For many, Memorial Day weekend is associated with barbecues, sunshine, and fun. Not that there is anything wrong with this outlook, but for others, they take the holiday to heart. Its true meaning is a day of observance for the men and women who have sacrificed their lives in the military service for our country.
Since 2010, Massachusetts Fallen Heroes (MFH) has dedicated every day to honoring the lives of Massachusetts men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, all while supporting Gold Star Families and empowering Veterans. For Team Stacy, the planning has commenced for the second annual Patriot Week, a 10-day, one-of-a-kind series of events taking place on May 20th – May 29th.
To kick-start the week, MFH’s Patriot Fest will return at the Lawn on D on Saturday, May 20th. This year’s concert will feature two VERY special guests straight out of Nashville, Billboard Top 200 Tyler Farr and Grammy nominee Eric Paslay! Local talents, Dalton and the Sheriffs and Louie Bello will also perform for the crowd. Tickets for Patriot Fest will go on sale Thursday, March 9th at 10:00 AM through Ticketmaster—so, mark your calendars! All proceeds will benefit MFH.
Team Stacy will be in the midst of it all for the second year in a row and look forward to having Tyler Farr and Eric Paslay in Boston for this special event, as their attendance speaks volumes to the impact MFH has made on so many. It has been a pleasure to experience firsthand the growth and development of MFH and the nation-wide support the organization has received over the years. MFH’s obligation to remember the Fallen who fought for our country during the War on Terrorism, as well as its commitment to supporting and uniting local Veterans and their families is incredibly inspiring, and we are honored to continue spreading the word of its mission!
