Benefit Concert.jpg

Join Weed Patch Music Company Co-owner, Kara Barnard, and friends on Sunday, October 1st at the Season's Lodge for this great concert to benefit "On the Road Again".  This is sure to be a fun-filled show for a good cause - featuring local celebrities Kara Barnard, Cari Ray, Dionne Ward, Chuck Wills, The Brown County Silver Strings Dulcimer Players, and everyone's favorite beagle - Dobie Jo!

On the Road Again is a yearly back-to-school event presented by God’s Grace, the free clothing mission of the Brown County Presbyterian Fellowship. While the event is faith based, it is supported by many of our Brown County churches, and no doctrines or theologies of one particular church are shared with recipients.  On the Road Again provides Brown County school children with clothing, personal hygiene items, grooming aids, and other items at no charge, helping each child to feel the comfort, acceptance, and eagerness necessary to successfully return to the classroom.
