Pre Veteran’s Appreciation Day 2017


With today being Veterans Day we wanted to show our appreciation for our men and women of the United States Armed Forces by announcing our third annual Veteran’s Appreciation Day! Veterans and their families should mark their calendar for June 17th 2017 so they can be sure to attend this iconic event.

While we do not have everything solidified as to the events that will be held during the day, we will be keeping somewhat similar fashion to our previous Veteran’s Appreciation Days.

  1. Activities during the day for families to partake in
  2. Evening concert in the AT&T Summit Stadium

As more information is confirmed we will be updating our event page and making posts through our official Facebook page, both have been linked below.

For those that aren’t a veteran or have one in your family try and attend a Veterans Day event in your area; a parade, service, or banquet for veterans. Roy Rogers said, “We can’t all be heroes; someone has to sit on the curb and clap as they go by.” Veterans Day is a great opportunity to do just that.
