Wednesday marks the third free concert at Ryan Hummert Memorial Park this summer. At 6 p.m., Hudson and the HooDoo Cats will take the stage.
The band calls itself a JumpSwinginRockinBoogieBluesaBilly band, as noted on the website. That means "swingin' shufflin' blues, 50's rock and roll and rockabilly, and medium tempo dance music."
While attendees enjoy the sounds of the show, a few city officials will be handing out postcards that read, "Save the Maplewood Post Office."
The Maplewood Post Office is under review as a possible closure to save money for the U.S. Postal Service.
In an effort to fight the closure, Maplewood officials printed 1,000 postcards to pass out to residents and business owners. The cards will actually function as a type of petition that city officials will submit to the postal service.
A community meeting has been scheduled from 3-5 p.m. on September 13 at the Maplewood Public Library. The city will submit the cards at the meeting, City Manager Marty Corcoran said.
Concert attendees may fill out the cards during the show or return them to Maplewood City Hall later.
The concert series is sponsored by the Maplewood Community Betterment Foundation.
