PITTSBURG —  On Saturday, the community came together for German-style beer and food, and live music at 505 to raise money for The Lord’s Diner.

The event, coordinated by the Pittsburg Noon Rotary Club, raised nearly $3,000.

“It went really, really well,” Jon Bartlow, Chair of Pittsburg Noon Rotary Rocktoberfest said. “I think it was the best year we’ve had so far.”

“The crowds throughout the evening were great and I think everyone there, including the musicians, had a really great time.”

In addition to the excitement of entertainment and raising money, it was also great to have six bands playing live music downtown, Bartlow said.

The Lord’s Diner Volunteer Coordinator Lisa Russell said the diner is appreciative for the support of the community and for the Noon Rotary for coordinating the event.

“We appreciate it, the Noon Rotary has always treated us very well, they've taken us on as their mission,” Russell said. “It’s only through people like that we are able to survive.”
