- Violin Virtuoso Kim Angelis To Give Concert in Calaveras County May 13
Rail Road Flat, CA...Back by popular demand, violinist Kim Angelis of Astoria, Oregon will return to her former hometown of Rail Road Flat to give a fundraising performance on Saturday, May 13. The event will be the 8th annual “Tiger Fest,” which is organized by the Friends of Rail Road Flat School, and which each time features a different theme, such as Africa, South of the Border, and Gypsymania. For this year, the theme will be German selected by local chef for the night, Bell Francisco, who was born in Germany. The evening at the Rail Road Flat Community Hall will not only feature an Angelis performance but also a complete dinner with a hearty German flair. Doors open at 5:00 pm for a social hour at the no-host bar, followed by the performance at 6:00 pm. Dinner will be served at intermission.
The admission is $25 per person or $40 per couple (kids are discounted) and includes the concert, appetizers, dinner, and a complimentary beverage, which this year is the “Killepitsch Cocktail ,” a refreshing drink made with Killepitsch, pineapple juice, cranberry juice and soda.
Reservations can be made by phone 209-304-8932 or 209-256-7587 or by email email@example.com
by May 6. A Super Raffle will be held in order to raise additional funds for the many school Enrichment Programs that the Friends produce. If you are unable to attend, the Friends encourage you to donate a raffle item.
Angelis is an internationally acclaimed, award-winning composer and violin virtuoso who has successfully transcended artistic boundaries – her music is built on a solid classical foundation, but the inspiration flows freely from Eastern Europe, Russia, and Spain. Angelis’ brilliant compositions showcase the beauty, power, and excitement of her playing. With heels clicking and with heartwarming humility, Angelis mesmerizes her audiences. Playing drums with her will be Mark Dyken. Part of the event’s proceeds will go for the facility care of guitarist Josef Gault, husband of Angelis.
Angelis music has been featured on network TV, PBS, NPR, and during the 2000 Olympics, when world champion gymnast Kui Yuanyuan of China used Kim’s music for her floor exercise. For ten years, Angelis’ first CD, Violin Voyager, resided on the Taiwanese Billboard charts. The film Sweet Nothings features her music, which was nominated for Best Original Score by the California Independent Film Society and Best Score by the International Independent Film Tour. The 2005 release, Gypsy’s Odyssey, made Top Ten lists from Santa Cruz, CA, to Herford, Germany. In 2007, her song, “Zingaro!” won Global Rhythm Magazine’s international songwriting competition. She’s been recognized by the American Society of Composers and Publishers for her creative contributions to American music. In 2014, Kim Angelis was honored to represent the United States at Beijing World Music Week and at the Beishan World Music Festival in China.
The Friends of Rail Road Flat School operates as a non-profit organization under the auspices of the Blue Mountain Community Renewal Council. As such, all donations are tax deductible and can be sent to BMCRC at P.O. Box 223, Rail Road Flat, CA 95248.
- Are You Ready To "Stop, Drop & Mud?" Get Ready For May 13th!
Mountain Ranch, CA...What is the Stop, Drop & Mud? This race is designed to be a fitness challenge, pitting First Responders (Fire, EMS, Law Enforcement) and Military against the general public. Show us what you’ve got! We are proud to be bringing a mud run to Mountain Ranch this year — the first of its kind! We are planning on approximately 16 obstacles along the route that will range from fire fighter skills to strength and endurance tests.
Participants will start and finish at the Mountain Ranch Park in the heart of Mountain Ranch. All participants will receive a 2017 Stop, Drop & Mud shirt.
Participant are welcome to walk or run the course. All obstacles are designed to be challenging but are accomplishable by people of all ages and abilities.
Obstacle course races have become one of the most popular events in the running world in the last five years. There are races out there that have you run through mud, bounce down slides or even get splattered with paint. We wanted to have more of a fire fighter theme to this run. The Stop, Drop & Mud Firefighter Challenge has several firefighter themed obstacles that give you a glance of the life of a firefighter. You will battle through 16 different obstacles that will challenge your strength, stamina and endurance.
Runners will run the race in a wave format beginning at 10:00 a.m. and every 30 minutes thereafter. All participants in the Stop, Drop & Mud will receive the 2017 race shirt. This race is open to anyone age 13 and up.
Why Run it?
The Stop, Drop & Mud is hosted by the Central Calaveras Firefighters Association. When you run in some of the larger obstacle races you are supporting a company that is hosting the race and then donating a very small percentage of the funds to some charity. Our race is different. Every single aspect of the race is planned, constructed and organized by our Volunteer Firefighters and Association members. Countless hours are spent to get this race ready for our participants.
Financially every single dollar that is raised goes directly to supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue Protection District. It is with fundraisers like this that allow the Association to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.
When you register for the Stop, Drop & Mud you are directly supporting Central Calaveras Fire & Rescue. With this in mind we want to say thank you to everyone who has presently signed up and to those considering signing up!
Where does my race registration fee go?
All registration fees and sponsorships will go directly to purchase new SCBA’s (Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus) for the Central Calaveras Fire District. Central Fire is currently using SCBA’s made in 2002 and Federal Law prohibits the use of SCBA’s more than 15 years old. In June 2017 all 22 SCBA’s currently in use by Central Fire will no longer be usable. It is fundraising events like the Stop, Drop & Mud 5K that allow us to purchase vital equipment for the Department that its dwindling annual budget can’t cover.
The Central Calaveras Firefighters Association is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit. Our tax ID # is 45-2853418.
