Despite pea soup fog, the Coloradas played a great show, and the people who made it gave generously to support vitims of Hurrican Sandy. Nikki Licata and her crack baking team raised hundreds of dollars through sugar! Cory Thompson and Beth Sarber mc'ed, and Alyssa Marini took photos of everyone having a good time. We had displays from different UE sections, as well as information from guests who manage disaster preparedness in Waldo county.
