These three women, residents of the Hill, with their young children, showed up for the Thursday evening summer time concert hosted by the Friends of the Eastern Promenade – but they were in for a surprise.
When they arrived, they learned that the concert by the Gay Men’s Chorus had been cancelled. The popular group was concerned about the weather for the evening. There was a lack of communication somewhere because no one enjoying the evening knew anything about it!
As mothers, they expressed concern about being a parent here in the United States in view of the recent mass killings over the weekend in Texas and Ohio. “We are thinking of moving to Canada because it’s a terrifying time to live here,” said Vanessa Aaspaugh. She is a choreographer at Bowdoin College. (She’s in the above photograph, far right).
The Two Texans were invited by the Friends to serve at the concert that was to have started sat 6:00 pm. Business was down somewhat, but it was still really good. The two from Dallas and Houston came two years ago for the snow: “We love the snow.” (They gave me their business card, but I misplaced it. Will keep looking for it, though).
