Family Concert

Red Grammer will be performing Monday, February 2, at 7pm in Bryan Hall. Tickets are $6.50 adult and 4.50 child.

I cut and pasted this from an email I received from Beasley:

Red Grammer is one of the premier entertainers of children and families in America. Described by Parent’s Magazine as “the best voice in children’s music” Red has set the gold standard for writing and performing music that that playfully reconnects each one of us with the best in ourselves.

Red can be heard tickling and nourishing hearts and souls via his award-winning recordings; his numerous appearances on television (The Today Show, CBS This Morning, Nickelodeon, Showtime, PBS, The Disney Channel… ); his unforgettable live concerts; his award-winning DVD (Hooray for the World); as a featured artist on the 2005 Grammy-winning Best Musical Album for Children, “cEllabration: A Tribute To Ella Jenkins”; and on his new Grammy nominated album, “Bebop Your Best!"

Don’t miss this opportunity to treat your family to a great evening of fun and music.

Mortgage Broker?

We are looking to refinance our house, but don't have any experience with a local mortgage broker. I've already checked most of the bank rates. Since every % point matters, I'm thinking of going through a mortgage broker. Does anyone have a recommendation?
