Barbershop group to perform at library

The Phoenix Public Library will present Roger Wells and members of the Barbershop Harmony Society Thursday, March 21 at 7 p.m.

Wells will give a short presentation on the art of singing in barbershop harmony followed by a 15-minute performance by the quartet. Wells will be available for questions after the presentation. Light refreshments will be served.

The library will hold a presentation by Toni McEniry from ARISE Thursday, March 28 at 2 p.m. in the Century Club Room.

ARISE has received funding from Central New York Affiliate Susan G. Komen for the Cure to promote education and awareness on breast cancer.

The presentation by McEniry focuses on self-breast examinations, clinical examinations and mammograms. The goal is to reach underserved women and uninsured women, a population that is growing as the economic recession continues.

This program from ARISE is to insure that more women receive preventive screening and follow-up breast health care, when needed, by providing one on one support to overcome barriers.

Those seeking more information may call McEniry at 671-2991.

These programs are free and open to the public. Those seeking more information may call the library at 695-4355.
