 About Callaway Gardens

For 60 years, Callaway Gardens has provided “a place of relaxation, inspiration and a better understanding of the living world” for millions of visitors.  Owned and operated by the non-profit Ida Cason Callaway Foundation, Callaway Gardens includes a garden, resort, preserve and residential community on 6,000 acres in Pine Mountain, Georgia.  Highlights include a zip line/obstacle course, butterfly conservatory, horticultural center, discovery center, chapel, inland beach, nature trails and special events throughout the year.

Continuing the Charles Wadsworth concert tradition is a big responsibility, according to the organizers of “Wadsworth and Friends Concert – The Legacy Continues.”
 
The Newnan Cultural Arts Commission is excited and honored to be able to continue this legacy,” said Kim Wright, chair of this year’s event. 
 
“It also leaves us with the Wadsworth Master Class Program, where the visiting artists share their talents and knowledge with some of Newnan’s most talented young students. They get the chance to study with these world-class musicians, which is just a wonderful gift to our community.”
 
Musicians in town for the event will lead the Wadsworth Master Class Program with local students at the Centre for Performing and Visual Arts. The classes will be held on the Friday morning before the concert, slated for April 26.
“The classes will be conducted by Andrew Armstrong and myself,” said Courtenay Budd, soprano. “These classes are always a lot of fun. It’s great to hear all the talent we have right here in Coweta County.”
The Wadsworth Master Class Program began in 2009 and has been sponsored regularly by Cargill and the Newnan Rotary Club.
 
“The arts and education have always been important to our company,” said Bradley Down of Cargill. “The Master Class Program is the perfect combination of those two things. It is a privilege for Cargill to be involved.”
“The Newnan Rotary Club is pleased to once again sponsor the Wadsworth Master Class Program for Coweta County students in partnership with our friends at Cargill and the Coweta County School System” said Newnan Rotary President Walter Thompson. “Master Classes widen students’ exposure to the arts and will inspire and challenge them to further pursue a love of music as shown by the legacy of Charles Wadsworth.”
 
Budd said she doesn’t yet know if pianist Charles Wadsworth will be in attendance at this year’s classes.
“I don’t know. But what I do know is that it’s very important to us that this year, for Charles, it’s all about pleasure and no pressure. He may just want to rest after all these years! I’m not sure.”
He will likely attend the concert, but is not expected to perform.
“We have invited Charles to this year’s concert as our guest,” said Wright. “If he decides to attend, I wouldn’t think it out of the question that he could decide to give the audience an impromptu performance.  It would be completely up to him of course, but wouldn’t that be great!”
 
The Wadsworth Legacy leaves Newnan “with this magical evening each year that I have to say, the first time I experienced it, I couldn’t believe I was still in Newnan,” said Wright. “I felt like I was watching a concert in New York, the talent is so superb.”
 
“Charles is just an extraordinary musician and artist, but he’s packaged in this humble, funny, folksy fellow-next-door from Newnan, Georgia,” said Budd. “What you see is what you get. He is kind and funny and a very approachable person. And Charles has always been so easy to work with.”
 
Scheduled to join Budd in concert this year at the Wadsworth Auditorium are some familiar faces to Newnan audiences: violinist Chee-Yun, cellist Edward Arron, clarinetist Todd Palmer and pianists Jeewon Park and Andrew Armstrong.
“The Cultural Arts commission has been working diligently to make this year’s concert an event not to be missed,” said Kim Wright, chair of the event. “Our team of commission members work so well together and we really enjoy being able to bring this special concert to Newnan.”
 
The concert has sold out for the past four years so make sure to get your tickets early, event organizers said. General admission tickets for Friends of Wadsworth – The Legacy Continues are $20 and available at Let Them Eat Toffee on the downtown Court Square, The downtown Visitor’s Center in the historic Coweta County Courthouse, Morgan’s Jewelers in Ashley Park, and Bank of North Georgia at Thomas Crossroads.

