Town Talk 9-25-10

Acting workshop this Saturday

This weekend brings us a remarkable event that has been keenly anticipated. The Warrensburg Historical Society is sponsoring their annual acting workshop - featuring a professional mentor - to be held from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25, at the Warrensburg Senior Center.

The focus of the workshop, for adults and teenagers, will be on costumed interpretations of historic figures.

The session will be conducted by professional acting coach Filomena Riviello. The cost is $10 which includes lunch. For details, contact Rita at 623-2213 or at ritagary@msn.com.

Additional voices sought

The annual Christmas Cantata vocal group will begin rehearsals starting at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 6, at the United Methodist Church in Chestertown. Tenors and basses are needed, so all those who are interested in singing are encouraged to join in. No auditions are necessary.

The cantata this year is conducted by Lenore Simpson and Richard K. Flachbarth. The performance will be at 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, in Bolton Landing and at 3 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 5, in the United Methodist Church in Chestertown. If you have never attended one of these concerts, I encourage you do so. It is amazing the talent these amateur singers have. Also, hearing the cantata concert will undoubtedly put you in the holiday spirit.

World Communion celebration set

On Sunday, Oct. 3, at 11 a.m., First United Methodist Church in Warrensburg will observe World Communion Sunday.

Church members invite all in the area to attend this special event officiated by Rev. Stephen Andres, newly appointed pastor of the church.

Flag burning ceremony planned

Warrensburg's American Legion Post 446 will be holding a flag cremation ceremony Saturday, Oct. 23, at the Post headquarters. All those who have used, tattered or torn U.S. flags may bring them to the post at 215 River St. A receptacle will be at the post for all to discard their worn flags, or folks may also leave them with any of the Legionnaires, including Charles Roberts, Ray Hensler, Gene Pierce, Ed Binder, Lou Polantis, Jim Morwood or Carson Parker.
