The Day the World Series Stopped

Saturday, April 11, 2015

2 pm to 3:30 pm

In October 1989 local baseball fans were living a dream. The Oakland A’s and the San Francisco Giants were facing each other in the World Series for the first time since the teams moved west! Then tragedy struck on October 17 at 5:04 pm when the Loma Prieta Earthquake turned the dream into a nightmare for Bay Area residents.

Filmmaker Jon Leonoudakis was at Candlestick Park that day. Excited for game three of the series, he had brought his camcorder to record the action and got more than he bargained for. His documentary The Day the World Series Stopped features original video and photography shot from October 17 to October 27, 1989, mixed with archival news footage and photographs to present a unique and personal perspective on both the World Series and the Loma Prieta Earthquake.

Please join us for a showing of the documentary as well as a chance to share your personal story about that day.

Jon Leonoudakis, a lifelong Giants fan, was inside Candlestick Park waiting for the start of Game 3 of the 1989 World Series when the Loma Prieta Earthquake struck, twenty-nine minutes before game time.  A filmmaker by profession, Jon had arrived with a VHS camcorder and a Canon still camera to record his first World Series game.  He left with an account of the moments when the earthquake struck at Candlestick.

This film is a mix of archival news clips with Leonoudakis's personal footage and photographs, and presents a unique and personal perspective of the events during and after the earthquake.

This free screening will be held in the Dublin Library Community Room, and will be followed by a question-and-answer session with Mr. Leonoudakis.

ESTATE AND TRUST PLANNING

Fremont Main Library – Fukaya Meeting Room

Monday, April 13, 2015, 7 – 8:30 p.m.

Meet James J. Phillips, Probate and Estate Planning Attorney serving Alameda County, who will speak on estate planning, trusts, probate, and related tax matters.

James Phillips is a Certified Specialist in estate planning, probate, and trust law with over 30 years of experience; with a Juris Doctor from Hastings College and a “highest rating (legal ability and ethical standards) of professional excellence” by Martindale-Hubbell. He is included annually in the Northern California Super Lawyers since its inception. His web page is www.jamesjphillips.com.

Estate planning is a process! If your estate is small, you may simply focus on who will receive your assets after your death, and who should manage your estate, pay your last debts and handle the distribution of your assets; and who will manage your medical and financial affairs if you become ill. If your estate is large, there are various ways of preserving your assets for your beneficiaries and reducing or postponing the amount of estate tax.

This free seminar is sponsored by the Alameda County Library and the Fremont Chamber of Commerce.  No reservations are required.

Union City Library's Wednesday Night Music Series presents:

Redwood Tango Ensemble

The Redwood Tango Ensemble is an energetic tango ensemble from San Francisco. The ensemble plays traditional Argentine tango with transcriptions and arrangements of the classic "golden era" orchestras of the 30's, 40's and 50's, primarily working in the styles of Troilo, Di Sarli, D'Arienzo, and Pugliese. The group also ventures into the concert pieces and nuevo-tango of Astor Piazzolla, Sexteto Mayor, and modern ensembles around the world. Their signature is a growing repertoire of original compositions written in the style of the classic orchestras, entirely danceable, but singular and alive. 

    Redwood Tango was the featured orchestra for Chicago Tango Week 2013, and has performed for milongas in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Portland, Chicago, Montreal, London, NYC, and dozens of cities in between.  The ensemble keeps an active presence in the bay area tango scene, and also gives musicality workshops and clinics to dance communities and musicians interested in getting deeper into the style and substance of the music.  Redwood Tango has released and toured to support two albums: Joaquin (2012), and Cayetano (2013), with a new album of original tangos set to be released in mid 2015.

Line Dancing is great fun for the novice as well as the experienced because there is a wide range of dances from the simple 18-count Electric Slide to complex 96-count dances.  In this hour, we will begin to explore this world-wide movement, learning steps to music that ranges from country and pop to Latin and the ballroom.  Learn a way to stay fit that is also lots of fun!

 

After a professional career as a ballet dancer in New York City and Salzburg, Austria, Rosalie Woergoetter returned to the U.S.  Seeking a new (and easier) form of dance, she soon discovered line dancing.  In 2009, Rosalie started teaching it for senior citizens at Chabot College.  Her students have performed at many local events.
