LEAD Event this Saturday
This weekend, a group of Coast residents are asking everyone to come together and honor those who put their lives on the line for us every day.
Law Enforcement Appreciation Day will take place tomorrow at the Jackson County Civic Center. “LEAD” will honor officers from all six coastal counties.
There will be something for the whole family including a free meal for the men and women in blue along with their families at 3 p.m.
The doors will open at 6 to the public and when the sun starts to go down, local bands will take the stage. Cole Jones is performing at the event. He said, “Around 6 o’clock that evening, we’re going to be doing a live concert. It’ll be me and a guy named Derek Norsworthy. You can expect a lot of original songs. I’m a country singer. Derek Norsworthy is also a country singer. He’s a songwriter also. It’s going to be a lot of fun. It’ll be both of our bands. We’re going to go up there and do the best that we can for everybody.”
The VFW will also be on hand for a ringing of the bell ceremony to honor fallen officers.
