The 3rd Annual Homegrown Music Festival sponsored by the Foscoe Ruritan Club is coming on Saturday, August 12th to the Foscoe-Grandfather Community Park. (11:00 am – 5:00 pm)
The Foscoe Ruritan Club was chartered in June 2011 by several community minded people who wanted to help others in need. Through the past six years the club has raised money by hosting special events such as the upcoming Homegrown Music Festival.
The funds raised are used to help with needs in the area. For example, each December the club fills and distributes boxes with food to provide a healthy meal for around 20 families. The club has purchased fuel and paid electric bills for other families or individuals. In addition to these type donations, the club also grants scholarships for students heading off to college.
This year’s music festival has a great line-up of local musicians:
Adam Church, The High Country Boomers, Junulaska Choir, New Covenant, Amantha Mill, and Blue Country.
Craft vendors are invited to attend and set up at the festival for a small fee. For more information about being a vendor please contact Diane at 828-964-6322
Foscoe Ruritan Club will be cooking hamburgers and hot dogs which will be for sale along with the fixings and some great desserts.
