WILMINGTON- The 2012 Fall “Up Close and Personal” concert series at Memorial Hall announces three concerts starting on Sunday, October 7, at 7:30 pm with the Commander Cody Band; on Saturday, November 10, at 7:30 pm, with Leon Redbone, and Thursday, December 6, at 7:30 pm with Enter the Haggis.

Historic Memorial Hall is a wonderful community resource and an appropriate venue for intimate “Up Close and Personal” music fans. There is truly something special about seeing great artists perform in such a uniquely personal location. The objective is to bring nationally-known performers here on a regular basis throughout the year. In 2013, the hall plans on producing 12 to 15 concerts.

After Tropical Storm Irene devastated the town last year, all have gained additional appreciation for local charitable organizations along with the folks who make them work so well. A portion of the proceeds from the concert series will be contributed to these organizations. Additionally, these concerts will bring folks into Wilmington for dinner at local restaurants and some shopping at stores. Reopening flood-ravaged businesses has been a long, arduous, and expensive process. Every way to create more activity in Wilmington for dining and shopping will be a long-term plus for the community.

The Memorial Hall Board has done a great job in improving the Hall as a Valley treasure through presenting programs that interest various groups in the community and securing grant funds to upgrade the building.

This program is a further indication of diverse uses presented by community based organizations, profit and non-profit, to mske more entertainment to residents and visitors.

We're fortunate to have advanced from the days when one group controlled the Hall to the exclusion of all others.

Lets keep up the good work Memorial Hall Board.
