The Truman Area Community Network
Due to the tragic collapse of the Clinton Elks Lodge Building on the square Monday evening, June 26th, all events, that had been scheduled to be on the square, have been moved to the Clinton High School area, 6th and Clinton Streets. The carnival, all vendors and crafters, along with the stage and entertainment areas will be located on the high school football field, practice field and parking area. As this is the 100th Anniversary of the Elks Lodge in Clinton and they are a major part of this years' event, we want to continue on, in their honor, and hold this annual event which recognizes our veteran's and honors our country.
All event dates and times will remain the same. Location is the only thing that will change.
The Grand Parade will be held on Saturday, July 1st as planned. The parade route will be changed for this year also. The parade will begin at the usual location of 2nd and Clinton and will then go south on 2nd Street.

In January 2006, original members Justin Popplewell, Jimmy Wilson and Matt Phillips, all originally from Clinton were joined by Clinton native, Skyler Browning.
They regularly play venues in and around the KC/Lawrence area. In April, Pat McCormick of Olathe, KS joined the band to bring one more dimension to this alternative rock band. Recently signed by an independent record label, Icon Clad Records, they are currently in the studio recording their first full length album, which should release at the end of summer 2006.

Is It the fifties and sixties all over again? It sure seems that way when the Krazy Kats are around! Their song "Still Rockin' After All These Years" says it all! The Kats were formed in 1957, when guitarist Lee Dresser, piano man Willie Craig, and drummer Fred Fletcher, three Moberly, Missouri high-schoolers, decided they wanted to rock 'n' roll just like Elvis, Jerry Lee, Fats, and all the rest of their favorites. Ike was president, the Mickey Mouse Club was on TV and everyone was trying out their new hula hoop. Everyone except the Krazy Kats that is, they were too busy rehearsing their rock 'n' roll music. They would meet over at Willie's house, Freddy would ride over on his bike with his snare drum in the basket, and the boys got down to business!
By the time February 14th rolled around, the Krazy Kats were as ready as any fifteen-year-olds could be, and they had their first gig at the annual Sweetheart Dance in the Moberly High School Cafeteria. At that time they only knew six songs, so they played all six and Freddy threw in a drum solo for good measure. Well, the crowd liked it, the band loved it, and from that moment the Krazy Kats knew exactly what they wanted to do! Of course there were a lot of changes since that Valentine's day way back In '57. For example, they now have better equipment - electronic keyboards, wireless guitars, and Freddy even has a bigger basket on his bike.
The Krazy Kats will be performing on Thursday, June 29th, at 7:00 p.m. on the Southside Stage.
Yes. They're two of the most engaging singers and all round entertainers to hit the country marketplace... maybe ever. First and foremost, these guys can sing and will burst into a harmonized song, acapella, at the drop of a hat. Young and energetic, dancing just comes naturally to them. Their show captures people with amazing synchronized dance steps, audience participation, comedy, and flat out great music. The LoCash boys know how to put on a show.
Perhaps that's because they've been choreographing major shows and dancers of all ages for years... not to mention hosting concerts and private parties for convention groups from around the world. 2005 the LoCash Cowboys hit the USA with a national tour, performing at all kinds of fairs, festivals, and parties. Locally, the LoCash boys have been galvanizing audiences for the last few years at the legendary Wildhorse Saloon, where they've become a must see experience for any Nashville tourist. These guys are the real deal and offer a unique package that's guaranteed to get audiences pumped. Chris Lucas and Preston Brust believe that LoCash is a frame of mind, an attitude. It's never forgetting who your real friends are and where you come from. It's about finding a way to have loads of fun without tons of money - About laughing along with friends, family, and even strangers .That's LoCash. Fun-filled, entertainment and energetic.
The LoCash Cowboys will perform Saturday, July 1st, at 8:00 p.m. on the main stage.
Jimmie was born in Jacksonville, Florida - a city known mostly for its military connections. As Jimmie got older, that was all about to change. Jimmie's cousin Ronnie, along with a group of high school buddies, were about to put the town on the map as the Home of Southern Rock. That group was Lynyrd Skynyrd. As Jimmie grew, so did Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the young Jimmie began to find that he wanted to follow in cousins Ronnie, Donnie and Johnny's footsteps i and become a singer.
After years of suffering the tribulations of rock and roll - incompetent managers and agents, group breakups, and shrinking markets, Jimmie decided to move west to make a fresh start. It wasn't long before he reformed a red-hot \ southern rock band. His fresh start landed with a national tour, and the rest, as they say, became history. Jimmie has not been off the road since. With conviction Jimmie states, "I have always believed that music can change people's lives and if I can do something to make someone's life a little more enjoyable, then I feel I have done my job well. That's why I am here and that is also the reason why there is Southern Rock."
Jimmie Van Zant will perform on Saturday, July 1st, at 10:00 p.m., on the Main Stage.

