Old Glory Run coverage from May 16, 2009
As part of DigElog ROCORI’s extended coverage of the 2nd annual Old Glory Run, we had a chance to catch up with John Swanson, one of the inspirations for the Old Glory Run. Swanson, a 10-year military veteran lost his leg in combat. Humble by nature, he often tries to avoid the spotlight but at the same time understands the importance of sharing his story. Like so many other veterans, he appreciates the efforts of people like Curt and Pam Karls that go the extra mile to help reintegrate returning soldiers back into society.
In this story, Swanson discusses how life has changed for him since the last time we saw him. He also shares how the Disabled American Veterans (D.A.V.) has helped with his medical issues over the past year. For those that are not familiar with the Old Glory Run, all proceeds from the event are donated to the Minnesota Chapter of the D.A.V. This is a must see story, and as the 4th of July approaches it is a great reminder of the sacrifices that others make for our freedom.
Tickets are will-call only and will not be mailed out in advance. Concert goers should bring their receipt to the concert any time after 11:00 a.m. on March 24, 2012 to pick up their tickets.(doors open for concert at 1:00 PM for a 2:30 p.m. show.) You may also pickup tickets at The First National Bank Of Cold Spring between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 P.M. M-F.
The 2011 concert held at the ROCORI High School auditorium was packed fore the benefit concert that featured "The Fabulous Armadillos". A croud of over 300 was dancing in their seats as the band played vintage rock n' roll and favorites from the 60's, 70's and 80's. In this song, "Proud Mary", the version first made famous by Tina Turner, the band has the crowd out of their seats and cheering for more.
