Cathy DunphySounds great. It would be helpful if you created it as an "event". That way Facebook followers will have it in their calendar and get reminders. 😊6 days ago   ·  1

Our last Amherst Community Band concert is this Friday, August 14th from 6-7:30pm in Sweetser Park (across from The Black Sheep)!

I can't think of a better way to kick off the weekend than great music and a picnic in the park. We hope to see you there!
