Growing Stronger Together Concert

3705 State Route 1380
Powderly, KY,
Free

The Growing Stronger Together Concert event is set for Friday, May 20th, 2022 at the Muhlenberg County Agriculture and Convention Center. The event starts at 5:30 pm and gates open at 4:00 pm and admission is FREE! There will be some bleacher seating available but attendees are encouraged to bring their lawn chairs.

The idea for the event was hatched out of a desire to honor and gather the community of Bremen and all those that have been affected and touched by the tragic December tornado. It will be a celebration of how the community and the countless volunteers and friends that met and came together like never before to provide support to each other.

The event will feature:

Dove release ceremony honoring the 11 Muhlenberg Countians who perished during the December 10th tornado.

Monetary Donation Drive – Bremen Tornado Supply Center

National Anthem by Ashley Mefford, accomplished local musician
