May 10-11, 2016 – The Hoppers

HoppersThis multi-award winning family group has been singing to global audiences for over 55 years with appearances ranging from presidential religious inaugural ceremonies and New York’s Carnegie Hall to singing conventions and churches. They have performed throughout the United States as well as in Israel, Europe, and Africa. Their unique blend of harmonies and song choices have created a legacy of musical excellence. Known as America’s Favorite Family of Gospel Music, they are favorites on the Gaither Homecoming videos and tours, and their recordings frequently land at the top of the charts. Comprised of family members Claude & Connie, son Mike Hopper, and son Dean and his wife, Kim and their daughter Carly, The Hoppers were formed in 1957 in the rural-farm town of Madison, NC, and have grown continuously for decades, touching countless lives around the world. Kim is particularly noted for the excitement she brings to any live performance – her unmistakable, rafter-ringing soprano vocals are not to be missed!

May 14, 2016 – Free Memory Screening

What is memory screening? It’s a wellness tool to identify possible changes in memory and cognition. This information is used as a baseline of where a person is today and to monitor changes in the future. This is not a diagnostic tool. Cathy Kehoe, the Dementia Care Specialist for Jefferson County, can complete a short memory screen for you at no cost. We provide you with the results immediately, and you can share them with your physician or keep them for future comparison. If potential changes are detected, it’s very important to follow-up with your physician or a memory diagnostic clinic for further evaluation. Upon request, we can fax the results to your physician. Please call the library at 920-674-7733 ext. 3 to reserve your half hour time slot.

9:30am – noon

Jefferson – Jefferson Public Library – 321 South Main Street
