News for May 2013

Happy Memorial Day!


Thanks to all our volunteers for offering their time and talent to promote The Pavilion Partners mission of “Bringing People and the Arts Together.”

From the Desk of Your Partners’ President:

Hello Fellow Partners:

With summer here the concert season is in full swing. This may be the best concert season we have had in quite a while.  It seems that there are great concerts almost every weekend.  From Mumford & Sons June 12, PitBull & Ke$ha June 22, Barry Manilow June 30, John Mayer June 12, Kid Rock July 19, Black Sabbath July 25, Brad Paisley July 28 to Keith Urban Aug 16. 

There is something for everyone with more to be announced in coming weeks.  With all of these events there are many opportunities to volunteer.  One thing to remember when volunteering at the events this summer is to stay hydrated.  We all know how hot Texas summers can be and they just seem to be getting hotter every year. You can never drink enough water. 

So, I would urge you the next time you volunteer to always have a bottle of water with you. Also, if you feel tired or overheated talk to a supervisor or go take a break inside to cool off.  We want everyone to be safe and to have a great time at the Pavilion. See you out there!
