Webster community mailbag

10 Aug

Each one of these notices, which I received via email this week, is worthy of a blog all to itself. But I thought I’d toss them in all together just to get them out there as soon as possible.

The Rochester Garlic Festival — formerly the Webster Garlic Festival — will be returning to the Webster Recreation Center in September. The event took last year off to regroup and is coming back bigger and stronger than ever. Organizers tell me there will be more than 100 vendors of all kinds (not just garlic), food trucks, beer, a children’s area, and an awesome entertainment lineup.

But they need your help to make sure it’s awesome. There are a lot of jobs, big and little, you can help with. Most won’t take much time, and then you can enjoy the festival! Click here for more information about what jobs are available and to sign up.

Are you a lady who loves to sing? Read on for a great opportunity.

Rochester Rhapsody, the Rochester chapter of Harmony, Incorporated, an international organization of female a cappella singers specializing in the barbershop harmony style, will spread their love of music during the summer season with open rehearsals for women of all ages.

Female guests can attend Rochester Rhapsody’s “Summer SINGsation” at Harmony House, 58 E. Main St. in the Village of Webster on August 19 and 26 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. during their open rehearsals. The two-week event will culminate in a concert performed for the local community on August 26 at Harmony House at 7:30 p.m. The event is free but donations for the concert are gratefully accepted.

Women of all ages can participate in vocal warm-ups and exercises in a relaxed environment, learn new songs, meet with other women, and enjoy an evening of singing and camaraderie. The chorus is currently working on a variety of songs, learning new music, and getting ready for an International Competition. Even if you’ve never sung a cappella or haven’t sung in a while, you’re welcome to join the fun.

One of our area’s best-known and favorite restaurant chains is marking a pretty big anniversary.

Family-owned Charlie’s Restaurants is turning 50 years old this year, and is inviting the whole community to help them celebrate. They’re basically throwing a big party on Sunday, August 25, with live music, a “throwback” food menu, and fun and games for the whole family.

It all will take place at Charlie’s Webster location,  1843 Empire Blvd.; the Ontario location will actually be closed for the day so the staff there can enjoy the festivities in Webster.

For a look at Charlie’s full menu, visit charliesrestaurants.com.
