Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers in Trumansburg, N.Y.
Sunday March 29th, 2015 at 4:00 p.m.
First Presbyterian Church of Ulysses
69 East Main St.
Featuring Sally Ramirez, soprano

The Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers (DCJS) is a community chorus named in honor of civil rights pioneer Dorothy Cotton,
a resident of Ithaca, New York, who served as education director for the Southern Christian Leadership Conference alongside
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  She continues today to spread her message of freedom and hope to people around the world through song.
Established in 2010, the Dorothy Cotton Jubilee Singers is patterned after the famous Fisk Jubilee Singers, a group of ex-slaves who
were students at the Fisk School of Nashville, Tennessee, and knew the traditional slave songs of their people. Fisk School was
established in 1866 for the education of the recently freed African-Americans---barely six months after the end of the Civil War.
The Negro Spiritual has an honored place in American History as the voice of a uniquely American experience---the perseverance and
triumph of an oppressed people with an indomitable spirit, who had an incomparable ability to sing through their anguish with steadfast
faith in a God above, and with a joy and sorrow unparalleled in our history. It is the mission of DCJS to raise our voices once again
in these words and harmonies and to reach for these redemptive powers in our own times.
The concert will feature guest artist, Sally Ramirez . Sally is a singer, actress, writer, producer, teacher, and vocal coach whose
music covers the range from jazz to folk. She has performed in musical theater, operettas, and jazz venues throughout the country.
Sally has performed on stage, on television (“The Young and the Restless", PBS' "American Family"), and on radio, and she has
performed solo and back up on the CDs of many artists in Los Angeles, Minneapolis, and Ithaca.
The concert will also feature Trumansburg’s own, Geoff Peterson, in the moving spiritual Deep River
The concert is sponsored by the:
Tompkins County Tourism Program - Community Grant Celebration
The Concert is Free and Open to the Public

A Message from the Trumansburg Food Pantry
Dear Community Members,
The Trumansburg Food Pantry is fortunate to have the continued support of such a
wonderful community. During the past year our community helped many families
through difficult times. Many of our clients expressed their thanks and said that by
using the food pantry they were able to stretch their income to pay other bills such as
heat and medical expenses. One other client was grateful to the pantry because she
was unable to work since finding daycare for her special needs child was difficult. Our
distributions helped around 66 senior citizens on a fixed income during 2014. This
great community helped 269 households and 29 students from the Trumansburg
School District with their food security needs during 2014. The Food Pantry Steering
Committee cannot thank you enough.
March and April are the months the Trumansburg Food Pantry holds its annual fund
raising campaign. Last year in 2014, during the March and April campaign, our great
community raised $15,849 in cash donations and collected 4,728 food items for use in
our pantry. This fundraiser helped cover 25% of our expenses for quality food choices.
We are hoping to have the same results this year.
If you are asked to donate canned food to any organization during March or April,
please open your cupboards and give generously. You can also bring your nonperishable
food donations directly to your church or the collection box at Shursave. If
you would like to make a cash donation you may make a donation to the United Way
in support of the Trumansburg Food Pantry or mail your tax deduction donation to:
Trumansburg Food Pantry
PO Box 162
Trumansburg, NY 14886
Thank you and God bless you,
Anne Haus, Coordinator, Trumansburg Food Pantry

Founded in 1988 by Sara Pines, MSW, Ph.D., Friendship Donations Network’s mission is to rescue fresh nutritious food from stores and farms that would otherwise be thrown away and redistribute it to neighbors in need. This is accomplished by an extensive network of volunteers who pick up donations of mostly perishable excess and day-old food and deliver them to pantries and programs that serve in excess of 2,100 people weekly. We divert over 500,000 lbs. of good food from the landfill each year!Find us on Facebook: facebook.com/ FriendshipDonations
