Rain Location: Textile Band Concert at Dunean UMC

Please help spread the word! The forecast is calling for 100% chance of heavy rain this Sunday, but we are not going to let that stop us from putting on our spring concert! We are going to move the concert indoors to the historic Dunean United Methodist Church, 31 Stevens Street, Greenville.

We have a delightful program of tunes and tales from the Upstate’s rich cultural history. As usual, we’ll be featuring a great variety of marches, rags, and novelty pieces from the golden age of the town band. This year we’re privileged to have local radio host and long-time textile band fan Mr. Charlie Munson on hand, recounting stories from the mill hill.

Admission is always FREE, but we will gladly accept donations to the Textile Heritage Society.

ACM – Dancing for Our Heroes

For the first time Friends of the Anderson County Museum (ACM) are participating in the Dancing for our Heroes event. Friends Board Member Amy Chapman will be dancing with her husband (and Anderson City Councilman) Don Chapman on Friday, April 17th at 6:30 p.m. at the Anderson Civic Center.

Amy and Don are owners of the Chapman Design Group, Inc. and have been long time supporters of the Anderson County Museum. Recently Amy and Don donated the design and project management over the ACM Store Emporium relocation. “We are not dancers but are having a great time learning to move and grove to our “Studio 54″ dance music,” said Amy Chapman. “In the end it is all about raising money for the Friends of the Anderson County Museum and Phase III of the transportation exhibit opening on November 20.”

You can support Amy and Don and the Friends of the Anderson County Museum by making a donation via the links below. Please help us reach our goal of $20,000. We have until Friday to get all donations in. Thank you so much for your support.

Is Citizen Kane the greatest film of all time? Decide for yourself.

Don’t come because Citizen Kane is a “classic.” Come because it is a spell-binding story told in unforgettable visuals. Whatever you decide – you’ll love experiencing this film with a live Chautauqua audience.

Textile Band Spring Concert at the Wyche Pavilion

Greenville Textile Heritage Band
Please join us Sunday, April 19 at 3:00pm in theWyche Pavilion 318 S. Main Street, Greenville, for a delightful program of tunes and tales from the Upstate’s rich cultural history. As usual, we’ll be featuring a great variety of marches, rags, and novelty pieces from the golden age of the town band. This year we’re privileged to have local radio host and long-time textile band fan Mr. Charlie Munson on hand, recounting stories from the mill hill.

Admission is always FREE, but we will gladly accept donations for the Textile Heritage Park project. This exciting project continues to move ahead, but we need your help to make it a reality! Launched in May 2012, an effort is underway to restore Monaghan Central Park to its former glory. The site will be renamed “Textile Heritage Park” and will include walking trails with a connection to the Swamp Rabbit Trail, historical displays, and even a good ol’-fashioned band gazebo! Yes, that’s right – a place to call “home” for our little band. Needless to say, we are excited about seeing this dream become a reality, and we hope you are too. Your tax-deductible contribution to this project will go toward the preparation of the site and construction of the gazebo. Please consider how you can support this worthy project!
