PARC Offers Free Parking for Dec. 3 "Coyote's Acoustic Concert"
One of the largest collections of country music singers will be performing at KFC Yum! Center on Wednesday, December 3, in honor of the retirement of 35-year 97.5 WAMZ host, Coyote Calhoun, and PARC wants to join the celebration by accepting donations in lieu of the $10 parking fee.

Items for care packages to be sent to PARC’s adopted 101st Airborne unit. Donations will be accepted at any nearby PARC garage. Suggested items include: candy, magazines (hunting, fitness, etc.), beef jerky, music CD’s, DVD’s, chewing tobacco, protein bars, granola bars, mixed nuts and dried fruit, multi-vitamins, foot powder, Bengay, eye drops, Neosporin, homemade cookies, chewing gum, hot sauce, 5 hr. energy, etc….
