When financial times were good, Hamilton Township paid a very substantial amount of money to contract with professional musicians to come to the Hamilton Gazebo for 8 summer weeks. Unfortunately, the financial crunch over the past 10 years or so has resulted in the elimination of professional musicians to perform each Sunday. Our citizens loved those weekly gazebo programs and when they were curtailed during the administration of Mayor Glen Gilmore, I offered to bring my non-professional music to the citizens. Needless to say, a Tom Glover replacing seasoned professionals was a dud for many, but on the other hand, a number of citizens loyally attended my programs over the past 7 years. My credo, taken from the Bible, "wherever two or more are gathered in my name" has been the hallmark of this Sunday program, "The Music We Grew Up With." With a bit more support from a few "town fathers," I do believe we could get this thing off the ground. In all those years, only two township officials visited this austere volunteer effort: Glen Gilmore and John Bencivengo. For those visitors to this blog who have been asking, I will be doing the programs again this year if the township wants me.
