(So. of Lake City on Hwy. 63)

From the RW Beagle and the inbox from Steve Schwen, Oak Center:

There will be a benefit for Dawn Husbyn from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday at the Oak Center General Store. The owner of Rhythm and Brew Coffeehouse in Lake City is battling cancer, and donations of any amount will go toward her medical expenses.

An afternoon of music is planned. The lineup includes Lee Mensinger, John Reed and Acoustic Overdrive, Bill Cagley, Tim Fast, the roots duo Deb and Lee and Karl Burke.

Husbyn and her husband, Dale, have welcomed all these area musicians over the years, Mensinger said. “The music community owes them a longtime debt of gratitude for their continuing support of live acoustic music.”
