Join us for Live Jazz Music and Local Spoken-Word
Starting at 1:30 pm today, Aug. 21, we’ll recognize local community members: Jetson Grimes, Fredd Atkins, Willie Charles Shaw and Miss Bernice Heggs. In addition, local storyteller Mr. James Brown will talk about Newtown’s History.
Between 3 and 5 pm, local talent Melanie Lavendar will deliver a passionate spoken-word performance, and Gerald Augustin will keep your energy flowing with his saxophone playing everything from R&B to Pop.
This family-friendly event is free to attend. So bring a lawn chair or blanket and enjoy the diverse local literary and musical talents.
Gerald Augustin is sponsored through the generosity of Modern Marimba.
