It's July, and that means it's almost time for one of our favorite Manor of the Plains traditions. The Armouraires Quartet will be back by popular demand at the 19th Annual Southern Gospel Christian Concert on Monday, July 31.
The concert takes place at 6 p.m. at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, 3231 N. 14th. Admission is a Dodge City Days lapel pin. A free will collection will be taken to benefit the Good Samaritan program, which provides support to Manor of the Plains residents who have outlived their financial resources.
The Armouraires have been headlining our annual benefit concert for many years, and we're always excited to welcome them back. Members of the Wichita-based quartet have almost 50 combined years in the ministry. Their mission is "to go where God leads and let the Lord use our personal testimonies and music to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ." On their website, www.armourairesquartet.com, they add: "We will provide a caring, sharing and healing performance which will be the expression of God’s grace, equip believers, and transform the broken, battered and forsaken."
The concert is a tradition as well for the annual Dodge City Days festival.
This year the event takes place from July 28 to Aug. 6 with everyone's favorite events, including a PRCA rodeo, cattle drive, Western parade, barbecue contest and more live music. Find the complete schedule online at www.dodgecitydays.com. This year's theme, "Raise a Ruckus," pays tribute to the 60th anniversary of Boothill Museum's Long Branch Variety Show. Lapel pins are $4 each, available at multiple locations throughout the city.
