JOEMC members, bring the family out for an evening of free fun, food, door prizes and entertainment. On Friday, March 31, Jones-Onslow EMC will hold its Annual Meeting of Members at the Onslow County Fairgrounds/American Legion Building located at 146 Broadhurst Road in Jacksonville.

Highlighting this year’s meeting will be special entertainment from North Carolina’s very own The Gravy Boys. Hailing from the Raleigh/Durham area, the group’s music draws deep from the well of our country’s diverse musical heritage. Performing Acoustic Americana music, The Gravy Boys add a cup of country, a pinch of roots rock, a handful of honky-tonk, a splash of bluegrass, a dash of hobo folk, stirring vigorously, and then left to simmer until the pot bubbles over. Their high energy shows feature heartfelt vocal harmonies, boot-stomping rhythms, lively stage banter and honest musicianship.

In addition to The Gravy Boys, local musical groups will also be performing. There will be hot dogs and soda, a clown for the kids, games and giveaways, and informative displays. And don’t forget…as has become an annual meeting tradition, one lucky JOEMC member will win a recently retired fleet vehicle (“as is” condition).

Registration and displays open at 5:30pm, local musical entertainment takes the stage at 5:45pm, and the busi­ness meeting will start at 7:00pm. At 8:00pm, The Gravy Boys take the stage.
