Celebration of the Common Good in Story and Song

On Friday, November 30th Larry Long will be sharing the evening at Leo & Leona’s with Servant Leader and storyteller, Tom Thibodeau; Mississippi River balladeer Eddie Allen: singer-songwriter from the farm fields of Iowa, Raldo Schneider; master bass player, Larry Dalton; and the  musical soul of the Wisconsin Driftless Region Dan Sebranek on guitar and vocals.

Recent woes and disasters visited upon the Wisconsin Driftless region in the past season have, at times, left folks feeling helpless and insignificant. But we are neither of those things. In this magnificent corner of the world and anywhere else you will find people working hard to help those in need and strengthening their communities.

Join us in a celebration of those efforts and of the inimitable human spirit that makes our community the greatest of our many treasures.   This will be a night to measure time from.
