Hello my dear friends, this will be a heavy duty week as far as fun, activities, live entertainment, cookouts and festivals. I first want to tell you all about the “Ruth Kirk Family Fun Festival,” which is celebrating their 20th year. Even though our dear friend, Ruth Kirk has passed on, her legacy in the community has
remained thanks to Cleve Brister. Vendors with food, jewelry, clothing, arts and crafts will be available, as
well as health, education and community information. For two days Saturday and Sunday, August 8 and 9 from noon until 8 p.m. there will be fun for the whole family. Live entertainment includes; local group Simple Black, Bobby Rucks Band, and The Spindells. Rosa Pryor’s dynamic Motown group, Signature Live, will set your soul on fire. I also will be doing a book signing. Come on out and enjoy.
The other thing I want to discuss with you is that The Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Fund, INC. (non-profit 501(c) 3 organization is celebrating 24 years and the last year of the organization. Yes, that is right! I am closing down the organization by the first of the year. I thank you all who have supported me through the years and believe in my mission of giving underprivileged children a chance to explore their musical talent. Children that would normally go unnoticed. To date, I have honored over 110 musicians and have given 104 children scholarships. So my dear friends and readers from all walks of life, for one last time, I am calling for the support of all my friends, fans, musicians, club owners and organizations who I have helped in some way. You can buy tickets, send a donation and/or, purchase ads in our souvenir journal for the final Rosa Pryor Music Scholarship Black & Gold Scholarships and Awards Ball, which will be Sunday,
October 25th from 4-8 p.m. at the Forum Caterers. It will be a formal black tie, red carpet event. Please contact me by email; firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 410-833-9474 and let me know how you will help us and to get information. Also, we have spots available for at least 10 more children who are gifted or talented in playing an instrument or singing to audition by August 8th. Please go to my web site www.rosapryormusic.com to get an application.
Okay folks, check out the photos to see what is coming up, I am out of space and time. Remember if you need me, call me or send an email to the phone number and email address above. UNTIL THE NEXT TIME, I’M MUSICALLY YOURS.
