Thank You For Goff House Gazebo Concert Support!

The Joseph N. Goff House board of directors would like to send a big THANK YOU out to everyone who came out to the 17th annual Goff House Gazebo Concert series this year! We had a great line up of band and wonderfully supportive crowds, even last night in the church hall because of rain! Thank you too to Boy Scout Pack 8 for providing delicious snacks and to all those who supported the series financially this year, it couldn't be done without your help. Most sincerely, the Joseph N. Goff House Board - Dean Markham, Debi Rotteck, Kim Page Dinardo, Bob Berlin, Jill Walker and Melissa Pionzio
