Rather than just focusing on a sport we work with children and their families throughout the entire academic year to ensure both athletic and academic progress. We are preparing to launch our academic support services in September. Our inaugural golf tournament will help support our program.

Tuskegee Airman to speak

Phone: 
(941) 955-4263
Brief Event Description: 
The Church of the Redeemer invites the community to join the parish as it honors veterans of American wars and U.S. military personnel on Veterans’ Sunday, Nov. 9. That day, retired U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. George Hardy, a Sarasota resident and member of the renowned World War II African-American fighter group known as the “Red Tails” and a Tuskegee Airman, will speak in the church's Gillespie Hall at 10:15 a.m. Redeemer's Associate Rector, the Rev. Richard C. Marsden, will preach during the 7:30, 9 and 11 a.m. masses. Fr. Marsden served in the U.S. Army from 1974-1982, as a commissioned officer, and helicopter pilot. A recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross, Hardy was first called to active duty in 1943, at the age of 18, and received aviation cadet training at the historic Tuskegee Army Air Field. After training in Tuskegee, Hardy flew 21 combat missions in a P-51 Mustang fighter over Germany during the final two months of World War II. He flew 45 additional combat missions as the co-pilot of a B-29 Superfortress bomber during the Korean War and flew 70 more missions as the pilot of an AC-119 Stinger gunship in Vietnam. In 2007, Hardy, by then retired, received an engraved invitation from President George W. Bush and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi to be a guest of honor at a formal gathering of all living Tuskegee Airmen. At that event, President Bush awarded the Airmen the Congressional Gold Medal for their service in World War II. Achieving outstanding records in their military service, the Tuskegee Airmen were nevertheless subjected to institutional racism while serving. It wasn’t till 1948 that President Harry Truman enacted Executive Order Number 9981, which mandated equal treatment and opportunity in all of the United States’ armed forces. (Click here to read Bay News 9's 2013 fascinating story about Hardy.) During all services at Redeemer on Veterans’ Sunday, veterans in the congregation will be acknowledged and thanked. Information will be shared about ways the parish can honor local veterans throughout the year by supporting Fisher House, part of the Bay Pines VA Healthcare System. Fisher House is a temporary lodging program for families of hospitalized service members and veterans who are in medical crisis. Between services, children in the will be given special opportunities to meet, thank and talk with veterans. For more information about Veterans’ Sunday or Redeemer, visit redeemersarasota.org or call 941-955-4263.

Brief Event Description: 
The Sustainability Secret is a groundbreaking feature-length environmental documentary following an intrepid filmmaker as he uncovers the most destructive industry facing the planet today – and investigates why the world's leading environmental organizations are too afraid to talk about it. As eye-opening as Blackfish and as inspiring as An Inconvenient Truth, this shocking yet humorous documentary reveals the absolutely devastating environmental impact large-scale factory farming has on our planet. We need to sell a certain number of tickets by November 6 for this to happen. You can only purchase your ticket online here: www.tugg.com/events/11486 Here are a few things that you will learn from watching this movie: Animal agriculture is responsible for 18 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, more than all transportation combined. 1,000 gallons of water are required to produce 1 gallon of milk. Animal agriculture is the leading cause of species extinction, ocean dead zones, water pollution, and habitat destruction. A farm with 2,500 dairy cows produces the same amount of waste as a city of 411,000 people. The leading causes of rainforest destruction are livestock and feedcrops. World population in 1812: 1 billion; 1912: 1.5 billion; 2012: 7 billion. 70 billion farmed animals are reared annually worldwide. More than 6 million animals are killed for food every hour.
