June 4….Charlie Robison in Concert - As with all devoted songwriters, Charlie Robison writes from a perspective that draws from and speaks to larger matters and issues within the human experience and life in these times. And as the titles of his latest album indicate, even if this album is to a notable degree about and informed by the end of his marriage, there's something different and more at work here. "Beautiful Day" is an album of deep and rich emotional and musical content that anyone who has ever lived, loved and lost can find themselves within as well as experience what Robison has been through. And all of us find a redemption and the prospect of new beginnings by the time the record ends, and find ourselves better, wiser and stronger thanks to it all. Please contact the box office at 806-762-3233 to reserve tickets. Reserved seating. Cactus Theater, 1812 Buddy Holly Avenue; 8 p.m.

There will be opportunities to view the documentary D-Day Remembered, Greatest Generation’s C-47, Southern Cross, Commemorative Air Force’s C-60, Good Time Gal, and military vehicles. There will also be a children’s activity in which you can design your own model of an amphibious assault vessel and test it out under enemy fire. Sail your boat across water and try not to be sunk! During the ceremonies John W. McCullough will do a presentation entitled “The First D-Day: The Raid on Dieppe - August 19, 1942". It will tell the story of the first attack that the Allied forces made against Hitler’s Fortress Europe nearly two years before D-DAY on June 6, 1944. The attack was led by almost 5,000 Canadian troops, over 1,000 British troops, and 50 US Army Rangers. British tanks and fighter planes were used in the assault against the beaches and port city of Dieppe, France located in High Normandy. The attack was a disaster from the beginning. The element of surprise was lost in the pre-dawn hours and German resistance was much heavier than expected. However, this pivotal battle taught the Allied leaders a very important lesson: never try to invade a fortified port city again. Instead, the Allies chose to attack the open beaches of Lower Normandy where resistance was much lighter. The presentation will be based upon historical works, newspaper clippings, and photographs and information from his trip to the Dieppe Memorial Museum in May, 2014 during D-DAY 70. Admission is free all day Saturday, June 6 and Sunday, June 7. Silent Wings Museum, 6202 N. I-27. The museum will be open from 10a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
