Fabulous music!!!

If you live in or near Allegan and you are not coming to the monthly concerts at the Presbyterian Church, I am here to tell you, you are missing out on some great music.

First of all, these concerts benefit local non-profits like the animal shelter, hospice, and the food pantry among other wonderful organizations.

The plate is passed and 90% of the money collected goes directly to a local non-profit group.  The remainder stays in the church's endowment fund which allows them to pay the musicians.

Last Sunday (always the second Sunday of the month @ 5p) we were blown away by The Crane Wives.  

This group is typical of the quality of music you will see if you come.  The program lasts exactly one hour and then, if you're a bit parched or a tad bit hungry, there are treats and drinks in the lower level of the church.

If you've been with me for a while you know I'm not your religious blogger so maybe you're surprised that I'm hanging out at a church on a monthly basis.  Well, it's a win/win for me (and you if you check it out); live music and helping out worthy causes.

Yes, there's a prayer at the end and yes, there's a reading of some sort from the Bible but I just take a mini "mind vacation" during those times.

Free, live music in your own back yard . . . and a lemon bar afterward.  What's not to like about that!?!
