Luckily I have awesome friends who stay on top of things!
Putnam is involved in a nationwide contest right now where towns are vying for grant funds of $25,000 for outdoor concerts.
If you have been to Putnam, or if you have read this blog you know that Putnam loves outdoor concerts. They happen throughout the year, some more widely known than others. River Fires are big draws, and First Fridays and the 4th of July Fireworks attract lots of music fans, too. There are more... and if Putnam wins this grant, well.... figure it out! More outdoor concerts!

The deadline to vote is this Sunday, November 30th. The top-20 vote getters advance to the next round where judges will select 10 towns out of the top 20 to each receive a $25k grant for outdoor concerts.
Recently Putnam was in 7th place, but lets keep on it until the last minute. Please share share share and help get the word out for our final push. You can vote once per e-mail address. Advice from Gary O of WINY Radio: "Please note that when you sign up to vote, they will send an email confirmation and the confirmation will probably get caught in your spam filter, so be sure to check there for the confirm email".

Sign up, scroll down, choose CT, and vote! You can live anywhere, and since each email gets one vote, use as many email addresses as you have. (We do seem to gather email addresses, don't we?).
I'll tell you what. If you do not live near Putnam, when we win, you can come and stay over at my house and attend any of these great concerts we have in Putnam! Deal? Deal!
I am a Putnamaniac that needs help to bring more live music to Putnam! Vote now!
