Cassina’s tenth Annual Garden Walk again celebrates the horticultural beauty of the St. Simons coastal area. It offers an opportunity for visitors to explore and enjoy a seldom seen group of six of the Island’s most inspiring private gardens. The name of the tour was selected to recognize St. Simons Island’s cultural heritage by spotlighting the tabby slave cabins, circa early 1800’s, on historic Gascoigne Bluff and their magnificent setting among the ancient oaks covered with tillandsia, or Spanish moss. The cabins are maintained by Cassina Garden Club, Inc. Proceeds from the Tabby & Tillandsia Garden Walk are used for the preservation and maintenance of our historic tabby cabins and the surrounding grounds.
Our Special Interest Stop will again be ACE Garden Center, which will have plants featured on the Garden Walk and other great gardening ideas.

Advance tickets may be purchased at ACE Garden Center, G.J. Ford Bookshop and St. Simons Drug Store, on St Simons Island, or Cunningham Jewelers and Gentlemen’s Outfitters, in Brunswick.garden_walk_0

 

Golden Isles Prep Rally: Saturday, May 21st, 2016 – 10:00am – 2:00pm

A fun and informative community preparedness rally to be held at Mary Ross Waterfront Park Brunswick, Ga. This exciting and important event will be free to the entire community. It will focus on disaster awareness and preparedness with the spotlight on hurricane and coastal flooding. It is also in conjunction with National Safe Boating Week. The Prep Rally will be held this summer right before hurricane season begins. Learn how to pack an evacuation bag for the whole family…including your pets! Find out where to go and how to return after an evacuation.

We have all heard folks say they are not sure what they should do or where they should go in case an evacuation is ordered for our coastal region. This fun and unique tent event is going to directly address those questions and fears that everyone has, specifically focusing on our immediate coastal area and putting minds at ease. We believe that after attending this first of its kind outreach, local folks will better understand how to establish an individual and family disaster plan for the evacuation of loved ones.Golden Isles Prep Rally

 

Sounds by the Sea Featuring The Phil Morrison-Ken Trimmins Jazz Collective: Sunday, May 22nd, 2016 – 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Golden Isles Arts & Humanities is kicking off its great summertime concert series, Sounds by the Sea, on Sunday, May 22 with The Phil Morrison-Ken Trimmins Jazz Collective. The music starts at 7 p.m. by the sea at Neptune Park, St Simons Island.

“We are thrilled to have The Phil Morrison-Ken Trimmins Jazz Collective as our opening concert headliner,” says Heather Heath, executive director, Golden Isles Arts & Humanities. “They are perennial audience favorites and created the amazing Tribute to Duke Ellington concert that packed the Ritz Theatre in last year. Concert goers are in for a real treat.”

Morrison, who calls the Golden Isles home, is a well-known Boston-born bassist and composer. He has worked with such major artists as Dizzy Gillespie, bluesman T-Bone Walker, vocalist Gloria Lynne and French horn player John Clark. He subsequently joined the trio of pianist/singer Freddy Cole, Nat’s youngest brother, with whom he worked for about five years. During that time, he frequently toured Brazil. That Brazilian influence is reflected in many of Phil’s original compositions.

Trimmins completed a distinguished career with the United States Air Force Band program, which included serving as director of operations for nine touring ensembles and as musical director and bandleader for three Air Force jazz bands. He has a bachelor’s degree in music education from Valdosta State University, a master’s degree in trumpet performance from Mercer University and a doctorate in classical trumpet performance from Florida State University. He is currently the concert band director and an assistant professor at Albany State University.

Sounds by the Sea is presented by Golden Isles Arts and Humanities at Neptune Park on St. Simons Island directly behind the Casino building. The concerts are held on select Sundays and take place from 7-9 p.m. and guests are encouraged to bring a picnic supper and a lawn chair or blanket to relax on.
