Dick Wallsinger
For those who love music and playing an instrument, the passion starts early.Youth grants us the time to pursue those passions, but once the responsibilities of adulthood mount, those who love playing often find little time to do so.When life grants us the time, often at retirement age, the passion may still be there, but the problem becomes where to find an appropriate and accepting outlet.Dick Wallsinger found himself in this situation.He loved to play the baritone saxophone, and this love inspired him to form the Cherokee County New Horizon's Band.His dedication to creating this band, comprised of primarily senior band members, makes him September's Pathfinder of the Month.
Dick was nominated by Terry Kerns, whose wife plays in the New Horizon's Band.

"I was talking to a woman who told me about this band, New Horizon's, that met in Roswell, and my interest was immediately piqued," Dick said.He joined the Roswell New Horizon's Band, which has been in existence since 1998.The enjoyment he and others received from this group prompted him to start a Cherokee County charter of the band."There was nothing like this in Cherokee County, and I knew there had to be others like me," he said.The band currently has 12 members and are looking to expand their membership.
Dick said the best part of being in this band is the people he plays with and the people he plays for."We play senior centers, retirement and assisted living centers and churches.To see the joy in the audiences' faces is the main reason a lot of us do this," he stated.Dick is still a member of the Roswell New Horizon's Band, and they recently played at the Mableton Amphitheatre to an audience of more than 700 people.
Dick lives in Waleska with his wife, Martha.He also enjoys golf, reading and woodworking.His legacy will hopefully live on in his 10 year-old grandson, who joins him every Sunday for dinner and to play the trumpet with his grandpa.
Thank you, Dick, for making our community a better place to live.
