The popular “Bash on the Farm” which started back in 2002, will take a break this year after organizers had trouble securing volunteers and talent for the show. John and Cindy Wacker explained that the Bash on the Farm committee just did not have enough volunteers to help with the show. Talent was not as available as in years past and so the committee felt that without enough of either, the show would not be the kind of quality that they needed to make it worthwhile.
Cedar Rapids “Bash on the Farm” is on schedule for this year having enough of both talent and volunteer staffing. That concert is being put on by a former Forest City committee member who moved to Cedar Rapids.
