SENIOR CITIZENS INCOPORATED AND GEORGIA SOUTERN UNIVERSITY BRINGS FOCUS TO ELDER ABUSE BY HOSTING THE ANNUAL ELDER ABUSE CONFERENCE AT THE COASTAL GEORGIA CENTER ON FRIDAY OCTOBER 3RD. SAVANNAH, Ga. - Senior Citizens, Inc. (SCI), a nonprofit dedicated to helping people age successfully, and Georgia Southern University have joined together to co-host the annual Elder Abuse Conference in downtown Savannah, at the Coastal Georgia Center, on October 3, 2014. The one day conference features professionals from around the state of Georgia speaking on the many issues associated with elder abuse and the implications on those adults who are at risk of abuse. The goal of the conference is to educate professionals and individuals attending on the serious offense of elder abuse. “Our inaugural conference last year was a great success.  We received excellent feedback and look forward to increasing knowledge on this important topic,” said Jenny House, Vice President, Senior Citizens, Inc. According to the National Center of Elder Abuse, research suggests that only about 1 in 14 cases of Elder Abuse are reported to authorities. The study found that for every one case reported to authorities, there are 24 cases not being reported. With a growing elderly population, the risk factors for higher numbers of abuse cases increase every year. “The Senior Citizens, Inc. mission revolves around protecting and enhancing the lives of seniors in our community, therefore we are proud to be partners with Georgia Southern University in bringing this issue into the foreground,” said House. The agenda for the conference will focus on detecting and preventing elder abuse through these topics: Overview of Elder Abuse, The Guiding Principles of Adult Protective Services, Court Case – from Report to Prosecution, Elder Abuse in Long Term Care Settings, Financial Exploitation, and Elder Abuse and Your Employees – Help for HR. Participants may be eligible to receive continuing education units for attendance of the conference. CEU’s applied for include Licensed Professional Counselors Association (LPCA), Institute of Certified Bankers (ICB), Georgia State Bar Association, Peace Officer Standards & Training (POST), Marriage and Family Therapists (MAFT), Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) and National Association of Social Workers (NASW).Conference participants will be awarded .700 CEU’s, equivalent to 7.00 credit hours through the Division of Continuing Education, Georgia Southern University. Participation is highly encouraged to all those looking for CEU credits or interested in learning more about elder abuse. Fees are $80 or $90 after September 27, 2014. Conference fees include one day of sessions, conference materials, refreshment breaks, lunch and continuing education credits.

ASBURY MEMORIAL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH FOR ANNUAL GOD ON   BROADWAY SERIES
10/4

ASBURY MEMORIAL UNITED METHODIST CHURCH KICKS OFF ITS 10TH ANNUAL GOD ON BROADWAY SERIES WITH ‘HAIR ON SATURDAY, OCTOBER 4TH. SAVANNAH, GA – September 9th, 2014 Asbury Memorial United Methodist Church (UMC) announces the program for its annual God on Broadway series.  This innovative worship series is the focus of Asbury Memorial UMC’s regular Sunday morning services at 11:15 am throughout October which are held in the church located at 1008 E. Henry Street (corner of East Henry and Waters). The 2014 series kicks off on October 4th with Hair followed by Little Shop of Horrors on October 12th, The Fantasticks on October 19th (a prelude to the Asbury Memorial Theatre’s full production in November) and concludes with The Lion King on October 26th 2014. The musical theatre focus of each service leads to vibrant worship with songs from the shows led by the Reverend Billy Hester who masterfully interprets each show to have meaning in the Christian life.  The various plots lend themselves to lively sermons focused around topics such as self-esteem, forgiveness, transformation, social justice, and other issues that impact our everyday lives.  Now in its 10th year, God On Broadway has become a popular annual event and draws upon the skills of Billy Hester, who along with his wife Cheri, has a background in the performing arts.  The Hesters moved to Savannah in the 1980s and rebuilt Asbury Memorial UMC to become a church committed to expressing the joy of God creatively with a thriving and supportive congregation.  Rev. Billy Hester said, “It’s important to reach out to spread the good news to wider audiences with innovative types of worship.”

Each year, picnickers can enter the Picnic Contest where they are encouraged to design an imaginative picnic spread that is inspired by the theme of the evening including beauty, love, elegance, and romance.  “We’re amazed every year by the creativity of picnickers, not only their picnic spreads, but the interesting costumes that some choose to wear,” added Parker. “Many of the theme entrants suggested that people wanted a theme of nostalgia. The romantic theme chosen was a combination of a number of ideas entered."   This year, Parker’s invited the public to suggest this year’s theme and received over 300 entries.  The annual free concert is highlighted by a performance by the Savannah Philharmonic as well as a number of featured performers, and draws crowds of as many as 20,000 picnickers. “There are endless great musical selections that the Philharmonic can choose,” said David Pratt, executive director, who along with Peter Shannon, conductor, will coordinate the musical presentations of all of this year’s performers.  The song “Fly Me to the Moon” was made famous by recordings by African American cabaret singer Mabel Mercer, and later by Johnny Mathis.

