Button Up Your Overcoat
Nearly 100 people gathered last night to honor award winners at the Soil & Water Conservation Commission annual dinner. And the Yesterukes were there to provide the fun. We played a few of our very best songs for an audience of all ages. We can count on the seniors enjoying what we do, but the younger ones there had just as much fun. It was great afterwards to have several come up and tell us, "You know, I really liked that."
After the program, the great coat hunt began. It was cold and rainy all day, so people arrived bundled up. A gentleman in the audience put his coat and hat with ones that belonged to our group. Being ever so helpful, a Yesteruke took this coat home, thinking one of our group had left it. Well, one of our group had left his jacket--but not that one. After several phone calls and many emails, we have located both coats. Now to round them up and return them to their rightful owners.
And you thought having a band just meant playing music!
