Foghat and Special Guest, Neal Lucas, will be taking concertgoers on a “Slow Ride” THIS Saturday! Tickets are on Sale Now!

In the late 60s, Roger Earl and Lonesome Dave Peverett toured America as members of the seminal British band Savoy Brown who were on the cutting edge of the emerging British blues-rock scene. Foghat was formed in 1971 when Roger and Dave left Savoy, wanting to give a more rock ‘n roll flavor to the blues-boogie music they had been playing. They took America by storm during the 1970s and dominated the airwaves with classic songs such as “Fool for the City,” “Slow Ride,” Night Shift’, “Stone Blue,” “Third Time Lucky,” and their cover of Willie Dixon’s “I Just Want to Make Love to You.”  Foghat has never stopped touring and recording because they just love to play. That is what Foghat is all about … the music!  In the last few years, the band has reached a whole new generation of fans due to their songs appearing on such popular games as Guitar Hero III, numerous movies, and TV ads, etc. As a result, the tour keeps going and the boogie continues.
Bring a chair or a blanket and be sure to stop by the Robin Lake Beach Pavilion & Beach Bar for great food and drinks all night long.

Want to make a possible life-saving difference in someone else’s life? Give the “gift of life” at the August 3rd Senoia Area Blood Drive that will be held at the Senoia United Methodist Church from 1:00 – 6:00 PM.

The Senoia United Methodist Church and the Senoia Optimist Club are co-sponsoring this important blood drive.

The American Red Cross announced this summer that supplies of blood and platelets were expected to be significantly lower than normal due to so many people traveling and a number of blood drives being cancelled as a result. Donors are needed and are welcomed at the upcoming blood drive for the Senoia area that will be held Monday, August 3rd in the Fellowship Hall of the Senoia United Methodist Church. Members of the Senoia Optimist Club will offer blood donors their “famous” grilled cheese sandwiches along with a number of free coupons from local area businesses.

The Senoia United Methodist Church – site of the blood drive – is in the historic district of Senoia and is located at 229 Bridge Street. It is at the intersection of Seavy and Bridge Streets. For those not familiar with the area, you can turn east at the downtown intersection of Main Street and Seavy Street, and go past the Veranda Bed & Breakfast towards the City Park or State Highway 85. The church is on the right – only about 2 blocks east of Main Street.

It is anticipated that those who donated at the Optimist Club’s last blood drive will be personally notified about the upcoming effort and given the opportunity to schedule their appointments to better meet their needs. If necessary, potential donors may either sign up online at
http://www.redcrossblood.org/ or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767). In addition, Senoia Optimist Club member and blood drive coordinator Ellen Ingram may be contacted at 770-842-4533. Please remember, too, that “walk-ins” are always welcome at these drives.

Donors at the Senoia blood drive are again asked to bring one or more non-perishable food items. The Optimist Club members will collect these items and make them available to a local food bank in order to help those around us who are in need.
