Mason summer concerts get gift

Cinergy supports free park events

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        MASON — The Sunshine Summer Concert Series in Mason will be heating up this summer thanks to a $5,000 gift from Cinergy.

        The concert series, an annual event for Mason's Parks and Recreation Department, begins its seventh season June 6.

        Started in 1992, the concert series draws more than 2,000 visitors yearly.

        Lorri Fox, Mason's recreation programmer, said the concert series was started as a way to bring the community together and introduce residents to different types of music.

        “Each year the concert series gets larger,” Ms. Fox said. “It's very well-received by our residents and has become a longstanding tradition in the community.”

        The free concerts are held every other Sunday at 7 p.m. in the natural amphitheater at Pine Hill Lakes Park on Kings Mills Road.

        Cinergy's donation will be used to offset the cost of this year's series, which doubled from 1998, Ms. Fox said.

        “Cinergy's grant is a tremendous contribution to Mason,” she said. “Grants and various contributions like this make it possible for the parks and recreation department to provide this quality concert series and many other programs for the community at no or little cost.”

        This year, the series will be the first to include a fire works display by Rozzi's Famous Fireworks at the July 4 concert.

        Food and face painting for children will also be available.
