This Sunday marks the birthday of “The King of Rock 'n' Roll” – Elvis Presley.
He was born Jan. 8, 1935.
Tributes to Elvis have been offered by the Hancock Arts Council in the past.
However, this year’s tribute might be one to remember.
The arts council has engaged Taylor Brown, an Elvis tribute artist, who will perform Saturday at 7 p.m.
The program will take place on the stage of the Performing Arts Center in Town Hall, 126 W. High St.
Admission is free with donations invited to support future projects of the arts council.
Many churches will observe the Christian Feast of the Epiphany this weekend.
Epiphany is the last of the 12 days of the Christmas season and recalls the visit of the Magi, or Wise Men, to the Christ Child.
In celebration, St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, Church and High streets, will offer a Feast of Lights service featuring scripture readings, one last chance to sing carols of the season and close with a candlelight procession. The procession encircles the inside of the historic church and symbolizes the showing forth of the light of Christ to the world.
A potluck supper in the parish hall will follow the service, and the public is invited to attend.