West Georgia Health Emergency Department welcomes 2014 Insiders class

West Georgia Health Emergency Department welcomes 2014 Insiders class

West Georgia Health Insiders recently learned the ins and outs of emergency services available in LaGrange, including a first-hand tour of the WGH Emergency Department and a closer look at lifesaving helicopter services used for emergency transport.

The Insiders first visited the Emergency Department, where they toured the 33,000 square-foot facility and learned the staff handled more than 65,000 patient visits last year. Open 24 hours a day — seven days a week — the ED trauma team of physicians and nurses, along with a host of clinical support staff is always available to provide care for accident victims and patients with life-threatening illnesses.

In addition, the Insiders had the opportunity to peek inside a medical helicopter provided by Air Evac Lifeteam 77, which is based at the LaGrange Callaway Airport and works in coordination with the WGH Emergency Department team. Staffed 24/7 by specially trained pilots and nurses, Air Evac Lifeteam 77 in LaGrange was onsite at West Georgia Health’s helipad for inspection.

Participants learned about a crucial decision-making process that is initiated each time the flight team responds to an emergency. While prompt care during the “Golden Hour” after a traumatic injury is vital, the closest hospital may not always be the best choice, depending on a patient’s condition. Sometimes the severity or complexity of an injury dictates treatment by a specialty physician who is not available locally.

The copter’s flight nurse makes an initial evaluation and, if necessary, works with a physician to determine the closest facility offering the resources needed by the patient. For example, a patient who has suffered a head wound with possible internal bleeding may be flown to a hospital where a neurosurgeon can provide immediate care.

Established in 2010, Air Evac Lifeteam 77 serves several communities in west Georgia and east Alabama and is funded and operated through membership support.

Members of the WGH Insiders group participate in seven monthly sessions in which they tour key departments, learn about vital services, and view advanced technologies available at West Georgia Health.

The 5th annual ‘Taste of Senoia’ will be held on April 27 at the Veranda Historic Bed and Breakfast Inn located at 252 Seavy Street in downtown Senoia.  The Optimist Club of Senoia is the host for this popular event. 

 

There will be 2 separate seatings for this year’s ‘Taste of Senoia’: 3:30 to 5:00 PM and 5:30 to 7:00 PM.  Each $10 ticket will reflect the selected time accordingly.  Since this is a “drop-in” event, guests do not have to arrive at the beginning of their selected session.

 

If the previous ‘Taste of Senoia’ events are any indication, there will be a large amount of delicious food available to “taste” from a large number of Senoia’s restaurants along with delicious dishes from many of the local area citizens.  Ticket prices remain at only $10 each, and the price of admission includes an entry into the grand raffle with the lucky winner receiving an overnight’s stay at the Veranda.  Participants will also have the opportunity to purchase tickets towards many other exciting raffle prizes.  In addition, there will be a separate raffle prize awarded to one of the food providers. 

 

Senoia Optimist Club President Pat Veneziani explained that “in addition to the food and the raffle prizes, our guests will be able to view a number of artifacts from Senoia’s history.  Maureen Schuyler, Director of the Senoia Area Historical Society’s museum located at 6 Couch Street, will display several pieces from the local museum.  Guests will also be able to see much of the downstairs as well as the lovely grounds at the Veranda Historic Inn. 

 

This wonderful structure was built by C.F. Hollberg Sr. in 1906 as the Hollberg Hotel.  Current owners Rick and Laura Reynolds are looking forward to sharing a portion of their historic Bed and Breakfast for this popular event. 

 

Optimist member and food coordinator Marnie Copeland said “I’m excited about this year’s ‘Taste of Senoia’.  It’s really going to be great!  Our guests often tell us how amazed they are at the amount of delicious food available.  We anticipate a lot of wonderful food again this year.”

 

Those who are interested are encouraged to buy their tickets early as sales will be limited.  Tickets for each of the two time slots can be purchased through April 19 from Senoia Optimist Club members or through various Senoia businesses that include:

·        Chloe’s (770-599-8664)

·        Senoia Coffee and Café (770-599-8000)
