The Summer Concerts are almost over…..this is the second to the last one of the Pop Saturdays at Burton Chase Park. This Saturday singer/songwriter Aimee Mann struts her stuff…..she is wonderful. You may remember her from the movie Magnolia, where the music was brought to the forefront and the singer was actually part of the film. Her music has been in countless films. How cool is it to be able to watch her live for FREE!

I can speak from personal experience, since I am also a patient of Dr. Garber. I used to have to receive allergy shots every month to deal with my allergies….Yes I have a cat. However, I no longer have to waste time and money with monthly shots. I highly recommend Dr. Garber.  Take advantage of this FREE chance to hear him speak. He really knows what he is talking about.
