Don't miss this opportunity to participate in a great show while making a significant contribution towards saving the Memorial Oak Grove! http://www.saveoaks.com

"Someone needs to protect these senior citizens from being kicked out of their home," says Country Joe. "The idea of just chopping down trees to build things is an idea that no longer makes any sense. This is a space well-used by creatures and people for years and years, not too mention that the whole Memorial Stadium was probably built to honor World War veterans. The way to honor them is to leave it alone."

If for some reason you can't attend, please consider purchasing and donating your ticket. We will get your ticket to a low-income person, and you will still have the satisfaction of sustaining this irreplaceable oak grove.
