On Sunday, August 29, Ukulele player and songwriter Aaron Lee will roll into the MINT Lounge and Tapas in the Rondout at 1 West Strand, Kingston to perform a concert to benefit Healthy Kingston for Kids Project, which is a partnership led by Cornell Cooperative Extension Ulster County (CCEUC).

Lee is promoting community building with the Ukulele by Bicycle Tour. Lee is riding his bicycle across the Northeast and carrying everything that he needs. Lee will be performing a series of concerts in communities at various venues along the way to promote the causes of living simply and sustainably, acting locally, and the energy of bringing a group of people together to support a common cause.

 The concert is FREE, but donations will be accepted. Donations will directly support the GIS Community Mapping project of the Healthy Kingston for Kids initiative.  The GIS Community Mapping Team consists of volunteers with GPS units and “computer techies” who are mapping the walkability and bikeability of Kingston.  The maps will be used to identify priority transportation projects that will improve the environment for child pedestrians and bicyclists.  The Mapping Team is in need of laptops for a mobile GIS lab that will share the maps with the community!

  This family fun event is guaranteed to make you laugh and leave you with a song in your head and a smile on your face!
