45th Annual Fred VanHook Gospel Music Fest
November 3 / 6:30 pm

Everyone in the middle Tennessee area who knows much about gospel music knows the name "Fred VanHook". Brother Fred has been involved in gospel music for most of his life, from leading the music at several churches to singing with his and other gospel groups over the years. The Gospel Music Festival, celebrating it's 45th year, was a joint endeavor of Fred and Kenneth Whitehead several years ago,and has been responsible for bringing together some of the best gospel singers to Lebanon, TN since it's inception. Fred alone has kept the festival going in the years since Kenneth's passing and I'm sure that Kenneth looks down approvingly from Heaven on how their idea has grown into this yearly highly anticipated event. Mercy Road takes great pleasure in announcing our participation for this years event and is looking forward to being with brother Fred, his group, and whomever will be on the program. We know it's going to be great, it always is! It's always a treat to sing to in our own back yard and we look forward to seeing everyone there.

Tickets are $15 each or $12 each for a group of four or more people. Tickets are available at Century 21 West Main Realty at 1104 W. Main St. in Lebanon or at the CedarStone Bank locations in Lebanon and Mt. Juliet.

Special Screening: Summer of '67

About the Movie
Based on real life events, Summer of '67  brings to life the turbulent times of the sixties and the struggles faced by the men and women impacted by the Vietnam War. Young wife and mother Milly (Rachel Schrey) is forced to live with her mother-in-law (Mimi Sagadin) while her husband Gerald (Cameron Gilliam) is away on the USS Forrestal. Kate (Bethany Davenport) must choose between Peter (Christopher Dalton) her high school sweetheart and Van (Sam Brooks) her new hippie boyfriend. Ruby Mae (Sharonne Lanier) finally finds true love with Reggie (Jerrold Edwards) only to have him whisked away by the draft. Each woman faces the question of whether or not their man will return, and even if he does, will life as they know it ever be the same?
Summer of '67 is based in part on writer/director Sharon Wilharm's parents. Her dad was aboard the USS Forrestal when it caught fire on July 29, 1967. She grew up listening to her parents talking about the Vietnam War, and wanted to pass along to younger generations the experiences and sacrifices made by the men and women of the 1960's.
