Lions Club celebrates 90th anniversary of Concerts in the Park

Posted

The Doylestown Lions Club hosts the Concerts in the Park starting on June 30 with the Doylestown Heat and the remaining series July 7, 14, 21 and 28 by the Central Bucks Community Band on the Doylestown Court House Lawn at Monument Square.

The concerts begin at 7 p.m. and the rain location is the Central Bucks East auditorium.

This year the summer concerts celebrate their 90th anniversary of performances. The Central Bucks Community Band initiated Concerts in the Park in June 1931 and in 1946, the Doylestown Lions Club began sponsoring these events.

The Doylestown Heat was formed in 2007 by a group of local musicians who were members of a jazz band affiliated with Delaware Valley College. The Lions Club became the sponsors of the Heat with the goal that the band would promote the club’s presence in the community and help the organization in its fundraising efforts for community service projects. To date, their performances continue and all funds earned go directly to the Lions Club.

The concerts are free. A collection is taken up at intermission.

The Doylestown Lions Club affirms that all of the proceeds resulting from the event will be used to support community charitable projects.

Sponsorships are available to assist Doylestown Lions Club by downloading a donation form from the website at e-clubhouse.org/sites/doylestownpa/ and mail your donation to: The Doylestown Lions Club, P.O. Box 1475, Doylestown, Pa. 18901.
