Thank you to all who attended our 2015 Summerfest Concert and for your kind words!

I just left an enthusiastic phone comment of support about the wonderful Summerfest concert last night. There were a lot of music lovers there who left happy and satisfied. One of the best! You did a great job. I intended to thank you personally before we left, but it didn't work out that way. and phone message. Anyway, this one should have left you and the Cultural Council staff, board and volunteers extremely pleased. Even the rain stayed away, so we all left dry, contented.and smiling. Onward!

I have had three different students contact me this morning and tell me how much they enjoyed the concert last night. Thank you for providing the opportunity for them!
