The turnout of over 500 to an inaugural concert on Mr. Lincoln Square is being declared a success.
Tim Followell is the Clinton City Administrator and explains the first time around they felt like everything went very well despite the heat on Saturday. He says Lauren Alaina was a terrific act for those in attendance.
The Clinton Athetic Booster Club was out at the site selling pork chop and ribeye sandwiches. Athletic Booster Club President Brian Ennis says they appreciated the opportunity, however, it wasn't about the dollars and cents for them, they just wanted to do something for the community.
Jean Rogers runs Big R Concessions and is a member of the Celebrate Clinton Association. She explains the sales proceeds from their stand at the concert will be turned over to Celebrate Clinton for their 4th of July festivities on the square, including the fireworks display.
Brushville will be the next concert on July 30 on the square followed by another concert sponsored by the Clinton Chamber of Commerce in August, and the City will sponsor another concert in September.
Followell says the City will soon be in the evaluation period to find out what went well and what they need to improve.
