“Get all the excitement of a River City Brass Band Concert with the intimate setting of a chamber music recital,” according to a news release. “Come out and enjoy the show as the members of the River City 6 dazzle the crowd with lightning-fast licks, laughable antics, and unforgettable charm.”

The concert is free for association members. The cost for non-members is $20 at the door.

Pet Mates Calendar Contest under way

The Humane Society of Moffat County is now accepting entries for the 2012 Pet Mates Calendar Contest.

The contest is free, and digital photo entries must be submitted by May 21 to hsmc2012@yahoo.com.

The Humane Society recommends participants set their cameras to the highest resolution possible because photos will be enlarged.

Photos should be horizontal, in .jpg format, at least 200 dpi and six inches wide. They should be e-mailed as an attachment.

The name and age of the pet should be included, as well as the name of the owner and his or her phone number and e-mail address.

No more than two entries per family, and submissions must have been taken within the last year.

Pets must still be alive and live in the home.

Local business owners will judge the entries and choose a top 24. The public will vote by donation for the top 12. The winners will be featured on a month and runners-up will be featured elsewhere in the calendar.

The contest is a fundraiser for the Humane Society.

For more information, call Carol Scott at 824-2103.
