need to see your social security card and all of the
documents that will be needed to file a complete return. Please
wait to come in until you have all of your tax papers. Bring in
your 2016 return and anything you have received in reference
to your health insurance. If you think you maybe able to item-
ize please just bring in the totals for your doctors, prescriptions,
mortgage interest and taxes and total of charitable donations.
We look forward to serving and seeing you again this year.
If you are new to this free service we are sure you will come
away pleased and with the knowledge that your taxes have been
completed, electronically filed and it only cost you a smile.
