Golden Gates performance for the Southwest Cabarrus Rotary Club

Join the Southwest Cabarrus Rotary Club for a special presentation on Tuesday, Feb. 3, 2015 at the West Cabarrus YMCA as we welcome Golden Gates. As this is a catered lunch, please let us know if you would like to join us by Monday at noon. Cost of lunch is $10 per person.

Golden Gates offers audiences an entertaining and authentic glimpse into Old Russia through music, song, and dance. The repertoire is centered around masterpieces of Russian folklore and represents the diversity of the culture, ranging from gently humorous songs, to elaborate lyrical suites, to pulsating dance numbers.

The program is broad and varied, with something to appeal to everyone, including audience participation though clapping and learning Russian songs and words. Lilting balalaikas, dynamic bayan accordion, unique trashotky and loshky, humorous dances, and superb vocals combine for an exhilarating and educational performance for audiences of all ages.

RI President Gary C.K. Huang chose Light Up Rotary as his theme for 2014-15. Huang is urging club members to Light Up Rotary by hosting a Rotary Day in their community, continuing our fight against polio, and increasing club membership. “Light Up Rotary is more than our theme. It is how we make a difference — every day, in every club, and every country we serve.”

Today, October 15, 2013, we had an incredible presentation by Barbi Jones from United Way of the Carolinas. She told us about the day in the life of the recipients of their money. The day was June 28, 2013 – homebound seniors were fed and celebrated birthdays from Cabarrus Meals on Wheels, the American Red Cross was helping those suffering from flood damage, children went to camp at the Boys and Girls Club and the YMCA and CVAN was sheltering women and children… and the rest of our lives went on. One day you may be in need of the services provided by the United Way and their 24 supported agencies… it’s good to know they are there when we need them. Thankfully, they were there on June 28th for all of these people and to think that is only one out of 365 days a year! They can only maintain these services with the help of our community! Keep up the great work Jordan, Katie and Barbi! https://www.facebook.com/uwcccabarrus