Spreading the eternal message of Christ without compromise is the foundation and cornerstone of any career in the ministry of the Gospel. Ed O'Neal joined the Dixie Melody Boys in 1961 and be- came owner and manager of the quartet just a few years later. During the past three decades, the Dixie Melody Boys have enjoyed tremendous success. Over the years, The Dixie Melody Boys have been featured on several television programs and per- formed at theme parks across the country. As the Dixie Melody Boys have found, the miles on the road may sometimes be long, but God continues to bless the hard work of His faithful servants, as He continually offers new excite- ment with each new endeavor. Members of the group include O'Neal, Andrew King, Dustin Sweatman and Dan Keeton.
Greg comes from a long line of musical talent. As a child, he learned to sing har- mony with his mother and family at holiday gatherings in Alabama. He has performed with greats such as "The Southmen" and as a lead singer for the "Blackwood Quartet." He's been heard on over 60 radio jingles and has provided backup vocals on numerous recording sessions. Greg works over 100 dates a year, in churches of all denominations, doing concerts. He also performs at schools, weddings, and at many special events.
Greg now hosts his own 30-minute Weekly Television Show: "Backstage with Greg Crowe" featuring Christian artists from across the country. It's being distributed to local Cable Stations throughout the U.S.
Two sisters and a brother have come together as 2nd Generation to continue their heritage of singing and ministry. In July 2005, they released their first nationwide single, "Hanging On A Nail". The response to the message in this song as it has hit the airwaves has been, as one DJ quoted, "short of miraculous".
2nd Generation has appeared at churches. State Fairs, The Grand Palace in Branson, MO, Trinity Broadcasting Network and many other concert events. Regardless of the setting, ministry is their number one priority. Their mission is that one life is changed as they leave a 2nd Generation concert because of a word spoken or a song that is sung.
In November, 2001, Tony made his debut in Southern Gospel Music. Since that time, he has had the opportunity to share the stage with many other talented artists. As God opens the doors for Tony to sing and share his testimony, he is stepping forward to help others experience that same type of personal relationship he has found in his life. Tony has been in concert with Stephen Hill, Greg Crowe, New Horizons, Mark Bishop, The Andersons, The Praters, Ed Enoch & Golden Covenant, Ivan Parker, Jeff & Sheri Easter, The Lesters, N'Harmony. The Nelons, and many more.

Ten other prizes will also be given so if you make it to the finals, you are a winner!
For just $5, you get a chance each evening to have your number drawn, and that number could qualify you to win the Grand Prize (John Deere 717 riding lawn mower) on Saturday night. You also could win a number of other prizes, including overnight accommodations, tickets to sporting events, concerts and fairs, theme park tickets, gift certificates and much more. The more badges you buy, the better your chances are of winning.
Commemorative badges, tee shirts, sweatshirts, polo shirts and caps imprinted with this year's logo and theme will be available for sale at the Olde Glory Days Store in the Depot. The store sells flags, red, white and blue bunting for decorating and display and many more items to promote your 4th of July theme. The store will be open at the Depot beginning June 19th and on the courthouse lawn during Olde Glory Days.
