Downtown Alexandria, LA.

ANNOUNCING . . .
            the  2014 HOLOCAUST MEMORIAL COMMEMORATION
Emmanuel Baptist Church, April 28, 2014 AT 7:00 pm.

General George S. Patton’s grandson will be the honored guest and featured speaker at the 2014 Holocaust Memorial Commemoration on April 28, 2014. He is George Patton Waters. His mother was the first born of General and Mrs. George S. Patton, Jr. He will share stories about his famous grandfather, General George Patton, who participated in the military maneuvers in Central Louisiana during the war, and in the liberation of the prisoners of the Holocaust.

George Patton Waters is a US Navy Reservist (1965-1970)  and CIC Officer aboard USS Braine, DD 630. His tour included one West Pac Tour consisting of 3 years aboard ship. He is a Board Member Emeritus of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation; Commissioner Emeritus of the Charleston County Aviation Authority; a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Assn. Board of Visitors; on the President’s Council of AOPA; is a board member of the Roper Hospital at Mount Pleasant, SC; serves as Vice Chairman of the National Medal of Honor Museum Foundation at Mt. Pleasant S.C., and is a past volunteer for the USS Yorktown. He is known as an excellent speaker, and no doubt, has enlightening stories to tell about his famous grandfather’s life and legacy.

This year’s commemoration will be the first event to be held after the installation of Alexandria’s Holocaust Memorial in downtown Alexandria.

ANNOUNCING . . .
                 the  2014 FUHRER/BINDURSKY CONCERT

This year’s concert will feature Pavel Gintov, a young pianist of Jewish descent from Ukraine. He was a participant in last fall’s Louisiana International Piano Competition, and gave us the gift of a brief performance at a Temple dinner following the competition. He has been acclaimed as “a world class pianist,” “a poet of the keyboard,” “a musical storyteller,” and “a master interpreter of Rachmaninov.”

The concert will be held in the Sanctuary on Sunday, April 27 at 3:00 pm.
Pavel Gintov will be the guest of
Drs. Roland and Renata Pilat who befriended him when he performed here at the Competition. A reception by the Temple Sisterhood will follow the performance. As always, the Fuhrer / Bindursky Concert will be FREE and open to the public.
