The J. Frank Troy Booster Club hosted its annual summer picnic on July 14 at the Walbridge Park Shelter House and featured lunch, raffles, games and live music for the more than 75 guests in attendance.
The afternoon’s events also included speeches by local elected and government officials such as Lucas County Recorder Michael Ashford, Lucas County Board of Elections Director LaVera Scott and representatives of the Lucas County Commissioners and Toledo City Council.
However much the luncheon guests enjoyed the speeches, the food and the raffles, the highlight of the afternoon was the music provided by Bobby G and Friends Band. The blues and R & B standards definitely heightened the excitement of the afternoon.
Bobby G has been on the blues scene in Toledo for about 50 years. Originally from a small town in Mississippi, he was inspired by juke joint singers in the area. He was been working with his Friends Band since 2010.
