 Our May 1 Jazz Concert rocked! It was an amazing evening of jazz, classic pop and singing in TBC’s parking lot on Saturday night. We had a wonderful turnout and everyone had a fabulous time.

It’s another journey, not an easy one at times, and instead of getting easier as I get older, we seem to be facing more challenges.
