Adams Family Harmony Music Festival Yesterday (Sun, 24 Aug 2014)

Adams Family Harmony Music Festival Yesterday Date: Sun, 24 Aug 2014 07:29:51 -0400 Yes it was hot and humid at St Francisville yesterday but the good music by Barb Adams Allender and her family and the guest talent on display was fantastic and a great time was had by all. With a barn for the stage and benches and some shade trees we managed ok. We was our Vincennes Contra group who were invited to be a part of their program and we were able to do a few dances for the audience with the help of a gentle breeze and some minimal shade. But it was still fun as it always is. Some of our Contra dancers The Lidner Kids took part in the talent contest and took second with a $75 prize doing song and dance skits. Kind of reminded me of Dick Van Dyke and friends talent. :-) We are still in the process of getting a new year of scheduling dances with the Old Town Players Theatre in Vincennes. You will be notified. Ron Ackman

Country music festival

We have been invited to come and enjoy the music this Sat Aug 23 at Johnson Farms about 5 miles west of Hwy 1 and St Francisville IL. Starts around noon with lots of great music and we want to all be there by 2 pm their time (3 pm EST), Admission is $5 but if you say you are with the contra dance group admission is free. The Ron Linder family plan to be there to dance and when they dance it is always fun. I'm sure we will have several to jump in with us. Hope to see you too. Ron Ackman

This is what I was told

Today I was told a couple of things, first that the sewer plant is paid off and the complaint is why are we still paying such high rates; whether or not this is true I do not know at this time but the question is a fair one; also if the plant has been paid off in about 10 years when we apparently signed a 20 year note why wasn’t our rates set at about ½ our current rate? I guess that only ex-Mayor Tom Trowbridge knows the answer. I was also told that Bicknell Police Officer Terry Stremming and business owner Rod Mullins are both planning to run for Bicknell Mayor at our next election.

Third Annual Harmony Fest

Ron, I've been working on getting the word out about our festival. We are very pleased with the positive response from the Vincennes area contra dancers who plan to participate. It all kicks off at 12 noon on Saturday, Aug. 23 with a bagpipe group. "The Adams Family" is at 1 p.m. Doug Hawf's group plays at 4 p.m. If you know a certain time you will come, I can get it in the papers. You are welcome at any time I said, there will be music! Those who will be dancing will need to let those at the gate know so they are not charged the $5 to get in. Many Thanks! Barb

Music and Arts Festival

Ron, It is getting to be that time of year for our music and arts festival. It is Saturday, Aug. 23, 2014 - about 4-5 miles west of St. Francisville, Ill. on Harmony Road. I wanted to check in with you to see if some contra dancers could come to do a demonstration. We will have plenty of musicians to provide live music. I would love to schedule the group a time so that advertising can be out in plenty of time. Thanks for your (and group) consideration. Sincerely, Barbara Adams-Allender
