V9 By Pamela Ruben What better way to memo- rialize those who have loved and nurtured the arts than by naming a musical festival in their honor? Those were the thoughts of Jewish Pavil- ion Board member Geanne Share when she and husband, Adrian, chose to pass on the legacy of her parents, the late Inez 'Teddy' and Myron Snyder. With the arts and philanthropy at the center of Share's Brookline, Massachu- setts home, she credits her parents for inspiring her life ofvolunteerism, with training given "while practically still in the womb." The Share family will pass on the Snyder's love and culti- vation of the arts by honoring them at the Jewish Pavilion's Annual Fall Festival, "Music Fest 2017." The event will take on Oct. 15th at Lake Brantley High Schools' auditorium in Altamonte Springs and will feature local super-talents including Carol Stein, Mi- chael and Ben Kramer, Bar- bara Jones, Cantor Jacqueline Rawiszer, Penny D'Agostino, Walter "Sky" Goldstein, and Paul Stenzler. Vendors and sponsors will be exhibiting in the Lake Brantley cafeteria, adjacent to the auditorium before, during the intermis- sion, and after the concert.
