Thanks to the support of the Greencastle community, last year's jazz festival was a great success. More than 400 people gathered in the Center's spacious backyard for an afternoon and evening of live jazz, barbeque dinners and desserts baked by our senior citizens and a raffle. It was a homecoming for many former residents of the South End and one of the largest, most successful inter-racial social gatherings in Greencastle. The day provided a wonderful atmosphere for all ages. Sponsorships will also be accepted.
