JOEMC members…bring the family out for an evening of fun, food, door prizes, and entertainment. On Friday, March 29, the co-op will hold its Annual Meeting of Members at the American Legion Building/Onslow County Fairgrounds located at 146 Broadhurst Road in Jacksonville.

Highlighting this year’s meeting will be special entertainment from North Carolina’s very own Sweet Potato Pie.

Sweet Potato Pie is not your traditional cookie cutter band. The group, which has been performing together for nearly two decades, is best known for their distinct harmonies and entertaining stage shows. Pie’s blend of bluegrass, country, and gospel has created a new musical style called “sweetgrass”, which includes elements of country, classical, blues and bluegrass. Audiences call this group classy, funny, warm and entertaining! When taste matters—have a serving of Sweet Potato Pie.

In addition to Sweet Potato Pie, local entertainment will also be performing. There will be barbeque sandwiches and soft drinks, a clown for the kids, giveaways and informative displays. Don’t forget one lucky co-op member will win a recently retired fleet vehicle (in “as is” condition).
