Eight months. That’s how long it had been since the last Life 101.9 event. Maybe you were there for Newsboys United and Mandisa at the Paramount Theatre in Cedar Rapids on Sunday, February 8th. It was a great night of music! None of us could have known at that moment what the next eight months would bring. The COVID-19 pandemic that changed our world forever. The August 10th derecho that brought unprecedented destruction to portions of Eastern Iowa. 2020 has been a year like no other.
Over the last eight months, every event Life 101.9 is usually a part of has been cancelled. Concerts, as well as station and community events had to be put off until another time. It’s been a long wait! I think that’s why it was so much fun to pack up our gear and head out to the first of three T-Shirt Tuesday events last week! Members of the Life 101.9 team, with masks, gloves and lots of hand sanitizer set up at River of Life Church in Cedar Rapids handing out t-shirts to dozens of people who participated in this drive-thru style, socially distanced event. If you were one of them, thanks for coming!
If you missed out, we have a couple more chances for you to pick up a free Life 101.9 t-shirt as well as some other goodies. Today we will be in the parking lot of Word of Life Church in Dubuque from 4:00-6:00pm, and October 20th we will set up in the parking lot of Cedar Valley Community Church in Waterloo. Please join us at one of these upcoming events!
We are grateful for the opportunity to walk through this crazy time in Eastern Iowa with you. Thank you for being a part of the Life 101.9 family!
