A special guest vocalist, Ashley Nicole Wheeler, recently chosen Miss Southwestern Oklahoma State University Outstanding Teen, will join the band.
"The recently remodeled Activity Center is a great location, but the number of tickets we can sell is limited," said J. W. Sollis, the local contact for the event. "It will be an evening of the very best in dance music. Anyone who wants to attend should buy tickets early."
