    1960's Coffeehouse to Benefit Food Pantries

             Civil rights sit-ins. Bell-bottoms. Anti-war marches. Student Power. Afros. Hippies. Riots. Space flights. Political assassinations. The generation gap.

          Those hallmarks of the turbulent 1960's will be rekindled Friday November 2 at a "spirit of the '60's coffeehouse" at the King Avenue Methodist Church 299 W. King at Neil in Columbus. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. in the church basement, but get there early for a good seat.

           Bill Cohen will lead a candlelit, musical, year-by-year journey through the era, with live folksongs, "news reports" of sixties happenings, displays of anti-war buttons and posters, and far-out sixties fashions.

           Bill will also challenge the audience with sixties trivia questions, and he'll award prizes to those with the right answers.

         Proceeds from the suggested $10 donations will go to the Mid-Ohio Food Bank. Refreshments will be available at no extra charge. Free parking is also available in the lots just South and West of the church.

           It's the 16th year of sixties coffeehouses for Bill. He's performed the show more than a hundred times now at colleges, churches, synagogues, conferences, high schools, and middle schools across Ohio and beyond.

           For more information, call Bill at (614) 263-3851 or billcohen@columbus.rr.com.
