(back) Subject: Dale Earnhardt's Funeral--off topic From: <RMB10@aol.com> Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2001 08:01:55 EST   Speaking as a Funeral Director in Charlotte, NC, there has been a lot of publicity of Dale's funeral. Dale was a member of St. Mark's Lutheran Church, Mooresville, NC, (home of a 2 man. Allen) where his "real" funeral =   was held very quietly with burial following in Kannapolis, NC. Local arrangements were handled by Raymer Funeral Home in Huntersville, NC. The =   memorial service held at Calvary Church in Charlotte, was supposed to have over 6,000 in attendance, but ended up having just = over 3,000. As I was told by a Calvary staff member following the service, the organ = was not used, nor was the organ console visible. The music was done by Dale Earnhardt's friends, the group Alabama. Their keyboard player accompanied =   Calvary's choir director singing "How Great Thou Art." The whole service = was just about 20 minutes long. (The way we funeral directors like = them....short and sweet.) We have register books out at our four chapels around Charlotte....at our main location, 17 pages have already been signed. This morning, I am = burying Dale Earnhardt's cousin, so who knows who will show up.....   Monty Bennett Funeral Director-McEwen Funeral Service, Charlotte, NC

(back) Subject: OHS Convention Itinerary From: "William T. Van Pelt III" <wvanpelt@erols.com> Date: Sat, 24 Feb 2001 22:34:40 -0500   The itinerary for the 2001 OHS National Convention in North Carolina June 21-28 is now posted on the OHS website http://www.organsociety.com. Click on "Conventions" at the left, then click on "Convention at a Glance."   There is no registration form available, as yet, because we haven't firmed up the registration fee. Looks like a little more than I thought a week ago, but to have all dinners; lunches (except one); 33 organ recitals; admissions to Biltmore, Chinquapenn Plantation, Reynolda House, and all other places; and motor coach transportation for 8 days and to be with pleasant, like-minded people (mostly), is well worth about $620.   Hotel information is available on the website, too.   Bill
