*The Blue Ribbon Jam is being held to help raise money in honor of the families of two 4th Fighter Wing airmen killed in July in Afghanistan, Capt. Mark McDowell and Capt. Thomas Gramith.

*The concert will be held Thursday from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. in the parking lot behind the Waynesborough House on Center Street, the site of the summer Center Street Jam series. The music is expected to start at 6.

*Admission is $2.

*All proceeds, including concession sales, will go to the fund.

*Performing will be The Mighty Saints of Soul, a local beach music band. Its members said they wanted to do something extra to let the military personnel stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base know how much the community supports their role. All four have military ties.
