GREENVILLE — Get in the holiday weekend spirit on July 1 at Lunch on the Lawn at the Greenville Public Library.
“These events have become popular with good reason – delicious food, a gorgeous setting, and fabulous music,” said organizers. “You’re welcome to bring a lawn chair or blanket and your own lunch – or purchase one at the white tent. Or just stop by to enjoy the music under the library’s shade trees from 11:30 to 1.”
July’s lunch is provided by D’Alessios with the menu of a choice of chicken salad or Italian sub, pasta or fruit salad, a potato chip cookie, and either lemonade, water, or iced tea. Each lunch is $7 with $1 going to support Mainstreet Greenville.
The public is also invited to come out to kick-off “Stuff the Bus!” The library is partnering with United Way to be a drop-off location for donations of school supplies throughout the month.
“Please give generously as these supplies will be given out free to students in August,” a spokesperson said.
Music lovers are in for a special treat as the singing quintet Quintessential and the band On the Radar will both entertain. Quintessential won first place in the 2016 Ohio’s Got Talent Competition in March. The group consists of Quincy Baltes, Isaac Buschur, Brody Hyre, Mitch Rawlins, and Kyle Wuebker, all of Versailles High School. They won as the Jersey Boys singing a medley of The Four Season songs.
Three of the singers — Wuebker, Rawlins and Buschur — are also members of the band along with Mason DeMange. Both the quintet and band have been friends since youth and plan to keep it going after graduation. They’ve performed in many local venues and are well known in the area.
What to expect? Quintessential does not only The Four Seasons, but The Temptations, Billy Joel, The Beach Boys and a rendition of the Tokens’ “The Lion Sleeps Tonight.” On the Radar puts its own sound and spin on a wide range of covers, starting with 80’s music, and moving into current and country. There will even be some Beatles thrown in.
Don’t miss a chance to enjoy these talented young men and another fun Lunch on the Lawn.
