Lots of oldies but goodies kind of music will be in the air at Froehlich's Classic Corner, 501 Washington St., Steubenville, next Saturday when Quinn Memorial AME Church offers up its second installment of "Retro Night."
Expect to hear some of "the greatest hits from back in the day" performed by local residents showcasing their vocal talents during this fundraiser March 15 where proceeds benefit the church's lay organization.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with the sit-down dinner beginning at 6 p.m. and so, too, the music.

The ticket deadline is Tuesday.
