On Monday, September 7, pack some refreshments and lawn chairs or blankets and head for the Civic Park Bandstand to hear the annual Labor Day Concert, which will be performed from 7 – 8:15 p.m. by the O’Fallon Community Concert Band. The concert includes selections from “The Sound of Music,” John Williams’ “Evening at the Pops,” “Glenn Miller in Concert,” “A Suite of Old American Dances,” “Fantasy on Yankee Doodle,” The Light Cavalry Overture,” and “Berliner Luft.”

Civic Park is located on Civic Park Drive about four blocks west of Main Street in downtown O’Fallon.

To show appreciation for deployed U.S. troops, donations of pocket-sized packages of food, personal care items and other useful supplies are being collected through O’Fallon’s Support Our Troops Military Supply Drive. The drive kicks off August 11 and continues through September 11, with multiple donation sites throughout the community.

“Our troops overseas deeply appreciate snacks and practical items from home,” said Kathy Halstead, O’Fallon’s Volunteer Services Manager. “The donations will be sorted, packaged and shipped as part of National Day of Service and Remembrance projects on September 12, which will be coordinated by Volunteer Services. We’re also encouraging people to contribute signed ‘thank you’ notes and cards for the troops, and we hope to include at least one personal message of gratitude on behalf of the O’Fallon community in each package.”
