Another big corporate thanks to the University of Jamaica-Pamela J Chance for renewing as a corporate sponsor again this year. Pamela wrote and told us that she had purchased the high school in Jamaica, IA about 10 years ago. She had a bar built in the bleacher area and can seat about 200. There is another bar on the site-The Do Drop. It opens at 5 PM during the week and at 4 PM on weekends. Do drop in at 403 3rd Ave in Jamaica and tell Pamela hello-Sounds like a place to have some Blues goin’ on, huh? The gym can be rented out during the warm season for only $200.
