When Harry Luge took the stage at 8pm, a good crowd had gathered and settled into their lawn chairs for a delightful con- cert! Mr. Luge interacted with the audience and the children who found their way upfront to take close-ups of the band. After the concert, Luge autographed free CDs and the QCB T-shirts. The concert was held in the baseball field and the grass field provided a wonderful play- ground for the youngsters. Funds raised from the concert will support the Quartzsite Ac- tivity Center of Willpower, Inc.
