Committee Reports

Summer Sounds (JoAnn Knupp) Written report: June 16 will be the Beatlemania concert. Kevin at Big Spring Spirits contacted me and we're working together on this concert. He will be having a wine tasting 2pm-5pm and the Cast of Beatlemania concert will be 7p.m. Kevin and we have to provide sound people and a big tent which is costing a lot of extra money. So it is a big help to work with Kevin. We've gathered up $5,800 in donations. There's 1 donation I don't know the amount of yet. The Moose will provide the guys supper. Kevin will provide them snacks in the afternoon I will put them up Sunday night at the Best Western on Shiloh Road. We got 4 rooms ata $50 each and a fifth free.
