Music to our earsOctober 17, 2009
Pat Belt, chair of special events for our Foster Growth capital campaign has done an incredible job planning a variety of activities that are helping us raise money for our expansion and renovation. We’ve had a chili-fest, a brat-fest, T-shirt sales, and collection cans at local businesses. She and her team of people have been selling Foster Growth T-shirts, candy bars, and our library cookbooks at the Farmer’s Market and beyond.
Our next special event on Friday, November 13th promises to be very special indeed. A Musical night at the Museum will showcase jazz violionist Randy Sabien accompanying Bill Camplin and will also feature Satchel Paige Welch. We are just thrilled to be able to offer such a fine group of musicians to Fort Atkinson’s music-loving crowd. Hors d’oeuvres and wine will be included in the ticket price of $35 and all proceeds will benefit our library project.
We are grateful to Bill, Satchel, and Randy…and, of course, Pat who made the arrangements as well as her crew and the staff of the Hoard Historical Museum. When Pat told us of the event, we couldn’t believe how lucky we were to be able to host such a quality show. Randy, an incredible musician and performer, has been hailed by the Christian Science Monitor, the USA Today, and many other publications. You can hear a sample of him at his website. Bill is a legend himself and his son, Satchel, an exciting young performer. Tickets are available at the library and at the Cafe Carpe. The Hoard Historical Museum is located at 401 Whitewater Avenue in Fort Atkinson.
We hope you join us. It’ll be music to our ears…and yours!
