LAST YEAR WAS THE BEST SHOW YET AND WE PLAN ANOTHER
FOR THIS YEAR. THANK YOU "DELLINGER GANG".
We have been very fortunate for the past 8 years to have good weather for the "Music at Dellinger Grist Mill".
But our luck can't hold forever. This year we have a backup plan. My great friend Bill Carson will make the "Orchard at Altapass" available to us if it is raining too bad for the "Dellinger Gang" at the mill. Thanks so much Bill.
