5. Look ahead: Nardin Park Summer Concert Series Finale
The church's last concert of the summer has a fitting theme: "Live, Laugh, Love". Vocalist Kathy Gibson is described by reviewers as "an uncommonly diverse singer" and a talent reminiscent of "Helen O'Connell, Ella Fitzgerald or Marion Hutton". The concert is free, but donations to keep the series going will be accepted. Doors open at 7 p.m., the concert begins at 8 p.m. on Wednesday.
