July 20, 2013. On the last day of the heat wave, the Bullard Memorial Farm hosted Band and BBQ on the lawn and in the barn.

The six member band includes Rick Delvecchio, vocals and banjo ...

 ... Glen Daly , vocals and guitar ...

 ... Paul Gillespie on bass guitar and cello ...

 ... Bob Whiting, vocals and mandolin ...

 ... Bob Chisholm, vocals and guitar ...

 ... and Kevin Wehmhoefer, vocals and guitar.

Before and after the Hillbilly Pop's performance, guests enjoyed snacks and cool drinks under the tent.

Old fashioned games were set up for those who didn't mind the heat.

Supporting of all things historic, Bill and Sylvia attended the concert and share a moment with Representative Carolyn Dykema, who brought the entire family along.

During the concert break, special guest Lois Francello entertained the crowd with numbers on the harp.

Hot Dogs and hamburgers were served during a break in the performances.

Green Community-Stretch Code

by Judy Grosjean
