Gazebo Nights was organized by Mike Mensching and Karen Karow for the first time in 2012 and they are happy to expand it further this summer, to seven nights instead of four.
“Thanks to the other sponsors who assisted with advertising, Church Mutual Insurance Company, Park Street Properties and Merrill Distributing. Drew’s Piggly Wiggly is supplying beverages for the bands, and Lincoln Lanes is providing room in the event of rain,” Mensching and Karow said. “This event could not be held without their support.”
HAVEN and the Band Boosters will be providing food and beverages, for purchase, at the park during the concerts. Should there be a rain date, no carry-ins will be permitted at Lincoln Lanes due to state law.
MGM Talent Productions has arranged for the entertainment.
“Bring your lawn chairs and coolers and have a relaxing evening of great music,” encourage the organizers.
