++ Rain on Don’s Parade? — July 2, 2014.
++ Postponement to July 5th? — July 3, 2014

The latest event info., online, does NOT show Don McLean.

Event info. in May 2014, as shown below (and in this post), did show him at 7:40 pm. BUT, I always feared that that was a tentative ‘placeholder’ schedule and that it would change. Sorry. Not my fault. We are as crushed as you. We love Don. It was such an honor and joy to see him last year. I had tears pouring down my face. The kids were intrigued.

Not familiar with Suzanne Nance. Just Googled her. Appears she worked for MPBN — Maine Public Broadcasting Network. Appears that she is an award-winning soprano. Hhhmmm. Devanee is a soprano and given her involvement with Clearlakes Chorale and now Great Waters it might be good for her to see her. Not sure what the plans are. Our main motivation for making the trek was to see Don. But Deanna, being a Mainer, kind of wants to go to Portland irrespective. Will all depend whether it gets postponed etc. Alton fireworks are now on Saturday, so are “Annie and the Orphans” in Wolfeboro. That one is easy to solve, at least from my perspective. Sorry about the bad news re. Don.
