The 25th anniversary committee of the Foothills Music Club (FMC) recently met to plan for 16 months of celebrating to mark the 25-year milestone for the club. Beginning in September 2012 with a public concert to honor the music club’s founder, Lesley Oakes, the celebration will include musicales in private homes, public concerts in various spaces, auditions for the scholarships for young musicians and many other activities. The events will continue until December 2013, honoring the status this organization has achieved in Polk County and the surrounding area.
