General Meeting - June 25, 2019, 10:00am Program: DazzLinn Entertainment Musical Presentation
Our June program will be very special. It will be pure entertainment—fun and full of energy. Our guests are from DazzLinn Family Entertainment, the Triad's newest musical production company. They specialize in family fare including hits from the 50s and 60s (most of us remember that era). They also present a variety of other shows: Rock-n-Roll Revue, Kickin’ Country, Glorious Gospel, Beach Music Celebration, and Legends Tribute. For our program they will perform some of their favorite high energy singing and dancing pieces. Providing a program for us will involve several performers from their company. We encourage members to bring guests — spouses, friends, neighbors. This will be great program for prospective members to see.

DAY TRIP GALS: Friday, June 14, 9:30 am If you appreciate art, join the Day Trip Gals on a special trip to see the Fresco paintings by Benjamin F. Long IV. The world famous Ben Long, who grew up in North Carolina, is one of few artists today to be recognized as a master of the art of fresco-painting on wet plaster, the process used by Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel. Long apprenticed in Florence, Italy, under Maestro Pietro Annigoni for nearly eight years before returning to his native North Carolina. The Frescos that we plan to experience are housed in two small country churches that are about 1½ hours from Winston-Salem. We will begin at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Glendale Springs, NC, then head to St. Mary’s Church in West Jefferson, NC. After our visit, we will have lunch in West Jefferson and, if desired, visit some of the interesting shops in their downtown area. Time permitting, we will have a bonus visit to Ashe Cheese Factory in West Jefferson, to see how cheese is made in North Carolina.
