RBC I Grand Junction VAMC will host its first ever “Valentines for Veterans” concert featuring The Grass Roots on Thursday, Feb. 14 at the historic Avalon Theatre. Doors open at 6 p.m.
The concert is one of 14 being held at VA Medical Centers nationwide as part of the annual week-long “National Salute to Veteran Patients” celebration, which this year runs Feb. 10-16. The purpose of the celebration is to pay tribute and express appreciation to veterans, increase community awareness of the role of the VA Medical Center and encourage citizens to visit hospitalized veterans and to become involved as volunteers.
“The concert is a first for Grand Junction and we are very excited!” said Robin Maddox of voluntary services and event coordinator. “Many local organizations have contributed to its sponsoring and the evening promises to be unforgettable.”
The concert honors all veterans and in particular Gold Star Family Members (those who have lost a family member in service) and veterans who were awarded a “V” device for valor. Veterans who were awarded a Soldier’s Medal, Navy and Marine Corps Medal, Airman’s Medal or Coast Guard Medal will also be honored. Gold Star families and veterans who have received a “V” device or one of the above medals are encouraged to contact the Grand Junction VA Medical Center Volunteer Services Office at 970-244-1336.
Veterans, families of veterans and the general public are all welcome. No admission will be charged to attend this concert “because the price has already been paid” by the sacrifices of America’s veterans. Tickets will be available at the Grand Junction VA beginning Jan. 23. Limited qualities will also be available starting Jan. 25 at its satellite clinics in Craig, Glenwood Springs, Montrose and on Jan. 29. in Moab, Utah.
