The Event in the Tent!

No, Muhamad Ali isn't coming out of retirement, but this event should also pack a strong punch. On Saturday, July 25th, we will be treated to a performance by the Cadillac Phoenix Blues Band.

The special time for this concert is 5:00 PM, and the special location will be outdoors, under the big white tent we have set up for the museum's wine tasting fundraiser on Sunday.

I hope you will attend and when you do, be sure to thank the members of  Cadillac Phoenix, because they donate their performance to us as a fundraiser.  All proceeds will go to help maintain and preserve our museum and historic village.

Please note that the concert will end before the start of The Barn Theatre performance that evening, so if you want to double-dip, here's your chance!
