Memorial Concert At St. Augustine Catholic Church

Thursday, April 12, 2012

"Just the Best of Friends," a concert for the benefit of the David Harr Memorial Scholarship Fund at Notre Dame High School, will be on Saturday, April 14, at 7:30 p.m. at St. Augustne Catholic Church, 1716 Anderson Pike, Signal Mountain. The cost is a donation to the David Harr Memorial Fund at Notre Dame High School. An ice cream reception will follow in the Parish Life Center.

John Harr, from Signal Mountain and St. Augustine's Catholic Church, has gathered a group of Signal Mountain musicians and singers to present a variety of hit songs and original works. Accompanying him will be Michael Huseman, Eric McLean, Joe Holmes and Robert Ligon.

David Harr, son of John and Tina Harr, died in 2004, but his memory and love of the theater continues at Notre Dame High School on the David Michael Harr Stage. Each year scholarships have been awarded to graduating seniors who are continuing in their education in the arts in college. The program is funded by programs such as this concert.

Roy Exum: The Public Defender And The Mental Health Court

I am holding in my hand a list of the names of 50 very real people who cost the taxpayers of Hamilton County a combined $3,037.090 in incarceration charges before July 2015. These people live in our county and I dare say it is not completely their fault that they were put in the county jail.
