“Thursday In The Park” Makes a Great Start for Summer Season

Approximately 300 attend free concert at Citizens Lodge Park

By Sid Riley

What a great family evening last Thursday was for approximately three hundred local citizens! The temperature was perfect, there were no mosquito’s, the music played by the local group “Twenty on Red” drew resounding applause after each song, all indications of the level of enjoyment attendees were experiencing.

The musicians did a great job, and the lead singer Carol Dunaway filled the night air with smooth, soothing sounds. Most of the crowd stayed until the music ended at 9:00 PM. It certainly was better than another evening watching the same old things on the “boob tube”.

Most people had brought a cooler filled with favorite libations, many had their family dog on a leash, and they sat in their lawn chairs and socialized with friends and neighbors between songs. It was a relaxing, enjoyable evening of family involvement….all for free, thanks to our Jackson County Commission and Jackson County Parks and Recreation Department.

This week “Thursday In the Park” will feature “2nd Time Around” , a local group filled with talent. Richard Hinson, John Donaldson, Phil Register, Floyd Griffith, and Van Kundy will be there to entertain you for the evening. You won’t want to miss it. Foot stompin’ starts at 6:00 PM.


  1. Absolutely an awesome way to spend an evening!!!

  2. I will definitely be out there July 1st for the local band Chester's Curve, I've seen this band several times and they're great!
