The Guys

The Central New York Playhouse @ Shoppingtown Mall 3649 Erie Blvd. E. Syracuse, NY 13214

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He's looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story. Thursdays 8pm, $10 Fridays 8pm, $15 Saturday 8pm, $15 Sunday 2pm $10 (There is no matinee Sunday September 7th)

Sunday Fiddle Concert Series

North American Fddlers' Hall of Fame & Museum 1121 Comins Rd. Redfield, NY 13437 (Osceola)

On Sunday, August 31, Fiddlers’ Hall of Fame inductee Ernie McDonald, of Parish, will play a concert of old-time fiddle music. Ernie is a true, self-taught, old time fiddler with a sweet style and solid rhythm that go straight to the listener's heart. His unique interpretations have won him the admiration and affection of many friends and fans over the years. Ernie's love of fiddling comes naturally, having grown up listening to his father play fiddle and piano at joyous hoedowns at his grandmother's home. He learned his first tune, a challenging number called “Flop-eared Mule,” from his father's cousin, Ken Wolfe. Years later, after having composed many tunes of his own, Ernie was voted the 1995 inductee for New York State into the Fiddlers' Hall of Fame. Although he has been challenged by a paralyzing stroke and more recent health problems, Ernie's determination to play and his joy in music have enabled him to continue entertaining his listeners.

They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith.

The Guys

The Central New York Playhouse @ Shoppingtown Mall 3649 Erie Blvd. E. Syracuse, NY 13214

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He's looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story. Thursdays 8pm, $10 Fridays 8pm, $15 Saturday 8pm, $15 Sunday 2pm $10 (There is no matinee Sunday September 7th)

ART OPENING RECEPTION PAINTINGS BY ED CHRISTIANA

Unitarian Universalist Church of Utica, 10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 135021

On September 6th the UU Church of Utica will present paintings by noted local artist Ed Christiana. The reception will include both alcoholic and non-alcoholic refreshments. The paintings will be displayed throughout the months of September and October. For those unfamiliar with Mr. Christiana and his works, the following introduction was prepared by his daughter Kim Domenico. Brief Biography of Edward Christiana by Kim Christiana Domenico In notes for the catalog for the 1989 Retrospective Exhibition held for my father at Munson-Williams Proctor Institute, curator Easton Pribble stated, “If there were to be an honorary title – Painter Laureate – of the Mohawk Valley, Edward Christiana would certainly be the prime qualifier for that distinction.” Easton points out my father’s “fascination and delight in subjects that range from the humblest back lots to the majestic forms of Katahdin and Rainier.” At different times in his long career, my father worked in both watercolors and oils. Of his skills as a watercolorist, Easton wrote, “One would be hard put to find an artist with a broader understanding of the unlimited technical possibilities or of the many aesthetic approaches to making pictures with this medium.” After 1976, he worked exclusively in water colors. Every show of my father’s work is a special show. Not only was his talent remarkable (or his mastery of style, as art critics would say), and the array of subjects and geographical locations dazzling, but, as Easton points out, his “love or curiosity about the people, places and things in his life,” many of them places familiar to us but which his art has helped us to see, sings out of every work. Born in 1912 in White Plains, NY, to Isaiah Robert (Bob) and Evelyn McAndless Christiana, my father, the eldest of 4, was raised in Ilion, NY. He graduated from Pratt Institute in Brooklyn NY in 1933. He career as an art instructor at the Munson-Williams-Proctor School of Art began in 1943 and continued until his retirement in 1982. He married Constance Steber, of Ilion (died 2008), in 1944; their four children are Gary Christiana, Kim (and Orin) Domenico, Thon (and Jill) Christiana, and Aaron Christiana. There are 7 grandchildren.

Unitarian Universalist Church Sunday Service

10 Higby Rd, Utica, NY 13501

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.

The Guys

The Central New York Playhouse @ Shoppingtown Mall 3649 Erie Blvd. E. Syracuse, NY 13214

Less than two weeks after the September 11th attacks, New Yorkers are still in shock. One of them, an editor named Joan, receives an unexpected phone call on behalf of Nick, a fire captain who has lost most of his men in the attack. He's looking for a writer to help him with the eulogies he must present at their memorial services. Nick and Joan spend a long afternoon together, recalling the fallen men through recounting their virtues and their foibles, and fashioning the stories into memorials of words. In the process, Nick and Joan discover the possibilities of friendship in each other and their shared love for the unconquerable spirit of the city. As they make their way through the emotional landscape of grief, they draw on humor, tango, the appreciation of craft in all its forms—and the enduring bonds of common humanity. THE GUYS is based on a true story. Thursdays 8pm, $10 Fridays 8pm, $15 Saturday 8pm, $15 Sunday 2pm $10 (There is no matinee Sunday September 7th)

Utica College: Macfarlane Auditorium

On Thursday, Sept. 18, Film@UC will present the 2014 film “1971” as part of Utica College’s Cultural Events series.

Finger Lakes Mud Run

Everest Park, 5342 North Rd, Auburn, NY 13021

The Finger Lakes Mud Run at Everest Park is a challenging, military-style trail run that’s intended to pit participants against one of THREE EXTREME COURSES. Yes, THREE! Each wave of participants joins a stampede of literally hundreds who’ll trudge through thick field grasses, over wooded underbrush, down and out of deep gullies, and ultimately face jaw-dropping obstacles––each designed to encourage teamwork and camaraderie. The Finger Lakes Mud Run has THREE courses in 2014! Our first is the 5K short course, which is designed for those who’re looking for a fun challenge, but aren’t quite ready for the big time! Our second course is the 14K long course that explores over 750 acres of dense forest, sun-baked fields, and terrain that even scares the wildlife! Our third course, introduced in 2013, is the ever-popular Mini Muddy. This course lets kids ages 6-12 get completely covered in mud, just like the rest of the family! The Finger Lakes Mud Run remains a volunteer-organized event that uses 100% of its net proceeds to extend the mission of Everest Park by offering a restful retreat for families of children who are experiencing life-altering health issues.

Unitarian Universalism is a caring, open-minded religion that encourages seekers to follow their own spiritual paths. Our community welcomes new members and draws on many religious sources, welcoming people with different beliefs. We are united by shared values, not by creed or dogma. Unitarian Universalism combines two traditions: the Universalists, who organized in 1793, and the Unitarians, who organized in 1825. They consolidated into the Unitarian Universalist Association in 1961. (Taken from http://www.uua.org/ ) Unitarian Universalism is a liberal religion that embraces theological diversity; we welcome different beliefs and affirm the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Working for justice in our world is a principal way for Unitarian Universalists to express their faith. Unitarian Universalists have a rich religious community withSunday and holiday services and life passage celebrations.
