Fund Raising Concert Huge Success!
The Cannon Valley Senior Center’s fund raising concert in April was very successful! The sold out concert featured Andrea Davidson as the opener and Cannon Falls' own Caitlyn Smith as the headliner. Smith was on a 23 city tour promoting her new album, "Starfire." Thanks to everyone who attended this wonderful concert! Mark your calendars for September 15th; that is the date of our next concert, featuring Tim "The Fiddleman" Watson. Watson has had the number one show in Nashville for years and in fact, appeared in Cannon Falls back in 2012. More details will be coming soon for the Tim Watson concert.
