Andrea Stetson captured the spirit of the Lovers Key Songwriters at Sunset Series in her recent News-Press article. You can almost feel the enjoyment of attending one of the concerts when you read her descriptions and the quotes from attendees, including our own Shelley-Sue Williams and Judy Greenwood.
The ocean and gulls provided background music for the occasion, and Love was in the air on the beach at Lovers Key State Park. Couples were young and old, from newly married to past their golden anniversary. This hallmark FOLKS event is so popular that two must be scheduled to meet demand – one in the morning and one in the afternoon.
FOLKS recently donated funds to Lovers Key State Park to purchase 14 deep cell golf cart batteries and a riding mower clutch. These much needed items were requested by Matt Kruse, Assistant Park Manager, at our recent FOLKS Board Meeting and unanimously approved. This is one example of how your donations and membership dues can help FOLKS to help the park. Thank you for helping us to help the park!
The second season of these popular monthly acoustic concerts is almost at an end. Local artists perform their original music at the Gazebo on the beach. Like last year, each concert starts about 2 hours before sunset, and there are different musicians each month.
Robert Steiger is no stranger to Lovers Key State Park. Before his homecoming in 2016, Bob served as Park Manager for both Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park and Lovers Key from 1994 - 1996; the parks were jointly administered at that time. Bob continued on at Delnor-Wiggins after Lovers Key’s 1996 merger with Carl Johnson County Park, at which point it gained operational independence and its own Manager.
The dates and times for these 2 great events have been set.
