Those attending are asked to bring a blanket and/or chairs and sit under the trees along Charley Creek where they can enjoy items purchased from the food tent or dinners for two which may be pre-purchased by calling the Honeywell House until July 26.  In case of inclement weather, the concert will be held in the Honeywell Center gymnasium.  Parking will be available at the Honeywell House, Wabash High School, and the American Health Network parking lot.  The Wabash Cannonball Tram will run from 4:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. between Wabash High School and the Honeywell House.
