    Hey Everybody!

    Michelle and Jerry:

    It’s AtwoodFest time of year ICYMI. This year will mark not only the 13th year that I have been involved with the music end of the festival, but for my parents as well. They have been the backstage hospitality team the whole time and when I think about it, we’ve fed more than 1,000 musicians. Dat’s allota meat-a-balls!

    Through heatwaves and rain showers to just plain great days, Mama R√∂kker and Papa Jerry have been backstage serving up food and cheering on bands. This year is special as it is also their 50 year wedding anniversary. If you’re coming down to the festival give a shout and a high five, they deserve it!

    Adventures with Lizzie and Nikko:

    School’s out and summer camp is in for Nikko. His favorite activity so far was going downtown for a scavenger hunt. Lizzie, on the other hand, is filling her days going to Driver’s Ed class. Yes, you heard that right. Look’s like I get the passenger seat from now on… Shotgun!
