If you like bluegrass, look it up on the web and plan to go in 2016. You will hear music that will tickle your fancy.

Kudos to Courtney Ewald and her volunteers who put on this show. I am always very appreciative of these people.

A special event which I have never seen at the events I go to was quite moving. Friday night, there was a tribute to veterans. All the vets in the audience were asked to go to the front of the hall. Over 100 of them were given a flag pin and were told that “we appreciate our service” a nice touch.
