SAVE THE DATES - 2009 Summer Concert Series in Farnsworth Park

The Sheriff’s Support Group of Altadena (SSGA) is pleased to announce the concert dates for 2009. We have not confirmed the entire artist list yet, but we will have a great line-up for the 13th Annual Summer Concerts in the beautiful, and refurbished, Farnsworth Park amphitheater. Los Angeles Parks and Recreation have done a fantastic job with the improvements, you will be impressed!

We start with two concerts in June on the 20th and 27th. In July we will have three concerts on July 4th, (a very patriotic concert) July 18th and July 25th. In August there will also be three concerts on the 8th, 15th and 29th. All concerts are on Saturday night. The concerts start at 7:00 PM and end around 9:00 PM.

Our final, season ending concert, will be September 12th featuring Hot August Nights, a tribute to Neil Diamond starring Dean Colley. One word of caution, arrive early for this concert as Dean has a huge following and the amphitheater will be packed very early. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy all the hustle and bustle as we set up the show. And, as an added bonus, you can enjoy the sound check!

The Rotary Club of Altadena has partnered with us again this year providing logistical and financial assistance. Returning sponsors include Georgia Rutherford (in memory of Don Rutherford), M & M Printing, Toyota of Pasadena, Dickson Podley Realtors (Michael Baietti & Linda Seyfert) and Trinity Threadworks as well as Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich.

Over the past 12 years, the Summer Concerts have evolved to be a real community event. Additional sponsors are still needed, contact the hosts of the Summer Concerts, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station, Deputy Sam Estrada, 626-296-2105.

We look forward to seeing you again this year at this great family event!

Watch this space as more information becomes available. We up-date regularly.
