Jorstadt Castle singers to perform in Clayton

For those who remember those wonderful Jorstadt Castle (now Singer Castle) musical days in the past, you may now see Patty Mondore and the Rev. Harvey Jones in a free concert in Frink Park, Clayton NY tomorrow (Sunday, July 12, 2009) starting at 6:30 p.m. Sponsored by the Riverside Theater (as part of the Sunday Sunset Series), donations are accepted but are by no means required. Come one and all for free and bring your own lawn chairs. If the weather does not permit (but so far the forecast looks great), it will be moved to the River Community Church, 38844 Bartlett Point Road in Clayton.

Patty sang her own songs solo and played the piano at the castle for many years. Harvey Jones was the pastor for many years and also sang. Both have produced their own musical CDs.

Pictured above, from left to right: Harvey's wife Flo Jones, Patty Mondore, Wanda (Lou) Wolfe , and Harvey Jones. This picture was taken in Alexandria Bay's Swan Bay Beach Club of which Wanda is the manager and chef extraordinaire (and is a friend of both families).

Post show note: despite the unseasonal cool weather with a strong wind, shouts of "more - more!" and "encore -encore!" were heard from the crowd after Patty finished singing. Harvey also had a very strong performance.
