ALTON — The Great Rivers Choral Society will perform the hits of The Beatles during the next Rockin’ with Robert concert from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 16, at the Robert Wadlow Statue on the SIUE Dental School Campus, 2800 College Ave.
Concertgoers are encouraged to bring a lawn chair or blanket. Refreshments will be available for purchase. A 50/50 drawing will offset the expenses of the event. Sponsorships are available; call (618) 465-6303 for details. In case of inclement weather, the concert will be rescheduled.
The concerts are organized by the Upper Alton Association to further its mission of supporting future improvements to Upper Alton for residents and businesses. The organization sponsors the installation of U.S. flags on light poles for all federal holidays, maintains hanging flower baskets during the summer months, coordinates the Souper Saturday dining event, installs holiday decorations during the winter and supports the City-Wide Litter Clean Up. New volunteers are welcome, and membership is open to anyone. Dues are $75 for businesses and only $15 for residents. Meetings are at 8 a.m. on the third Thursday of every month at Senior Services Plus, 2603 N. Rodgers.
