Summer 2021 Review:

On July 7th, we hosted a Concert in the Park with Jamie Allanach! And on July 21st, we had a great time with the Red Hot Hayseeds! On August 4th, we had a wonderful evening with Lyndsay Butler. Marcus Trummer, a 20-year-old from Calgary, joined us in the park on August 19th and astounded us with his original tunes and great covers! On Wednesday, September 1st  – the band RUTSTUR thoroughly entertained us even though the weather was very cool and windy!
