From bikers to kids, everyone can play a role at the third annual Veterans Concert in North East.
The free concert is set for Saturday, August 6 from 2-8 p.m., and will be held at North East VFW Post 6027, just south of town at 815 Turkey Point Road. The slate of performers includes Up All Night, Out Of The Blue, and special guest Modern Band.
Cecil Holmes is one of the organizers of this event. He explained that the idea for an outdoor concert was born three years ago.
All proceeds from the sale of food and drink benefit North East VFW and their support of local veteran programs. Funds will specifically pay for wheelchairs, walkers, and more for Perry Point VAMC.
The Flag Walk will have children making their way along sidewalks from East Cecil Avenue to the VFW. Children will hold American flags during the walk. The North East Boys and Girls Club has already signed on to participate in the Flag Walk. Anyone interested in having their child participate may call 443-720-8473.
A $10 per rider Bike Run runs from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. The bike run will originate at Woodside Tavern in Delaware and Elkton American Legion.
