"A MAIN STREET CHRISTMAS CONCERT"
The tradition continues with a wonderful concert to set the mood for your Christmas holiday. The Parsons Chamber of Commerce, Labette County Tourism and the Parsons Municipal Auditorium are giving the community an early gift this year when they present "A Main Street Christmas Concert" featuring The Duke Mason Band on Saturday, December 4 at 7:00 p.m. at the Parsons Municipal Auditorium. The concert will be a family-friendly event and admission is free of charge, although the Parsons Police Department's, "Shop With A Cop" program will receive the free-will offering.
In addition to Duke and his band, "A Main Street Christmas Concert," will feature special guests the Labette Creek Crooners. This local area Barbershop Quartet consists of Parsonians Joe Burke, Dean Cramer, Marlan Hoffman and Keith Maloney singing holiday favorites.
Duke has asked that the freewill offering be taken during the concert and all monetary donations be used to help support the Parsons Shop-With-A-Cop Program.
On the heels of the success of previous years Parsons Police Department, "Shop With A Cop" event, they once again will offer this to children in the community and will be funded with the donations collected from the concert and donation boxes.
"Shop With A Cop" is a community outreach program which will pair a deserving child with a Parsons Police Department officer who will shop for items for themselves and their families. There will also be another opportunity to donate to this commendable project if you are unable to attend the concert. Donation boxes for monetary donations will be placed in the City of Parsons, Water Department, in the lobby at the Parsons Police Department, and will be accepted through December 10.
So breakout the eggnog, put on that hideously ugly sweater, or whatever it takes to get in the holiday spirit and plan to attend "A Main Street Christmas Concert" featuring The Duke Mason Band, the Labette Creek Crooners and a special guest on Saturday, December 4, 7:00 p.m. at the Parsons Municipal Auditorium, 112 South 17th Street, Parsons, KS.
The show is free of charge, and all seating is general admission. Doors to the auditorium are scheduled to open at 6:30 p.m. "A Main Street Christmas Concert" is sponsored by the Parsons Chamber of Commerce and Labette County Tourism in cooperation with The City of Parsons and the Parsons Municipal Auditorium.