 I am pleased to announce that the Savannah Morning News is going hold the first ever Savannah Amateur Table Tennis (Ping Pong) Classic on Saturday, October 25 at The Armstrong Center benefitting Union Mission and the Empty Stocking Fund.  All of the net proceeds from the event will be split equally between the two organizations and go towards those who need assistance in our community.  Festivities will include a 64-player round-robin tournament beginning at 3 p.m. with a player’s meeting.  At 4 p.m., the event gets into full swing with best of three matches between the players as the first stage of the bracketed tournament begins.  At 6 p.m., a celebration starts that goes throughout the night and includes food, drink, networking and cheering for your favorite players.   The event culminates with the championship match later in the evening.   In addition, depending on registrations, we are looking to add a women’s division and a senior’s division.  This is going to be fun.  Players are encouraged to dress in their favorite outfits/costumes and will enter the playing area to the tune of their favorite song.  We will have four Olympic size table tennis tables on hand and have former US National Table Tennis Team Member and 1996 US Olympic Alternate Derek May  on hand as well for an exhibition match.  We hope you join us in supporting this event by choosing to be a sponsor.  I have attached both the sponsor form and player registration to this communication for your consideration.  Sponsorships come with player registrations and guest tickets.  Our goal is to have at least 300 people in attendance.  And, the good news, the Georgia football team is off on that particular Saturday.

JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AND COLONILA GROUP 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME.
11/10

THE 15TH ANNUAL SAVANNAH BUSINESS HALL OF FAME IS BEING HOSTED BY THE JUNIOR ACHIEVEMENT AND COLONIAL GROUP MONDAY NOVEMBER 10TH. THIS YEARS EVENT WILL HONOR JOE BUCK AND GENE CARTLEDGE.  Junior Achievement and Colonial Group Announce Laureates for 15th Annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame on November 10  This year’s event will honor Joe Buck and Gene Cartledge as 2014 Savannah Business Hall of Fame Inductees  SAVANNAH, Ga. – Junior Achievement of Georgia-Coastal Region is pleased to announce the names of the laureates for the 15th annual Savannah Business Hall of Fame being held on Monday, November 10, at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center. This year’s honorees are Dr. Joseph A. Buck and Eugene Cartledge.   Junior Achievement (JA), along with Colonial Group, will host this year’s Savannah Business Hall of Fame where inductees will be honored for their business accomplishments as well as their extensive contributions to the community.    A leader in education for our community with his commitment to the educational needs of students, Dr. Joe Buck has been the Savannah-Chatham County School Board President since 2006. As an administrator for almost 40 years at Armstrong State University, he built valuable relationships between the university and the community before retiring in 2006 as vice president of student affairs. He also assisted in the execution of two key leadership programs, Leadership Savannah and Leadership Georgia, which help professionals gain leadership skills and a greater understanding of their community.  Mr. Eugene Cartledge, a national business leader and advocate for young children, decided to make his home in Savannah after spending much of his career in Virginia and New York. As former president of Union Camp, the largest paper manufacturer in the United States, Cartledge is credited with leading the company through its largest expansion ever and supporting the development of The Landings. He also serves or has served as the director on the boards of many notable companies including Delta Airlines and Sunoco, hosts multiple charitable events at his home and has served on the Endowment Board of Bethesda Academy for the past six years.  According to Johnathon Barrett, vice president of JA of Georgia, this event provides a representation of what it takes to be successful to students.  “These inductees demonstrate to our children that the giving of one’s self is a large part of being successful,” he said. “In the words of Calvin Coolidge, ‘No person was ever honored for what he received. Honor has been the reward for what he gave.’ I think our inductees are great testaments to that philosophy, giving back to the Savannah community and leaving a positive impression on the lives of young people.”  The Savannah Business Hall of Fame is Savannah’s premier black tie business event. The gala will be held at the Savannah International Trade and Convention Center on Monday, November 10, beginning at 6 p.m. with a cocktail reception, featuring an upscale silent auction. A three-course dinner and the awards ceremony will follow, featuring video montages produced by WTOC. The evening will culminate with a champagne toast to the inductees who will be honored. More than 500 guests are slated to attend the event. Sponsorship and tickets are available for the Savannah Business Hall of Fame.

CPR SEEKS HELP FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOGS
TFN

COASTAL PET RESCUE IS SEEKING DONATIONS FOR HEARTWORM POSITIVE DOG TREATMENTS.  It's been a long year for Coastal Pet Rescue, and with 99 canine intakes this year,   it's only going to be longer.  So far, Coastal Pet Rescue has treated five canines for heartworms, and two more are still awaiting their turn, but help is urgently needed to fund the medical care.  Although heartworms are preventable thanks to monthly medications, many of the dogs Coastal Pet Rescue rescues have not been kept current -  If ever at all - on the prevention, and thus need the expensive treatments.  Treatments can run $600 to $1200 depending upon the severity of the infestation, and since Coastal Pet Rescue does not believe in passing on the excessive medical bills for adopters and instead charges only a flat $150 adoption fee, there's a lot left to cover.  Donations may be made online at coastalpetrescue.org/donate or by mail to Coastal Pet Rescue, PO Box
30462, Savannah, GA 31410.

THE CITY OF SAVANNAH ANNOUNCES A NEW SYSTEM FOR BULK COLLECTION.  CITIZENS MAY SCHEDULE THEIR BULK COLLECTION BY CALLING 311.  Residents will still have a scheduled week each month to receive bulk item collection with no additional charge, but collection will no longer be automatic.

Any items placed out off-schedule will also be removed for a fee. Sanitation calendar magnets were distributed to residents at the start of the year.
