The definition of beneficial...
One of the things that defines a community is a get-together. Moab has a vibrant calendar of events — car show, art show, music festival, folk festival, rodeo, Jeep Safari, the Christmas parade, etc. I would like to see more, not fewer, of these programs.
The Friday night music series that started last year brought out a diverse and enthusiastic audience. Perhaps the neighbors should attend and enjoy the festivities instead of complaining.
We all benefit from the creativity and commitment of the sponsors.
