“Fridays After Five” returns to Shenandoah Elks Lodge
on Friday, April 29, 2022
It’s back for another year!
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 Friday (May 6) featuring Tyler Folkerts.
“We’re excited to sponsor the entertainment for a third year,” said Michael J. Bauer, president of First National Bank in Shenandoah. “We’ve added some new local artists this year including the high school group Gas & Grass to go along with our mainstays. We can’t thank the Elks enough for their hospitality. This event is such a great way to end the workweek.”
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 Holly’s Hope, a non-profit dedicated to stopping domestic violence and helping women, men and children in Page, Fremont and Montgomery counties.
Jon Skillern and Duke Neumann with Shenandoah Elks Lodge have been instrumental in organizing this event dating back to the first 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. 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 Dustin Baird May 13, Jim Larson May 20, Gas & Grass with Jeff Slater May 27, Head Over Heels June 3, Roger Burger June 10, Union County Strings June 17 and Jeff Slater June 24. 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.
