The Thursdays at the Felt Summer Concert Series kicked off July 6 at the Carriage House Stage, 6595 138th Ave. in Laketown Township, continuing a long-time tradition of music, food and fun for the community.
The concerts continue throughout the month. On July 13, the band Brena performs oldies to current hits, classic rock to R&B, country to dance music.
This is the final concert series for Felt Estate Operations Director Patty Meyer who has spent about two decades restoring the 1920s mansion and property in the dunes along Lake Michigan. She is retiring this fall.
She thanked the crowd for their support of the mansion restoration and asked them to remember that life is a restoration project.
“And that is my hope for this, my last, concert series at the Felt Mansion. I would like it to be a month of celebration, love, healing and joy,” she said in an earlier interview about the concert series.
