RED BANK, NJ—Calling all patriots! Are you a real, live niece or nephew of Uncle Sam?  Does your heart beat red, white and blue when you hear a brass band?

The 25th annual “Liberty Extravaganza,” including a concert of all-American music and an audience sing-along of patriotic songs, is planned for July 7 at the First Presbyterian Church at Red Bank (Tower Hill), 255 Harding Road. The 7:30 p.m. concert is preceded by a strawberry festival, a children’s fair, and music by the “Hot Taters” Dixieland band on the church patio beginning at 5 p.m.

This special 25th anniversary concert features music by the Liberty Choir, soloists and a brass ensemble. The choir is made up of choral singers from the church and the community. Popular features of the All-American musical program include patriotic favorites, gospel songs, and audience sing-a-longs to standards like “Yankee Doodle” and “God Bless America.” A stirring salute to the armed forces, including a military color guard, pays tribute to the men and women who have served the U.S.A. in uniform. The evening concludes with the raising of the grand flag.

Doors open at 6:45 p.m. for admission to the concert. Early arrival is advised to be sure of a seat. The concert, a Tower Hill Concert Series event, is free. An offering will be taken, with a portion going to Operation P.E.N.C.I.L, a charity created by American servicemen and women in Afghanistan to provide school supplies for Afghan children and their families. There is a $5 charge for the homemade strawberry dessert.

The church is handicapped-accessible. For additional information or to be placed on the mailing list for Tower Hill Concert Series events, call 732-747-1348.
