Midland County Fair Week - August 11-17, 2014

It's fair week in Midland County, which can only mean one thing... elephant ears!  Actually, it also means that it's the week before the Midland Folk Music Festival, and the wheels have been turning to get things planned and in motion for months now.  Would you like to be part of connecting these two events?

FMSM has a space near the Gazebo at the Midland County Fairgrounds throughout the week of the County Fair (Aug 10 - 16) from 11 am to 10 pm to make fair-goers aware of our organization and the upcoming Folk Music Festival.  There are still shifts that are open, and FMSM could certainly use you to pass out literature and tell interested passers-by what our festival is all about!  For more information, contact Louis at 989-860-2431 or Claudia at 989-859-0335.

The only other scheduled event this week of which I am aware is SUGAR's monthly visit to Bickford Assisted Living on Thursday, 8/14/14 at 10:30am.  Second Jam and PEANUT are still in recess, and will resume on the second Friday night of September.

FMSM events for July 27 thru August 3, 2014

First of all, FMSM apologizes to those of you who came out for the Mt. Haley Jamboree last Friday night (7/25/14).  Apparently, the staff and management of the township hall booked a graduation party that night and didn't realize that the Jamboree is customarily held on the last Friday night of the month.

Here's what's cookin' for the upcoming week...

Wednesday, July 30th - JH/S plays at Haithco Park in Saginaw at 7pm.

Thursday, July 31st - SUGAR plays for a luau at Edgewood Assisted Living, 4850 Gratiot in Saginaw from 1:30 until 2:30pm

Friday, August 1 - JH/S plays at the Merrill Farm Fest at 7pm.

Saturday, August 2 - SUGAR meets at Sullivan's Restaurant, 5235 Gratiot in Saginaw from 10:30am until noon.  Optional lunch afterward.

Sunday, August 3 - the last scheduled installment of Folk Music Sunday happens at Dow Gardens, 1809 Eastman Ave. in Midland from 4-6pm.  Admission for listeners is $5, or an annual pass is $10.

That's about all I know about...
