Valentine’s Party in Saluda to Benefit Amphitheater SALUDA , NC – The Saluda Small Town Main Street Promotions Team will host a Valentine's Party on Friday, February 14, 2014, at the Saluda  Fire & Rescue Department located at 199 Walnut Drive off of Greenville Street in Saluda.   Celebrate Valentine's Day with friends or that special person and enjoy a night out with dinner and dancing.   You will be supporting the Saluda Small Town Main Street Amphitheater Fund that will be used to construct a new amphitheater at Top of the Grade at McCreery Park, as well as benefitting the Saluda Fire & Rescue Department.   “After the success of the Top of the Grade concerts this past summer, it became evident that the old skate board park was an excellent venue for outdoor events.  The Saluda Small Town Main Street Promotions Team came up with a conceptual design for a natural amphitheater fashioned after similar amphitheaters in the surrounding towns.

The Saluda City Commissioners approved the conceptual plan and now we need to raise the funds for the materials to start the project.  The goal is to have it built by early May.  The amphitheater can be used for all kinds of outdoor community events such as school plays, weddings, and other City functions,” says organizer, Cathy Jackson. Dine on a delicious meal of steak or chicken, baked potato, tossed green salad, rolls, drinks, and dessert served from 5:00 pm until 8:00 pm.   Enjoy listening or dancing to music from the 60's and Rock & Roll by the band, “R&R” with Rodney Gibson and Rick Gunderson from “Sound Investment.”

Tickets are $25 per person, with $5 per person to be donated to the Saluda Fire Department for their use as needed.  You will receive a Donation Acknowledgement for income tax purposes for the $5 donation to the SFD. Children, ages 5 and above, may attend.Ages 5 - 12:  $15 each (Entre will be chicken)Ages 13 & above:  $25 each (Entre will be steak or chicken) A photographer will be on hand to take your picture with someone you love in front of a Valentine's Day backdrop.  You can preview your picture before deciding to purchase, and it will be framed while you wait.
