Join us for the 7th annual Memorial Day Community Celebration as we commemorate the many heroes who have fallen for our freedom. In addition to a time of honor for our veterans, first responders, and active duty military, events for the young and young-at-heart have been scheduled, including a classic car show, live concerts, entertainment for children, and much, much more!

 Artist Line-Up

The Brandenberger Family – The Brandenberger Family has been playing music together since 2010 when Angela began taking classical violin lessons. Alex soon followed on the banjo, Bethany with her mandolin, and Melanie on stand up base and dobro. The band features Junior Graber’s tenor, Swoop Wagler’s high baritone, and Victor Brandenberger as lead singer and rhythm guitar. An Amish family, the group is tight knit and a bit shy of the public eye. Videos of their live performances can be found on Facebook by searching “Angela Brandenberger.”

John Schmid – John is the founder and director of Common Ground Ministries. The ministry is based in Berlin, Ohio, with a focus on prisons in the Ohio Corrections System. In a typical year, John ministers in more than 50 prisons, 30 churches, four to five camps, six evangelistic crusades, 40 banquets, a street fair or two, several weekend seminars, as well as numerous concerts and living rooms.  

Jeff Polen Band – The Jeff Polen Band is actively spreading the gospel and building the Kingdom of God with Christian-based singing and speaking. Whether on his own, helping other ministries, or as the lead singer of Polen Band, Jeff is frequently in a position of leading worship, or entertaining crowds with music as a means for opening up the door to sharing the gospel.

Jessica Crawford – Jessica was born into a family of deep faith in Bridgewater, VA. In 2011, she hit the road to Nashville, TN, and would leave in 2017 with a 5-song independently released EP, multiple regional tours, and invaluable industry and ministry experiences to become the Worship Arts Director for Fountain of Life Church in Burlington, NJ, where she currently lives and serves.
