We are going to join the good people at The Maine Table/Merry Manor Inn again this year to ring in the New Year in South Portland, Maine. They are offering an appetizer/dance package and a great room rate if you'd like to stay over! Call 207-774-6151 for details and reservations!
The weather outside is....
Brrrrrrrrrrr....It's the busy holiday music gigging season and we've had a blast of winter air, snow, sleet, ice and wind this week. On Tuesday, the Trio had back-to-back gigs in a sleet storm and the commutes, load-ins and load-outs were rough and slow-going, but the crowds were hardy and in great spirits. Happy Winter, one and all!
On Monday, the Wreaths Across America escort/convoy passed through Maine and New Hampshire on its way to Arlington Cemetery in Washington D.C. with thousands of handmade balsam wreaths to place on Veterans' graves. I had the privilege of emceeing the Kittery Trading Post stop and performing my original song, "The Snow At Arlington." I had the honor of meeting the Grand Marshals of this year's escort, Vietnam Medal of Honor recipient, Col Roger Donlon and his wife, Norma. It was my 11th year participating in Wreaths Across America escort events and each year is more powerful.
The Wreaths Across America convoy arrives at Arlington on Saturday morning when thousands of volunteers gather to place wreaths on graves. Learn more and follow along at www.wreathsacrossamerica.org
