Another concert Sunday, pancake breakfast Monday

A weekend full of events at the Ro-Na Theater will be headlined by Dwight Icenhower’s Elvis tribute concert Friday from 7:30-9 p.m.

Icenhower began his Elvis career when he was 16 years old and is now world-renowned, performing shows all over the world, and claiming more than 30 awards.

The concert is one of the biggest productions the Friends of Ironton has ever taken on, but president Rick Jansen said the group hopes to continue with shows of this caliber in the future.
