MUSKOGEE, Okla. — A group of local Muskogee musicians have set out to aid Muskogee War Memorial Park, impacted by flooding damage, with a benefit this weekend.

The benefit will be July 27 at 7 p.m. at the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame and will include acts such as Travis Bond & The Rebel Souls, The Billy Arnett Band, and Ahna Jennings. Cost is $10 per person.

Officials say the park and USS Batfish suffered more than $1 million in damages from the flooding in the area across May.

“The community spirit and pride within Green Country has really shown since the flood that occurred in late May. To see a group like AMMP (Association of Muskogee Musicians and Performers) offer to throw everyone a wonderful night to raise money, celebrate life, and relieve stress – it was a blessing,” said Brent Trout, Executive Director of the Muskogee War Memorial Park: Home of the USS Batfish.
