“The silky, soothing sounds of jazz and the pulsating sounds of blues and R&B drifting through the trees on a sultry summer night might make passersby think another one of Toledo’s many festivals is in progress, Saturday, August 7, 2010, as they ride past the grounds of Zeigler Habilitation Homes, Inc., 2900 N. Reynolds Road. Also showcased that weekend, area musical artists take the stage, including: saxophonist Jesse Coleman, jazz vocalist Kelly Broadway, the Kalvin Hughes jazz trio, R&B vocalist Karen Harris, Katrina Barnhill, Dorthy Grey, Curtis Jr & the Midnight Blues and others Saturday. However, the fun begins the night before and continues the next day with musical venues showcasing other area artists promising to fill the air with more music that will both soothe or stir the soul.
Come, eat, drink and listen to some of the best music in town one day, two days or all three. It will be worth your while.
“Members of the commu-
nity gathered at the historic
Civic Center Promenade, in
downtown Toledo, to enjoy
a dance competition hosted
by ASSETS Toledo.
The Friday, November 10
event, simply named “Danc-
ing Under the Stars,” featured
several ASSETS graduates
and various local dancers
who competed for a trophy.
“Well actually, Moria Evans,
my administrative assistant,
came up with the idea,” ex-
plained Olivia Holden, execu-
tive director of ASSETS To-
ledo. “She decided that we
should try something differ-
ent, because we always held
banquets in the past.
Included with the
were current ASSETS Toledo
students Shanda Gordon,
Katrina Barnhill and Dale
Barnhill. Gordon inspired the
audience through her four
solo selections that resulted
in a standing ovation. While
Ms. Barnhill reached the au-
dience through two heartfelt
saxophone selections, and
Mr. Barnhill kept the audi-
ences’ toes tapping by serv-
ing as the event DJ.

“As this weekend concluded, numerous autumn term graduations were the high point as celebrations into that next step in life. No matter how big (college/graduate school) or small (kindergarten), finishing an education is an accomplishment all its own.
On Saturday at 2 p.m., a special ceremony was taking place within the walls of the Rosary Care Center in Sylvania.
For a musical break, Katrina Barnhill, a saxophonist, played “Amazing Grace.” Weaving within the seats of the graduates while performing, she bought some of them to tears.
Finally, it was that time for the presentation of the certificates. One by one, the women came up to receive their diploma, handed out by Hayes along with a hug – and some tears – of congratulations.”
