“THE VOCAL VIXENS” Present: “Paris in the Springtime”
Everyone loved this trio last year! We are SO HAPPY they were able to fit us into their schedule again! “Paris in the Springtime” features fascinating and fun French-themed selections from Edith, Ella and Eartha and other popular artists. You’ll be transported to the Moulin Rouge saying “C’est Magnifique” and “Oooh La La” before the night is over!
Bob Constantino is your accompanist and arranger for this show and is a familiar sight at Bay Village. His usual vocal partner, Lyn Purmort, will be with him this evening and they will again be joined by Kathryn Parks and Hannah Jae.
Ms. Parks has performed all around Florida and especially locally. You probably saw her in one of her many performances at Venice Theater or the Manatee and Sarasota Players. She has also performed at Florida Studio Theater and the Asolo. Ms. Jae really brought the house down last year when everyone found out how old she is! Considered a “vocal prodigy,” she has won numerous competitions and has a truly natural musical ability, which also includes writing her own songs and music. We are really looking forward to a fantastic performance by “The Vocal Vixens!” See you on Thursday, June 12, at 7:30 p.m.
At this time of year, I enjoy highlighting the fact that so many of our Dining Room Wait Staff graduate from either high school or college.
During the months of May and June, the following staff members graduated: Aleanne Sosa, Megan McBride, Carlos Rodriguez, Abraham Rodriguez, Torayba Mezroub, Laura Rincon, Juan Rincon and Adam Milner.
Be sure to congratulate these graduates as you see them in the Dining Room. Some will attend college locally and will continue to be with us, while others will be attending college out of town.

Join us on Thursday, June 19, at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium as local author Eloise Hanner presents her latest book, “Posted in Paraguay.” In their late 40s, Eloise and Chuck Hanner decided they wanted to do something new and challenging for the second half of their lives. To the amazement of their friends and family, they walked away from their stock brokerage careers and joined the Peace Corps, again. 25 years before, they had gone to Afghanistan as volunteers and loved it. Come and hear their story as told by Eloise. She will have copies of the book today!
B.I.L.L. Series News
Currently, from Sarasota Adult & Community Education (ACE), Dave Tschanz is teaching “Disease and Civilization” on Mondays at 10:30 a.m. in the auditorium.
This course examines the role played by disease in the shaping of human civilization. Emphasis will be on the impact on populations rather than individuals. The final class in this series meets on June 16. This summer Mr. Tschanz will teach “The Crusades.” A description of that class as well as dates and times will be given when we get closer to its start date.
Our current DVD series from the Teaching Company is titled “The World’s Greatest Geological Wonders.” This is taught by Professor of Earth and Planetary Sciences at Washington University, Dr. Michael Wysession, who will introduce you to the Earth’s most outstanding geological destinations. Classes are at the usual B.I.L.L. time, 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday night! Happy learning, everyone!
WELLNESS CORNER …By Petra Mueller
On June 14, anybody is welcome to walk the Ringling Bridge with Petra and then have breakfast at the Holiday Inn on Lido Key overlooking the beach. If the walk is too much of a challenge for you, please feel free to come with us and enjoy the park by Bird Key until the walkers come over the bridge.
The exercise program is in full swing here during the summer. Pick your classes and make sure you participate in the well-rounded program. I offer something for every level on land and in the water—standing and seated exercises, dancing, slow moving Tai Chi and Hand Exercises for arthritic hands.
If you need personal assistance, stop by my desk where I am always available. Remember, anything you do is better than doing nothing or thinking about doing something. You will feel energized and more limber after class and maintain your strength for a fulfilled life here at Bay Village.
