MECHANICSBURG – The Dye Family will present an informal evening of music on Saturday, Aug. 10, at the 1858 Meeting House in Mechanicsburg.

Cousins from the east and west coasts will meet in Mechanicsburg to play together for the first time, and everyone is invited to the reunion. The 7 p.m. concert will include an impromptu family orchestra, a gospel sing-along led by Daniel Dye and the Miller Road Band, some a cappella hymn singing, and will feature cousins from California, the Shanks String Ensemble.

The event is free; donations will be accepted. All proceeds from donations and concessions will go toward ongoing restoration of the 1858 Meeting House by the Champaign County Preservation Alliance. The Meeting House is located at 43 E. Sandusky St.
