Goodnight, McMinnville!

    Main Street LIVE! did it again with a great performance schedule!  There was a bit of disappointment with the weather raining out two and a half concerts (Entice's second hour was scuttled) back to back.  However, the Joe Harvey Band did get rescheduled for August 14th and went off without a hitch.  Help yourself to browse few pictures by clicking here to see pictures from the June performances and by clicking here or by clicking on the logo above to see some pictures from the July performances.

    Security Federal Savings Bank is very proud to be a part of Main Street LIVE! and would like to thank all of the sponsors and everyone that helped to make this year's events so fantastic!
