TLHD 60th Season

Farewell Angelina – July 15

OK, we didn’t think we could have any type season in this our 60th year.  Yet somehow, in the midst of the pandemic, Executive Director Nicole Mulder was able to perform her magic to attract Farewell Angelina to our campus.  They were on the original schedule for the season, but like all performing artists have been in total shutdown until now.  They were delighted to be here – they noted for their first drive in concert – and we were delighted they came.  Everybody was distanced in accordance with the rules – and you could sit outside your car – but those who didn’t could listen easy enough with the aid, if desired, of 97.1 FM.  And in their cars, they could honk their appreciation of each song, to the delight of the performers.  Thus, with further adieu . . .

[A 75-minute show, with no intermission, in hopes of making “potty” trips unnecessary.  And allowed for the group to have a break before the 7:00 show.  It was scheduled to have more attendees of likely younger fans . . . ]

[And a complete song for your wining and dining pleasure . . . ]

[Yep, another fan has been created.  10 of us from the early show (the blue plate special crowd) then went to Interlachen for outdoor dining.  It appeared to be unanimous among us that the group and performance were terrific . . . ]
