I love the summertime. I also love being where it’s happening and hip.
Being an artsy, music person, imagine how jazzed I was when I found out that C&A was a sponsor of Jazz on the Green, one of the hip and happening spots to enjoy some hot fun in the summertime.
And – with glee – not only were we a sponsor, but C&A was going to make one of the dates a family affair, line up a reserved area on the lawn, and spring for dinner onsite.
I decided to bring my two year-old with me and make it a mother-son outing. And the temps cooperated and dipped below 90. Boy, this summer has been a scorcher.
Employees, their families, and guests began arriving around 5:30 p.m., straight from work. We enjoyed sandwiches and munchies on the lawn, mingled with each other, and took in the scene.
The featured entertainer, Steve Raybine and his band, began at 7:00. You could really sense a cool vibe and the feeling of community out there on the lawn as newbies mixed with veteran attendees.
Despite a light shower, the spirit certainly wasn’t dampened. It was a fun place to be. And great to know that C&A was a part of it.
