Music in the Park Concerts

The Music in the Park Committee has met and discussed the pandemic situation and are watching and assessing the situation and their options.
At this time, plans are to proceed and have the concerts. A couple issues can change that quickly, so we ask that you listen to the radio for any last minute changes!

We need the "safer at home" order to be lifted and we need the parks to open for events.
It is hoped that we can start early June, but only time will give us that answer right now.

We continue to work on our sponsorship's and Friends of Music in the Park donations. We have 3 concerts available to sponsor. If your business is interested, please let the Chamber office know.
Concert sponsorship's - $300.
Salute Golf Outing - Save the Date!
The committee is watching and assessing as we move through the pandemic issues of “safer at home” to opening our area and businesses. Decisions will be made as late as possible.

We are continuing our sponsorships (rest assured that if we have to cancel any paid sponsorships will be refunded). So for now, IF you planned to sponsor a hole etc. please let us know so we can reserve it for you!

Because of the uncertainty of recreation right now, we will be changing up our invitations to save on costs if we find we have to cancel.
Turtleback will be sending out information soon, and we will begin taking registrations of teams. Costs will remain the same as last year.
$99—golf/per person, includes lunch, dinner, and cart
$25-evening buffet/per person
$10-lunch only (for those not golfing)
Please email your registrations to We will confirm we have received them and further information will come in June-July.

Thank you! We are looking forward to seeing you in August!

New Entrance Sign Is In
The Placemaking Entrance Sign Committee has been working on replacing the old entrance signs to our community.

Last month the first of the signs went in. There is some finishing up to do on landscaping and clearing some brush, but when the leaves come out and grass grows it will be beautiful in its setting.

Many thanks to those who donated funds and inkind materials or services.
