Official Handy Sunday Ceremony at the Gym!!!

Starts: 6:30 PM
Location: Burrell Slater Gymnasium, 610 W. College St., Florence, AL
    According to the forecast, it's gonna rain, children, it's gonna rain.  So we better get ready and bear this in mind. That's why we're moving Sunday Ceremony from Lewis Field to the Coach Harvest Mitchell Gymnasium (at Burrell Slater School).  There will be plenty of chairs already set up, and we'll still have the food trucks on site. After a prayer by the Reverend Grandville Anderson, Pastor of the Greater St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church (where the Father of the Blues William Christopher Handy and his family attended services), we'll enjoy music by Trumpeteer Kimble Funchess, the Quad Cities Mass Choir directed by Aaron Freeman, and two of WZZA Radio's own:  the Reverend Shane Rainer and Fresh Wind and the Reverend Jerry Reeves, along with his Friends!
