Food, music planned for ‘Saturday in the Park’

The Times-Tribune

CORBIN — By Becky Killian, Editor

According to Tim Bryant, president of the Music Alumni Association, admission is free to the event — although donations will be accepted to help fund the association and arts programs at Corbin High School.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase by various arts-related groups and members of the Music Alumni Association will provide the music.

“We’re hoping to make this a big event,” Bryant said.

The association, which boasts more than 20 members — most of whom didn’t attend Corbin High School — is very supportive of the school’s arts programs. Bryant said that includes buying instruments for students. He also said he expects Corbin’s arts program will continue to blossom and enjoy statewide recognition thanks to the efforts of those involved at the middle- and high-school levels.  

Bryant also said the Music Alumni Association is open to anyone who plays an instrument.

“We encourage all local alumni to be involved,” Bryant said.

Anyone interested in joining the Music Alumni Association should call Bryant at 528-4191.
