Elvis & Me: In the Army

 

Date: Wednesday, May 6th
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Meeting Room

Learn the personal side of Elvis that’s been kept a secret for many years.

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to see and hear from one of Elvis’ closest friends who lived just blocks away from him while they were stationed in the Army together. George Young was a Mercury Recording Artist with a new record, Can’t Stop Me, and was slated to be on Dick Clark’s Bandstand — and then he got his draft notice. Elvis got his draft notice about the same time and they both were stationed in Germany. Find out how they met, became close friends during and after their time in the Army, and shared George’s guitar.
