ASHLAND, Ore. -- On Friday July 23, 2021 a free concert will be held at Emigrant Lake to honor the wildfire victims and responders of the South Obenchain and the Almeda Fires. The concert will begin at 7 p.m. at shelter D.
This concert is sponsored by Southern Oregon Jobs with Justice (SOJWJ) as well other community helpers.
There will be entertained by folk and labor singer George Mann as well an information for anyone who may still be struggling from these fires.
Jason Houk is an organizer with SOJWJ and says with COVID-19 restrictions lifted across the state they see this as the perfect opportunity to come together in support for one another.
"We're going to use this opportunity to talk about our efforts, the successes, and the challenges ahead," Houk said. "And hopefully help get people excited about working together. And again, with the goal of trying to get everybody back into their homes."
There will be some food and drinks provided.
