PIPE Concert 2013

September 14, 2013

Heating up the ‘burg island style with Parrots of the Caribbean Concert benefiting PIPE: Providing Indoor Plumbing for Everyone.  The Parrots of the Caribean-A Salute to Jimmy Buffett. “Parrots of the Caribean is the #1 Jimmy Buffett Tribute Act in the Country…Bar None.” Parrots of the Caribbean will bring excitement, energy, and first class musicianship.  It’s a show you will not forget.  With their island costume changes it’s sure to spread the island feeling.

This concert is a fundraiser for PIPE, Providing Indoor Plumbing for Everyone.  In 2007, there were several homes still lacking indoor plumbing in the Historic Triangle.

Thanks to the efforts of the members of the Leadership Historic Triangle (LHT, now LEAD) Class of 2007 and Housing Partnerships, there are now only a few homes in our community lacking this basic necessity.  This project aims to keep continue raising money to help provide gap funding for these remaining projects, which are not fully covered by available state funds.

Today, in 2013, we still have families within the Historic Triangle that are in need of this program and we need your help to assist them.
