Warm Springs Institute Plans July 28 Ceremony July 28 is the date the Roosevelt Warm Springs Institute for Rehabilitation was officially incorporated by Franklin Delano Roosevelt in 1927, and this year July 28 will fall on Sunday. With that in mind, it's especially fitting that a com- munity-based church service that same Sunday afternoon is being planned for the Roosevelt Hall Theater beginning at 2 p.m. as part of a yearlong 75th Anniversary Celebration. "We're going to remem- ber all the good things that have taken place within these walls for more than seven decades and thank God for the thousands of opportuni- ties we've had to help others," RWSIR chaplain Jan Stewart Tolbert said in announcing the special service. "And when we're finished doing that, we're going to ask God's guidance for the next 75." According to Tolbert, music will make up a big part of the service and steps are currently underway to organ- ize and feature a community chorus made up of singers from churches throughout Meriwether County under the well respected leadership of Dale Mann, choir director at the First United Methodist Church in Manchester. "Letters and individual fliers have gone out to every church choir in the county and we are truly hoping to make a joyful noise in Roosevelt Hall this July," Tolbert added. "We think we could have a choir of any- where from 70 to 100 and that should provide a tremendous worship experience." Three rehearsals are planned for the community choir on June 23, July 14 and July 21, and any local choir member interested in taking part is asked to fill out a form on the back of the fliers and send it to Mann at the address listed. Interested choir mem- bers in the various churches can either submit these indi- vidually or as a group. For more information, call 706- 655-5207.
