Huge drum sale after the circle

Here’s a great chance to get your own
instruments for future drum circles at prices you can afford!
Immediately following this year’s Mountain Fair opening drum circle
at 4 p.m. on Friday, there will be a gigantic sale of all instruments
used in the circle. The sale will be held under the pie & cake
judging tent near the picnic shelter and will last for only 45
minutes. “Choose what you want and pay what you think is a fair
price,” said drum circle founder/CCAH founder and Mother of the
Fair, Laurie Loeb. Loeb said she needs to divest her arsenal of drums
and percussion instruments and wants the community to have them in
order to carry on the tradition of community drumming. “Please help
me get out from under this joyous load that I can no longer carry,”
she told The Sun. Purchases are cash or check only. For more
information, e-mail Loeb at
