WADDINGTON — On August 9, join the Waddington community in honoring the men and women who protect and serve. From 1 p.m. until 10 p.m. celebrate with them at the “Help the Heroes Summer Bash.” The event will be held at Island View Park (at the end of Main Street). It will feature a delicious barbecue by the Seaway Smokehouse, Firemen’s Poker, Texas Horseshoes, bounce house, water slide, frosty beer and soda, and nine hours of live music. Performers include Tom Murray Jr. (rock, soft rock, folk), Rob Larrabee (country), Echoes in Black (Johnny Cash tribute), and Atomic Precipitation (rock).
