People and places: Messinger honored

Messinger honored
The Salisbury-Rowan Symphony Guild surprised Mary Messinger with its “Allegro” award during the Annual Meeting and Volunteer Recognition Celebration held at the Waterworks Visual Arts Center on May 21. Mary was the first Symphony Guild president in 1977 and remains a charter member. Betty Carli, Mary’s friend of 29 years, presented the tribute, including a Power Point slideshow of memorable photos.
Mary was given a book of original compositions by Albert Chaffoo, the Salisbury Symphony Orchestra’s first conductor, with a hand-penned dedication to her. As a consummate tribute, the guild membership then voted unanimously to rename the “Allegro” award the “Mary Henderson Messinger Allegro Award.”
Red Hats
Chapeau Rouge Divas, Queen Mothers Gisele Marquis and Geri Terry, met July 14 at the Village Restaurant on Second Street in Lexington for a luncheon. A variety of entrees including Greek dishes were available.
Afterward the group had a planning session and shopping.
On July 17, the Classy Red Hats met at The River Trail Mercantile Cafe for an interesting variety of food. The cafe is located at the intersection of Highways 801 and 64 near Advance. The group explored the market downstairs and the antiques upstairs.
The Queen Mother is Sara Owens.
