After last week’s weather cancellation, we were determined to be on The Lawn for The Woodpicks, sponsored by The Alexandria Rotary Club.
Thank you to the Alexandria Rotary Club for sponsoring tonight’s music, and to the many Rotarians who showed up to help us out this evening! — with The Woodpicks in Alexandria, Minnesota.
Every year the Rotary puts on a fantastic pork n corn feed, and it’s happening on Wednesday of next week. You gotta eat…and these pork chops are fantastic!
The Woodpicks are a tight group of very talented fellows who play a fantastic variety of bluegrass, country, and gospel styles.
The threat of rain didn’t keep folks away from The Lawn, thank you all for joining us!
An entertainer, through and through!
This little one was enjoying the evening, just look at that smile
There were a few raindrops at one point, but it was over quickly. Look how prepared the band was!!
Thank you to everyone who came tonight, the dark falls quicker now, we’re getting late in the season! Please come again next week for Enterprise sponsored by The Guitar Shoppe!
