Josh Turner to Perform First Responder Appreciation Concert in the Region

MCA Nashville recording artist Josh Turner is set to perform a First Responder Appreciation Concert at the Porter County Fairgrounds on Saturday, August 21. The concert is a new addition to the MAAC Foundation’s annual First Responder Demonstrations and Appreciation Day held earlier that afternoon at the MAAC Campus. The event will highlight the skills taught and learned on the MAAC campus. “We like to go big at the MAAC, and we couldn’t think of a better way to expand our event and show appreciation for the brave men and women that choose to wear the uniform,” says Celina Weatherwax, President of the MAAC Foundation. Turner’s chart-topping hits include “Your Man,” “Would You Go With Me,” “Why Don’t We Just Dance,” and “All Over Me,” and for nearly two decades, he has been one of country music’s most recognizable voices.

Tickets for the concert are on sale now at . Gates will open at 6 pm at the fairgrounds with the concert beginning at 8 pm. All seating will be general admission – attendees are asked to bring a chair or blanket. No outside food or coolers will be allowed. All proceeds will support training for firefighters, law enforcement and EMS personnel. The Multi Agency Academic Cooperative (MAAC) has developed a state-of-the-art campus providing safety, emergency preparedness, and response training, and established on a 4.5-acre parcel in Valparaiso to meet the training requirements and objectives of departments locally, regionally, and statewide.
