“Letters From Home” presents “We Gotta Get Out of This Place,” a musical tribute to Vietnam, on Saturday, March 2, at the AAD Shriners building, 5152 Miller Trunk Highway, Hermantown.
The show, a part of the Cloquet Rotary Club’s March for Veterans Celebration, begins at 8 p.m.
“In 2010, Erinn Dearth founded Letters From Home in Winston-Salem, N.C., with a mission to tour the country honoring our nation’s veterans, active military heroes and their families, by reviving patriotism through music,” according to a press release.
Dearth, who produced the show at the suggestion of her father, a Coast Guard veteran, has toured several versions of “Letters From Home” in more than 40 states. She is also a national tap dance champion and has appeared in over 200 productions and movies. Dearth will perform Saturday with co-stars Courtney Groves and Dan Beckmann.

The Cloquet Rotary Club’s March for Veterans Celebration begins Saturday with a social at 5:30 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m., a silent auction and entertainment. The event is open to the public, with the intent of educating communities about post-traumatic stress syndrome.
Speakers include U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Command Sgt. Maj. John S. Werner, who served in the Afghanistan Engineer District-South, and John Marshall, captain of the Duluth Honor Guard, who was seriously wounded in the Persian Gulf War in 1991.
Most proceeds from the celebration will be donated to area veterans to help them adjust, cope and heal after returning home from active duty. The remaining funds will go toward the Cloquet Rotary Club.
