The 43rd president of the United States is coming to East Tennessee.
George W. Bush will be the featured speaker at the Celebrators Conference on October 25 at the LeConte Center in Pigeon Forge. According to a press release, the former president will speak at an evening honoring veterans.
The event is organized by Phil Waldrep Ministries. The conference aims to encourage mature Christians to take on leadership roles in their communities. It runs October 22-25.
“Wednesday night will be a time to celebrate what is good and right about our country and honor those who have served our nation,” said conference founder, Phil Waldrep.
Bush previously spoke at Celebrators in 2009 where he gave a non-political, patriotic address with over 10,000 people in attendance. He returned in 2011 and again in 2013.
