Pictured is part of the crowd enjoying music by The Renaissance Jazz Band at the Tittabawassee Township Park yesterday. What an evening. Good music... good company... and for the hungry among us, good food!
Oh yes.. there was a gathering intended for this same population the prior evening as well. That meeting was held in Midland at the Grace A. Dow Memorial Library Auditorium. Our friend Bill Egerer told you about it right here yesterday (Birnbaum II...by guest blogger Bill Egerer). In case you haven't read it yet, I saved the Midland Daily News article for you: Dioxin expert questioned in Midland.
I promised my version of Birnbaum II. I can sum it up in four words... New slides; Same message. Actually, she was more impressive when she gave her lecture earlier this year... as a kick-off speaker for the Lone Tree 'series of speakers.' The April 13, 2005 lecture showed us a well-composed, self-assured, honest woman telling us what she knows about an undesirable chemical and it's effect on living organisms. Although her presentation was equally well-done this week, she appeared to be nervously defiant during the question and answer period.
The audience was not unruly... mostly because there was not much of an audience present! I guess there's another technical information meeting today.
Meanwhile, the next concert in the park in Tittabawassee Township will be Wednesday, July 27 - 7:00 pm, featuring Duke Tumatoe & The Power Trio!
