Nampa, Idaho - The Treasure Valley God & Country Family Festival Committee announced the Dove award winning gospel music artists SONICFLOOD will be the special guests at the annual Treasure Valley God & Country event to honor all Military and Veterans with special emphasis on those personnel and their families currently serving in the military.
The 38th annual event will provide many activities including featuring many of the individual ministries and services, which help the families of the Treasure Valley. Mayor Tom Dale will present the Annual Public Servant Award to a public employee for exemplary service to the community.
SONICFLOOD, a Christian worship band will be featured as the 2005 musical guest with a special free concert. They have just release their latest CD, This Generation, a follow-up to 2003’s Cry Holy; This Generation sees SONICFLOOD entering a new season that includes welcoming new players, a season that front-man Rick Heil hopes will lead people to a definitive understanding that God’s heart is truly good. It sounds obvious. After all, we learn about God’s goodness from our earliest days in Sunday school.
Mike Locknane Chairman of this year’s event said, “This event continues to grow and has become a genuine showcase for various ministries in the valley to present themselves to the God & Country audience as we continue to honor those serving our community through military service and positions in public service.” Sponsors have provided funding so we can continue to offer this event FREE of any admission charge.
The rally will again be held at the Idaho Center Amphitheater on Can-Ada Road in Nampa for the Wednesday, June 29, 2005 event (always the Wednesday before the 4th of July). Family activities begin at 6:00 PM, special presentations, speakers and public acknowledgments at 8:00 PM, and the full musical presentation beginning after the special presentations with the Treasure Valley’s best fireworks completing the evening at approximately 10:15 PM.
