THURSDAY DAILY


































LAST NIGHT THE ANNUAL MAQUOKETA ROTARY CLUB ICE CREAM AND CAKE
SOCIAL AND BAND CONCERT WAS HELD AT THE OPEN AIR SHELTER AT THE
FAIRGROUNDS IN  MAQUOKETA.   BECAUSE OF THREATENING WEATHER
(A FEW SPRINKLES ARE ALL THAT CAME) THE ATTENDANCE WAS NO MORE
THAN 75, BUT I'M SURE THEY ENJOYED THE ICE CREAM AND HOME MADE
CAKE AND MUSIC BY THE MAQUOKETA COMMUNITY SUMMER BAND, DIRECTED BY JAY KAHN.    THESES ARE LOCAL MUSICIANS  FROM MAQUOKETA AND MANY OTHER TOWNS NOT FAR AWAY....WHO ENJOY
GETTING OUT THAT OLD BAND INSTRUMENT AND MAKING MUSIC WITH IT
AGAIN.     ONE, STEVE TUBBS, HAS BEEN WITH THE SUMMER BAND EACH YEAR SINCE IT STARTED BACK IN THE 70'S.    A BUNCH OF PHOTOS BELOW:
