Meet Munchak at Kroger this week

Stop by Kroger on Memorial Boulevard Friday evening for a chance to meet Titans Head Coach and Pro Football Hall of Famer Mike Munchak.

The Titans Caravan will visit the Murfreesboro Kroger at 2325 Memorial Blvd. at 5:30 p.m. on Friday, May 4, where Munchak will sign autographs and greet fans. Titans Mascot T-RAC and the voice of the Titans Mike Keith will also be on-hand.

“We hope everyone will come out and join us for this fun event on Friday,” store manager Rick Parker said. “We want the Titans to remember Murfreesboro as one of the best stops on this year’s Caravan schedule.”  

This is the 14th year for the Caravan, according to a press release. This year, 50 stops in 11 days are planned for the Tennessee, Alabama and Southern Kentucky tour, which began Monday. Kroger will host seven of this year’s stops as the Official Grocery Sponsor of the Tennessee Titans and the Caravan.
