Vintage Pipe Organ Restored, Dedicated in Indialantic

Eastminster Presbyterian Church Presents Concert, Honors Long-Time Member    

(INDIALANTIC, FL)  January 7, 2019— A mechanical pipe organ built over a century ago now proudly swells in the sanctuary of Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Indialantic. Installed in August 2018, the 1906 Kilgen tracker pipe organ will be dedicated in a free concert on Sunday, January 20 at 3:00 PM, to the memory of Lorraine Bemiss, a music teacher and pianist, who served at Eastminster beginning in 1957.  The antique instrument, with seven ranks, nine stops and ornate pipes, was rescued from the now closed Westminster Presbyterian Church in Casselberry, Florida and acquired with the help of the Bemiss Foundation. David Vogeding, Director of Music Emeritus for Eastminster Presbyterian, will be one of the featured organists to play during the dedication concert, along with organist Frank Voltz, a close friend of the Bemiss family. Voltz performed twice for President Ronald Reagan and is in demand as a featured performer on the organ and harp. The public is invited to a reception in the church hall immediately following the dedication concert. For more information, call 321-723-8371 or visit www.epcfl.org.

Eastminster Presbyterian Church Director of Music, Teresa Fleenor, explains more about the antique instrument being dedicated.

“The only electric parts are the blower and the lamp!” said Fleenor. “The organ originally used a manual bellows that able bodied young men and women would have operated to get air into the system. We are grateful to have saved this organ from obscurity and put it to use for the glory of God. We know that Lorraine Bemiss would have been delighted with the pipe organ; we are happy to dedicate it to service in her honor.”

Public Invited to ‘Holiday Toy Gala’ Dec. 7

One Senior Place Collects Toys, Serves up Good Time

(VIERA, FL)  November 26, 2018 –  Not every Brevard child will wake up Christmas morning to a pile of gifts under the tree. For the thousands of Brevard parents who struggle to cover the essentials, Christmas presents for their kids are simply out of reach.  One Senior Place in Viera will be helping needy families cope, when they host a Holiday Toy Gala to benefit one of Brevard’s biggest toy drives on Friday, December 7 at 6:00 PM at 8085 Spyglass Hill Road.  Admission to the smart casual event is free, with a new, unwrapped toy or gift for children or teens. Walmart gift cards are particularly welcome. The large toy drive by His Place Ministries is now in its 16th year and will provide toys and gifts for more than 3000 Brevard children, many of them considered homeless.  Collected toys are staged in a room where parents can “shop” on December 20 for free gifts according to the gender and age of their children.  Approximately 800 families benefited from the toy drive last year, for children aged from toddlers through 17.  Gifts for teen girls are often underrepresented and therefore especially needed. The Holiday Toy Gala and “fun-raiser” is sponsored by A Mother’s Touch Movers and will serve up heavy hors d’oeuvres and desserts, wine and beer at the Viera marketplace for senior resources, with smooth jazz provided by saxophonist, Fred Cavese.  Attendees can purchase raffle tickets for various prizes and make additional donations for gift cards if desired.  To RSVP for the Holiday Toy Gala, call (321) 751-6771.  For more information about One Senior Place, The Experts in Aging, visit www.OneSeniorPlace.com.

CEO and founder of One Senior Place, Don Kramer explains why the Holiday Toy Gala is an important event.

“Every parent wants to be able to give their kids a happy Christmas, but many just cannot,” said Kramer. “In addition to the struggles caused by the economy, many families are also dealing with financial burdens caused by the death of a wage earner or because of medical expenses due to illness.  That’s where the toy drive and donations come in. It’s all about helping kids experience the joy of Christmas, regardless of their family’s income.”

For information on the dozens of events presented annually by One Senior Place, call 321-751-6771.  One Senior Place is a marketplace for resources and provider of information, advice, care and on-site services for seniors and their families.  To learn more about One Senior Place, The Experts in Aging visit www.OneSeniorPlace.com.
