The Galley Restaurant at the Marina invites individuals and bands to apply for a Musicians' Showcase on selected Friday nights this summer. If you're 18 or older, this is a great way to get some performance time in front of an audience. It's not a paying gig, but you might collect some tips. Apply at the Galley during business hours.
While we're on the subject of talent, the Whallonsburg Grange will host some rocking performers in its "Idol Contest" on Friday, July 10, and Friday, July 17, starting at 7 p.m.. Nine finalists will face-off on Saturday, July 18, starting at 8 p.m. to win the title Grand Champion. This will be a lot of fun, and it's also a good opportunity to see and support the excellent work that many volunteers have been doing to renovate the beautiful old Grange building.
A final note to those over age 55: please be sure to fill out and send in the survey that was recently circulated by the Office of the Aging. The results will be important for the town. Wait a minute-how did I get back to seniors again?
