The Lake Mahopac Rotary Club proudly  presents its 4th Annual Doo Wop Rock and Roll Oldies Show on Friday May 6th at the Mahopac High School, 421 Baldwin Place Road, Mahopac, NY starting at 7 PM.

The oldies show will be headlined by  Shirley Alston Reeves - original lead voice of The Shirelles in addition to Bob Miranda & The Happenings and a return appearance by  Larry Chance & The Earls.
The Shirelles became known throughout the world when they placed six singles in the Top Ten, and their songs have become classics and have since been covered by many artists, including the Mamas and the Papas and Dusty Springfield.  The Beatles covered “Baby, It’s You” as well as the lesser known “Boys”.
“Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, written by Carole King, was featured in the hit movie “Dirty Dancing” with Shirley on lead vocal.  “Mama Said” also led by Ms. Reeves was used in a major promotional campaign for Pepto Bismol.  She also has a Wendy’s commercial in her long list of achievements, as well as one of the first Rock and Roll Coca-Cola commercials.
1996 Rock and Roll Hall of Famer, Shirley Alston Reeves, is loved by all who have had the pleasure of meeting and hearing her golden vocals.  Her show is designed to please even the toughest musical appetites.  Shirley will  perform her other timeless classics such as “Soldier Boy”, “This is Dedicated To The One I Love”, “Foolish Little Girl”, and  “Tonight’s The Night”.
 In May 1966, The Happenings virtually exploded onto the national charts with their first single release, "See You In September".
The song quickly spiraled up the charts to become an international #1 record throughout the entire summer. Most recently, Entertainment Magazine has listed "See You In September" in the top 100 summer songs of all time! The Happenings, continuing to become a major force in the music industry, soon released their next smash hit "Go Away Little Girl" and hugely successful album "Bye, Bye, So Long, Farewell". With Bob Miranda, the lead singer of The Happenings and the voice that literally spearheaded the group into international stardom, many great releases were to follow including the classic hits, "I Got Rhythm", "My Mammy", and a virtual treasure chest of hit albums!
Rounding out the talent for the evening will be the ever popular Larry Chance and The Earls.  The Earls, originally from the Bronx, NY, present a unique combination of classic doo wop vocals and upbeat contemporary sound.  
 Whether stealing the show at the Bay Front Auditorium in Tampa, or wowing the crowd in a local night club, The Earls are a class act.  Their novel approach to the oldies of the early rock years bring back memories, while still exciting audiences of all ages who are new to the sound of The Earls.
The Earls’ fans will certainly be in anticipation for the group to sing their many hits which include “Life Is But A Dream”, “I Believe” and  “Remember Then”.
The evening of rock and roll is being sponsored by PCSB Bank, Tompkins Mahopac Bank,  in addition to Dwyer Agency, Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home, Town of Carmel Police Benevolent Association (PBA), Bucci Brothers Deli and Catering, and Mahopac News.
Tickets for the show are $35 each ($30 in advance) and can be purchased at PCSB Bank (Mahopac Branch), Bucci Brothers Deli, and Tompkins Mahopac  Bank (Mahopac branch).

The musical sounds of the 1950's and 1960's will once again be filling the auditorium of the Mahopac High School on Friday, May 8th as the Lake Mahopac Rotary Club will be presenting its 3rd Annual Rock and Roll Oldies Show starting at 7 PM.
Headlining this year's fundraising show for the Rotary Club will be Jay Siegel's Tokens, featuring the group's original lead singer - Jay Siegel.  In October of 1961, The Tokens recorded what has become one of the biggest hit songs of all time, "The Lion Sleeps Tonight".  Their hit celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2011.  "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" has enjoyed resurgence in multi-generational popularity thanks to its prominence in the long-running Broadway hit show, The Lion King.  The Tokens were inducted into the Doo Wop Hall of Fame on March 14, 2015.
Also appearing on the show will be Barbara Harris & The Toys known for their # 1 1965 song, "A Lover's Concerto".  In addition to appearances on TV's popular music shows such as "Shindig", "Hullaballo" and Dick Clark's "American Bandstand", The Toys also appeared in a movie, "It's a Bikini World", along with The Animals, The Castaways and The Gentrys.
Vito Picone & The Elegants will be making another return appearance by public demand.  The Elegants are remembered for their # 1 1958 single "Little Star", which sold more than 2.5 million copies world-wide on ABC Paramount's subsidiary label "APT".  The Elegants have appeared eight times at Radio City Music Hall, were among the initial doo wop artists to be presented at Carnegie Hall, the first doo wop group to perform at Lincoln Center, and Vito had a cameo appearance in the Oscar-winning movie, "Goodfellas" - to top the list of their many accomplishments.
The Oldies Show is being sponsored by Putnam County Savings Bank and Tompkins Mahopac Bank in addition to Joseph J. Smith Funeral Home, Inc., Elder Care Connection, Dwyer Agency, Spain Agency, Miceli Plumbing and Heating, Red Mills Convenience Center, Mahopac News, and Bucci Brothers Deli and Catering.

Virtual reality films bring new dimension to polio fight
At this year’s World Polio Day celebration in Atlanta, Rotary is harnessing the power of virtual reality technology to build empathy and inspire action in our fight to eradicate polio. Rotary, with support from the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, produced a virtual reality film that tells the story of Alokita, a young adult who suffered paralysis from polio as a child growing up in India, which has been polio-free since 2011. “When you open your eyes and see a different environment around you, you relate to the subject on a visceral, personal level,” says Vincent Vernet, direct of digital and...
Rotary Day at UN highlights role of business in building a better world
From the United Nations’ earliest days in the aftermath of World War II, the organization’s humanitarian mission has always dovetailed with Rotary’s efforts to administer aid and build peace. This year’s Rotary Day at the United Nations, 12 November, will highlight the role businesses can play in that collaboration as we work toward a more just and equitable world. The theme of this year’s gathering at UN headquarters in New York City, “Responsible Business, Resilient Societies,” recognizes Rotary’s role at the intersection of commerce and cause. As leaders in their professions and...
ShelterBox prepares for Mosul refugees
Today marked the start of the battle to take control of Mosul back from the Islamic State group, also known as ISIS. The city is the group's last major stronghold in Iraq. But humanitarian aid agencies have known about the military offensive, giving them an unusual opportunity to prepare for the crisis. "It is rare for the world to get early warning of a vast human catastrophe," says Chris Warham, chief executive of ShelterBox. "The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees issued a paper in July saying this would likely be the biggest humanitarian crisis of the year — and we better get...
Skydivers raise thousands for polio eradication
The first time Noel Jackson jumped out of a plane at 14,000 feet, it had nothing to do with raising money for polio eradication. The Michigan dentist had received a gift certificate to go skydiving from his staff because they knew he was into adventure. “It is definitely a defining moment,” says Jackson, a member of the Rotary Club of Trenton, Michigan, USA, of that first jump, done in tandem strapped to a professional skydiver. “The rush of the free fall is beyond anything I have ever experienced before. Just the speed and acceleration is unbelievable. You don’t even have time to figure out...
Rotary and ShelterBox on the ground in Haiti
Even as parts of Haiti were still recovering from a catastrophic 2010 earthquake, Hurricane Matthew tore through the impoverished island country 4 October, leaving hundreds dead and many more homeless. The Category 4 storm affected an estimated 330,000 people in Haiti, including 6,400 who were moved to temporary shelters. Extensive damage to main bridges and other transportation networks have left some areas cut off and vulnerable. Torrential rains have resulted in flooding and landslides. And contaminated water supplies threaten to lead to a surge in cholera cases and other waterborne...
