  • Pre-game fun with the Globetrotters

    Harlem Globetrotters pre-game activities. March 2016. It was a date with one of my grandsons and a very special evening for both of us as it was the first time I’d taken him to an event his own without his two brothers. He loved the pre- game and the game. I bought him a basketball that night which he dribbled to the school bus and played with at recess every day till the end of the school year. I had seen the Globetrotters a few times previously. One special time was at the Aud when I was a cheerleader at Eastwood and we were asked to come and be a cheering squad for them. We had a blast. - Susan Gentile

    The first show I took my Granddaughter Adalyn to see was Paw Patrol in 2018. She was a bit disappointed that we were not sitting on the floor but soon changed when the show started. That's the great thing about The Aud; every seat is a great seat. She had such a fun time that we went again the following year. I look forward to lots more memories shared with her at The Aud. - Tracy Macdonald

    We have a Ladies Night/Weekend a few times a year. When I heard Hedley was going to be playing on a Saturday night I quickly called everyone. We had seven of us and a couple of the ladies drove 2 – 3+ hours in the snow to attend the concert. It was a fantastic night not just because of the music but because The Aud is such a wonderful venue to bring friends together. I look forward to lots more concerts and events with the ladies in the future. - Tracy Macdonald
