Concert Coming to Washington

The Washington’s Lions Club and the Knights of Columbus are teaming up to put on a concert at the new Stage at the fairgrounds. No acts for the “Concert By The Lake” have been announced yet, but Dave Politte with the Lions Club says you won’t want to miss it.

"There’s two days of the concert and there’ll be a nationally known band each day, and there’s also going to be a couple of bands from the St. Louis area that are going to come out that I think have a really big following in the area and that most people would recognize. So it’s going to be a good show.”

The “Concert By The Lake” will be held on May 10th and 11th.

What he also could not have conceived is how this phenomenon of pervasive media has actually stymied, not enhanced, the free speech expression of presidential candidates.
