TENTH ANNUAL GOSPEL SONGFEST - The Gospel Songfest was held Sunday afternoon at the Grotto of the Redemption in West Bend. A large crowd was on hand to enjoy the gospel music of three acts, including Pure Faith, West Bend’s own Redemption Singers, and SoundTrack (pictured above), an Ames-based Christian music group. With the Knights of Columbus grilling up supper and the weather cooperating, there was no reason to look elsewhere to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon. – Lori Hall photo
