On Saturday, April 27, during the Santa Maria Valley Strawberry Festival, there will be A Salute to Our Active Military and Veterans at the Santa Maria Fairpark.  It is a tribute to all those who have served.  The tribute will include FREE tickets to all active duty personnel and veterans to a concert by Rockie Lynne.  Lynne’s newest album, Songs for Soldiers is a collection of original songs.  He has appeared nationally on Good Morning America and at the Grand Ole Opry.  He is an Ambassador for the USO and an advocate for his fellow veterans.  Much of his charitable efforts are in support of the men and women in the U.S. Armed Forces.

The Santa Maria Fairpark is looking for additional sponsors to help defray the cost of A Salute to Our Active Military and Veterans Concert.  If you are interested in helping with a sponsorship, contact Bob Hatch, Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce President/CEO at chmbrchief@aol.com, or at (805) 925-2403, ext. 825.
