Hoover Happenings

Spring is just around the corner, so here are a few events to keep you busy until the warm sun comes out!

HIGHLIGHTS

Feb. 24
Sixth Annual Hearts and Harmony Gala
Hoover Country Club
6-9 p.m.
The Hoover Service Club’s Hearts and Harmony Gala 2018, “It’s Magic,” will consist of dinner reservations, live and silent auctions, and patron donations. This annual fundraiser enables the club to carry on its legacy of helping others. RADM Jack Natter, retired, will serve as honorary chairman for the event. All proceeds from the fundraiser will be distributed as scholarships to deserving Hoover students and as donations for worthy programs serving the Hoover community. Visit Hooverserviceclub.com or call (205) 305-0050.

Feb. 21+22
The Roosevelts Concert
The Library Theatre
7:30 p.m.
Indie-rock/pop band The Roosevelts have cultivated a sound that’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit pop and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. When forced to give it a name, the boys will tell you it’s “harmony-driven American rock with a ’70s sensibility.” The release of their first EP, “Cold Sheets,” in late 2013 garnered the attention of several music industry execs, prompting the band to move from Austin, Texas, to Nashville, Tennessee. The Roosevelts are a band music fans of any genre won’t want to miss. Tickets are $27.50.



Feb. 23
An Evening with Steve Berry
The Library Theatre
7:30 p.m.
Former trial lawyer and Southern Voices alumnus Steve Berry will be featured at this Hoover Public Library event as part of Southern Voices Festival 2018. He is a New York Times #1 internationally best-selling author of more than 15 novels and four e-book originals. Known for his historical thrillers, Berry’s latest, “The Lost Order,” the 12th Cotton Malone novel, tells the story of the Knights of the Golden Circle and is described by Barnes & Noble as an “expert melding of nail-biting political intrigue and fascinating historical mystery.”
