This comment was originally posted under PJohF and now it is under pull this leg. Looks like someone has an alter ego or two that they can use to make it look like people are agreeing with them.

What do you mean it would be $8.00 now not accounting for higher cost of living. The governments own website http://data.bls.gov/cgi-bin/cpicalc.pl?cost1=.75&... shows that .75 in 1947 would have the equivalent buying power as $8.02 today. That DOES take into account higher costs of living. ITS…

Concerts in the Plaza start TODAY in Downtown Quincy

they will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church

The Historic Quincy Business District is pleased to announce that they will be sponsoring the Concerts in the Plaza Series starting TODAY! Concerts on the Plaza will take place each Thursday starting next week through the end of June. They will be held at the First Mid-Illinois Bank Plaza on Maine Street, next to St. Boniface Church.

 

The Historic Quincy Business District has been contemplating the concerts for a few years now. In talking to people the concerts in the plaza are a frequent topic. Many people remember the concerts that used to take place there, and we are excited to be bringing them back. The concerts will be from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM each Thursday and feature various performers from the community. This year's lineup will be:

            May 22 - Rodney Hart

            May 29 - Quincy Symphony Orchestra Quartet

            June 5 - Liz Bentley

            June 12 - Vancil Performing Arts Center

            June 19 - Cheryl Kaiser School of Dance

            June 26 - Rodney Hart & Paul Wood

 

In addition to the acts on stage, the Historic Quincy Business District has arranged for food trucks to be associated with the concert series. The organization has confirmed that four food trucks (The Butcher Block, The Quick Course, Hank's Curbside Canteen, and Hotdogs-R-Us) will be in attendance to serve patrons that are attending the concerts. We feel that having these food vendors all in one spot and providing a great variety will enhance the experience for concert goers. 

            

The concerts are sponsored by the Historic Quincy Business District and the First Mid-Illinois Bank. We are so thankful to have the bank's support as we bring back this concert series. From the minute we approached them they have been involved and working with us to make this happen. They are a wonderful community partner and we are thrilled to have them downtown.
