.Note: Gerard Funiture in BR has
been one of our more generous financial supporters, contributing to cost of
bringing in guest performers for Jams. Show support by mentioning
"bluegrass" when you shop at Gerard's ( even 'window-shopping' helps keep up morale in
these hard retail times).
Our biggest supporter is Lynn Boutin
who allows us the free use of his restaurant facility for our jams every
Sunday. (18 years ) Invaluable! Without Lynn = homeless.
