The Welcome Home celebration for our troops returning from deployment has been in the plans for months and is finally scheduled for tomorrow (October 2)!  Here is the communication from Tom Brewer:

 

"We have a Welcome Home flight scheduled for tomorrow.  We must be at the hangar around 9:50 am with the arrival time scheduled for 12:50 pm. Those interested in participating, meet at Grace Church around 9:00 am and we'll convoy to the base.  Be advised that these flights may not arrive as scheduled, sometimes early, more often late.  This particular flight is smaller than most with between 80 and 90 returning troops.  Anyway, we have a flight and are looking forward to welcoming home these soldiers.  Thanks, Tom"

 

Hope a number of us will be able to join in this great event!

October is here, and the church calendar and server list are posted on Grace website--www.gracehopkinsville.org.  As usual, our schedule is in a constant state of change, and we already have one for October.  Since the Rector will be out of town on October 20, our Celtic service has been moved to October 27 at 6:00 pm.    

Music at Midday

 

The Music at Midday series returns on Thursday, October 24 at noon.  There will be short organ recitals on our historic Estey Pipe Organ each Thursday through November 21.  Steve Wiggin will play on October 24, and November 7 and 21.  Brendan Jones will play October 31.  On November 14 Dan Wilkinson will play. 

 

The pipe organ at Grace Church was installed in 1906.  It was a gift of John C. Latham, Jr., in memory of his mother, Virginia, a long-time member of the Grace Church choir.  The organ was totally rebuilt in 2009 by the Milnar Organ Company of Eagleville, Tennessee.  It consists of over 850 pipes, divided into 15 sets, playable from three keyboards, two played by hands and one by feet.  Pipes vary in size from the smallest, about the size of a pencil, to the largest, pipes made of wood that are about a foot square and close to ten feet tall.  

 

All are invited to these programs.
