Culture Connection Kicks Off Day of Caring Events


The final Culture Connection concert of the summer Thursday served as a de-facto opening ceremony for the United Way and Price City’s Day of Caring.

The event was designed to honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a day of service. The day of service will be Saturday throughout Price.

United Way representative Bill Maikranz said, “By working together we can accomplish even more.”

Maikranz said the United Way had already collected more than 100 volunteers to help with several projects around the area.

Kirsy Woodhouse and Sherrie Vlamakis opened the concert with a handful of songs before turning the time over to headlining band Dizzy Desoto.

The band performed many songs from rock and roll’s “Golden Era”. Dizzy Desoto also performed an original song entitled “Blue Tattoo”.

The band supplied hula-hoops that got the kids out of their seats and inspired several adults, including Price City Mayor Joe Piccolo, to get up and dance.

Price City Fire Chief Paul Bedont shared a story about 9/11, and Kirsty Woodhouse sang “The Star Spangled Banner” to open the event.
