Labor Day weekend toes will be tapping, and feet will be patting, as yet another audience of the Ultimate Oldies Show sways in time and sings along to various remembered melodies performed by a cast of talented local singers and band members.

"Can you believe we are getting ready to enjoy this extravaganza once again?" a Rector Community Center spokesperson offered. "Everybody marks their calendars for this event. It's a favorite and it is going to be another sellout."

In what has rapidly become a favorite tradition of Labor Day Weekend in Rector, the show is not to be missed. The spectacular is set for 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 2, at the Rector Community Center, and serves to kick off the holiday weekend.

Beginning with the Ultimate Oldies Show, activities will continue throughout the the entire Labor Day weekend, and in the process will swell Rector's population to double or even triple what's posted on the city limit signs. Fans are encouraged to get their tickets in advance, as The Ultimate Oldies Show has been a sellout for each of its previous performances at Rector. "The phone is ringing and we're selling lots of reserved seating tickets. This show is on its way to a performance before a standing-room only crowd," said the spokesperson.

Tickets are on sale at the Rector Water Office, located on Stewart Street, at Glen Sain Motors in Rector and at Post Net in Paragould. The 105 reserve tickets are going fast at $20 each. Holders of this ticket are guaranteed a padded seat within the front three sections. General admission tickets are $15 each and these seats are not located as close to the front of the performance area.

School class reunion groups, family groups and groups of friends should make plans now and secure the necessary tickets for the concert by visiting one of the ticket offices or by calling 870-595-3035.

All profits from the concert will be used to support the Rector Community Center, and will allow more necessary upkeep and upgrades, many of which are already being noticed by the public. All improvements to the center are a result of the Rector Community Center Committee's diligence in fund-raising and the generous bequest from the Melvin Crockett estate.
