Editor, Index-Tribune:

I’d like to thank Bruce Cohn for his commitment to our community through his Fall Music Festival fundraiser. This event raises much-needed funds for the children of our Valley and the men and women veterans who have put themselves on the line for our country.

What makes this event stand out is the fact that a majority of the people attending and donating are from out of town or out of state, bringing in an influx of money for our Valley, closing in on the $7 million mark.

And I would be remiss if I didn’t add that we benefit by getting to hear premier classic rock bands at such an intimate venue. Name another town our size where you can literally drive 15 minutes and hear such caliber bands. Thank you Bruce Cohn, Michael Coats, Jonnie McCormick and the army of volunteers it takes to make this happen.
