Saturday October 29, 6 p.m. - In the wake of the devastation of
Tropical Storm Irene, the Christian community has been reaching out
with support at the grass-roots level with much-needed food,
cleaning supplies, shelters, and the back-breaking work of cleaning
and rebuilding devastated homes throughout Vermont. Samaritan's
Purse from Boone, North Carolina, arrived in Rutland in early
September with their Disaster Relief team and a crew of volunteers
from across the country who have been joined by local volunteers
from around the state to help Vermonters rebuild their lives.
Three veteran Christian bands will be playing a fund-raising
concert on Saturday, October 29th at the Roadside Chapel in
Rutland, to support Samaritan's Purse and their recovery ministry.
Performing live will be September Rain from Littleton, New
Hampshire; The All-Star Blues Band with former members of CrossRoad
from Williston, Vermont; and local Rutland band, Witness. They'll
be joined by singer-songwriter Michelle Pulver of Brattleboro whose
song, "Silver Lining," has been released as a fund-raiser for
relief efforts in the Brattleboro area.
The concert will begin at 6 p.m. (doors will open at 5 p.m.).
Admission is free and a free-will offering will be collected, all
of which go to Samaritan's Purse.
Don't miss this memorable night of encouragement, inspiration,
folk, rock and blues.
