Songwriters in the Round

Did you remember that April is Earth Month? That's right--it's not just a day any more, now each day in April is set aside to consider the wonder that is our planet, not to mention ways to improve and save our environment.

There are several events scheduled for the Shoals area, and luckily for us, most of them feature music. Be sure to reserve Saturday, April 11, for Songwriters in the Round. The event features several well-known Shoals songwriters and entertainers plus a silent auction. Proceeds from the event will benefit Shoals area environmental causes.

Performances are at 5:00 and 8:00 at the Dish Gourmet Cafe in downtown Florence. Tickets are $40.00 each, a small price to pay for an evening with Walt Aldridge and several rising local music stars. For more information, call Shoals Tourism at 740-4141.

What's up with this: Supposedly, several Florence residents know the location of the missing third tier of the Wilson Park fountain. We can understand their reticence in the matter, but can you say "anonymous tip?"
