GODFREY — Big goals brought out the big guns for scholarship funding this season.
Rotary Club of Alton-Godfrey booked the Glendale Riders for the club’s annual Rotary Christmas Concert, which is a fundraiser for the club’s scholarship program. The Alton-Godfrey Rotary annually awards up to $10,000 a year to students attending among Alton High School; Marquette Catholic High School; Mississippi Valley Christian School; and, Lewis and Clark Community College.
The band will play music from George Jones, George Strait, Merle Haggard and Glen Campbell to name a few, as well as Christmas songs and sing-a-longs, such as “We Wish You a Merry Christmas” and “Jingle Bells.” The concert starts at 3 p.m. Sunday at LCCC’s Hatheway Cultural Center in Godfrey. Ushers will be available to take guests to their seats.
