The Mountain Grove Central Business District Association and the local business community want to take this opportunity to thank their local firefighters for the tremendous job they have done to protect the community, by honoring them at a free ‘Concert On The Square’ at 7 p.m. on July 26. The ‘Railers,’ a popular group from Nashville, have ties to Mountain Grove and asked their management to allow them to detour through Mountain Grove while they are on tour. They recently found a date that would work, July 26.

Two of the band members, Jonathan and Jordan Lawson, are the sons of Kerry Lawson and Marilyn (Peebles) Lawson, who grew up in Mountain Grove. Kerry and Marilyn’s families still live here, with a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins. The ‘Railers’ have signed with Warner Nashville/Atlantic Records. They have played with and opened for bands such as Sarah Evans and Josh Turner.

Liz Citron, a volunteer member of the Mountain Grove Central Business District, Association, said “We are so fortunate to be able to have a band of this caliber to play on our square, at a price that we can afford to offer as free concert for the community. This event has come together very quickly and we are still finalizing some of the details. As a volunteer organization, our goal is to host free events for our community and bring business to our town. We want to make our downtown a place where residents and visitors want to shop.”

The local sponsors of this event are Dugger Trash Service, First Home Bank, Hawkins Home and Lawn, KELE 92.5 The Grove, Richards Brothers, Mountain Grove News-Journal, Mountain Grove Pharmacy, Meadowbrook Natural Foods, Super Lube, American Family Insurance, and United Country Real Estate.

No traffic will be allowed on the square for the evening so plan to bring your lawn chair and be on the square the evening of July 26.
