MORE Magic Music!
Katie Eagleson is a new performer at Bay Village! The poster below certainly does a good job of describing what type of vocalist she is and what type of music you will hear this evening! Make sure you join us on Thursday, Jan. 9, at 7:30 p.m. if you enjoy easy listening tunes!
Hello everyone! Chef Chris Mandzik here … I’ve had the privilege of being here at Bay Village for five months now, and it has been such a wonderful experience. Having moved from New York to Florida, it has been a big change to say the least. My beautiful wife, Jen, and our spunky 5-year-old daughter, Emma, are adjusting very nicely.
I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and I hope you are enjoying some of the new dishes coming out of our kitchen! Early in the new year I plan on conducting a cooking demonstration and I would also like to start a “Chef’s Table” dinner event. More details to follow. Thank you all for your comments and suggestions; they are all taken to heart!
Day Trips and Travel
We have NUMEROUS events coming up that you might want to get on your calendar!
There is a wonderful costume exhibit at Ringling, so we’d like to take a group on Friday, Jan. 3, to that. We’ll have lunch at Treviso following!
We have two events reserved that are sponsored by Circus Sarasota. The first, a new show this year, “EXTREME VEGAS,” is scheduled for Jan. 17! We also have our annual trip to the fantastic Circus Sarasota reserved on Feb. 19. We’ll have lunch that day before our matinee! Watch your mail for the flyers with further details of all these trips!
MORE Magic Music!
We’re always happy to announce when “Music Beyond the Chamber” is on the schedule! Jessica Tong, violin, is the artistic director for the group and she will be telling a bit more about their organization at the concert. They send different professional chamber musicians each time, so you never know what performers to expect. This organization’s mission is to educate others as well as entertain, so you might find them in local schools, performing exciting classical music for youngsters or performing alongside other classical music students at high schools. They are a nonprofit corporation. Join us on Thursday, Jan. 23, at 7:30 p.m. for a concert you won’t soon forget!
The Piatigorsky Foundation sends us fantastic musicians, and classical guitarist Jack Sanders should be no exception! Join us on Saturday, Jan. 18, at 7:30 p.m. to hear this gentleman perform! He has performed all over the U.S. and the world. You’ll hear music from all periods tonight—not just older, classical tunes.
Wellness News- Bay Village Roadwalker Team
Get off to a good start in the new year and join the Bay Village Roadwalker Team as we conquer the 1 Mile Walk along the Bayfront, participating in the Ringling Bridge Run, a fundraising event for the Sarasota YMCA. We really had a great time at this event last year, so I hope to see a large turnout this year. There are plenty of benches along the route, by the way! We will register in the “best dressed team” category. Get your sneakers out and get moving for a good cause and a great representation from Bay Village. Petra and Kris will be your team leaders and support you to the finish line!!!
In 2014, make fitness one of your priorities. Pick a new activity that you would like to try and go for it.
During the next year, we have some surprises for you and hope to spark your interest.
B.I.L.L. Series News
Beginning on Jan. 7, we will show the remaining lectures in the DVD series, “Before 1776: Life in the American Colonies.”
Also beginning this month is our next “How Novel” series with Alice Blueglass. We still have room in that class, but space is limited, so if you would like to participate, sign up soon! Alice has chosen another great series of books, which were listed on the flyer you received about this in January. The first class is on Jan. 21, and we meet in the board room.
“IN STRIDE” Equine Therapy Presentation
We are excited to bring a representative (no, probably not an actual horse) from “In Stride Therapy” to Bay Village. This organization provides equine assisted therapy to individuals with physical and other disabilities. Come and learn more about this fascinating subject and this worthy organization!
