Williams Wraps Up Summer Concert Series

[slideshow_deploy id=’63440′]

This summer was extra special for Williams residents as they enjoyed the annual concert series hosted by the Citizens for a Better Williams.

Beginning earlier in June, the organization held its first community concert themed for children, with the help of First 5 Colusa County.

“We were excited to have this opportunity,” said Citizens for a Better Williams president, Andi Armstrong, “The Children’s Concert was a success.”

Hosting concerts every other week, the community concert series was offset with concerts held in Colusa.

This year, concert goers in Williams enjoyed tunes from the Double Zero Band, the Hot Rods, Inside Strait, and the Road Crew.

Local organizations also participated by serving up dinner, cool beverages, and dessert.

“Everyone looks forward to the fresh strawberry shortcakes and root beer floats,” said Armstrong.

On July 31, 2014, a special concert was held to honor and raise funds for the home of wounded warrior, SSG. Alex Jauregui. The community rallied in support of over $10,000 was raised towards the national non-profit, Homes for Our Troops for the Alex Jauregui home. Jauregui’s home is scheduled to begin construction on August 23, 2014.

“The concert was a home run this year,” said Williams Mayor, Pat Ash, “The weather cooperated and all the bands were great!”

“In addition to raising funds for one of our veterans and his new home, we were able to help other local non-profits raise funds for their organizations,” Ash added.

Sponsors for the 2014 event included First 5 Colusa County, Recology of Butte Colusa Counties, California Family Foods, Williams Soaring Center, Sarvin Singh, Valley West Care Center, Weston Buildings and the Williams Pioneer Review.

“I would like to thank all of our sponsors who made the event possible and everyone for coming out and contributing to yet another successful year,” said Armstrong.

The Citizens for a Better Williams is a grassroots organization aimed at developing community events and projects which will affect the wellbeing of Williams residents with an emphasis on business and community involvement. Any individual who lives, works, or has an interest in the betterment of Williams, is welcome to join.

“I can hardly wait until next year!” said Ash.
