THE BEACON 9 www.coshoctonbeacontoday.com JANUARY 17, 2018 Roscoe UMC plans special event in honor of Black History month COSHOCTON - In observance of Black History month, Roscoe UMC will hold a special service/presentation on Sunday, Feb. 11 at 3 p.m. in the sanctuary. Soprano Jessica Crowell, Malone University 2016 grad- uate, and MU senior mezzo-soprano, Desirée Meschell Hargrave, will share a 20 minute opera, “Beneath Sus- picion,” written by MU music prof., Dr. Jesse Ayers. MU graduate pianist, Jessica Kapraly, and violinist, Cynthia Noble, will accompany the singers. “Beneath Suspicion” is based on a true, little-known story of two daring, American women who played on prevailing gender and racial stereotypes to fi ght slavery by spying for the Union during the Civil War. Elizabeth Van Lew, a passionate abolitionist known around Richmond as “Crazy Bet,” is the middle-aged daughter of a recently deceased, wealthy Richmond slave owner. Upon her father’s death, she frees her fami- ly’s slaves, including a young household servant named Mary. Bet, recognizing Mary’s extreme intelligence, sends her to Philadelphia to a Quaker School to be edu- cated, after which Mary returns to Richmond to work in the Van Lew home as a free woman. Mary has a photographic memory. She can memorize documents verbatim in one quick reading as well as repeat lengthy conversations word for word. As the war breaks out, Mary is in her early 20s, Bet, her 40s. Th ough Richmond is the capital of the Confederacy, about half of its inhabitants are Union sympathizers. Bet, a fi re- brand, uses her contacts to set up a spy ring to report Confederate movements to the Union military. Her information is so reliable, her coded messages go directly General Ulysses S. Grant. Th is works imagines Staff | Beacon Happy Birthday to you in Heaven In Loving Memory of COSHOCTON – Th e New Year Small Business Kickoff Show will be held from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 21, at Hopewell School. “I know a lot of people have heard about some of these businesses, but they may not know all they have to off er,” said Jacob Bair, organizer of the event. Browse items off ered by many diff erent vendors and crafters, shop and sample some of their products. More than 20 vendors have signed up so far including Tupper- ware, Scentsy, Perfectly Posh, LulaRue, Rusty Olde Crow, and many others. “It’s wintertime, so there’s not too much to do in the cold,” said Bair. “We’re going to have food served, so we’re going to let people shop and have something to eat, maybe play some games, and raffl e off some gift cards.” Bair is hoping a church group or 4-H group will step forward and help pass out food the day of the event. “We’re planning to do another one in March if this one goes well,” said Bair. “So we’re hoping it goes over well with a nice turn-out.” Robert A.
