Wednesday June 22 2011-Kingwood, WV-PRESTON COUNIY IOURNAL-7 Saturday performance planned during Rowlesburg WWll events submitted by Timothy Weaver You don't want to miss this! At 2 p.m., on Saturday, June 25, the Andrews Sisters will appear in Rowlesburg in the form of the Vinateiri Sisters of Pennsyl- vania (yes, they are related tu Adam Vinatieri, the NFL star kicker). During a time when teenag- ers were doing the jitterbug and Uncle Sam was asking young men to enlist, the Andrews Sis- ters were America's most popu- lar female singing group, the song birds of WWII. They earned nine gold records, recorded over 700 songs, sold more than 90 million records and had more than 100 songs on top 30 Billboard charts. Some of their hits included: "Beer Barrel Polka" (Roll out the Barrel), "Bei Mir Bist Du Schon" (means that you're grand), "Don't Fence Me In" and "Winter Wonderland." The Vinateiri Sisters are a trio of real-life sisters - Ann, Carol, and Laura - who imperson- ate the Andrews Sisters. These sisters have been singing with each other for as long as they can remember, but have started performing together profession- ally in the last few years. Growing up, the music of the 1940s and war era was played in their home and quickly be- came a favorite genre. Ann, Carol, and Laura took on the Andrews Sisters identity as their own by performing in a usa show at a WWI1 event last summer at Eckley Miners Vil- lage in Pennsylvania. Since then, they have expand- ed their performance venues to reach people in the surrounding regions of their town, Hazleton, PA. Ann Vinatieri Bauder, the old- est of the three sisters, graduat - ed from Bloomsburg University with a major in History. With this knowledge, she has been able to volunteer a considerable amount cf her time to Eckley Miners Village and the Hazle- ton Historical Society Museum. Ann now works for Catholic Social Services, serving through the Parent Child Home Program in the Hazleton area. Carol Vinatieri, the middle sister, is currently finishing her second year of college at The King's College in Manhattan and is pursuing a major in Po- litical Science. Laura Vinatieri, the youngest of the sisters, just graduated from high school and plans to attend Moravian College in Bethlehem, PA where she will major in Voice Performance. Ann's husband, Michael, who aids his wife and sisters-in-law with the sound system and adds hi,s wit and Charm to make the program complete, joins the Vi- natieri Sisters. Ann, Carol, and Laura enjoy performing for the generation that enjoyed this music first. They share their music in appre- ciation for the people who de- voted their service to this coun- try during that time of war, both overseas and on the home front. The "V" Sisters also perform to inspire the current generation to look back on history in grati- tude and enjoy this wonderful genre of music. The event is scheduled for the Reenactment Field next to the Rowlesburg Community Park. Plenty of parking, plenty of food and plenty of entertain- ment for the whole family. -Churc00 news Thurs., June 23 The Mill Chapel United Breth- ren Church will host a Hymn Sing at 7 p.m. The sing will feature the Vanderveens from Daytona, FL.
