Featuring the traveling band, Los Vaqueros Hunting Club. Also preforming for us are Dave Stamey and Annie Lydon. Stamey, who is one of the most popular western entertainers working today, has been called “the Carley Russell of Western Music” by the Cowboys and Indians Magazine and the Western Horsemen Magazine declared his “Vaquero Song” to be one of the greatest Western Songs of all time. Chris Isaacs, a Western Poet, Storyteller and Humorist and three time winner of the Academy of Western Artists “Will Rogers Award”, will also be there. These incredible performers will be presented to you by our own talent, Clem Albertoni as Master of Ceremonies. Clem wrote his first poem at the age of five, he can write special poems for any occasion and is a true artist with special talents. He writes and reads on subjects of a personal nature, but we can all relate to the words he weaves. Also performing is YOSAL, Youth Orchestra for Salinas and the winners of the county libraries youth poetry contest.

Proceeds benefit the Foundation for Monterey County Free Libraries.

The Foundation for Monterey County Free Libraries, is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides funding for the 17 Monterey County Libraries, including those located in the most rural sections of our county to operate child literacy programs year-round. For more information, visit www.fmcfl.org

We raise funds through an annual author’s dinner, Cowboy Poetry and by asking foundations for grants, corporations, and individuals to join with us as partners in the quest for literacy for all children. The Foundation has contributed over $3.5 million dollars to the literacy programs since 1990.
