The Patton-Crosswhite VFW, Post 6975, is hosting an all-day event on Saturday with something for everyone. This inaugural event consists of Live Music, special guest speakers, delicious food, a silent auction, plenty of entertainment, and a very special surprise!!! There will be vendors on site and, really, entertainment for all. It kicks off at noon and goes all day and into the evening. That night Ricky Lee and Dr. Wes Harris are debuting and releasing a new song. The key thing to remember is that all proceeds go back to our Veterans in our local community!
The music takes place in the newly updated and renamed Maddies Hall at the Patton-Crosswhite VFW Post 6975. They are located at 16th and State in Bristol. Maddies Hall is named for Stephen Maddies who lost his life in service to our country in Iraq in 2007. This hall has a lot of history attached to it. Back in the day, Patsy Cline, among many others, performed on this very stage. It holds 750 people and has been updated with new lighting and PA equipment. The public is always welcome.
The VFW is in the midst of expanding their offerings. For instance, Shooter is coming in September. They have the Southern Mama comedy tour making a stop here. They host a bike night on Fridays at 6:00.
Tickets are only a $10 donation for the Salute to Veterans, and you’re going to have a lot of fun for that small amount! Open to everyone in our community, not just veterans; but if you know one bring them! See you out there.
