HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The Claiborne and Festival South teamed up with the Alzheimer's Association to host "A Salute To Fathers" celebration Sunday, June 17 at the Claiborne Retirement community in Hattiesburg.
This Father's Day celebration was put together to raise money, awareness, and support those living with Alzheimer's.
The event featured food, dancing, and a USO-style concert performed by the Victory Belles.
Howard Fromkin, one of many fathers at the event, said the USO performance brought back great memories.
"It was patriotic, Fromkin said. "It took everybody back to the Hay Days of the 40s."
Artistic Director of Festival South, Mike Lopinto says it's always an honor to host events these and honor fathers who've served in the military and those who're just everyday fathers.
