Blog Your Blessing Sunday #37
If you care to join us acknowledging our blessings go here: Blue Panther
My blessing this week are the free concerts in the park each Thursday evening during July and August. This week it was our pleasure to hear Patrick Lamb and his Band again -- they also performed at our 4th of July event.
A bank here pays for most of the expenses and we have a Pepsi distributor and the local newspaper supporting it also.
It all takes place at a park in the middle of downtown. There is a beautiful bandstand there to use for performances. The mayor attends each one and always has a few good words to say about that night's band and always puts in a plug for Vancouver also. They even have prizes given out at half time to lucky ticket numbers which we are given free of charge.
OK, so now you know the setting. . . get your imagination going and sit back and listen to two hours of great tunes. What else can it be but a blessing? ONE that has been going on each summer for the past 8 years. If it is Thursday night, you will find me at the park! Thank you, Lord for the gift of music you have given to so many and for the sponsors who make it possible!
