Our free Summer in the Park Concert schedule is almost complete. This year we are excited to present 2 female bands, the Lula Wiles Band, and the Sounds of the Northway will perform on the porch of the Community Center. Other exciting performers have been contacted and as soon as we have confirmation of dates we will announce our schedule. These summer concerts are free.
