The Rocktoberfest event on Thursday, October 27 was a great success. Roy Simmons, owner of Rockingham Ready-Mix and Republic Truss in Harrisonburg, welcomed over 1,500 business vendors and customers to his venue to enjoy food, music, and a message. Rockingham Ready-Mix’s property is right next-door to Wingfield Ministries, so to share in partnership with an event like this one was valuable for both Roy and Steve.


Audra McLaughlin, one of the Victory Weekend performers, shared of her talents by singing the National Anthem and a few other songs. Steve then showed his appreciation for the crowd and thanked the 35 present veterans, military personnel, and first responders for serving our country. Each American hero received a medal and literature to help them live to the best of their abilities.

Dale Blose, Director of Logistics, commented on how many people came up to both him and Steve to share their thoughts. “They said, ‘Thanks a lot for what you are doing.’ It meant a lot to them, and they felt honored. It helps us to know that we are doing the right thing.”

Steve enjoyed this time at the event and looks forward to working with Roy again in the future.
