    - Special Exhibit: Billy Graham – An Extraordinary Journey
    On February 21, 2018, Billy Graham’s hope and greatest longing was realized as he entered heaven. Today, he is in the presence of his Savior, Jesus Christ. God worked through Mr. Graham’s death much like He did through his life, using the events surrounding his passing to open hearts and change lives for eternity through the power of the Gospel. This special exhibit shares the remarkable impact of the events commemorating Billy Graham’s life and ministry – and demonstrates how God is continuing this legacy of evangelism to “bring salvation to the ends of the earth” (Acts 13:47).
    Browse fascinating photos, never-before-seen memorabilia, and testimonies from those who have been impacted since Billy Graham’s passing.
    Located in the lobby of the Billy Graham Library, this exhibit is free to the public and no pre-registration is required. For more information, please call 704-401-3200.

  • | 8:00pm - 9:15pm | Arts and Entertainment, Tyris live jazz series, live jazz, Indian Trail, NC
    - Celebrating your favorite hits of yesterday and today, with a twist that only, Jazz can bring!

    Improvisation has always been part of the Jazz movement from Bebop to Today's Smooth Jazz. As a young jazz musician growing up in Chicago, I often heard of musicians like Charlie Parker and Thelonious Monk Jammin in small venues where the music changed and evolved with each bar.

    I remember playing gigs throughout India, Singapore, and other countries, totally approaching the music differently each night. It is my goal to bring back the emotion and movement of music that is both spontaneous and improvised - being up close and personal.

    These small live concerts will feature myself along with my band and guest artist. There are limited seats due to space constraints, so please book your tickets now

Delivered free of charge every December to millions of homes across America, our full-sized, full-color calendar is a time-tested and beloved tool for helping families stay organized. The large date blocks are not only loaded with lots of nearby events and fun things to do, there's plenty of room for you to record your own family's important events like birthdays, anniversaries, parties -- anything you have planned -- so everybody in the house can see them whenever they go to the fridge, out the front door, or wherever you choose to display it.

But there's more! Every calendar is full of coupons from popular local merchants, so you can save money while supporting small businesses right in your hometown.

And don't miss our beautiful full-color photography! Every month you'll recognize a new photo from someplace close to home, submitted to us by a local photographer. If you'd like to have your own hometown photos included in our calendar, please contact your local publisher for more information.

We truly believe it's better to "keep it local". From coast to coast and border to border, our network of franchisees work with organizations and merchants right in their community to make sure you get the information and savings you care about.
