The event, held Aug. 6 at the Fulton War Memorial, featured successive rock band performances. The Fulton Lions club provided food sales with all event proceeds going to Oswego County food pantries. The Fulton club, with 60 members, is the largest and most active in their district. Lions clubs are committed to sight and hearing preservation.
