Without further adieu:
September has arrived, Labor Day is over, and Fall is coming. Our Farmers' Market is still going strong. To hang on to a few more weeks of Summer harvests, join us at the Market on Wednesdays from 3:00-7:00 pm at S. Fort Thomas and River Road. Our vendors are faithfully producing wonderful goods. Please help us make sure they return next year by supporting the end of harvest goodies they provide!
This week's concert at the Amphitheater will be Thursday at 7:00 with the P&G Big Band. Remember, if it's raining, the concert moves indoors to the Community Center (former Mess Hall).
If last week's audience was any indication, we should have another great evening of fun! So many thanks to David Thiel for bringing the Navy Band to Fort Thomas. Dave made all the arrangements, provided food and drinks out of his own pocket, and then led the members of the band to the museum for a tour. If you missed the evening, you missed dozens of Navy personnel in their white uniforms, meeting and greeting the audience. It really was a memorable evening. Thanks! Dave. Once again, our fabulous museum volunteers will be providing concessions.
One more concert at the Amphitheater next week! The Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra will be bringing us their very special music at 7:00 Tuesday, September 13. The Recreation Department has outdone themselves all summer with making sure the site was ready to go for each concert. Bob, our terrific emcee, is always ready and willing to help out. Scott Rath is also wonderful with facilities.
AND THEN!!! Merchants & Music on Saturday, September 24 from 4-11 pm at the Stables parking lot. Our very own Fort Thomas Tupelo Honey will perform at 4:00. Then the Rusty Griswolds, Greater Cincinnati's favorite. G. Miles & the Hitmen will continue the evening and then topping off the entire event, The Fabulous Thunderbirds!!! Fort Thomas Pizza and the Midway Cafe will be providing beer. Dep's will provide wine. Fort Thomas Renaissance has put hundreds of hours into the planning of this annual event and this may be the very best yet! Thanks to Ken Bowman and crew for the hard work!!!
Another round of thanks to Public Works. It truly takes an entire team to manage all the grounds around the City of Fort Thomas. All the mowing, watering, weed-eating, sowing of seed, cleaning of restrooms, street cleaning--all of it is done by this crew. Please congratulate them on a job well done!
