Blue Water Ramblers to NEW MEMBERS


Open Lakeview’s 2010
Music In The Park
Lakeview’s Music In The Park Concert Series will kick off it’s
16th season of great “lawn chair music” at the Village of Lakev-
iew’s Lakeside Park located on the shores of Tamarack Lake,
Wednesday, June 30, at 7 featuring the popular MIchigan folk
group, The Blue Water Ramblers.
The Blue Water Ramblers’ repertoire comes right out of the
Michigan life experiences and the history of the Great Lakes re-
gion. It includes lake shanties, lumberman ballads, union ral-
lying cries, farmers’ paeans, Michigan humor, ‘60s civil rights
and protest music, love songs, gospel music and children’s dit-
ties. Everyone agrees that these combine into a versatile rep-
ertoire to the delight and entertainment of their audiences. “I
think my hero, Woody Guthrie, would approve,” opined Banjo-
Jim. “We’re singing the people’s songs about the people’s lives
and they can join right in and sing along.”
This year’s Music In The Park series has expanded its sched-
ule from eight to 10 concerts, featuring some of the country’s
finest touring professional musicians as well as providing a
showcase for the area’s local talent. MIP is a free community
event sponsored by the Lakeview Chamber of Commerce and
made possible by the generous contributions of area business-
es, service organizations and local patrons.
Grab your lawn chair and join your friends and neighbors
at Lakeview’s Music In The Park, a Wednesday night summer
tradition.

Nearly three quarters of a million pre-owned vehicles were destroyed


during the Cash For Clunkers campaign. With lower bank rates and the
economy on the best uprise in years, customers have turned to purchasing
certified pre-owned vehicles to receive the most vehicle for their money.This,
in turn, has caused a severe shortage of pre-owned vehicles nationwide. This
has made it nearly impossible for Ed Koehn Ford to purchase high demand
vehicles from the auction houses. We must restock our pre-owned inventory
right now. If you have a pre-owned vehicle, regardless of condition, age, or
amount owed, we need your trade in. We will also pay off your loan
completely regardless of what’s owed on it.

We are prepared to offer thousands above market trade in value on your


trade. In order to take advantage of this unprecedented offer, you must
bring this invitation to Ed Koehn Ford Lincoln Mercury during event hours.

We promise:
1) A great selection of New and Quality Pre-Owned vehicles.
2) Great service and helpful sales staff.
3) Follow up after the event. WE NEED
YOUR TRADE!
