***Please limit your family to **** ONE ADULT **** attending the concert because of limited space.. No exceptions. The POPS group wants as many CHILDREN to be able to participate as possible. If you have adult family members who want to go – the POPS group usually performs the same exact concert to the public the Sunday before the Thursday that we go. That Sunday concert is NOT free.

***If you have a small child that can sit on your lap, let me know so that I do not include them in our total counts.

In your email, message or post to me please indicate the total number in your family that are going, e.g., 1 adult, 1 child on my lap and 2 kids, etc.

Cheers,

Maggie
