    Look for Julius Fucik's "The Grumbly Old Bear," with bassoon soloist Karen Basin. The Dixieland Band will play at 6:16 p.m.
    The concert is free, part of a long-standing summer tradition. The 70-piece community band is a descendent of the Ashland Brass Band, formed in 1876.
    For a little bonus Ginger Rogers' trivia, she was born July 16, 1911, in Independence, Mo. She died April 25, 1995.
