2013 Pilot Club of Cullman fashion show

CULLMAN — While the event is in honor of administrative professionals, all women are invited to attend. The room and stage will be filled with decorations in red, white and blue, a tribute to our armed forces and our freedoms they protect, as well as a salute to new fashions from local merchants. Decorations are being provided on loan from St. John’s Evangelical Protestant Church and the local Veteran of Foreign Wars No. 2214.   

Many businesses show appreciation to their employees on this special day by giving them tickets to this popular event. Each ticket is $20 and can be purchased at the McGukin Civic Center in Cullman, the Cullman Museum or contact Joyce Black at 256-595-0622/256-737-0505. The last day to buy tickets is Friday, April 19. Seats will not be reserved.

The doors will open at 11 a.m. where those attending can visit 12 or more local vendors for shopping. Lunch, provided by Sweet Peppers Deli manager, Robert Brantley, will be served at 11:30 a.m. The program at noon will begin with a color guard presentation of the American Flag provided by Cullman Police Chief Kenny Culpepper. Renee Crowe will sing the nation anthem, “The Star Spangled Banner.”  Cullman Mayor Max Townson will recite “The Ragged Ole Flag.” Bobby Joe Hollis, Elvis tribute artist, will sing Elvis’ patriotic trilogy.

The fashion show is made possible by the many local merchants who provided fashions and models. Over 30 merchants have been invited to participate.

The door prizes portion of the event is a sure highlight each year. Over 100 prizes, donated by local businesses and Pilot Club members, are valued at $25 or more. There will be several grand prizes valued at $200 plus.

The Pilot Club of Cullman Inc. is dedicated to service, committed to brain health with the main focus on education and support of brain-related disorders. Profits from the show and luncheon will be used for Pilots’ community projects: The Margaret Jean Jones Center for the developmentally disabled, the Pilot Light Home for abused and neglected children, the Field of Miracles, Project Lifesaver Program, Alzheimers Support Group, and Brain Minders, a puppet show on prevention of head injuries for children.

  • WSCC farm exhibition.jpg A new exhibition at the Burrow Museum features rural farm scenes

    Dozens of prints depicting rural life are now on display at the Burrow Museum in an exhibition entitled “Days Gone By.”
    The exhibition is on loan to the museum from Grover and Irma Reeves of Vinemont, who have been collecting prints that remind them of the past and, in some cases, their own life for about 10 years. Their daughter Jeanne, who works for Cotton Incorporated, would attend conferences where one of their favorite artists would be selling prints. She would buy some of those prints and introduced her parents to his work.
