Central Pennsylvania Musicians’ Association (AFM Local 660) to Celebrate 100th Year in January


Central Pennsylvania Musicians’ Association (AFM Local 660) 

to Celebrate 100th Year in January

STATE COLLEGE, PA -- The Central Pennsylvania Musicians’ Association (American Federation of Musicians Local 660), headquartered in State College, PA, will celebrate its 100th anniversary on January 19, 2013. A luncheon will be held at the University Club, 331 West College Ave., from 12 to 3 PM, including live music and a recognition ceremony. Memorabilia from the union’s history will be on display, and previous members who wish to attend should contact Debbie Trudeau at 814-237-0979 or trumusic@comcast.net.

 

To mark the anniversary, the local is encouraging new memberships by waiving the initiation fees through March of 2013.  New members or returning members who join by December 31 may attend and bring a guest to the celebration on January 19.  “This is a seventy-five-dollar savings,” says Debbie Trudeau, AFM 660 treasurer and violinist with several local classical ensembles. “It’s a great opportunity for those who have been thinking of getting involved or rejoining.”

“I believe in music,” says Marilyn Haugh, avid supporter of several Central PA musical groups and AFM member since 2007. “I’m looking forward to celebrating the local’s anniversary in January. I’m dedicated to musicians and feel that they should be paid well.” Marilyn has been a close observer of Local 660 as the wife of the late Hubert Haugh, a member and officer from 1976-2007.  She also served on the board in her husband’s stead.

Painter and printmaker Berta Golahny art exhibition at Foxdale Community Art Gallery



The painter and printmaker Berta Golahny (Detroit 1925-Newton 2005) created images

in response to the human condition, and expressive of tragedy, joy, and wonder. This selection

of paintings and prints includes works from 1950 to 1995. Many of the works belong to series,

often developed over decades: Children at the Fair; Landscape of Man; Psalms; Genesis; and

Cosmos. Consistently these works investigate the place of humanity in the earthly and cosmic

worlds.


Born in Detroit, Golahny attended the prestigious Cass Technical High School, a

training ground for artists as well as engineers. She studied at the Art Students League in New

York City, The Art Institute of Chicago (B.F.A.) and the University of Iowa (M.F.A.). She
