Dolly Parton at the Pensacola Bay Center

Posted on: July 11th, 2016 by Candy

DOLLY PARTON IS BRINGING ‘PURE & SIMPLE’ TOUR TO PENSACOLA!

 

TICKETS GO ON SALE FRIDAY, JULY 22 AT 10AM

 

Pensacola, FL (July 11, 2016) — Dolly Parton is set to bring her boundless energy to Pensacola Bay Center on November 29 as she continues her first major U.S. and Canadian tour in more than 25 years. Tickets and VIP packages for Parton’s Pure & Simple tour go on sale Friday, July 22 at 10am at the Pensacola Bay Center Box Office, online at ticketmaster.com or by calling (800) 745 – 3000.

 

As one of the hottest concert tickets of 2016, Parton’s legion of fans are destined to sell out the shows quickly. Parton’s set list will include hit songs all while weaving in a few new songs from her new album Pure & Simple, set for release this summer. She will also be playing songs that have not been heard live for decades.

 

“We’re so excited to get out there and see the fans again. I’m really looking forward to singing songs the fans have not heard in a while, as well as the hits, while debuting a few new ones off Pure & Simple,” Parton said.

 

The entertainment icon is on one of the biggest hot streaks of her career after her hugely successful TV movie, “Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors,” attracted a network record of more than 15.8 million viewers. It was the most watched movie on network TV in more than three years and was released earlier this year.

Help the Daniel Palmer Home

Posted on: February 16th, 2015 by brent

Corporal Daniel Palmer is a lifelong resident of Milton, Florida in Santa Rosa County. He came home in 2012 severely injured. Daniel is married to Becky and they have two children, Cameron and Vanessa Faith. Daniel was a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment, U.S. Marine Corps.

Daniel enlisted in the Marine Corps in June 2008. He deployed to Marjah, Afghanistan in December 2009 as a member of the 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment. On March 20, 2010 Daniel was wounded while patrolling in Marjah, Afghanistan. He stepped on an IED, improvised explosive device, causing the loss of his right foot and a portion of his lower leg. He is being treated for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, traumatic brain injury (TBI) and other medical issues.

After Daniel’s injury, he was sent to a medical facility in Germany where he was treated for a week. From there he went to National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland for almost a month. Daniel was then transferred to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where he received physical therapy treatment for about nine months.

After his treatment in Washington, Daniel was stationed at Camp Lejeune in Jacksonville, N.C. for two years. There he went through the military medical board process and was medically retired in August of 2012 with 90% disability.

Daniel and his family returned home on July 27, 2012, to a thunderous welcome-home celebration at Pensacola International Airport. Hundreds of well-wishers were in attendance. Gulf Coast Veterans In Need organized this homecoming and has worked since to support the Palmer Family’s transition to civilian life.

The Santa Rosa County Veterans Memorial Foundation and the Gulf Coast Veterans in Need groups have been diligently working to build a new home for this local hero and his family. With a January groundbreaking in Chumuckla, Florida, it is expected that the home will be completed by summer 2015.

Additional help is needed. Blackie Black, Bagdad Construction, is the home builder who is generously donating his time and leadership for this project. For information on building material donations or volunteering, please call Blackie at (850) 572-8563.

For cash contributions to Gulf Coast Veterans in Need, you can donate on-line at http://gulfcoastveterans.org/donate/ or by mailing a check to: Gulf Coast Veterans in Need, Inc., Post Office Box 13245, Pensacola, Florida 32591.
