Veterans Open Mic for Stories, Poetry, Music


What better way for veterans to celebrate Independence Day weekend than with an Open Mic Event?

It's a chance to tell stories, recite poetry, share reflections and music.

Sponsored by the Art2Action Inc. and Sacred Grounds Coffee House, the monthly Veterans & Community Open Mic is this Sunday, July 6, 2014 from 6:30-9 p.m. at the Sacred Grounds Coffee House, 4819 E. Busch Blvd., Tampa, FL.

Veterans, their families, caregivers and supporters are welcome to share in the evening. Suggested topics in light of the holiday:

  • What does Independence mean to you?
  • What is Freedom?
  • And anything else you like to reflect on or express this time of year.

The Veterans & Community Open Mic is set up as a space for creative self expression and community building. Local artists are encouraged to participate and share in what local veterans have to say.
