I want to acknowledge the amazing contributions of our local musical artists Alan and Valerie Brown, and their sons Wyatt and Garret.

The Bar M was a great venue for many, many years and hosted countless other groups. Alan and Valerie are great citizens and have performed without pay at countless weddings and funerals. They worked so hard to bring joy to people from all over the world.

I feel blessed to have been at many shows and helped out when needed.

Huge thanks from the von Zastrow family for all they give back to our community. We wish great happiness, health and success for the amazing Brown Family. With love and eternal friendship.

—The von Zastrow family
