MIDDLEBURG - A benefit concert featuring live bands, pickers and singers is planned in September to "raise the roof" at the old Middleburg school.
Proceeds will help construct a new roof on the building that recently was purchased from Casey County Board of Education by the Middleburg School Preservation Inc.
The event will be 2-7 p.m. Sept. 9 on the campus.
The concert will feature state Rep. Vernie McGaha and the Crossroads Quartet, The Canoe Creek Boys, Phillip Cochran, The 3 D's, Charissa Gosser and Mackenzie Campbell. Concessions also will be available.
"We hope to raise $10,000 for a new roof and septic tank," said Joberta Wells, chairman of the preservation group. "This is the first major fundraiser for the school that was obtained about two months ago."
