Despite the unwanted attentions of Mr. Bill, the shows definitely went on! Friday night’s “Open Mic” was a great success, and we plan to make it an annual event, so anyone who couldn’t make it, or was maybe a little shy about performing, should know he/she/they are most welcome. Thanks to Emily Brown for spearheading the event. Thanks to Sita Strother and Tad Stankhe, the children’s concert Saturday morning was equally fine. Washington Grove has a lot of talented kids and adults!

Even though moving indoors put a slight crimp on the dancing, Jr. Cline and the Recliners were such a hit Saturday night that we’re looking to book a return gig next year. And as always, the Homewood Brass were a lovely finale; one of the musicians who hadn’t yet played in McCathran Hall was blown away by the acoustics. (Well, we told him!) Many thanks to Ann Briggs for securing their appearance.

As always, a big thanks to all those who helped set up, clean up, shop, etc., and a special shout-out to Ryan Young and Gary Temple, who wrangled the sound system all weekend.

Even with this short summary, it should be clear that the Recreation Committee has a lot on its plate, so we are certainly hoping some more Town residents would be interested in joining us. All are welcome, even as part-time help! The next meeting of the Committee is scheduled for Aug. 19.
