irst Presbyterian Church of Bainbridge is hosting a special “Music in the Woods” event this Sunday, November 24th at 4:00 p.m., followed immediately by a reception in the Fellowship Hall. An excerpt from the bulletin for the program is included below – with special dedication given to Johnny Grimsley.
2019 Music Program Dedication in Memory of Johnny Grimsley
From its conception each performance in the Music in the Woods series has been dedicated in honor or as a memorial to an individual having contributed to the musical or other enrichment of Decatur County. It is only appropriate that today’s musical performance is dedicated in honor of Bainbridge native and long-time local pharmacist Johnny Grimsley. The love of music, family, his church and the community were inseparable. While attending Music in the Woods performances Johnny would always remind the young musicians and faculty members from the College of Music of his attendance at the summer music camp at Florida State during his high school days. While the practice of pharmacy became his profession, his love and passion for music never wavered. Today’s performance of the Irish ballad of the young man upon leaving home for the first time, Danny Boy, is in honor of a friend to us all.
Please join us for this special day.
