Join the city of North Branch for Concerts in the Park: a Hometown Celebration, held in Central Park, 6:45 p.m., July 25. Enjoy story time where the first fifty families to come will receive their own copy of the book being read. This week the reader will be Mayor Ron Lindquist sharing “Mrs. McNosh Hangs Up Her Wash.” Following at 7 p.m., join “Sweetheart Dinner Band” for an evening’s entertainment of alternative rock, pop, blues and just a little bit of country. Inspired by a shared love of music, the group performed together for the first time in 2009 and is comprised of mainly North Branch alums. The Sweethearts Dinner Band plays the music it loves, featuring tunes from the 70’s till now. It’s a smoke and alcohol free, family-friendly event, so bring a blanket, lawn chairs and a friend or neighbor to enjoy the evening’s entertainment. The North Branch Area Lioness will provide concessions.
