The 6th annual Military Tribute Concert at the Iowa State Fair was another HUGE success in 2018! The weather was hot on August 13th, but it was a beautiful day, and we were so thankful for another meaningful event to honor our US military active members and veterans.
A 70-voice choir, 40-instrument orchestra, and 20-voice children's choir sang and played a variety of military songs, including some favorites that the audience could sing along to. As always, one of our favorites is the "Armed Forces Medley", where we honor all of the attending veterans by playing each Branch's theme song.
As part of our mission, participants of our group purchased and assembled toiletries into 200 "towel caddies" that we will be delivering to the Veterans Hospital in Des Moines on on the near future.
