EVENTS UPDATE

I can't believe that the last post was October 17th. I must say I'm a bit embarrassed, but we have been busy. (that was me, blushing)

This week is big, big, big and starts tomorrow!

Monday is an all day workshop put on by Acenet called Regional Flavor, Identifying New Marketing Opportunities for your Business. It starts at 9:00 am and wraps up at 5:30 pm. They are always comming up with new ideas over there on Columbus Rd. It is such a fantastic resource for individuals to get a start with great business ideas.

Citzens for our Neighborhoods will meet on Wed November 8 from about 7:00 to 9:00, that will be lead by Milt Greek.

Thursday is our first event by the Athens Music Club stop on by for an evening of Gypsy/Jazz music from The Coolville Hot Club (formerly known as the Gadjo Kings) return to the stage once again to perform this week on November 9 . Often described as a "Django Reinhardt Tribute Band" its the only band in town playing authentic renditions of hot gypsy jazz from the 1930's and 40's, with a little Appalachian flavor and Rock n' Roll sensibility thrown into the mix. Members of the band: Art Werger and Jeff Carr on guitars; Mark Burhans on violin; John Douglas on bass. Music starts at 7:30.


And on Saturday, November 11 the long awaited for QUILT DISCOVERY
The community is invited to bring in quilts pre-dating 1950 and have them documented using the information already known by the owner and what quilt experts Ellice Ronsheim and Leslie Floyd can tell us using thier knowledge of color, pattern, and fabrics. It will be a fascinating day of decorative arts history with a hats off to the hard work of quilters long ago. I love dreaming about fabric being bought and patterns planned so many years ago....... The quilts that are brought in will be documented, photographed, and oooed and awed over with Ohio University Press compiling the info for a future book! Come take a look, whether you have quilts or not, just stop on by!
