Free concert offered at Silver Bay Vets Home

Residents of the Minnesota Veterans Home in Silver Bay and the public will be treated to a free concert at the facility’s bandshell Tuesday, July 17.

The Boundary Waters Boys, an Ely-based band, will perform a concert, “Remember When — Songs of the 50s, 60s and 70s,” at 6:30 p.m.

The concert is part of the Silver Bay facility’s Summer Concert Series and is arranged by the Spiritwood Foundation in Ely. Its mission is to raise not only awareness regarding Alzheimer’s Disease, but also critical funds that support community organizations, programs and facilities working with the afflicted and their families.

The Foundation sponsors benefit concerts, silent auctions, memory walks and any other fundraising events that help individuals needing caregiver respite; veterans and their families dealing with Alzheimer's and dementia; and organizations needing to build assisted living facility additions or add programs for residents.
