Stars, stripes and Sousa (May 25)

May 24, 2009

Hope you’re enjoying the long weekend, and that the rain didn’t spoil anyone’s backyard barbecue! We have our fingers crossed for sunshine — or at least the absence of rain — tomorrow afternoon (May 25). I’m sure the folks in the Compton Heights Band do, too, because they have a Memorial Day Concert planned for Tower Grove Park at 3 p.m. It will feature patriotic favorites, marches, Americana and an Armed Forces salute. Sounds like just the thing to get us in the mood for the Fourth of July! Kidding aside, we’re seeing bunting and flags in the neighborhood; I think a lot of people are feeling especially reverent this Memorial Day.

ADDED MAY 25:  Note the change of venue in the comments section!

    Special Alert: Because of the “iffy” weather forecast for Memorial Day, we decided to do something unprecedented; WE ARE MOVING THE CONCERT INDOORS TO OUR BINGO HALL (Bandwagon Hall) located at 2151 Lemay Ferry Road – in the Midwest Banking Centre at Lemay & Reavis Barracks Road.

    Directions from St. Louis City: I-44 to I-55 South and exit at Reavis Barracks Road.. Travel east (turn left) onto Reavis Barracks Road for approximately one mile (cross Green Park Road intersection at traffic light). On your left, you’ll see a large sign for Save-A-Lot. Take a left at the next driveway after the intersection into the parking lot of Midwest Banking Centre. There is a large LED sign for “Bandwagon Hall”. That’s us! Park anywhere since none of the businesses will be open. Enter front doors.

    No smoking in the bingo hall. No food or drinks may be brought into the bingo hall. The bingo hall concession stand will be open to the public. The tables and chairs will be set up as for bingo, but the public should feel free to bring folding chairs for more comfortable seating.

    Lots of restrooms and AC! What more could you ask for on a hot or rainy day????
