Two Western Pennsylvania bands, well known to the Cumberland area, The Vandells and Midnight Rodeo will be on stage performing a mix of classic rock, southern rock and modern country. The Vandells kick off the evening from 5 -7:30 pm, followed by Midnight Rodeo from 7:30 – 10 pm.

 The Vandells label themselves as a band from the 60s, now in our 60s, playing the 60s. The group was formed in the 1960s while attending Meyersdale Area High School and played primarily at high school dances and local bars. In the late 1960s, individual careers and military duty separated the group with two members serving together in Viet Nam.

Forty-five years later, it was suggested that the group reunite and play at their 45th class reunion. With only a few jam sessions, the Vandells were back at it again. Band members include Kevin Bungard, lead guitar/singer; Bill Legas, keyboard; Al Miller, bass; and Gene Brown, drummer.

 Midnight Rodeo plays a mixture of modern country and southern rock at venues and clubs all over the PA, MD, and WV area. They are based out of Bedford County, PA and have been playing music together for many years. They love to entertain the crowd!   Their love of music is evident at every show. Members of the band include Rick Zimmerman, lead vocals; Mark Diehl, lead guitar and vocals; Dana Corle, drums and Duane Sipe, bass guitar and vocals.

 Admission to Friday Night Live at Windsor Castle is $5/person at the door. Doors open at 5 pm. There will be a cash bar with wine and beer along with snacks for purchase. Parking is free. Windsor Castle Events Centre is located at 210 S. Centre Street, Cumberland in the former Cumberland Armory Building. For information or table reservations, call 301-722-0005.

This special public meeting will focus on community engagement and exchange. This public meeting will be held at the Career Technology Training Center on Tuesday, September 1st from 7:00PM - 9:00PM. All residents are encouraged to attend to learn more about how they can become more involved in protecting their own health and what they can do to improve existing monitoring of the Accident Dome facility.

 
At a June 23 general informational meeting, “ABOVE & UNDER THE ACCIDENT DOME”, citizens expressed concern about health effects related to hazardous air emissions at compressor stations, including the Accident facilities and storage field. At this September 1 meeting, known health problems associated with these air emissions will be reviewed. Additionally, citizens will learn about monitoring for air quality and noise and how they may become involved in safeguarding community health. 
 
Two guest speakers will open the program. Michael McCawley, Phd, will outline air emissions and air monitoring pertaining to the community. Dr. McCawley is currently serving as the Interim Chair for the Dept. of Occupational and Environmental Health Sciences at West Virginia University School of Public Health. The second presentation will be from Meleah Boyle, MPH from the University of Maryland’s Institute for Applied Environmental Health (MIAEH). She’ll be addressing monitoring and assessment of residential exposure to noise associated with natural gas compressor stations in West Virginia.  Both presentations will be followed by Q&A breakout sessions allowing guests to learn more from both Dr. McCawley and Ms. Boyle. Breakout sessions will include more in-depth discussions on Health Concerns, Citizen-Scientist Volunteer Air & Noise monitoring, and "Fracking 101” to including infrastructure and pipeline. This is a great opportunity to learn and share information about very important issues concerning public health.
