The popularity of the Music-in-the-Park concert series grows each week. Last Sunday, when the group Smooth performed during the sixth offering of the summer season, the park was curb-to-curb people, several of whom danced to the Funk/Latin/Rock sounds. This Sunday evening's program promises to be different fare than usual. The heart and soul of Scotland will march into town with the Misty Isle Pipe Band. The performance will begin at 6 p.m. with the last gasp of a bagpipe scheduled at 8 p.m. Under the direction of Tom Reoch, who was born in Scotland and founded the band in 1999, this world-class group will be the first Scottish band to perform in Memorial Park.

I have just arrived back home from Scotland and England where it was a brilliant fall with trees in their full colorful glory. Kind of strange to leave a place where I was all bundled up to keep warm and jump right back into summer-like weather here in our valley. I had wonderful wanderings and, of course, the highlight was to spend precious time with my three grandchildren — Aidan , Lucan and little missy Morgan — children of my son Chris and his wife Megan, since they now live in England.
