Jackson County Theate The Dixie Swim Club
Date: Friday, 9/5

You're invited to the first show of our 2014-15 season!

Jackson County Community Theatre will present the first play of their 2014-15 season, the comedy, The Dixie Swim Club, September 5, 6, 12, and 13, at 7:30 PM, at the Royal Off-the-Square Theatre in Brownstown. The show was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. The trio of authors is known for clever comedy featuring women who meet life with humor and strength.
In The Dixie Swim Club, five southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their championship college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges that life flings at them, whether men, marriage, parenting, divorce, or aging. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of teamwork, rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women-a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
Tickets for The Dixie Swim Club are on sale at Family Drug in Brownstown and Bevers Pharmacy in Seymour. Patrons who live out of the area may call Family Drug, 358-4502 to reserve their tickets.

Jackson County Theate The Dixie Swim Club
Date: Friday, 9/12

You're invited to the first show of our 2014-15 season!

Jackson County Community Theatre will present the first play of their 2014-15 season, the comedy, The Dixie Swim Club, September 5, 6, 12, and 13, at 7:30 PM, at the Royal Off-the-Square Theatre in Brownstown. The show was written by Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, and Jamie Wooten. The trio of authors is known for clever comedy featuring women who meet life with humor and strength.
In The Dixie Swim Club, five southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their championship college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina's Outer Banks to catch up, laugh, and meddle in each other's lives. The Dixie Swim Club focuses on four of those weekends and spans a period of thirty-three years. As their lives unfold and the years pass, these women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges that life flings at them, whether men, marriage, parenting, divorce, or aging. And when fate throws a wrench into one of their lives, these friends, proving the enduring power of teamwork, rally around their own with the strength and love that takes this comedy in a poignant and surprising direction. The Dixie Swim Club is the story of these five unforgettable women-a hilarious and touching comedy about friendships that last forever.
Tickets for The Dixie Swim Club are on sale at Family Drug in Brownstown and Bevers Pharmacy in Seymour. Patrons who live out of the area may call Family Drug, 358-4502 to reserve their tickets.

About: Hearing loss can be a sudden or gradual decrease in how well you can hear. It is one of the most common conditions affecting older adults. Approximately one in three people between the ages of 65 and 74 has hearing loss and nearly half of those older than 75 have difficulty hearing. Having trouble hearing can make it hard to understand and follow a doctor's advice, to respond to warnings, and to hear doorbells and alarms. It can also make it hard to enjoy talking with friends and family. This can be frustrating and sometimes dangerous.

Hearing Professionals from Connect Hearing (Bloomington) will offer free hearing consultations at Area 10 Agency. The consultation takes 15 minutes, and includes answers to your hearing related health questions. Call or stop by to reserve a time; Walk-ins are also welcome!

Cost: FREE (Donations to the Center greatly appreciated)

Additional Info: Harmonicas for health has been endorsed by IU Health Bloomington Hospital’s Cardiopulmonary Rehabilitation program. Harmonicas can enhance lung function and capacity. All wind instruments can claim this benefit, but the harmonica is special because the you play notes while inhaling and exhaling, so lung control is improved in both directions. Better lung function means better health over all. This fun, free and inclusive class concentrates on exercises that mainly strengthen the diaphragm, the major set of muscles used in breathing. Just five minutes daily of harmonica exercise can make a difference. Participants may join at any time, and a free harmonica will be provided, along with handouts for practice at home.

Mary Jane Gormley is an author, musician, calligrapher and copy editor. She finds the harmonica to be a special delight, although she concedes her enthusiasm “outruns” her talent. Despite her modesty, Mary Jane has enriched and touched the lives of many, many students over the years she has offered this popular class through the Endwright Center.

This year marks the 30th Anniversary of the Christmas Tour and release of Mannheim Steamroller Christmas, an album that revolutionized the Holiday Season music category. It’s also the 40th Anniversary of Davis’ first album in his Fresh Aire series which pioneered the New Age music category.

Grammy Award® winner Chip Davis will direct and co-produce Tour performances with MagicSpace Entertainment. The show features classic Christmas hits from Mannheim Steamroller and multimedia effects in an intimate setting.

In addition to being a holiday tradition for many families, the Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Tour regularly attracts repeat attendance from multi-generational guests and is one of the longest running tours in the music industry.

Davis plans to release a new album, Mannheim Steamroller 30/40, this fall. In celebration of the 30th Anniversary Christmas Tour, tracks will include Christmas fan favorites while selections from Davis’ iconic Fresh Aire series and recordings by his daughter, Elyse, will celebrate 40 years of ground-breaking sound.




Mannheim Steamroller has sold more than 40 million albums, 28 million in the Christmas genre. With a total of twelve holiday CDs, an average of eight Mannheim Steamroller Christmas albums occupy Billboard’s Top Seasonal Chart every year.

With 19 gold, 8 multi-platinum and 4 platinum-certified records, Chip Davis is among an elite group of artists that include U2, Jay-Z, and The Beach Boys with such certifications.

About Chip Davis and Mannheim Steamroller
From his longtime home in Omaha, Neb., Mannheim Steamroller creator Chip Davis makes innovative music inspired by the sounds of another age. This former teacher and jingle writer founded the music industry’s largest independent recording label, American Gramaphone, in 1974 when industry executives said Davis’ innovative 18th century instrumental rock sound would never sell. In addition to a Grammy Award, Davis is largely credited with establishing the New Age music category that revolutionized the making and marketing of holiday music. His first Christmas album was released in 1984; the album’s success made Christmas records a “must do” for all music artists. With more than 40 million total records sold including 28 million Christmas albums, Mannheim Steamroller founder Chip Davis is the #1-selling Christmas artist of all time.
Davis, one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the music industry, offers a rich array of lifestyle products on www.mannheimsteamroller.com including hot chocolate, food, apparel and novelty items. His latest achievement is creating a cutting edge psychoacoustic technology that is being used in major medical institutions such as Mayo Clinic and is also being studied by NASA for potential use in space.

Mannheim Steamroller Christmas by Chip Davis is produced by MagicSpace Entertainment. The company is headed by Lee D. Marshall, Joe Marsh, John Ballard, Steve Boulay and Bruce Granath and has been producing and presenting national tours, Broadway shows, concerts and museum exhibits worldwide for over 30 years.
