This year’s Brookville Community Days, hosted by the Brookville Volunteer Fire Company, will wrap up on Saturday with a performance by the band Diamond Rio. Diamond Rio is also a national sponsor of the Big Brothers Big Sisters program, raising over $1.5 million to aid the cause.

As such, BBBS directors have selected two matches from Jefferson, Elk and McKean counties to attend the concert, where they will get to meet the band members and the kids will receive an autographed Diamond Rio banner.

Pictured with one such banner are the Jefferson County matches who will be attending: (from left) Rick Tote and Khiler Constantino, and Estella Kay Hughes and Carol Schuckers.

If you’d like to be in attendance as well, head to http://bvfc2.net for information and tickets.

However, if you’re not much of a concert-goer, there are still plenty of other events and activities going on at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds for this year’s Community Days.

The festival starts on Wednesday and continues through the concert, so make sure to stop by and see what’s going on.
