The driveways along Maplewood and Ballad Drive in Sun City West were jumping as Sentimental Journey founder Karen Ellinwood and musical partner Joyce Bowlby put on a couple of driveway shows along with guest singer Dan Bentley.
Friends and neighbors brought lawn chairs to the sidewalks and adjacent driveways or sat in their golf cars, keeping the recommended social distance while enjoying the music.
Attendees were asked to donate to the local food banks and due to the generosity of those attending, 324 pounds of food and $117 were delivered the next day to Valley View Food Bank along with $100 to St. Mary’s Food Bank.
The concerts are not being advertised in advance in order to keep the crowd to less than 50 neighbors. Keep an eye out for an invitation to a concert on certain streets.
