The Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers and Friends Benefit Concert
The Ernest Bloch Bell Ringers and friends will present a benefit concert for Coastal Seniors’ Meals on Wheels program. Four and a half octaves of English handbells, along with chimes, will ring on several ensemble pieces including “A Song of Love,” “Alleluia! Rejoice and Sing,” “My Heart Will Go On,” and the group’s signature piece, the haunting“Andante in F Minor.”
Vocalist Sita Milchev will join the bell ringers on “Moon River.” Remi Alexander will perform “Part of My World.” Linda Bostwick and Cinnamon Rippey will lead the audience sing-a-long on “Let There Be Peace on Earth.”
Local musicians will also join the bell ringers. Dan Laux on hammered dulcimer will join the ringers on “Londonderry Air.” Karl Young on shakuhachi, Japanese flute, will perform “For the Beauty of the Earth.” Mary Visher and Cyndy Solomon will place the flute duet on recorders on “Jig on an Appalachian Folk Melody.” The irrepressible Eric Kritz will join the bell ringers on clarinet on “The Pink Panther” and “The Entertainer.”
The concert will be performed on Sunday, June 9, 2019 at 3:00 P.M. at Gualala Arts Center.
Ticket prices are $15.00 in advance, $20.00 day of.
Children are invited to attend at no cost if they have an accompanying adult.

June Spaghetti Dinner

May Spaghetti Dinner
Coastal Seniors would like to thank the Gualala Lions Club members for hosting our monthly dinner benefiting our Meals on Wheals program on Friday, May 24th. Given their already busy community service schedule, we are so lucky to have the Lions host each year. Twenty-two Lions showed up in force and it was a true team effort! On the menu was perfectly cooked spaghetti (as noted by more than a few diners), meatless pasta sauce with plenty of fresh veggies and meatballs so big (and delicious) they could have been a meal by themselves! In addition to the great food, the tables were decorated to give the hall a true Italian restaurant feel.
We also had three Point Arena High School students on hand to help make sure diners had all they needed. Thanks to Yazmin Carbajal, Vannessa Spencer, and Corynne Spencer for donating your time for a great cause.
We were lucky to have a custom gift basket to raffle that was donated to us by Gail Spencer and Sandy Lockhart. The basket included coffee beans, assorted teas, hot cocoa, Ghirardelli chocolate and two bone china mugs - perfect for spending a cozy evening on the coast.
As always, special thanks to Gualala Supermarket, Surf Market, and Gualala Community Center for providing beverages, food, and venue.
