Over the Back Fence Radio Show

The Lanesboro Area Community Foundation had the wonderful opportunity to sponsor the Over the Back Fence radio show which was broadcast live on March 8, 2019.  Barb Jeffers, board member of LACF spoke on the program, promoting SMIF and LACF. Several other board members were also in attendance.

The theme of the evening was "Grand Olde Opry" and included many wonderful musicians singing old time country songs and many laughs were shared by those in attendance as various performers told jokes and performed skits.  The radio show was a wonderful way to share the mission of LACF to hundreds of people in the theatre as well as those listening  from around the county on the radio.
