June 26, 2010: The Shinnston Community Band has had to change the date of the annual Independence Concert and Fireworks. The concert will take place at Shinnston City Park as usual but it will be on Sunday, July 4! The band has a great program planned with a good mix of music, from the traditional annual favorites to some soft music to some special themes. Suffice it to say, this will be a great event. Expect to have to walk a few blocks because parking in the area will fill quickly.
There will be food for sale at the pool concession stand and the Swim Team will have its annual bake sale. Come to the concert and fireworks for a pleasant ending of out Nation’s Birthday! (and yes, once again, Gillum House guests will be attending!) Psssst! Come to the Glen Elk Festival on Sunday, July 18 for another opportunity to hear a Shinnston Community Band performance.
