First time in nine years that I have ever had the opportunity to attend. I had a great time listening to the music and bidding on the great "stuff" ... I won a great yellow Adirondack Chair ... I love it. What a great event for the city. It is a shame that more people did not attend this year. It must be discouraging. I hope Rockin' Docs will continue. It is a wonderful fundraiser for a great cause.
