October 8 Update

Hello All There - Couple of quick updates: 1. The 4th Annual "Gaels of Music" Variety Concert Fundraiser to benefit the Eddie Ivie Scholarship for Study in Ireland is scheduled for 13 October at the Emma Kelly Theate in the Averitt Centre for the Arts in Statesboro, Georgia. All information including ticket prices, show time, coach fare from Savannah, meet and greet session with performers is available at the Emerald Eddie Society WebPage (www.emeraldeddie.com). Performers include: Gabriel Donohue Danny Ray Cole Harry O'Donoghue Frank Emerson Johnnie Kennedy Irish Dancers of Savannah Special Performances by Music Majors from Georgia Southern University 2. Performing that night at Kevin Barry's Pub - actually filling in for me - is our great pal and fabulous musician Carroll Brown. We'll all be heading back there after the concert to have a nightcap and maybe even sit in with Carroll, unbeknownst to him. 3. The World War II Monument, "A World Apart" to be erected just across River Street from Kevin Barry's is still in need of donations. As an attachment, I've enclosed a jpeg of an order form. The form is for an enscribed brick to be made a permanent part of the monument, honoring a World War II veteran in your family. The whole thing is sponsored by the Veterans Council of Chatham County, Georgia. You can get all sorts of information at their website (www.veteranscouncilofchathamcounty.com). 4. In remembrance of all military lives lost and altered in defense of and preservation of the United States, have a look at Honor and Remember (www.honorandremember.org). That's about it for now. I'll be performing at Kevin Barry's on 12, 14 and 15 October. Take care, drop a line and maybe even come see a show. All the best, Frank
