Pine Street VOLUME 33 | ISSUE 7

Pine Street Presbyterian Church

Summertime Music by Thomas Clark-Jones, Organist/Choirmaster

With the coming of June, the choir begins its summer recess which continues through the first Sunday in September. That group will be back leading worship on Rally Day, September 8. But in the mean time, a number of special treats are planned so that music will continue to fill the church during the recess. By the time this edition of Pine Street Live gets to you, you will have heard Kathy Montalbano at the piano, and her friend, oboist Keith Kaneda offering music on June 2nd, along with Kathy’s wonderful young piano student, Bradley Fagan. Also during June, solos by Bob Wilson, John Sharpe, Ray Weatherell and Elizabeth Anderson. As July begins, we will hear from Ron Poorman; former Pine Street Quartet member, Cheryl Crider; Roger Sieber and trombonist Rachel Bani. August will bring music from pianist Louise Poorman, singer Elizabeth Atnip, the Rader Brothers Trumpet Trio and the Poorman Family Singers, along with a few friends to fill in the spaces the Poorman’s can’t cover! During several Sundays in this period, our former Organ Scholar, Chelsea Barton, now a graduate of the Eastman School of Music, will be playing the organ while Tom ClarkJones takes some R&R. Chelsea will also be opening our 2013-2014

season of Music at Pine Street with an organ recital on Friday evening, September 13. Mark the date now. Returning this summer are the hymn sings we enjoyed for several summers. This time we are using the hymnal as our resource, as in the past, but also taking the opportunity to introduce some new hymns from the hymnal sampler that is in the pew racks right now. This small volume is a sampling of the contents of the soonto-be-published hymnal Glory to God. In the coming months we will be studying this new hymnal produced by the PC(USA) to decide if it’s time to replace the fine ‘blue book’ that has served us so well for more than twenty-five years. These events begin on June 23 and will continue through August 11, giving us eight weeks of opportunity to enjoy old and new hymns together. Each of these events begins at 10:45  am and replaces the usual organ prelude during this time. If you haven’t requested a favorite hymn, there is still time to register your request at the Welcome Center. Summer at Pine Street is always a time to ‘let our hair down’ a little, and stray from strict liturgical practice in the music program. It gives our many talented musicians a chance to do something special and in so doing add their own mark of praise in our services. We hope you will enjoy the change and the variety of gifts that are brought to us during this season.

Reaching Out to the Mentally Ill by Cynthia Swanson, DDB Mental Health Outreach Counselor

On January 30, 2013, I started working for Downtown Daily Bread as a staff assistant. My duties included assisting the DDB counselor, in activities involving the “Lunch Plus” program, including showers, mail, and referrals. I also helped the DDB director as needed.

DDB is looking for someone to collect and then deliver dessert items to DDB. Our source for desserts seems to have dried up! Clients miss their sweets after their lunches. This would include cakes, pies, cookies, donuts, etc. Please call Brenda at 238-4717 for more details. Also, youth groups, Scouts, adult social groups, and others are encouraged to bake at home and deliver goodies to DDB. Thanks! Elaine. Needs: summer clothing for men and women, men’s socks and underwear.

Over the past 20 years I have held a variety of human service positions, from senior crisis intervention counselor to more recently, ten years with the Dauphin County Housing Authority. These past experiences have prepared me to perform the many varied tasks I have encountered everyday at Downtown Daily Bread. Thanks to a grant from Dauphin County Mental Health/ Intellectual Disabilities, via the federal government, I will begin fulltime in May 2013 as the Downtown Daily Bread Outreach Mental Health Coordinator. In this role, I will continue to assist the DDB counselor “in house,” and I will be “out in the field” as an outreach to those Dauphin County residents with mental health issues. These residents have often been referred to as those who have “fallen between the cracks.” In my new position, I will be developing relationships that build a sense of trust with the homeless and I will be working on connecting those individuals with mental health services. All of the outreach is done with the goal of creating greater self sufficiency for each individual. In my time with DDB, I have seen many of the “gaps” filled with a hot meal, mailing address, a shower, and someone to help with problems and concerns. Now, with two full time counselors, DDB will expand its services to meet the needs of the mentally ill who wander our city streets. I look forward to the challenge.

Austin Milletics recently participated in Math 24 Tournament at the CAIU & received a participation medal in basketball all-stars on Rutherford Team. Austin is a rising 5th-grader at TriCommunity Elementary School.

Marshall Berrier, a rising 5th-grader at E.H Phillips Elementary School received the Dauphin County Medical Society Alliance Award because he had the highest Science GPA in 4th grade. He was totally surprised!
