We are thrilled to announce the return of the enormously talented duo of Brian Gurl & Katherine Alexandra. They will perform on March 17th in the auditorium at 7:30 p.m.
Last time they were here, they performed to a packed house and received a standing ovation. Brian and Katherine are both classically trained vocalists and outstanding pianists! Katherine received her degree from The Moscow Conservatory from her native Russia. Brian is also a musical director and has written, produced and stared in over 20 musical productions over the years.
Katherine and Brian put their musical talents together a little over two years ago and they continue to capture the attention and hearts of people all over the country.
This is a “do-not-miss” performance, everyone!

** Dining Services Staff Appreciation Day **
Did you know that March 7th is “Bay Village Dining Services Staff Appreciation Day”? Back in 2002, after the completion of the kitchen renovation, the Bay Village Board of Directors decreed March 7th as Dining Services Staff Appreciation Day.
This was done in recognition for the Dining Services staff’s efforts during the main kitchen renovation. The staff prepared meals in a temporary kitchen at the back of the building and did not miss a beat during the five-month project.
As you go about your day on Monday, March 7, please recognize the Dining Services staff for their efforts. I know they will appreciate it.
