Bummer! Caroline Aiken has had a bicycling accident and injured her wrist. She had surgery on Friday and it went well but of course that means she will not be coming to Wine & Music Fest. Jimmy LaFave, another favorite here at Kerrville , has stepped up to close Saturday night. YEA Jimmy.

We tried to get the Indigo Girls to come and take that spot to raise awareness and some financial assistance for Caroline but it didn’t work out….alas. BUT they and others from our Family will be doing shows during the next few months to do just that. We want to send her some love and good wishes and some cash after Wine & Music, so will give you the opportunity to help out as we did with Allen.

The Sunday morning services to remember and celebrate Allen is growing as we knew it would. What a beautiful Family we are!

There is so much happening all at once around here right now we are spinning. The phones are ringing the tractor is mowing and as Rod used to say when folks would ask if we were ready, ‘They’re coming whether we’re ready or not’.  So, come on!

Love,

   Dalis

ALLEN DAMRON REMEMBERED

Several tribute / memorial gatherings for dearly departed Allen Wayne Damron have already happened or are in the works.  Allen touched so many of us throughout the years, it’s difficult for us to imagine his passing.  We will, of course, be remembering Allen during the 35th Kerrville Folk Festival next Spring, but in the meantime, good portion of the Sunday Folk Song Service during the 2005 Kerrville Wine & Music Festival will be devoted to remembering Allen.  The services will be held at 11 a.m. on Sunday, September 4.  We’ll be honoring Allen with stories, songs, and prayer.  Join Rod Kennedy, Tim Henderson, Bobby Bridger and others for this warm tribute.
