Food Bank Stats:

• 9,805 volunteer hours spent in 2018;

• 2,086 local people served every month, 30 per cent of whom are children.

Ali Romanow’s Western Swing Orchestra

Focusing on tight vocal harmonies, interesting instrumental parts and quirky arrangements, this upbeat band is a hoot and a holler. Harkening back to era of Bob Wills & Milton Brown dance bands you’ll hear a range of classic ’30s & ’40s tunes, plus some more modern standards. Led by Ali Romanow this group of folks meets once a week to dig into the amazing world of western swing

The show starts at 7:30; admission by donation.
