Ian Gindes
Gifted American Pianist

Sunday, August 28 at 3 pm
$5 adults, students & seniors

Ian Gindes has captivated audiences and attracted the attention of well-known classical musicians worldwide with his dramatic and athletic performances. He has just released a new album, American Visions, which is a celebration of American composers from the 20th century until today. Fanfare magazine described him as “…a technical tour de force,” stating, “[He] performs American music with a sensitivity we usually associate with renditions of the European Romantic masters.” Dr. Gindes also serves as a commissioned officer in the United States Army National Guard. In his highly publicized performances to honor and raise funds for families of soldiers and victims of terrorism and war, the American spirit has clearly extended into his repertoire.

Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them. They agree on a settlement: the first one to extract $50,000 from a young female target, heiress Christine Colgate, wins and the other must leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues that will keep audiences laughing, humming and guessing to the end!

Senoia Area Blood Drive on August 1st

Eligible blood donors are urged to schedule a donation today in conjunction with the August 1 blood drive that will be held from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the Senoia United Methodist Church.  Please note, too, that “walk-ins” are always welcome at these drives.  The blood drive is co-sponsored by the local church and the Senoia Optimist Club.

 

On July 5th, the American Red Cross issued an emergency appeal asking eligible blood and platelet donors to give as soon as possible.  Red Cross blood products are being distributed to hospitals faster than donations are coming in. Blood donations have fallen short of hospital needs for the past few months, resulting in about 39,000 fewer donations than what’s needed, as well as a significant draw-down of its overall blood supply.

 

The upcoming blood drive is for the Senoia area and beyond, and it will be held in the Fellowship Hall of the Senoia United Methodist Church.  The church 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.

 

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.

 

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.

 

While “walk-ins” are welcome, 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.

 

There is a serious need for all blood types. You are encouraged to please schedule an appointment to donate blood or platelets today.

 

The need is constant. The gratification is instant. Give Blood. ™

 

The Senoia Area blood drive is held at the Senoia United Methodist Church on a quarterly basis.  If you would like to learn how you can help in this or another worthwhile project sponsored by the Senoia Optimist Club, please email the club at senoiaoptimistclub@gmail.com or contact Club President Phil Downey at 770-833-9242.  If you would like more information about the Senoia United Methodist Church, please visit its web site at http://senoiaumc.org/ or call the church office Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 9am-3pm at 770-599-3245.
