Larry Childers was the kind of man who knew everyone. He believed in being involved. He supported others and his community. You could see him on any given day, at the courthouse where he worked. He loved God, Family and Country. He had a passion for politics. You could see him at any and every election working the polls.Larry was a Godly man. A family man. A friend to all who knew him. A military, man who served this great country.
It is for these reasons that some of those that knew Larry the best wanted to do something in his name. Contribute, make a difference and touch the lives of those in the very community he loved in doing it. And so, a benefit concert in the memory of Larry Childer's was born.
"Jammin at the Junction" will take place on Saturday September 26, 2009.
It's something that we plan to make an annual event to benefit the causes that were so near and dear to his heart.

Tonight I got a look at the draft design for the T-shirts for the Poker Motorcycle Run. The t-shirts are being designed by artist Dave Rankin (Dave is husband to my new friend, Jennifer of Wildflower Wax. He also went to school with my brother!). I cannot think of a better word to say than AMAZING! I cannot wait to see what he does for the concert t-shirt. He is one amazing talent!
I will give more information as I have it available, including the website when it is up and running.
On this note.....Today's Giveaway....
The Bo Bice CD, "See the Light". I gave my personal review of the album here.

What is your favorite song (does not have to be a Bo song)
What is your favorite charity and why?
I will pick a winner from all of the comments and post the winner on July 24th.
