SAVANNAH FOLK MUSIC SOCIETY WELCOMES JOHN FLYNN IN CONCERT
AT FIRST PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH FRIDAY FEBRUARY 27TH AT 7:30PM.. 
JOHN FLYNN: www.johnflynn.net JOHN FLYNN: In an era of deep division, John Flynn’s songs call us together as they speak for the wounded, the weary, and the afflicted; for the prisoner, the soldier and all the forgotten ones who walk unseen in our midst. Fusing the vision of an activist with the unblinking eye of a truth-teller, John Flynn’s music speaks deeply to the heart and the spirit. A wordsmith and poet of rare clarity, he evokes our shared humanity as he addresses the times we live in through songs that resound with awareness, irony, humor and compassion. The open heartedness and resonant decency in Flynn’s work have made him a staple of Phil Ochs Song Nights across the country, and brought him the respect and friendship of longtime heroes like Kris Kristofferson and Arlo Guthrie. Sally Millbury Steen of Pacem in Terris calls John Flynn “A troubadour of justice, mercy and hope. John was a featured performer at our 2013 Savannah Folk Music Festival and is happy to be back for this one show ……don’t miss this rare opportunity to see him in concert.    Savannah Folk Music Society is pleased to present JOHN FLYNN in concert.      Venue: “Stewart Hall” First Presbyterian Church, 520 Washington Avenue, Savannah GA 31405      Time: 7:30 pm

SOLARIZE TYBEE SPREADS TO ALL OF CHATHAM COUNTY
NOW THRU mid April

THE SOLARIZE TYBEE IS GOING ON NOW AND APPLIES TO ALL OF CHATHAM COUNTY.  ENROLL TODAY FOR A FREE ASSESSMENT OF YOUR PROPERTY. 
With the Solarize Tybee program, the more people who sign up, the cheaper the solar panels get for everyone who wants them in Chatham County.
A little more than a week into enrollment, 174 people had expressed interest, prompting organizer Paul Wolff to predict that the price will drop significantly by the end of enrollment in mid-April.   Solar energy is a clean alternative fuel source but its high price tag makes it nearly impossible for many people in Chatham County to afford, until now.   In February, the Solarize Tybee program will officially begin and now, because of the enormous number of positive responses organizers have received, it's being expanded beyond Tybee Island to the entire county.   "Everyone in Chatham County, whether it's a governmental entity, a business or a resident, can put solar panels on it's rooftop and save money through this program," said Tybee Councilman, Paul Wolff.   Wolff is the brains behind the operation, which works like this:  Instead of purchasing an expensive unit alone, Solarize Tybee pools everyone's funds together, and gets a wholesale price instead.  "We're probably going to get between a 15-30% discount for anyone who signs up," said Wolff.  He estimates a 5 kilowatt system which would typically cost between $13-15,000 dollars to install, will likely cost less than $10,000.  Once you sign up you are not committed to using the program; however, you will get a free assessment to determine if your site is a good candidate for solar.  To further incentivize participation, Hannah Solar has offered to donate to local nonprofits up to five solar arrays, a total of 35 kilowatts of solar in all. The donations kick in as community participation reaches various tiered levels. Tybee’s Community Resource Committee is still deciding how to choose the recipients, though consideration will be given to the recommendations of those signing contracts, Wolff said.

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.
