UPCOMING EVENTS

It’s “Spooky” how much The Lettermen miss being on stage and seeing all of you. However, we are continuing to add new ways that enable us to stay in touch with you through the LCP.

Project Highlight

Birthday Phone Call
Lou Brock was our September “Birthday Call” winner, and he received a surprise phone call from Rob Gulack. Lou later posted “It was a wonderful surprise. I am fortunate to enjoy The Lettermen since 1968 and will be back to see you all in concert once again. Thank you again so much. The LCP works!”
For your chance to receive a Birthday Phone Call all you have to do is register your birth month and day with the LCP. One lucky member will be randomly chosen each month and will receive a call from Donovan, Bobby or Rob.

Holiday Card Shower

Brooke Grove Rehabilitation and Nursing Center

The mission statement for the Brooke Grove Rehabilitation and Nursing Center in Sandy Spring, MD is “We touch people’s lives.” This could not align more with the purpose and objective of the Lettermen Community Project. There is also a very personal Lettermen connection to Brooke Grove. The mother of one of our staff members was a resident until her passing on Christmas Day, 2018.
We are proud to partner with Brooke Grove on a very exciting project for the upcoming holiday season, a card shower for approximately 160 residents of the long-term care division of the facility. With the effects of COVID-19, the holidays will be very different this year. One of the hardest hit will be residents of long-term care facilities and their families. Regulations in many States are currently not allowing much socialization, if any at all, and outside visitors are almost universally banned. Visits, if allowed, are very brief.

We want to help!

Between now and the end of November, the LCP will collect holiday greeting cards for the residents. We are asking all members to send us a package with as many filled out holiday cards as possible. All that is needed is a short, encouraging message and your signature.
Cards will be divided into packets for each resident and distributed the week before Christmas. Get creative and recruit family and friends. For example, make some cards with your kids or grandkids. Perhaps enlist your workplace, church groups or other organizations you belong to, to join in the fun.
There is no need for cards to be in individual envelopes. Please mail your cards to us no later than
November 30, 2020.

Spotlight

“Spooky” – For a little Halloween themed fun we aSked Tony Butala about hiS Solo on the album titled “The Lettermen Goin’ Out Of My Head”, which waS releaSed by Capitol ReCORDS in 1968.
 
“Spooky” is the song. It was initially an instrumental song and was originally performed by saxophonist Mike Sharpe (Shapiro). However, its best-known version was created by James Cobb and producer Buddy Buie for the group The Classics IV when they added lyrics about a “spooky little girl”. “Spooky” has ever since been an iconic Halloween song.
Tony added that by the time of the album’s release in 1968, The Lettermen were producing three “hit” albums per year, having just released two seasonal albums. “We thought that perhaps an album of various songs which touched on other holidays might be appropriate.” “Spooky” was one song idea.
