    - Join us for a screening of the documentary City of Memory, directed by the acclaimed filmmaker Robert Adanto. The film will be presented Wednesday, August 31, at 6:00 PM and followed by a Q&A with the director.
    City of Memory explores the ways in which the cataclysmic events in the wake of Hurricane Katrina became imprinted on the memory of visual artists who lived through them. Robert Adanto’s film documents the unique ability of New Orleans’ artists to react when faced with catastrophe. From what looked like the death of a great American city emerged a generation of artists whose energy might prove a source of renewal for the rest of the world. The film features compelling artwork and interviews with Samuel Portera, Deborah Luster, Tameka Norris, Dawn DeDeaux, Miranda Lake, Gina Phillips, Hannah Chalew, John Woodin, Rondell Crier, Thomas Neff, Jennifer Shaw, Loren Schwerd, Lisette De Boisblanc, Kevin Kline, Zack Smith, E. Paul Julien, Elizabeth Kleinveld, Jan Gilbert, Sydney Byrd, Keith Calhoun, Jana Napoli, Rontherin Ratliff, and David Spielman.
    The screening on August 31 in Lafayette will also be a fundraiser for those affected by recent floods in the region. It is suggested that those attending the film donate $10 to the Community Foundation of Acadiana (Memo: Acadiana Disaster Response Fund), to support ongoing disaster relief efforts. "In recent days I've offered prayers for those suffering in Louisiana due to the recent flooding in the state. In making of City of Memory I've learned many things. When flood waters rise to record heights, so too does the damage, loss, and suffering. I mourn for those who lost their lives,” says filmmaker Robert Adanto. “I know that many homes full of memories have been destroyed. Photos, family heirlooms, and other keepsakes are lost. The needs will remain very great after the flood waters drop. But knowing the people of Louisiana, your generosity will be even greater. That is why I am happy to do anything I can to assist in recovery efforts. For those affected by the flood, my heart goes out to you."

    - Patriot Day falls on 11th September (also commonly known as ‘Nine-Eleven’) and is remembered globally as the anniversary of the catastrophic terrorist attacks on the USA of 11th September 2001.

    Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

    The large majority of those lost after the attacks on the Twin Towers were working at or above the points of collision; thousands of people who had gone to work that morning like every other day, found themselves suddenly stranded at the top of a burning skyscraper. A number made the choice to jump from the flaming buildings rather than wait to be caught by the flames or for the building to collapse. No one could forget the terrifying and heartbreaking stories and images captured by the news footage of the day.

    In the wake of the World Trade Center collisions, many brave men and women from the emergency services risked their lives to try to help rescue victims of the attacks, and of them 411 lost their own lives attempting to fight fires and rescue people.

    Patriot Day is recognized by US law as the official day of remembrance for these tragic events, and has been observed every year since. Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honour and commemorate those lives lost. The US President asks fellow Americans to observe a moment of silence at 8.46am (Eastern Daylight Time), the time of the first plane collision into the North Tower of the World Trade Center.

    While the events took place within the USA, the shock and grief experienced in response to the attacks was shared across the globe, and for this reason Patriot Day will be observed not only in America, but all over the world

    How your support helps St. Jude patients and kids all over the world:
    -Our research labs may not be in your community, but our discoveries are: St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
    -Thanks to committed fundraisers like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
    -Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since the hospital opened in 1962. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

  • - October 1, 1932 in the fifth inning of game three of the 1932 World Series, with a count of two balls and two strikes, Babe Ruth pointed to the center field bleachers in Chicago's Wrigley Field and followed up by hitting a soaring home run high above the very spot to which he had just gestured. Did he really call his shot? Some Disagree, some eyewitnesses and Cubs pitcher Charlie Root believe he did not. Even Babe Ruth's Daughter said that he denied it, but Babe himself also claimed he did it.
