President’s Message – August 2017

Wow! I can’t believe that we are only 24 days away from kick-off to the “Summertime Blues” 2017. A fantastic day of giving back to the community as we begin with a benefit concert for our Loaves and Fishes Food Bank beginning on Thursday August 24th. Features 5 amazing bands followed by an incredible jam with over 20 members of the “Blues Shuffle”. Here is your opportunity to find out what the blues is all about. Don’t forget to bring non-perishable food products or a suggested donation of $10. Let’s fill the shelves and help the less fortunate.

Starting Friday let the good times roll. The next 3 days brings the best lineup the NBS has ever presented. Make sure you bring your enthusiasm, a couple of buddies, low riser lawn chairs and high expectations. We promise that you will not be disappointed.

We have upped the game plan. A bigger stage, better sound and lights, a change in stage location, increased vendors and artisans and a bigger footprint in the park. An onsite ATM will be available as well. A welcome addition is a family friendly zone which will be alcohol and smoke free.

We have a waterfront venue and the weather is looking great. Our board of directors has been working overtime to bring you the best “Blues” experience ever.

Remember! Don’t forget to like our Facebook Page and share with your friends and family. Thanks for reading til the very end.

Until the next time.
