April 5 Community Sing Along

This is an experiment on a large scale of something we have done at home during Christmas holidays.  The Christmas group has had a grand time.  We had Mac Morgan lead the Christmas party and will also have them lead the Sing Along.(www.mac-morgan.com.  Lyrics to many songs will available and the public is invited to attend.  The program will start at 6:30 pm and participants can arrive and leave at will.  The first set will last about 40 minutes, break for refreshments, and the last set about 40 minutes.  During the singing sets we'll have entertainment by a young group of talented musicians, the New Fire Band, lasting about 30-40 minutes.  The program will be at the future Fine Art Center ( the historical, old elementary school downtown). This program is free to the public and is presented by SAFI.



March 29, 2008 Sculpture unveiling

Two outdoor sculptures will be installed and unveiled in the downtown area of Simpsonville.  The artist is Michael Shewmaker from Hawaii and he will be present that day.  Michael was a participant in the Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Art series 2007-2008, at Appalachian State U., NC.  The public is invited to witness this event and is invited to a reception in recognition of the artist.  Event sponsored by Simpsonville Arts Foundation Inc.
