Benefit concert exceeds expectations

Check out the highlights from Paul and Hank’s Food Collection Concert held Friday at Linglestown Fire Hall.

I was very pleased with the turnout, and the couple that heads up the food pantry at Bethany Church of the Nazarene in Linglestown seemed to be wowed by everyone’s generosity.

Gazette thanks go out to the following folks for helping to make the concert possible:

* Gazette readers who showed up to take in the show
* Paul Zavinsky for hatching the idea for the concert
* Linglestown Fire Company for cosponsoring the event, and to Mark Gaspich for helping to set up the room
* Linglestown Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary for providing yummy refreshments
* All the musical artists
* My wife, Barb, for serving as the greeter
* Linglestown merchants First Impressions, Olivia’s Tea Room, Homza Chiropractic and St. Thomas Roasters for donating door prizes

There’s a good chance that another food-collection concert will be held next year.

Fire equipment paraded in Linglestown

Check out the video to see scenes from the Dauphin County Firemen’s Association parade held in Linglestown on June 13, 2009.

To see the firefighting equipment that appeared in the parade, CLICK HERE for photos taken by Linglestown resident Joe Murphy.

Several hundred people lined the parade route to look at the long line of trucks and floats. Some people were displeased that the road closures along the parade route blocked them from getting to their homes, according to comments posted on the Gazette.

I walked the parade route shooting video and passing out invitations to the benefit concert that will be held at Linglestown Fire Company on Friday, June 26.
