The Civic Center will open its doors at 6:30 p.m. for the band event. There will be a $3 cover charge per person, or $5 for couples. Bands performing for the evening will include Country Feel, Marshall Gibson Band and Triple OT Buck. Performances begin at 7 p.m., with more auctions throughout the evening at the Civic Center. The Jaycees will provide beer and mixed drinks while Smoking Joe’s BBQ will provide food during the evening band performances.

“At approximately 8:45, we will turn the house lights on and recognize all the police, auxiliary, FD’s (fire departments) and volunteers who helped during the fire,” Silver said.

The committee consisted of Silver and Emmy Combs, Carle Hoopeston employees; Loni Gress, City of Hoopeston employee; Jim Bowers, Hoopeston Rotary Club; Brad Hardcastle, Hoopeston Jaycees, and Jamie Mowery of WHPO.
