— It was a party at­mos­phere in the cen­ter of town Satur­day af­ter­noon as the Ris­ing Sun Arts Al­liance hosted its Sec­ond Satur­day event, this time fea­tur­ing a con­cert by One-Eyed Jacks.

Patty Robin­son found she couldn’t sit still as the lo­cal band with a grow­ing fol­low­ing per­formed clas­sic rock from the stage across from Ris­ing Sun Town Hall. The Joppa woman found a shady spot and danced.

“This is my mu­sic,” Robin­son said, thor­oughly en­joy­ing One- Eyed Jacks.

Shel­ley Leis­hear, chair­woman of the al­liance, said the idea be­hind Sec­ond Satur­day was to be dif­fer­ent from the First Fri­day sched­ule other towns and or­ga­ni­za­tions host. Each month the al­liance of­fers some type of event, from gallery shows to craft­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties.

Maria Bo­gia from North East sat on the dec­o­ra­tive wall in front of Sun Phar­macy and lis­tened to the band.

“I think they’re good,” Bo­gia said, adding she learned of Sec­ond Satur­day on Face­book.

Along with the mu­sic,

RIS­ING SUN

Vanessa Sam­mons sits still while Katie Eisen­huth, a Ris­ing Sun High School cheer­leader, paints a princess crown on her arm. Piper Felty, 10, holds onto an over­sized stick of side­walk chalk while dec­o­rat­ing the pave­ment in front of Ris­ing Sun Town Hall.

Kilby Cream sold ice cream and Elk Mt. BBQ served hot foods and cold

so­das.

When they went on a break, One-Eyed Jacks front­man Art Cib­rian or­dered the bar­be­cued beef and mac- n- cheese plat­ter.

“This is so good,” Cib­rian said.

Ris­ing Sun High School cheer­lead­ers sold candy and face- paint­ing to raise money for the squad. The young ladies need to raise $ 300 to pur­chase the cus­tom hair bows they will wear in com­pe­ti­tion. An Aug. 13 car wash at Dol­lar Gen­eral will also raise funds for the var­sity and ju- nior var­sity teams’ needs.

Any­one wish­ing to help the cheer­lead­ers can send an email to msi­monovitch@ ccps. org

Bracelet mak­ing is the Au­gust of­fer­ing for Sec­ond Satur­day.
