Music This Week Feb 1st thru Feb 7th

Hey there,
The AHRF fundriser last Sat. was a great success. Thank you so much to  Rev. Conner Mack Tribble, More Popular Than Klaatu and Caroline Aiken &  Catch a C.A.B. who supplied the fantastic music, The Office Lounge for providing the venue and their staff and support, Michael Pierce for the great poster for the event, Rick Scheuerman for the lighting and backgrounds and everyone who helped make the AHRF fundraiser such a fantastic success.
Unless I missed one,this is one of the few weeks when Athens doesn’t have a fundraiser or benefit scheduled. If you have a weekly budget for donations now would be a good time to donate to the AHRF.
