Music filled the air last weekend at three Bertram venues

If you are a music lover you probably attended at least one of the open mike/sing-alongs held in the Bertram area last weekend. There was music at Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Mahomet Christian Church and at the home of Greg and Kim Johnston. The last two also featured home-made ice cream, so the sound of music was extra sweet!
