Annual Country Music Concert – Many of you have heard of and seen the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Division. This dedicated, volunteer unit was formed in 1974 with the purpose of educating the public on horsemanship and donating their services to Eaton County communities at public events.
In 2018 alone, the 11 active members of the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Division spent over 274 hours serving the community at events, 621 hours training their horses for the events, and 252 hours in meetings planning events and managing the business affairs of the unit for a total of 1,122 hours of volunteered time.
As you can imagine, there is a great deal of out of pocket expense associated with serving communities at these events. To offset some of the cost, for over 10 years they have sponsored an annual country music show fund raising event. This event is held in the fall and is always well-attended and very well-received.
The featured performer is always a well-known country music artist, and this year’s performer is no exception. We’re excited to have Lacey J. Dalton present to the citizens of Eaton County an unforgettable evening of great country music performing her 16 Top 20 Billboard country hits.
The concert is Wednesday, October 2, 2019, at 7:00 p.m. at the Charlotte Performing Arts Center (CPAC). Tickets are $20 in advance for a single, $35 for two in advance, and a special WHOLE FAMILY ticket is only $50. All proceeds for this event stay strictly local and benefit the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Division.
For tickets and concert information, call the ticket hotline at 800-205-7174 or visit www.wolverineproductions.org. If you are called asking about purchasing tickets, the representative will tell you they are calling on behalf of the Eaton County Sheriff’s Office Mounted Division.
Yours in Public Safety,
Sheriff Tom Reich
