The pizza wagon will be there for those who wish to stay for lunch in that lovely country setting. Anyone who would like to read his/her original work (prose, poetry or song of up to 4 minutes reading time), please contact me for submission form. Deadline for submissions is June 12. LEND an EAR has grown every year. Joe Schrader has had his arm pulled to emcee again in his own inimical style.
