“Fridays After Five” returns to Shenandoah Elks Lodge
on Thursday, May 6, 2021
First National Bank and the Shenandoah Elks Lodge are collaborating again this year to host “Fridays After Five,” an event that features live music every Friday in May and June at the Shenandoah Elks Lodge. Opening night is this Friday (May 7) featuring the four-piece band Union County Strings.
“I think we’re all ready for some normalcy again, to get out and be social,” said Michael J. Bauer, president of First National Bank in Shenandoah. “You’re going to like the lineup of musicians we’ve put together this year and, more than that, it’s just a fun way to end the week. Take all the precautions you want, but please come out to the Elks this May and June. We look forward to seeing you!”
Music will begin shortly after 5 p.m. each Friday on the east lawn of the Elks and will wind down around 7 p.m. This is a family-friendly event. Kids are welcome.
Admission is $5 each Friday. But, the first 100 attendees (21 and over) will receive a free drink token and since First National Bank is paying for the entertainment, all gate admissions will go to local organizations for the betterment of Shenandoah. For the first week, all gate money will go to the Shenandoah Medical Center Foundation. Jon Skillern with Shenandoah Elks Lodge has been instrumental in organizing this event dating back to last year.
“If you came last year, you know this is a good time,” Skillern said. “If you haven’t attended yet, give it a try. The weather for this first one looks beautiful. We’ll have staff outside selling cold drinks. Come up after work, bring your friends and family and then go support local eateries.”
The artist lineup after Union County Strings includes Jim Larson May 14, Tyler Folkerts May 21, Dan Trilk May 28, Dustin Baird June 4, Roger Burger June 11, Jeff Slater June 18 and Paul Hart June 25. Skillern would like to remind everyone again that Fridays After Five is open to the public. You don’t have to be an Elks member to attend.
