Remembering JFK at Uptown Arts Bar

Nov. 22, 1963 – the day president John F. Kennedy was assassinated – is etched in many people’s minds.

Midtown Arts Bar owner Greg Patterson is inviting the community to an evening of remembrance this Nov. 22. The evening will focus on the life and death of the 35<th president. Patterson will serve as the evening’s host.

“The assassination of JFK is one of the seminal moments in modern history. This event is marked in the memory of all those who first heard the news and then were bonded over the events of the next four days. From Oswald and Ruby to the funeral, the world stopped in astonishment, horror and rage at what might be considered the final loss of American idealism. The loss of JFK is still surrounded in intrigue, conspiracy and high emotions, even at this 50th anniversary mark,” the Uptown Arts Bar said in a press release.

The evening will include music from the times by Sherry Lawson and the Delilahs, silent video footage, historic memorabilia and a storytelling session with The River and Prairie Story Weavers focusing on the memories of those dark days. And the audience is invited to join in.
