Friday March 13, at 7:30 p.m., The Country Troubadours will be back with us. We haven’t had music the past few weeks because of water outages and inclement weather. We are so ready to hear some good music and dance. We have missed our friends so bad. So, maybe you ought to come join us and shake off your cabin fever too. The Country Troubadours are smooth as silk and have a wonderful honky-tonk sound! Just the thing to unwind with. You will just love them… we sure do. No bad luck this Friday 13 for us!
