While providing summer concerts is the major focus for the gazebo board, it also recognizes the need for continued maintenance of the gazebo. The board is looking to upgrade the lighting within the gazebo, cleaning and painting, and addressing other minor repairs. These maintenance costs are an additional expense and go beyond what summertime receipts allow.

The Music for Mavis Gazebo Building Committee seeks monetary donations, labor or material for maintenance. Those interested in becoming part of the committee and supporting music in the community can call Anderson at 754-0954.
