Monday Night Kickoff

Monday Musicale began with the Lemmon's just like last year. Also like last year was a very small crowd the first night. I hope it grows at least a bit every week.

To show you what you missed, I offer this;

I hope there will be more public in weeks to come. It's really demoralizing otherwise.

I feel bad for them.

Of course, it would help if there were a bit more advertisement than the tiny article in the local paper. A BIG article or ad in the paper and an internet campaign would help! Sadly, we did not show up even though we wanted to show support (lovely family, they are). It's hard to organize such things when the town is small plus most of the county's population lives outside the town.
Btw, enjoying your blogs.

Last year I spent about $300.00 advertising it. This year I just can't afford it. So I have to rely on what the paper gives me, the bank sign, and signs I have posted in local stores.

Surely this isn't coming out of your own pocket?!!! Seems to me the local businesses would want to promote this to bring folks into town on a Monday nights. Perhaps even offer their own Monday night specials... picnic-type foods, specials on picnic blankets or camp chairs - pulling together as a community to promote local talent and the economy. Oh, what do I know? Just another thought of mine that blows in the wind. Liberty can't be Lexington without the population concentration. Culture/art thrives where the economy can support it. Until then, Casey County culture will continue to consist of farming and working in a distant factory and coming home with just enough energy to eat a late supper after chores and go to bed. Perhaps the occasional sit on the front porch to swat at the bugs and listen to the whippoorwills. As a life-long native in the rural part of the county, I know this to be the cycle.

I would absolutely love it if you would send that last comment as a letter to the editor of the Casey News.
