Fundraiser harks back to 1960s for night of musical memories

The annual Spirit of the '60s Coffeehouse to benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank will take place Nov. 16.

Presented by Clintonville resident Bill Cohen, the evening of folk songs and fashions of the era will begin at 7:30 p.m. at King Avenue United Methodist Church, at the intersection of King and Neil avenues.

Cohen will lead the audience on a candlelit, year-by-year musical journey through the turbulent 1960s, a time of Afros and miniskirts, anti-war protests and space flights, sit-ins and love-ins.

The evening will also feature trivia questions about the '60s.

The suggested donation of $10 at the door will benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank. Refreshments will be provided at no additional charge.

Free parking is available in lots south and west of the church.

While the show begins at 7:30 p.m., Cohen suggested people arrive early to get a good seat.

The performance, now in its 27th year, is suitable for adults and mature teens.
