WAYNE MESSMER CONCLUDES 58th SINAI FORUM SEASON
The 58 th season of the Sinai Forum Presented by Purdue University North Central will conclude on Dec. 11 at 3 p.m. at Elston Middle School in Michigan City with “An Afternoon with Wayne Messmer.” This program is sponsored by Horizon Bank.
The 2011 season is sponsored by the Franciscan Alliance Northern Indiana Hospitals, including Franciscan St. Anthony Health in Michigan City and Crown Point, Franciscan St. Margaret Health in Dyer and Hammond, and Franciscan Physicians Hospital in Munster. The Forum Reception sponsor is Family Express.
For decades, Messmer was known as the voice of the Chicago Cubs and other professional sports teams. His renditions of our national anthem, sports commentary and countless voice-over and narration spots made his voice one of the most recognized in the country. One tragic moment in time put not only his life, but the way he lived his life, in peril. This promises to be a stirring program of personal journey to medical, emotional and spiritual recovery.
Messmer will speak about “Facing the Challenge of Change” and recount his 1994 experience as the victim of a random act of violence and how after this experience, he found a deeper resolve to become more engaged in life after his had been spared.
