Foley High School Jazz Band

 The Foley High School Jazz Band was our special guests last week.  They blessed us with a few songs from their spring performance. The Jazz band is a small group of musicians from Foley High School that are led by Mr. David Samuel, assistant band director at Foley.  The group that performed for us this week consisted of 22 students.  

They will be performing along with Foley’s other ensembles in both the middle and high school on May 2 beginning at 6:00 pm in the Foley Middle School Gymnasium.  If you have never heard or attended a concert from Foley band, you are missing out.  Some of the exciting groups you will get to hear are:

Foley Symphonic Band

Foley Steel Drums Band

Foley Middle School band

Be sure to come support our local musicians on May 2 at 6:00 pm.

State of the City

 

Mayor John Koniar

This weeks guest will be Foley Mayor John Koniar.  He will update the Foley Rotary Club with the State of the City

John Koniar served as a city council member from 1980 until 2006 when he was appointed to serve out Timothy Russell’s term of office as mayor. He was re-elected in 2008, 2012 and 2016 as the mayor of the City of Foley. He is past president of the Foley Optimist Club and past chairman of the South Baldwin Chamber of Commerce. He currently serves as board member on the Baldwin County Board of Mental Health, The Utilities Board of the City of Foley, and Coastal Resiliency Coalition. Mayor Koniar has a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Management from the University of Alabama and is retired from industry. He is married, has three children and five grandchildren.

 

This is an exciting but turbulent time for Foley.  There are many parts moving simultaneously and with the recent growth and now the addition of OWA.  With the guidance from our Mayor and City Council we are ready to blossom into much more than the small town most grew up knowing.  Foley Rotary looks forward to hearing what Mayor Koniar sees for Foley as we grow.
