Songwriter, Actor, Playwright, Musician and Author Presented: “Story Behind Songs”


The Lee – Jackson Dinner at the Airport Marriott, Saturday night, was musical and historical from beginning to end. Featured was a historic journey through the 1860s with Stan Clardy and his stories, songs and guitar along with the Joyful Harps featuring Heather and Raquelle Sheen.

The occasion was celebration of the birthdays of two of the nation’s greatest military leaders who were graduates of the Military Academy at West Point who have a reputation for honor and patriotism “etched in stone,” despite efforts of revisionists to distort their character.

The Spirit And Passion of “Swamp Fox”

Throughout the ages, the human heart has longed for the ability to express, act and become what it was created to be.  Since this can only happen in a FREE society, it has been a dream...not realized... until a few brave men and women with great faith and trust in the God of the Bible decided to cross an ocean; not knowing whether they would live or die.  Willing to take the chance - America was born.

The first annual Olde South Ball held at the Airport Marriott was a complete success!! Guests enjoyed a lovely southern meal, browsed tables of gift items for sale, took home door prizes, bid on one-of-a-kind items in the silent auction, and most of all stepped lively to a full evening of 1860s-era music capably played by the Blueridge Rounders.
