We would like to thank all of our supporters and patrons for making the 2014-2015 concert season a rousing success! Over 900 patrons enjoyed the closing performance of our season as we celebrated our freedom with a patriotic concert featuring a 100 member community chorus and a flag presentation by the American Legion Post 164. The only things missing from this performance were fireworks, hot dogs, and apple pie! (We are working on those!)
