Live Music Event
Benefiting Audio-Reader

Kick off Memorial Weekend right by taking in live music from The All Stars Band, featuring Audio-Reader listener William Hawkins on the drums, at the Z&M Twisted Vines Vineyard to benefit Audio-Reader! During this event, we will also be celebrating milestone birthdays for three Audio-Reader staff: Nick Carswell, Meredith Johanning and Beth McKenzie, who all turn 40 during the month of May.

Come enjoy sitting outside, listening to live music and sipping on some local wine. This is a safe, outdoor event with plenty of space to spread out. While this live music event is free, we ask that you consider making a donation to Audio-Reader. To have some fun with the birthday kids, we suggest making a donation in honor of the A-R staff turning 40 years young, with donation amounts in birthday increments such as $40 or $81 (the year they were born). We can't wait to see you for this fun (and safe) outdoor event benefiting Audio-Reader.

Over a year out from the start of the pandemic, Audio-Reader has continued to play a key role in making important information accessible to our listeners such as county health guidelines, adjusted store hours, and finally vaccine availability.

New Trellis in Audio-Reader
Sensory Garden

The entrance to Audio-Reader's Sensory Garden received a new look this past weekend. Local aspiring Eagle Scout, Connor Ireland, along with the assistance of Boy Scout Troop 55, built a new trellis and paved an extended brick path at the entrance of the garden. Connor is a Senior at Lawrence High School and chose the Sensory Garden for his Eagle Scout Project. The trellis is constructed from upcycled telephone poles and includes wiring to allow for flowering vines. We invite you to visit the garden to see the hard work of Connor Ireland and Troop 55. The garden is beginning to bloom with beautiful spring plants and flowers made possible by the hard work of our garden volunteers under the supervision of head garden volunteer Frank Male. Thank you, Connor and Troop 55 for the beautiful Sensory Garden entrance!
