Remember: The King on Saturday

T he Whitehall Grange will “Shake, Rattle and Roll” this Saturday as Elvis comes to town.

Or, at least, an award-winning version of the King.

Joe Ramsey will entertain those looking to relive the Elvis experience this Saturday, Nov. 20, from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m. at the Whitehall Grange Hall, located on County Route 12 just south of the village.

“This is a great way to get people out to enjoy a night of great music and dancing with an award-winning Elvis impersonator,” said Grange president Howard Ryder. “He does a set of music that represents the early years of Elvis, then he will take a break and deejay, and then do a set that represents the older Elvis.”

Ryder said the concert is being put on to help benefit the Grange and work on their building.

“Hopefully, this event generates some funds to get some work done on the building and get on with things in the Grange,” said Ryder. “We need to do work on the foundation and replace some windows, along with the general maintenance work that goes with the operation of a building.”

Tickets for the event will be $20 at the door and will include light refreshments as part of the ticket.

“If people want to come and enjoy the music, they can do that,” said Ryder. “If they want to come to dance, they can do that, too.”

There will also be a 50-50 raffle as part of the event.

Ryder said that they felt lucky to have a top-notch impersonator coming to Whitehall.

“My sister knows his wife and has been to a lot of his shows and loves it,” said Ryder. “He has won several contests and has done shows throughout the area.”
