Come early for Town trivia, prizes, and great conversation.

Also performing an Original Song created just for Jerry’s visit will be Dave Scott Crowe. He is the elementary school music teacher at Pine Lake Preparatory School in Mooresville. He also heads Imusination Academy, an organization dedicated to instilling in children the confidence to get on stage. He lives in Davidson with his wife, son, and daughter and loves when he bites into a chunk of cherry when eating a pint of Cherry Garcia.
