|Todd Schafer's Crooner Christmas|
A wonderful way to get yourself in the spirit of Christmas would be by attending A Crooner Christmas VII at the Alexandria Community Center from 3-5 p.m. on Sunday, December 16. Todd Schafer with Todd Whitford and Jerry Moore will be performing Christmas songs and songs that were sung by your favorite crooners in years past. Plus there will be a surprise vocal guest and a special tribute to Schafer's father. Admission is free but donations will be accepted to be distributed to needy individuals and families in the area.
Todd Schafer has strong ties to our community through his grandparents John and Nellie Keith who were lifetime residents in Pendleton County. His parents, Lee and Joyce Schafer, also resided in Pendleton and Campbell counties.
While growing up Todd performed for many churches in the area as well as senior events. In the late 70s and early 80s he performed with Lawrence Welk on several occasions. He has performed for UK, U of L, and Xavier. For nearly a decade he has been dealing with congestive heart failure and cardiomyopathy. He lives with a 17 to 20% ejection factor and yet God allows him to perform this program year after year. Come hear your favorite crooner tunes and get your Christmas spirit brightened with a beautiful rendition of "Let It Snow" and "White Christmas."
