NM Historical Society Thanks Community with Southern Gospel Program


On Monday December 9 the North Manchester Historical Society will present a program of Southern Gospel music by Bound 4 Glory.   The Historical Society has arranged the program to thank the community for its support, and especially to thank Timbercrest Retirement Community for hosting them each month.


Many North Manchester residents will recognize Bound 4 Glory for their performances the past five years at the annual Camp Mack festival.  For the December Historical Society program, they will include Christmas music, songs they only get to perform during the holiday season.


Bound 4 Glory is a men’s Southern Gospel quartet blending tight harmonies with a country flavor.  The members include Jerry Brennaman, Ray Imhoff, Randee Robinson, and Rich Flickinger of the Agape Church of the Brethren in Fort Wayne.  Fourteen years ago, Ray fulfilled a long-time desire to create a quartet.  They started practicing together, and now have shared their music with many area organizations, churches and retirement communities in Indiana, Ohio, Michigan and Iowa.  They recorded a CD “I Believe” which is available from the Agape COB.


The program will be held in the Assembly Room of Timbercrest Senior Living Community, 2201 East Street, at 6:40 p.m.  There is no cost for the program, which is free to the public.  All are welcome.  While many attend only the program, the public is also invited to come to the Assembly Room at 6 p.m. for a meal prior to the presentation.  For those who wish to attend the dinner, reservations must be made no later than noon on Friday, December 6.  The cost of the meal is $8.50.  Reservations may be made by calling Mary at 260-982-1813, Evelyn at 260-982-6777, or the Center for History at 260-982-0672.
