LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Many hugs to a rocking crowd

To the editor:

When people come together, good things happen and this year’s Third Annual Concerts on the Lane proves that.

Thank you and warm hugs to all the great people who donated time and talent to this year’s Concerts on the Lane. It was a great success.

Thank you Whidbey Island Bank, the Music Selection Committee, Kathy of Inspired Gardens, Kay Lagerquist, Fred and Sharon Lundhal of Music for The Eyes, Herb and Marilyn Helsel of the Langley Clock Shop, my staff, and my husband Tony Newbauer.

These wonderful people made it possible for the parking lot behind 1 Angel Place, Chocolate Bar to be transformed into a venue for local musicians to showcase their passions and their talents.

And a very big thank you and warm hugs to the musicians who lugged in their equipment, set it all up, played each Saturday afternoon, and then packed it all away to get ready for the next gig, all for the love of music and a desire to share their talent and their message with those who will listen.

Thank you Chaz and Ed, Chaz and Matt, Island Strings, The Mosquito Fleet, Deja Blues, Neal and Lynn of the Acoustic Circle, Janie and Joe, Don and The Dark Horse Band, Swords into Plowshares, and The Dandelion Greens. You are the pulse of the Langley music scene.
