Bertie Celebration - "Salute to Soldiers"
The Bertie County Arts Council is looking for names of Bertie men and women serving in all branches of the military to be honored at their Salute to Soldiers! This will be held at Hope Plantation on May 21st from 6:00 to 9:00 PM
The North Carolina National Guard Band will perform at the celebration. The full band, including the Patriots, who perform big band and jazz music; the Minute Men, who perform music from the 50s to the 80s; and the concert band will offer every kind of music the public could want.
The celebration will allow the public to show its appreciation for the sacrifices made on behalf of America. We owe them our freedom.
Bertie County Arts Council is asking the public to help spread the word and get members of the military and their families to the gathering. Military service people with I.D. will be admitted free. This includes spouse and dependents. For others, there will be a $3 admittance fee ($5 at the gate) to help defray expenses for the evening celebration.
There will be pork dinners and homemade desserts for sale during the concert. As part of the effort to make this a family event, no alcohol will be allowed. The audience is asked to bring lawn chairs.
Anyone with a family member or friend serving his/her country in any military capacity is asked to call Bertie County Arts Council, 794-9402, or email us. If no one is in BCAC office when you call, please leave a message with name, service and rank.
Please help us identify military personnel from Bertie County so those names can be listed in the program.
