Bastille Day Celebration

Starring: The Irving Sisters 
We couldn’t get enough of Elise LaBarge last year, so she is coming back with Sarah Simmons and Linda Kathleen Christ as The Irving Sisters. The three Irving Sisters are classically trained singers with Masters degrees in Music and a serious love of three-part harmony and jazz hands. They teach, they act, they sing opera, they sing cabaret. Mostly, they walk around with the tunes of the Andrews Sisters, the Boswell Sisters and the Chordettes bouncing around their heads, through their heels and into their microphone. We are thrilled to have them perform at our Bastille Day celebration this year! Menu includes: Roast beef, sides, bread, two (2) glasses of wine, and dessert.

This presentation will feature great pictures and trivia on his life and music and include select songs he made popular such as “Stranger in Paradise”, “Rags to Riches”, “I Wanna Be Around” and of course his biggest smash hit “I Left My Heart in San Francisco”.

Dating Photographs Through Clothing

Family photographs are hard to date once the generation pictured has passed away.  Many people have unidentified photos in their collection.  Determining an approximate date may help you to know whether the woman in the photo is your grandmother or your great-grandmother.  This is where costume dating can be helpful.  Becoming familiar with certain popular silhouettes enables one to assign a date range to a photograph, thus helping to identify those pictured.  Basic facial recognition will also be covered which will help identify the same person in several photos over time. There are some good, easy tricks which you will learn in this presentation.  *If you would like, please bring 1-2 photographs prior to the day of the program and we will all try to date them for you using the techniques in the presentation.  
Lunch will include a grilled chicken sandwich, potato chips and dessert.
