Poole memorial concert Saturday
Friends have planned the Tyler Poole Memorial Concert Event at Gold Hill Park on Saturday from noon-6 p.m.
Tyler went to East Rowan High School and died in a car wreck April 9, 2003. He is the son of Gary Poole of Gold Hill and Terry Sossamon Poole of Mt. Pleasant.
The Remingtones will be performing on stage while an artist will be painting a portrait of Tyler on a large canvas — the Indoctrination Experiment. Throughout the performance, a poet will read some work he has prepared for the day.
Other events that will take place throughout the day include Vestique Fashion Show, Cornhole Tournament, Fishers of Men will host a Casting Contest, raffle, silent auction; dance and musical performances by: Mallory Honeycutt, former participant in the Miss America system at the local and state levels; Kristalyn Gill, Miss Rowan County Outstanding Teen, and Steffi Sides.
