Tribute to the Troops, a multi-media event is slated for the Long Lake Town Hall on Monday, May 30th at 4pm.
This special collection of personal remembrances of Adirondack veterans from Long Lake, Indian Lake and Tupper Lake will be featured at a concert performed Memorial Day weekend by Peggy Lynn.
Peggy Lynn, singer, songwriter and arts educator brings an infectious enthusiasm to all her endeavors. With a sultry, yet powerful alto voice, Peggy gives a clear message of the passion underlying her songs. While her style and range give meaning and feeling to all her work, her most powerful message, her passion, is for the contributions and burdens of women. Peggy ranges from folksy to blues with equal ease, alone or harmonizing with others.
Local producers with cameras, notepads and infectious enthusiaum interviewed 19 veterans from Long Lake, Indian Lake and Tupper Lake for a personal look into their military service.
So many stories, and so many memories. The collection has been edited together and will be shared in concert with Peggy Lynn coming to you in Indian Lake, Tupper Lake and Long Lake.
Long Lake hosts this concert tribute on Memorial Day, May 30th at 4pm at the Long Lake Town Hall. Tickets for Art Center members are $10 and vets are free. Don’t miss history in the making.
