    MUSIC IN THE PARK A BIG SUCCESS

    MUSIC IN THE PARK A BIG SUCCESSMUSIC IN THE PARK A BIG SUCCESS

    The summer Music in the Park program concluded on Wednesday evening, August 28, with Bernie’s Polka Band and an appreciative audience that was treated to free hamburgers by volunteers from the Home of the Hamburger, Inc. Jim Campbell, president of HOTH, and his hamburger helpers, grilled burgers and provided french fries for the crowd.
    Ideal Weather
    Ideal weather conditions made it a perfect evening for the veterans’ night gathering. The Color Guard from Kraft-Krause Post 106 presented the Colors and Elaena Duffy led the crowd in singing the National Anthem. Bernie Kroll, leader of the polka band, who served two terms in Iraq, thanked all the veterans present for their service.
    Large Crowds
    It was another successful summer as 3,000 people enjoyed the twelve concerts in the park. Members of the historical society extend a sincere “Thank you” to Seymour area merchants who make the music possible. It takes many volunteers to organize and produce the summer long program. A huge thank you for the members of the historical society who contributed their time, popping popcorn, filling coolers, selling concessions, distributing raffle tickets, organizing the programs, and preparing the site for the performances. Special appreciation is extended to host Mike Keyzers, and John and Lynn Koenigs who schedule the music.
