CashboX will take the stage at 5:00 and Griggs at 8:00. For those of you who haven’t noticed, CashboX has been having a lot success and has become quite well known, especially in South Arkansas. Their desire to move away from the new “modern country” sound and lean towards bringing back southern rock, they have quickly acquired a fan base all over the United States, and even in Europe. CashboX is featured on several European “southern rock” websites and radio stations, right along with all the southern rock greats, such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, and Molly Hatchet.
CashboX has also given back to the community and fans that have gotten them where they are today. They have played benefit shows for Race for the Cure, and are set to play this year at Cablevision’s “Toys for the Tots” toy drive. They have also set up a fundraiser on their website for a special little boy, Haygen, who is the son of a very passionate and helpful CashboX fan.

In 1991, Mayor Harold West proclaimed May 4, as “Hank Thompson Day” in Monticello, AR. The dedication of a little league field was named in his honor at Jordan Park, Hwy. 278 East.
The family is hosting the “ Hank Thompson Day Celebration” on Sunday, May 2, 2010 @ 3:00 pm to be held at the little league field named in his honor.
Free Food and drinks will be served, activities for the children and fellowship for the community as well. The recipient of the second memorial scholarship will also be named during the celebration.
Everyone is invited to attend and join in some family fun in honor of our beloved Hank Thompson.
In case of inclement weather the event will be inside the Sadie Johnson Community Building at the same address.
