The Senior Services Plus Meals on Wheels program received a huge boost from the Alison Krauss & Union Station featuring Jerry Douglas concert at the Liberty Bank Amphitheater on June 13. Approximately 3,500 tickets were sold, with proceeds helping to feed 575 homebound seniors throughout 22 townships. Krauss and company performed many of their well-known numbers, including “When You Say Nothing at All” and “Man of Constant Sorrow.” Opening for the group was the Harman Family Bluegrass Band, featuring Mike Harman. Mike performed with Union Station from 1986 until 1989, and during the show Krauss, who has received 27 Grammy Awards to date, recalled the days of band rehearsals with Harman in Bethalto.
