‘Mr. Mustard’ played behind the Yates Community Library in Lyndonville Monday evening for a distanced crowd of relaxed residents.
Library Director Emily Cebula was in attendance, and discussed the event, saying, “This year we have been lucky to have funding for once a week since early July. That was due to the outdoor crowd limit going to fifty. At that point, we felt we could go ahead. We actually had scheduled everybody in like February.” She added, “We didn’t tell the groups no because we were hoping that restrictions would be lowered by this time, and they were, very luckily.”
These events, like many others in the area, are made possible with the Decentralization Program, a re-grant program of the New York State Council on the Arts. The events are administered by GO ART! Of Batavia. An organization dedicated to supporting arts and culture in both Genesee and Orleans Counties. In Lyndonville, they are hosted and prepared for by the Yates Community Library Board of Trustees.
The remainder of the Yates Community Library’s August schedule is as follows:
August 25: The Old Hippies at 6:00 p.m.
August 31: The Barker Community Band at 6:30 p.m.
