Fairy Lake an ideal setting for Sunday night music

Mother Nature seems to be bringing out her best with warm temperatures and clear skies as the second Sunday of summer concerts took place at Fairy Lake in Southampton.

The evening sponsored by Southampton Rotary featured the music of the Southampton Concert Band who delighted the audience with a wide variety of Broadway selections, ragtime and more under the direction of John Wills.

For Rotary it was a double celebration … sponsorship and a special birthday. It was a glamorous affair as Rotarians dressed in Rotary blue ‘period’ attire reminiscent of a by-gone era of the ‘Great Gatsby’ and enjoyed a picnic along with a little bubbly (non-alcoholic of course) to celebrate immediate past-President Sylvia Sheard’s birthday (July 7th ….).
