‘God and Country’ concert to be held in New Richmond

Sounds of hymns, patriotic songs, and prayers will echo across the mighty Ohio on Friday, July 5 as the New Richmond community celebrates this great event.

The public is invited to attend the annual “God and Country” concert to be held at the Bandstand on Susanna Way.

The official program begins at 7 p.m. and features local soloists as well as the Community Choir, directed by Vickie Hale. At 6:30 there will be a musical prelude.

Area pastors will be praying for America’s leaders, her people, all who have suffered so terribly in recent months from tornadoes, wildfires, and hurricanes.

America’s true ‘heroes’ the veterans are invited to this concert.

“We’d like to recognize them and show our deepest appreciation for their sacrifice,” says Libbie Bennett, County chair for the National Day of Prayer Task Force. “As we know all gave some and some gave all.”

To celebrate America’s 237th birthday, there will be red-white-blue birthday cupcakes and cookies following the concert. Those will be provided by members of the Community Choir.

Guests are reminded to bring their own chairs to this outdoor service.
