Kennedy, Foundation executive director.“We continue to be excited about being a part of the good work taking place in communities throughout Alabama,” Kennedy said.Vicki Pritchett, Johnson Center executive director, expressed appreciation to the Daniel Foundation for the grant funding and for the Foundation’s acknowledgement of the importance of The Annex to the Troy community. “The Daniel Foundation Challenge Grants are matching grants and the Foundation’s challenge serves as an encouragement for other funding,” Pritchett said. “This grant is the result of our grant request to the Daniel Foundation last spring. Now, we must find the necessary funding to meet the challenge.”Pritchett said The Annex was made available to the Johnson Center through the generosity of the late Corley “Brother” Chapman, Jr., who sold the former barbershop building to the Johnson Center for $10. Chapman supported the efforts of the arts center to provide an art education facility for the community.“The Johnson Center’s goal is to renovate The Annex, which is located at the right rear corner of our block,” Pritchett said. “Plans are to renovate the building to include two K-12 classrooms with all the standard classroom amenities. We also plan to add one large adult continuing education space with workroom and bathroom at the back of The Annex. A large workroom at the rear of the building will allow space for community adult art classes in a variety of media.”Also included in the plans for The Annex will be an open-air grassy area for small art events.

Approximately 14,000 U.S. and 8,500 Australian personnel will participate.During their visit, Fitzgerald and McCampbell Sailors will get the opportunity to visit the city and interact with the people of Sydney and make a difference in the life of local Australians by doing community service projects.“Right now we have two community service projects scheduled for just the Fitzgerald alone,” said Lt. Daniel E. Clark, Destroyer Squadron 15 chaplain. “The first project is going to take place at the Children’s Hospital Randwick and the other project is volunteering at the Cancer Council.

What would Jesus do with his old Christmas tree?

first_imgDear Editor:As we approach the end of this Holiday season, I would like to take this opportunity to discuss a couple of thoughts that have crossed my mind. The first is about a very sad sight that seems to happen every year. Immediately after Christmas Day, I am faced with a most desolate vision, the depressing view of discarded Christmas trees at the curb awaiting their final fate at the hands of sanitation workers. This is woefully wrong. The Christmas season officially ends on January 6, Epiphany, or Three Kings Day. On that day, three kings, or magi, from the Orient visited the infant Jesus. Consequently, the Christmas decorations, to include the Christmas tree, should be taken down on January 7, the day following Epiphany. The second is a bit more philosophical. At the beginning of each year, you are given the first blank page of a 365-page book. Each minute is a word; each week, a paragraph; and each month, a chapter. It is your book! Write a good one! And be sure to save a few words, so you can make changes as needed, as you write these all-important pages. Have a happy, healthy and prosperous 2018. John Di Geniolast_img read more
