The Shawville Lions held their annual country jamboree this past weekend, attracting over 200 trailers and RVs and an even bigger crowd for some foot-stomping classic crooners.
With 20 acts set to play at the Armstrong Heritage Farm, plus Thursday night’s open mic sessions, guests were treated to as much country music as they could possibly hope for.
The only thing missing, for the Lions at least, was a crucial member from years past.
