Free Concert Series Suspended for 2015

After 20 years of summer concerts, the Cultural Council has decided to suspend the concert series for 2015 for a number of reasons. For the past 6 years, the effort to raise money, find and book bands, and staff the events has grown increasingly demanding. In addition this year, personal priorities have severely reduced the committee members’ ability to carry on with their responsibilities. We are looking forward to renewing the series in 2016. Until then, thank you for your support and understanding.
