They did it again! Nearly twenty musically-inclined familiar faces from all over the country came back home to put on a rockin' show and raise money for local veterans. Last year, the concert drew more than 800 attendees and raised more than $50,000. While we haven't gotten an official count from last night, the crowd was definitely impressive.

The night began with a tribute to Veterans followed by a flyover. The rest of the night was made for Rock & roll and reminiscing. Proceeds from the event, held on the grounds of the former Wilbur Bills school, will benefit Welcome Home Veterans, the organization that is working to transform the former school into a place for Shiawassee County veterans and their families to call home.
